I'm a graphic designer and I've always been intimidated by After Effects. This class had clear explanation and was straight to the point. Megan definitely made After Effects seem way more fun, rather than intimidating!

Just brilliant. Megan Friesth is articulate, engaging and extremely knowledgable in her field of Motion Design. The structure of the class is clear, logical and well thought through. I’m a lecturer myself and I know how much work a class like this needs until it reaches the quality present here. Well done!
