Ric, Producer
After Effects Essentials
I felt like it covered alot of stuff in the two days, I was really unsure if I should do the course or not or if I could I learn the program on my own, I am so glad that I did do it and have learnt way more in a short amount of time and I think it's a great idea that you can re-sit within six months just so you can make sure you really understand everything you have learnt.
