    Amazing class taught by Mr.Mark Chandler. The 3 jam-packed days were just a steller foundation on what's possible with creating in After Effects and Premiere. The class was a mixture of informational lessons and real-world perspectives. I feel more confident tackling more AE projects now.

    Anonymous review on 8/3/2019
    Very good for learning with no experience or for filling in the gaps from self teaching AfterEffects. Wish there were a little more complex concepts taught other than just moving shapes around on 2D space but you can only teach so much in a day. Got a little too quick towards the end when exporting projects and learning different compressions so it felt arbitrary to even explain. But overall good class and great teacher, perfect pace for learning from scratch and if you need to learn specifically how to make gifs and logos

    Kalika was a fantastic instructor bringing patience and humor to every lesson. Thanks to her, I have a strong grasp on the topics covered, am confident in my skills and capability to delve further into the app. Kalika is the rare teacher who goes the extra mile for her students because she's happy to. One suggestion note is that there are a few lessons that start off with importing or setting up in more than one way for the sake of learning how different modes function. I think the class would benefit from taking time in between the demonstrations to practice that part before continuing into the bulk of the lesson - I found that I forgot what the take-away was from that initial portion of the lesson by the time the demonstration was over, and conducting that portion on my own created an interruption between the demonstration and going through the section on my own.

    I had been trying to learn After Effects on my own for a while, but it wasn't until I decided to take the course through Noble Desktop that things really started to make sense for me. Now I feel that I have a solid foundation and am more excited than before about learning After Effects. As much as I enjoyed this class, I only wish that there was a second part to this course or something that would take you into some of the more intermediate/advanced techniques with track mattes, rotoscoping, null objects etc.

Discover the Best Animation Classes in Atlanta

Jobs for creatives that offer a 401k while allowing them to practice their art daily are few and far between. Luckily, a career in animation checks both boxes and provides many other perks, as well. One benefit to working in animation is excellent job security, thanks to animation’s projected global market size of $531.237 billion by 2028. It’s also an ideal field for those excited by variety, as opportunities in animation range from creating special effects for major motion pictures and art for major anime series to website design and game development. And those who desire to work in a field full of cutting-edge innovation will find they are never bored in the animation industry thanks to changing audience tastes and rapidly advancing technology.

While those who create moving images primarily for branding, web design, marketing, or advertising are typically titled Motion Graphics Artists, they utilize many of the same skills and softwares as true Animators who work in the art of storytelling with motion graphics in film and television. Commonly used softwares include Autodesk Maya, Adobe After Effects, and Adobe Animate (formerly known as Flash Pro). Learning these softwares will allow you to create your own YouTube or short-form videos, freelance through platforms like Upwork, or provide a solid foundation for beginning your career in a major animation studio, creative agency, or gaming development company.

Atlanta Industries That Use Animation

Often called “the Hollywood of the South,” Atlanta’s thriving film and television industry includes a healthy animation sector that employs many 2D and 3D Animators in the region. Atlanta’s surprisingly vibrant animation history dates back to 1986 when Atlanta-based Turner Broadcasting acquired MGM and its library of classic cartoons

This purchase was followed by Hanna Barbera’s iconic collection of animation in 1991, setting up Atlanta’s Cartoon Network as the king of television animation. Adult Swim’s 2001 debut on the Cartoon Network was a significant event in the history of animation, shaping the future of adult cartoons by pushing boundaries and providing a platform to connect mainstream audiences to unique art styles and voices. Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, and other Turner subsidiaries are major employers of Animators in Atlanta, though they are also joined by many other studios and production companies today.

Like other cities with large tech sectors, Atlanta boasts a number of motion graphics opportunities in branding, advertising, marketing, and game design. And its frequent large-scale concerts and other events create opportunities for Animators specializing in creating interactive experiences for audiences.

Animation Jobs & Salaries in Atlanta

Atlanta provides employment for the fifth-highest number of Special Effects Artists and Animators in the U.S., which is not too shabby a ranking considering the city is the 37th largest in the country. As of 2022, Atlanta’s 910 Animators and Special Effects Artists made an average mean wage of $77,000. While this is nowhere near the highest salary for Animators in the country, the lower cost of living in the city promises a comfortable quality of life for creatives who prefer to live in the South. Home to adult animation giants like Cartoon Network and a surprising number of tech giants and startups, Atlanta’s job market for Motion Graphics Artists is rich and varied enough to promise a rewarding career to those interested in working in animation in the region.
