Are You Ready to Learn After Effects?

After Effects can be a challenging program, and these lessons are no different. We built this course to teach you the right way to manipulate this software and create gorgeous animation. If you like this orientation video, it’s time to put your skills to the test. Grab the project files and make your first animation project. Let’s see what you can do.

Complete the Form to Access the Project Files

Once you’ve submitted the form above, you’ll gain access to these free project files—the same files used in the course—so you can complete the first homework assignment. In each of our classes, you’ll gain hundreds of free assets to use in your work, both in and out of School of Motion. Now it’s time for a real test of your skill. Good luck.

Share & Tag Your Work for Professional Feedback

You did it! You created an original animation using only a few tips and your own personal skills. But work done in a void can’t move you that much further. It’s time to take the biggest leap of all: putting your work out into the world. Share that animation on social media and tag us @schoolofmotion and #SOMExtraCredit.
