Love this course. Kristian is the best. Friendly, patient and great teaching techniques. Very creative. This is my second time here. I had so much fun the first time I had to come back. This training has really changed my career as an editor. Looking forward to taking more Adobe courses here in the future. Thanks!

This class was awesome. The only regret that I have was that I didn't do it sooner! Kristian was awesome! He far surpassed any expectations I had. His skills and teaching methods were top notch. His patience and concern for the students to learn was great. I would highly recommend this class to anyone. So glad I got to do this. Thanks Kristian!

The level of detail offered was beyond what I expected; I greatly appreciated that. The instructor's knowledge of the software and all its applications, including how it interacts with other programs is astounding. Her knowledge of video and audio technology, industry standards, and etc. is impressive. In addition, McKinley is a comprehensive instructor; she provides real world examples and uses humor as well. Terrific class

Rob is an absolutely outstanding instructor, extremely knowledgeable, very patient, and highly skilled. I can't believe how much I've learned about After Effects in just a few days. This course will pay for itself many times over in terms of increased productivity and much higher production levels. Now I really want to take the Premiere Pro course!

I wasn't sure if this boot camp class was going to be too much for me but I was determined. McKinley made all these hard to learn concepts fun and exciting to learn. I would highly recommend her class to my friends and colleagues.

I knew very little about After Effects before starting this course other than I really needed to learn it. This course exceeded my expectations greatly, as I found the hands-on, in-class learning environment to be a great way to learn sophisticated software. I now feel confident to take my own self-teaching to another level now that the intimidation I previously had is gone. The Training Connection company was very welcoming and the computer systems were great! It would be better if the footage files we had were of better HD or even 4K quality. Thanks!

My favorite instructor, ever. This was a fun, informational class that I really enjoyed and learned a lot from. It wasn't too advanced, and it wasn't too simple. The instructor paid attention to our level of comfort. Thanks.

I wasn't sure what to expect of the classes. The class set up was top notch. The computers provided were of high quality and set up properly. Our instructor, Kristian was genuinely excited to teach us the concepts and application of After Effects. That helped me to be engaged in the class. The course was very deep and intense at times with a ton of good, usable information. I would definitely recommend and take another class.

McKinley is now the best teacher I have ever had going back to elementary. She did a wonderful job in everything this course had to offer. She kept everyone engaged and worked at a pace that was perfect for beginners to advanced AE editors. The course was everything I needed to execute my ideas in my profession. Thank you to McKinley for doing such a great job with everything and I look forward to taking more classes here at Training Connection.

McKinley was so helpful and knowledgeable. I come from a print background and a lot of the After Effects concepts were new and challenging but she made it fun and accessible. I'm excited to use can't recommend this class enough.

Rob was very patient and made it easy to ask questions... I had a lot of them, and he never made me feel like I was disrupting his teaching. He spoke slowly and re-explained directions enough for the material to sink in. I will definitely recommend it to my team!

Rob was great. We went at a good pace, and he asked me if I was happy with the course several times, giving me an opportunity for immediate feedback. I'm very likely to attend another course with Training Connection and was impressed with the professional environment and staff.

I've taken this course before and decided to take the refresher course before my 6 month period was over and am very glad I did. It allowed me to revisit concepts that I hadn't thought about since first learning them some months ago and think progressively as of how to apply them for future projects versus the regular tools/techniques I found myself falling into. McKinley is an incredible instructor and very thorough in going through the material that the book leaves out.

This was an excellent experience, I feel that I can go home with the confidence to expand on the knowledge and skills provided. Additional materials and references are an added bonus. All projects were based on real-world applications that one would expect to encounter in the professional workplace. I would highly recommend Rob and Training Connection to my peers.

I loooooved this course and everything McKinley taught us. I didn't know what to expect, but I'm so impressed by the ground we were able to cover in such a short amount of time. I would highly recommend this course and would be super interested in taking any other class she teaches that might match my interest.

This course was spectacular. I feel like I've learned more than I could anticipate and look forward to applying my new skills to both work and personal video production. There was a lot of information, some of which I think I will forget, so having the supplemental material is definitely helpful. After Effects is a comprehensive tool and there is much I still need to learn. I will try to get my employer to let me sign up for the advanced course next.

I really enjoyed this course. I enjoyed the wide range of examples and Rob had a great balance of scaffolding each lesson so that I felt more confident with each exercise. I also appreciated the small class size. Thank you, Rob!

McKinley was absolutely the best. She explained everything so well and was patient and spent time answering any and all questions we had. I absolutely loved taking her class and felt like I benefitted a lot from her experience and teaching style. I feel super strong with After Effects now and it's because she laid such a solid foundation.

Once again, McKinley Marshall was an excellent teacher for the AE Boot Camp class. I had the privilege of taking her Premiere Pro Boot Camp class as well. McKinley is very informative, friendly, and funny. I would take another class with her in heartbeat. She takes time out to make each student feel confident when taking her class. The staff is very friendly and the facility is top-notch. I would highly recommend Training Connection to anyone.

I can't say enough how fantastic McKinley is as an instructor. Her real-world experience coupled with examples that are extremely useful, makes 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.

This After Effects Fundamentals class is an absolutely fantastic class. I feel confident that I know have the basic skill-set and hands-on experience to be able to navigate the program with confidence. I am also aware that the key to success for a lot of these programs is practice and patience. McKinley was a patient kind and fun teacher. She maintained a great level of enthusiasm and instruction; she is extremely knowledgeable and shared a high level of confidence in her skill-set and professionalism. Overall, this was an awesome way to learn and to spend a day! Thank you.

I enjoyed this class very much. I have never used After Effects before, but after the first day of this class, I felt like I could make really good basic effects. I will be able to use everything that I learned this week.

Mckinley was fantastic. She kept us engaged and was very knowledgable in the subjects she taught as well as other related subjects. Her enthusiasm for After Effects was contagious. I can't wait to get home and apply some of the knowledge I've learned the past week on my own projects.

Rob Rocks! He is an Adobe PR and AE guru :) Rob's approach to teaching is effective and holistic. I've edited with Premiere for 6 years and wanted to add After Effects to my tool belt. In one week I have learned advance techniques to help polish my PR skills and now I know how to begin using AE. I can't tell you how many OMG moments I had, now my level of editing will go from amateur hour to animation power. LOL :) I'm really excited to see what I can do, Thank you, Rob!

Rob was patient with all students and would go back to review with each student if the student did not understand the first time of instruction. Even though I had some experience I learned a lot more by taking the Boot Camp Training. Thank You, Rob.

Rob was an absolutely wonderful teacher and I walked away with more knowledge in 5 days than I could've ever figured out from any book or googling. He had helpful hints and in-depth knowledge of almost all questions and subjects After Effects related and was able to cater the experience to each student's specific needs.

I was very impressed by Rob's knowledge and instructional abilities. The pacing of this class was fast enough to keep things interesting but Rob allowed plenty of time to review information if needed. This course has exceeded my expectations and I would love to take the Premier course with Rob if I had the opportunity to do so!

One of the best instructors I have ever had for learning a new software. He explained everything thoroughly and paused at any time to help a student if they had a problem. Will try and take another course with this instructor.

McKinley was fantastic! I felt like it was a perfect course for someone who understands Adobe software, especially Premiere, but wants to take on AE & fine-tune their skills. Didn't move too fast, nor felt too easy. Lots of great information. And the instructor did a great job of assimilating to all the skill levels but keeping the class moving. Totally recommend!
