Learning and Teaching After Effects - 2 Day Intensive Workshop

After Effects is the giant in the corner of Adobe’s Creative Cloud family of applications. After Effects has become the industry standard for visual effects, compositing, animation and motion graphics. It is so vast that many people are afraid to even open it. Once you have a grasp of the fundamental principles that form the logic of the application an entire new world of professional level tools opens up to you and your students. This two-day intensive gives teachers the necessary experience and understanding to open up After Effects, and the confidence to consider ' how can this work in my classroom?'

​Teachers will be given an introduction to the basics of compositions, layers and the specific way that After Effects uses layers and the timeline. They will gain an in-depth understanding of key-framing, masks, alpha channels, parenting and much more.

The principles will be explained, and teachers will gain hands-on experience as they move through a multilayered project of their own.

Teachers will be provided with sample programs and activities that they can apply in their own schools.
