About This Class

You've learned the basics. Keyframes are in your toolbox. Now it's time to take the next step as an animator and unleash the power of After Effects' graph editor!


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.

Jake's classes is one of the reasons I keep coming back to Skillshare and I am once choosy student :). I like how informative the class is. Aside from the graph editor, Jakes shares very useful tips and tricks from working in Ae and always makes sure to mention different ways of achieving the same effect. At the same time the class is well-paced and structured.
Create really cool animations for your designs with After Affects

Motion Graphics Artist


Hey! My name is Jake Bartlett, and I’m a motion designer working and playing in sunny Los Angeles, California. 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.
