Description

Have you ever wanted to make cool motion graphics or add professional titles and lower thirds to your videos? The truth is that you can do this with no experience. Many sites sell inexpensive After Effects templates that can really spice up your videos.

I've been professionally creating motion graphics for years. But sometimes, it's easier to just use a template that someone else has created. Why spend hours re-creating something that is already out there? Yet editing these templates can be daunting if you've never opened After Effects before. This course is for you.

What will you be able to do after taking this course?

  • Open an After Effects project and navigate the program
  • Edit and customize templates with your own text, photos, video, and graphics
  • Export the template to use in other video projects or for immediate online sharing

This course includes:

  • A step-by-step video guide to working with After Effects templates
  • A free video titles template to use in this course and for your own projects
  • Bonus tutorials that show how to edit a variety of templates including slideshows
  • A teacher that is always available to help! Just send me a message!

If you're ready to improve your videos, enroll now! You will be editing After Effects templates in under an hour!

Who this course is for:

  • Anyone wanting to use After Effects without having to learn the entire application
  • Video creators wanting to improve their videos with motion graphic templates

MORE ABOUT PHIL:

I've always tried to live life presently and to the fullest. Some of the things I love to do in my spare time include mountain biking, nerding out on personal finance, traveling to new places, watching sports (huge baseball fan here!), and sharing meals with friends and family. Most days you can find me spending quality time with my lovely wife, twin boys (and soon to be girl), and dog Ashby.

In 2011, I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Film and Television Production at Loyola Marymount University . While there, I was fortunate to make documentaries in Switzerland, Germany, Mexico, and India. After graduating, I worked at Participant Media shooting and editing short-form documentaries for their website TakePart. I followed that stint with a contract at Stanbridge College where I discovered online learning and helped pioneer their online school there. After that, I spent 2 years working at University of California Berkeley with the media team.

I continue to collaborate with friends on film and other creative projects, keeping my skillset fresh and ready to teach you.

I want to show you how to be a better creator, make money from your creations, and live the life you dreamed of.
