To many filmmakers, graphics and animation are mysteriously dark arts. We will take the mystery out of it and give you the skills to source, create, adjust and implement graphics. You will learn the basics of Photoshop and Illustrator and their alternatives, how graphics work and what to do with them.
After creating your graphics you will bring your freshly prepared assets in to Adobe After Effects and learn how to put them into motion. By the end of this course you should have MORE than a beginners knowledge of creating motion graphics including moving logos, lower-thirds and titles.
With an understanding of motion graphics and how to create them, you will be armed with not only a deepening curiosity for the art, but also an attractive skill to the video industry.
