Some powerful skills at your fingertips  

There are very few detailed courses on advanced animations using PowerPoint for videos.  

These animations are visually comparable with the ones made with much harder to learn software such as Adobe After Effects – but being made with PowerPoint – you’ll have the advantage of this intuitive, flexible and easy to learn software.  

This course is perfect for anyone who creates video in PowerPoint at a beginner level, for branding, for marketing or selling or anyone who wants to take the ability of his video creation to the next level.  

Contents and Overview  

The course has over 30 lectures and over 3 hours of focused, no fluff content.  

I designed this course to be 95% practice, being completed with working files, with texts, photos, images and audio files. These will help you work alongside me to complete every lecture, because only by practising you’’ll become better and will have quick results.  

My teaching style is to show you step by step how to do every task, as if you’re looking over my shoulder. This way you’ll see what almost nobody’s showing or explaining to you regarding the advanced animations you can develop in PowerPoint.  

In this course you’ll learn to visually impress with the videos you’re doing with PowerPoint, videos you can offer as a service for others.  

Or, if you have a local business, you’ll be able to make professionally looking videos, that get more eyeballs on your business.  

Don’t want to offer services and you don’t have a business? No problem! After finishing this course, you’ll be able to impress your colleagues, friends, parents or peers with the videos you’ll make by using these skills. Nobody will believe you’ve made them with PowerPoint! 

Here's what some of my students said after taking this course:

"So far, in this course, I've learned more PPT "tricks" than in 3 other courses put together - absolutely brilliant!!"

"I loved this course Claudiu! It was very practical and showed the basics but then how to "fancy" things up to really look jazzy! There are times that I found it difficult to follow the timing aspects of the animations (which is arguably probably the hardest part to learn) in my opinion. Very well done! I will be purchasing future courses from you I'm sure. Milla"

"This is a great course to get to using powerpoint quickly! I went through the course in a week, was very easy to follow and has increased my knowledge ten fold. Great job with the course! I will be purchasing other courses from this teacher, thank you!"

Upon the completion of this course you’ll have the ability to create wonderful videos with PowerPoint, by using advanced animations and motion graphics and you’ll receive a verifiable Certificate of Completion.

In addition to this you will receive bonus material that will reinforce and improve the skills you’ve learned and there is also a 30 day 100% money back guarantee from Udemy in case you’re not satisfied with the course. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.  

So… what are you waiting for? Take this course and let’s start!

Who this course is for:
  • Freelancers, Youtubers, vloggers, internet marketers, video marketers, local business owners or solopreneurs and anyone who wants to take their PowerPoint video skills to an advanced level.
