About This Course

Published 6/2015 English

Course Description

You want to learn how to make fun, hip, and stylish motion graphics in After Effects, right?

This is the third part in my 3-part Dive Into After Effects series. Check out parts 1 & 2 if you haven't already done so. I created this series to make learning how to use After Effects as easy as possible.

You learn by doing.

In the Dive Into After Effects series, you'll follow along and work on your own project while learning. In this course, we'll create our own flat animation buildup - a popular style of animations you see in commercials, television shows, and movies today.

What makes me qualified to teach you?

My name is Phil. I am a professional motion graphics artist and video creator. Plus, I'm the creator of some of the world's most popular After Effects courses - with over 150,000 students and thousands of 5-star reviews like these ones from this course:

I really enjoyed this course! I'm fairly new to After Effects (minus some light video editing), but I felt like I learned a lot. - Katherine Vargas

Very easy to follow, at this time I did the course with the material given from author, and was simple and got a great animation with AE!  - Renato Nakazima

Phill made what is simple... look simple. Great course, great support, easy to follow, I'm really happy with it. - Bartolomeu Jacq

My Promise to You

I'll be here for you every step of the way. If you have any questions about the course content or anything related to this topic, you can always post a question in the course or send me a direct message.

I want to make this the best course on learning After Effects for beginners. So if there is any way I can improve this course, just tell me and I'll make it happen.

What's this course all about?

In this 45-minute course, you'll learn how to beautifully introduce objects in your After Effects projects. Knowing how to animate the small details of your objects will dramatically improve your After Effects skills. Follow me as I animate the build-up of a polaroid camera graphic.

This class is perfect for video creators, designers, and everyone who wants to learn After Effects in an non-intimidating way. If you're just starting out, we recommend taking the Dive into After Effects: Understanding the Basics & Working with Keyframes courses first. By the end of this class, you'll know how to seamlessly animate object buildups for your own video projects.

With our 30-day 100% money back guarantee, there is nothing holding you back from jumping in right now and trying the course out.

Cheers,

Phil

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 and our cat.

In 2011, I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Film and Television Production at Loyola Marymount University - one of the top 10 film schools in the country. 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. I helped pioneer their online school there. Most recently, I spent 2 years working at University of California Berkeley with the media team. Throughout this time I built my Video School Online brand to teach others the skills that I have. In May of 2015, I left the 9-5 world to make my own path. Since then, I've made more money, worked fewer hours, and only have done the things I love each day.

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