Hi there, my name is  Dan. I’m a Adobe Certified Instructor and I LOVE animating infographics & bringing potentially boring data to life using After Effects through Data Visualization.

This course is for beginners. You don’t need any previous knowledge in VFX Compositing or any motion graphics experience. We’ll start with the super basics, taking simple icons breathing life into to them with After Effects.

We’ll work through a real life projects, connecting Excel into After Effects to transform your boring spreadsheet data into approachable visual information. We’ll experiment with lighting & cameras. We’ll do some fun things with masking, looking at how important sound is in your presentation, all the way through to exporting for Youtube, Powerpoint and all sorts of social media including animated GIFS.  

There are projects for you to complete, so you can practice your VFX visual effects skills and use these for your portfolio. There is a cheat sheet and I’ve got exercise files so you can play along. I will also save my files as I go through each video so that you can compare yours to mine - handy if something goes wrong.

Know that I will be around to help - if you get lost you can drop a post on the video 'Questions and Answers' below each video and I'll be sure to get back to you.

What are you waiting for? Lets get making!

If you want to learn how to use After Effects to create realistic visual effects (VFX) shots and not just motion graphics, then you're looking at the right course. This course will reveal the tips, tricks and applications of compositing in post-production visual effects - one of the final steps to finishing and executing any visual effects shot.

Learn How to do Compositing from an Industry-Trained Professional.

Using 3 real live-action films as test shots for this course, learn by actually working on shots while following the course as a step-by-step guide to proper and professional compositing.

Why This Course?

  • Taught by a real professional in the visual effects and film industry who worked on actual Hollywood blockbusters

  • Step-by-step guide with practical and hands-on live-action shots to work on

  • Insights and know-hows that would save you time and money when working on your own visual effects shot

  • Major part of a series of other more advanced visual effects tricks, tips and methods
