School of Motion courses provided me with the skills and feedback that my school couldn't provide. I wouldn't have gone viral or landed my internship without their in-depth courses.
When I hit a plateau in my career, I felt lost, and it was difficult to find motivation to learn new skills. School of Motion courses quickly reignited my passion for animation and helped me launch my career in an exciting new direction.
The decision to take Animation Bootcamp from School of Motion was a life changer. I have turned my passion of motion graphics into my career.
Anyone can participate in a School of Motion course! All our courses are offered online, so you can take them from anywhere in the world. All you need is a high-speed internet connection and the applicable software for your course.
School of Motion courses range from 4 - 12 weeks long. Lessons become available at a specific time each week but you can watch them and do your work whenever it is convenient for you. The lessons include pre-recorded videos, podcasts, PDFs and assignments with working files.
All student work is critiqued by our highly trained Teaching Assistants. School of Motion TA's are professional Designers, Animators and 3D Artists with real life experience in the industry.
During the course you will be invited to a private classroom that contains all of the students and Teaching Assistants in your session. This is a great tool for connecting, asking or answering questions, sharing thoughts or insights, and winning cool contests!
You'll get as much out of the course as you put into it. We encourage you to consume all lessons, complete each assignment and engage with your cohort in the classroom. However, we understand life happens so we've built in catch up weeks and flexible deadline policies. At the end of each course you'll also have the opportunity to add on extended critiques which gives you more time with a Teaching Assistant to complete the course and get your credential.
