Meet Your Instructor

Cameron Pierron | Founder of Motion Science

Hi, I’m Cameron Pierron (AKA Mr. Black), an award-winning motion designer and founder of Motion Science. I have nearly two decades of experience under my belt, creating motion design for some of the biggest brand names in the world including American Express, Sony, Xbox, Heineken, and many more.

As a self-taught designer and animator, I’ve learned the ins and outs of the After Effects program over the past 20+ years. So I created After Effects Academy to make the learning process less frustrating and more rewarding for aspiring motion designers.

My goal is to lay out concepts and techniques in terms you can understand, so you can build strong After Effects expertise to power your career in motion design.
