After Effects Training: Essential Skills 1

"Great experience. This is the 3rd class I have taken through Lumenbrite. Each course has gotten better and better. Wonderful facility. My instructor Jon was perfect. He took the work I do at my job into consideration and was able to show me things that would help me directly day one after I am back at me office. Before this class I was only able to do a very limited amount in Ae. After this class with Jon, I can't wait to get started on some new projects. He has opened up a new world of Ae. Great job to Jon. I look forward to taking more class with him in the future. " - James
