About This Class

In this class we will dive into After Effects and create a countdown. This lesson requires no plug-ins, everything you need will be built right into the bones of After Effects.

My name is Adam Jones. I have been editing and shooting since I was a kid in grade school. Editing in an old dusty room with my librarian doing reel-to-reel editing on VHS. This continued through my life and now 30 years old I have 10 years of professional experience with motion graphics, editing and directing. Telling stories is the passion of my life. However I can participate in that process I want to do it.
