4.6 stars We covered a lot of material in a few short days. McKinley really knows her stuff and it made all the difference. The class was both informative and fun. I would definitely take another course with the Training Connection and recommend to others.
4.4 stars Rob Shultz is a master. I am thankful to have this course with him. Even though I have 20 years of editing experience I had a hard time keeping up at times. I would have appreciated a little more set up on some of the exercises (context). Over all a a fantastic experience.
5.0 stars The instructor was an industry pro who shared their real world experience as well as made the students fully understand the concepts.
5.0 stars McKinley Marshall 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 Connections.
4.9 stars 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!
4.5 stars I gained extra value and context from McKinley's detailed introductions to each lesson, making it easier for me to understand and learn what we were doing. She gave great personal and professional examples of use of the skills and AE tools. I like the inclusion and reminders of good workflow practice. Super fun personality.
5.0 stars 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!
5.0 stars Kristian was an amazing teacher and was incredibly thorough, patient, and knowledgeable. Great guy and great class! Will recommend for sure.
5.0 stars Best course I've ever taken!
5.0 stars 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 Gabriel 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.
5.0 stars The After Effects class was great. I learned a ton in only three days and now feel equipped to take on my own projects.
4.9 stars Instructor has a very relatable and easy teaching style. He never talks over your head about topics and provides easy to understand explanations to questions. He's very passionate and enthusiastic about the material which makes the class more interesting.
5.0 stars The level of detail offered was beyond what I expected; I greatly appreciated that. The instructor's knowledge of the software and all it's applications, including how it interacts with other programs is astounding. Her knowledge of video and audio technology, industries standards, and etc. is impressive. In addition, McKinley Marshall is a comprehensive instructor; she provides real world examples and uses humor as well. Terrific class
5.0 stars 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.
4.6 stars McKinley was incredibly knowledgeable in the field of video graphics, as well as having expertise in complimentary areas to give a full understanding. She was very patient with questions and was able to find alternative ways of explaining concepts so everyone could understand.
4.9 stars The professor was very knowledgeable about the program and willing to go off topic to teach other aspects of the program when asked questions. I am very pleased with the overall experience of the class and the teacher.
4.7 stars Rob Shultz 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.
4.4 stars Great class with great information. Rob does not just 'follow the book' which is great. Learned a lot about After Effects and more. Excited to use After Effects when I get back home.
5.0 stars Rob did a wonderful job, he keep me interested, I learned a lot because I came here knowing nothing at all.
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!
4.9 stars 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. Thanks!
5.0 stars Rob Shultz Rocks! He is a 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!
5.0 stars Excellent. Best Adobe training that we have received. Kristian is extremely adept at tailoring the coursework to align with career goals.
4.7 stars 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 knowledge I've learned the past week on my own projects.
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.
5.0 stars 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!
5.0 stars 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.
5.0 stars Rob Schultz is an absolutely outstanding instructor -- extremely knowledgeable, very patient, 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!
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.
5.0 stars Excellent course that has opened up many new possibilities for us work wise. The instructor shared many real world concepts that will help us apply these new skills to what we do on a regular basis.
