Recent student feedback

5.0 stars Kristian was one of the best yet software trainers that we have had. He engaged all in the class, did not hesitate to bring be along when I lost the training thread. He went outside the core software training to provide better understanding of what Ai was actually doing and why certain choices were more desirable than other. Can't say enough good about his knowledge/style.
4.4 stars I really enjoyed this course. Even though I have been using Adobe After Effects for about 6 years, I feel like learning the fundamentals along with other beginners from scratch was very useful for filling in some of the gaps of my understanding of the software. Looking forward to taking the Advanced Class and really sharpening my skills!Samantha Bode

4.8 stars I can't say enough how fantastic McKinley is as an instructor. Her real world experience coupled with examples that are extremely useful, make this seem more like personal one-on-one training rather than a class. I am definitely going to look into the other classes she teaches and see about signing up for them. She is very professional and extremely pleasant and I will recommend to colleagues that they take any class she teaches.Sean Tom

5.0 stars McKinley is a very talented instructor. She was patient and took the time to explain the tools and concepts that I needed clarification on. Beyond that, she made the class lively, fun and interesting. My interactions with other staff and instructors were very positive too.Edward Cook
