Motion Graphics is a complex field, encompassing the worlds of Conceptual Thinking, Graphic Design,
Animation, Cinematography, Editing, and Sound. And let’s not forget the business aspects such as Producing,
Marketing, Sales, and Client Service. It’s a lot to learn.
Our training has been designed around the belief that you don’t need a degree and a decade of experience to
become an effective MoGraph artist. You just have to know what’s important to
focus on, and you need to understand the fundamentals involved.
We focus on WHY you should do certain things, not just HOW. If you want in-depth explanations and examples of the principles and building-blocks involved in a successful Motion graphics piece, you will really like it here. If you want to learn a neat trick in 15 minutes, this is not the site for you.
If this is your first time here, you might start by checking out a few of the 30 Days of After Effects videos to get a free taste of our content and style of teaching. If you want to go really deep, check out our Training Programs which can improve your work massively in a matter of weeks.
School of Motion started in March of 2013. Since then, our tutorials have been watched over
500,000 times by working artists and students all over the world. We're a small, but dedicated
team that hopes to keep growing in the years to come
Howdy! I'm the founder / head-burrito-eater at School of Motion. I have been MoGraphing since 2002, and previously served as Creative Director at Toil in Boston, MA. After that I found my calling as a teacher, doing a stint at the Ringling College of Art & Design in their magnificent Motion Design department. I have a gorgeous wife who knew me before I had this amazingly bald head, 3 amazing kids, and live in sunny Florida where I sometimes run long distances even though I'm not being chased. School of Motion is my 4th baby, and I hope that it serves and an awesome resource for years to come.
Hey there! I'm Amy; instructor, freelance layer of keyframes, Designer of Motion, and chronic doodler. I currently reside in the snowy white North that is Detroit, Michigan. I am an Alumni of the lesser known Macomb Community College, with a degree in 3D Animation. After shaving off a couple years of my life learning Maya, things took an unexpected turn and I ended up going down a more 2D oriented path. Don't get me wrong, I still love working in 3D. Pretty much any program I can animate in is pure gold in my book. When I'm not animating I spend my time growing veggies, cooking delicious food, playing board games, having bonfires, and spoiling my cat.
Hello, my name is Greg and I am a MoGraph and 3D artist living and working in Chicago. I have spent a majority of my 8 years in the field working in video production, but have spent the past few rocking out graphics at a marketing firm specializing in B2B clients. I also do VFX for films from time to time. I have two BFA’s, one from Michigan State University, and the other from The Illinois Institute of Art Chicago. When not working I like to spend time with my family, watch Netflix, and when its not 0˚ out I like to be on a bike.
My name is Ryan Woolfolk. I am the senior motion designer at LEAPframe, a small digital film & motion design boutique located in the historic Over-the-Rhine district of Cincinnati, OH. I graduated from Full Sail in 2004 with a degree in Film and high hopes of becoming an editor. Those hopes were derailed when my first job as an in-house editor required me to learn a little After Effects. I got hooked on motion and have been an addict ever since. When I’m not animating you can usually find me hanging out with my lovely wife, wrestling with my two rowdy little boys, searching for the best burrito, daydreaming, or exploring the great outdoors.
