About This Class
Watch any professional commercial, YouTube channel, or television series, and one thing they all have in common is that they have a video intro! You know? That 5-10 second animation with their logo?
These video intros (or video bumpers as many people call them in the video industry) are eye-catching, brand-strengthening, and audience-growing. Anybody that ever watched television can remember McDonald's ba da ba ba ba jingle and logo fading onto the screen. Most great YouTube channels have a short intro bumper, and these creators are sometimes making a living off of the videos they post online.
I believe everyone with a brand, a YouTube channel, or any other sort of video production NEEDS to have a video into. And I believe anyone is capable of creating their own! You don't have to pay someone else to do it for you. This course will teach you everything you need to know to create an elegant and professional video intro for your brand.
The course is taught in Adobe After Effects CC. If you have another version of After Effects, that is totally fine. If you don't, you can get a free 30-day trial of After Effects from Adobe.

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.
