    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.

    Chad was a great professor and really dove in depth on the topics we covered. And the curriculum wasn’t super rigid either, we did lots of exploring and playing around which was helpful. It’s always great to see someone else’s process. It definitely helped that I was the only student too, got to pick his brain more than I might have in a larger class. I appreciate him still doing the class for one student!
