About This Class

You don't have to be an After Effects genius to be able to make amazing motion graphics. These video tutorials are at the perfect pace for even beginners.

The course starts with video tutorials on shape theory and techniques. We go over the basic process of creating shape motion graphics. Then we go dive deeper by using these shape layer animations to create professional motion graphic projects. I'm with you every step of the way, and am always available for questions.

The course project is to create your own hip title sequence using the shape layer techniques we learned in the class.

Go ahead and enroll!

learned a lot :)
A great class for AE intermediates. Really great instruction. As someone who produces educational videos for a living, I really appreciate how well it is structured. Each video is about 10 minutes long and contains a new project that introduces new material while pulling in previously learned material to solidify it in the students brain. I feel like I learned a lot. Thanks!
Phil has some nice little animation tricks up his sleeve and does a good job of walking you through the process (both technical and creative) of building and applying them to projects. Well worth the time.

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.
