After Effects Training: Essential Skills 3

"I felt like I was in a true training boot camp, except the instructor wasn't a marine sergeant. He was an entertaining extremely observant and skilled teacher. The emphasis on repetitions catching us up quickly when he noticed we were off, and choosing assignments that reinforced lessons was great...I'd do a better job of describing why this was so fantastic if I hadn't already joyfully used every available brain cell I had today." - Gwen
