The Most Comprehensive After Effects Training Course on the Internet

If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to create motion graphics with After Effects but didn’t know where to start, then this course is for you.
If you’ve tried developing your After Effects skills on your own, you’ve probably spent countless hours learning by trial-and-error or piecing together your own curriculum from online videos. It’s a frustrating and time-consuming process.
The good news is that you don’t have to do it the hard way anymore. After Effects is a seriously deep program, and best learned with structured, expert guidance. So in these courses, I bring you what I myself learned the hard way over more than 20 years of experience working with After Effects.

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.
