About This Class

sMwrPDE.gif

Do you love hand lettering? Have you ever wanted to add some motion to your designs? This class is for anyone who wants to learn the basics of animation, but never had the opportunity! I'll show you step by step my process of how to break down hand lettering for animating in After Effects, and learn the fundamentals of motion design. You'll be able to follow along even if you've never opened the program before.

By the end of the course, you'll have a completely original animation that you can share with the world. I'll see you in class!

Very easy to follow and very helpful!
Very thorough. I was able to go from not knowing anything in after effects to having an animated text by the end of the day.
Good info for those looking to start learning the basics of animation in After Effects.

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.
