Instructor Biography

Anneke Camstra, Teaching Entrepeneurs Animation: The Easy Way To Use Video

If you need short videos.

If  you don't want to be in front of the camera. 

But you still need that , fast, easy cheap and  professional video, then I have a solution:

Let me teach  you step by step the easiest way by using animation softwares. The result is entertaining, to the point and very effective.

The tools that are available now simply did not exist 2-3 years ago. Only highly paid specialists could make these animations. But now you can too!

In my 30+ year career in the art world, I was surprised to find software that allow you to make videos messages, animations, eCards, promo's, explainer videos and much more.  Here’s the best news: they are very affordable.

But don't believe me, try it out for yourself in the new animation software like Explaindio, Powtoon, VideoScribe, Go Animate and a few more.

My courses will make it as easy as possible for you to start. You will enjoy the process because creating animations is really a lot of fun. My lessons are step-by-step over-the-shoulder videos; you cannot go wrong. And, I will answer questions that you post in the questions area.

Artist and teacher since more than 30 years, working with artists from all over the world,  in squatted studios in the Bijlmer, Amsterdam 

Housebuilder and expat in Portugal and France.

Proud citizen of Amsterdam, in the Netherlands.


#Experienced  teacher on Udemy with 13 courses 

# 7800 students

Don’t wait. Take one of my courses now. You’ll be delighted that you did. I’ll see you inside the courses.

Let me teach you animation!
