After Effects Testimonials

Ben was very thorough in making sure everyone in the class understood each of the steps. He has a wealth of information that he is willing to share, and I found the course very productive in learning a new software program.
Narelle Browne, RMIT University
Excellent course for beginners to mid range expertise. Looking forward to other courses.
Patrick Dowling, Graphic Artist
This was a great introduction to Adobe After Effects - thanks! The two day course was great for someone like me who is time-poor but keen to build skills in a new program.
Amy Maynard
The course provides a very good overview of the software and is an excellent introduction for people wanting to move on to the advanced course.
Travis, Video Editor
As always, the perfect combination of fun and education, a great way to unlock the mysteries of After Effects. Keep up the good work!!
Luke, Digital Strategist
Great course - great teacher. Would highly recommend.
Ric, Producer
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.
Shaun Day
Really happy with the way the course was conducted. Ben's presentation and delivery was excellent.
Ratheesh, Multimedia Designer
Very thorough - thanks! The book will be a handy resource, too.
Sam, Photographer
Thoroughly enjoyed the course, learnt a lot, trainer was great.
