    Really nice experience. Highly recommend!

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    I attended After Effect black belt at Academy Class course and it was awesome. Our tutor – John was great. He knew AE inside out! Learned lots! Thank you.

  3. Rated 5 out of 5

    I recently attended a Bespoke After Effects Training class in Glasgow. Those attending the course were at various ability levels in AE, but the course tutor structured the class in a way that everyone was able to improve their skills and learn new techniques at the right level and speed for them. The tutor was extremely knowledgeable in AE and created a fun and friendly, professional environment in which to learn. You acquire useful and impressive skills & techniques that can be applied to any project. I would not hesitate to go on another Academy Class course and would highly recommend them to anyone interested in improving their skill set in post production.
