About This Class

In this class, we're covering a little more advanced animations with text.

The first animation is using a handwritten font and animating it with a stroke effect. An easy way to animate not just text, but also images or logos.

For the second animation, we're going over how to add a path and make a layer of text follow it. We use a roller coaster background and make the text follow the roller coaster track.

A Little About Me

My name's Nick and I'm just an average guy from Indiana trying to make a difference. I'm an entrepreneur that uses my family as fuel for creating media. Being creative helps me have less stress and a more fulfilling lifestyle.

I'm passionate about filming video, using awesomeness like motion graphics, and using software to take ideas from my head into reality. It's one of coolest things to do -- especially when you love what you do.

Professional Experience (and education)
For some of my expertise, I'm simply self-taught, but I've learned the correct way to do things once I found out that DIY is not always the best so to speak.

I work with clients to help their business grow using my design skills and creative knowledge. This has been a venture in itself.

From an educational standpoint, I have a degree in Computer Information Systems, but have used limited skills from what I learned attending college. Most of what I teach/use today is from my pursuit of purpose in life.

My Technical Knowledge

I'm a quick learner for just about any subject, but I've focused the most in technical areas including HTML, CSS, Adobe Creative Cloud, and Wordpress.

If you want to learn efficiency, that's what I teach! This is coming from someone who watches tutorials and listens to podcasts at twice the speed.

Don't stop being awesome,
