This class is for anyone looking to take control of the look and feel of their motion design. Whether you've been using After Effects for years, or you've only just started learning the program, this class will be easy to follow along. I'll teach you everything you need to know about easing in and out of of every bit of motion you create, and help you develop an aesthetic that will make your work stand apart from others'.

If you've never used After Effects before, I recommend that you take my other quick class, The Beginner's Guide to Animating Custom GIFs, first. Then you'll be prepared for the content of this class.

Great beginner class, good to watch couple of time to nail the AE basics
It's such a good course for beginners and self-taught animators! I loved it! It's also pretty easy to follow and understand! Plus, I've seen some of the end results and they are amazing!

Hey! My name is Jake Bartlett, and I’m a motion designer from Denver, Colorado. I've been animating in Adobe After Effects for over ten years. After five years of working for an LA-based production company, I have gone freelance full-time and now work from home. Animating as a motion designer professionally is a dream for me. I get to use After Effects every single day for my job.

Since starting my professional career I've animated over 800 episodes of 8 different motion graphics shows for clients like Yahoo!, MSN, Twitter, YouTube, Pepsi, VH1, HGTV, NateGeo Wild, The History Channel, and Ulive to name a few. In my free time I love making animations for myself. I've found that constantly challenging myself on my own time has been the best way to increase the quality of my work. Being able to consistently use After Effects on a daily basis and always having a tight deadline has made me very fast and efficient with the program.
