  1. Ben, the trainer is very good. very articulate, approachable and breaks down complex information into manageable chunks. really excellent teacher.

  2. Nick definitely knew After Effects well and gave a good insight into how to organise what things need to go where and how to view just the bits you’re working on, which didn’t seem very exciting (and I think most trainers wouldn’t dwell on this aspect) but it was invaluable if I was doing a project of my own, as the screen can quickly look overwhelming unless the assets are organised well.

  3. Excellent! Knowledgeable and very helpful. A lot of thought has been put into the course and I an has been great! I look forward to taking part in many more courses in the future.

  4. Ian was an excellent teacher who took the time to talk to individual pupils and was easy to approach if we needed to ask any questions.

  5. Ian was a great tutor, patient, interesting & very helpful

  6. I felt I had to ask several times for Kelman to explain some of the exercises, to a point were sometimes some explanations weren’t very clear and I would need to ask him to repeat himself. I found it very hard to be able to participate in the exercises and also take notes. On a few occasions I would ask how to do something in particular and I would be told we were coming to that later on in the course, it felt very much that he was working to a schedule/script and wasn’t willing to move or adjust anything, even though we were there the whole week, also when asking how to do some things we were told it wasn’t part of the course.

  7. Excellent course, was able to tailor learning to meet my requirements

  13. Amazing mastery and very helpful with any question we asked. Easygoing personality and easy to follow. I really appreciate also the reference websites,resources and plug ins advices as well.

  14. Did the After Effects basic course, well worth while. Very good and patient teacher, classes structured to cover a lot of ground without being either bored or confused. Recommended.

  15. Being a relative amateur I did both a Premier Pro and After Effects course in Manchester and found both to be very good. Learnt so much from good teachers who had a lot of patience with us students with some who were already accomplished but needed certification and like myself, novices. Would definitely recommend to others.

  16. I have completed a course in After Effects at Academy Class. The course was really well structured. Everything was set up and ready to go the moment you entered the classroom. It was well laid out with a screen between two to follow the instructor and a computer each to have a go at each section. (I was even emailed prior to the course asking which computer platform I preferred.) The instructor was keen and had excellent knowledge. He was always willing to answer any questions and to get hands on if any of the group started having problems or losing there way. The only downside was that the computers weren’t the most powerful so rendering and viewing your work could be a bit tedious. All in all an excellent course, it was easy to follow and you came away believing you were able to produce decent quality work in After Effects.

  17. It was a very good course.

  24. Jason was friendly and extremely knowledgeable about AE. He was also able to adapt his teachings to effectively incorporate answers to all questions asked.
