In 2019-2020 I was teaching a short course all about Motion Graphics in After Effects. The whole department I was teaching into took a huge blow with COVID and shut down, never to return. Now I have all these classes that I created, just sitting on a google drive with no where to go.
I have continued to teach into VE and Higher Ed into similar but not totally the same areas. So I thought, let's bring the classes to Skillshare. At least then they're out int the world and not just gathering metaphorical dust on a hard drive.
My mentality to teaching is how I got into this field in the first place - I was doing it because it was fun, I enjoyed the puzzles the projects created, at it wasn't until I got a job that I realised this was a career. So none of my teaching is (hopefully) going to be scary, daunting or overwhelming. The goal is to maintain that connection to the fun craft of animation.

Check out some of my quick tutes on TikTok, I'm continuing to add more.
Once upon a time I developed a series of classes as an introduction to After Effects and Motion Graphics. I ran it at RMIT for a few years until COVID came up and snuffed it all. So now I'm finally getting around to putting these classes together again as online offerings via Skillshare and Gumroad.
These little gifs represent some of the class outcomes from the sessions.

Pins and Bones
My first ever online tute which, while it's not a mastery of editing by any means, it stills seems to be helping people so I thought I'd pop it up here too.
