During the winter of 2020 I enrolled into a 3 month After Effects expression course by School of Motion called Expression Session.
I wanted to develop myself and expand my knowledge of After Effects by learning how to write code to drive my animations.
School of Motion provided beautiful designs for each exercise.
The exercises focused on a specific piece of code we learned about during a video lesson.
Every student had a personal teaching assistant that guided us through the course. They gave in depth feedback and suggestions on how to improve.
This really motivated me to get the most out of the exercises.
At the end of the course I had to use all my newly acquired knowlegde to animate a fake user interface (FUI) of a fishing boat on the ocean. I never thought I would be able to do this before starting the course.
Not only did the course teach me how to use code to my advantage for complex animation, but it also taught me how to work more efficient and I didn’t expect that when I signed up.
I feel I can take on a whole new level of animation projects.
