5.0 stars 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.
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.
4.9 stars One of the best instructors I have ever had for learning a new software. Explained everything thoroughly and paused at anytime to help a student if they had a problem. Will try and take another course with this instructor.
4.9 stars This is my second class here. I took Premiere Pro with McKinely, which was really helpful in learning After Effects. Both of those worked together so that each one reinforced the concepts of the other and I feel more confident in my editing skills. I am extremely excited to take what I learned here and apply those skills in my work place.
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 McKinley Marshall 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.
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 want to be Mckinley's intern!!!! She is awesome!
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!
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 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.
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.
4.9 stars My mind was blown. I cant stop thinking about what i'm going to do with the knowledge that Rob has taught me. Thanks -Adam
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.
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.
4.4 stars 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 alot more by taking the Boot Camp Training. Thank You Rob.
4.9 stars 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.
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 Kristian was an amazing teacher and was incredibly thorough, patient, and knowledgeable. Great guy and great class! Will recommend for sure.
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 Mckinley was an amazing instructor and I would definitely love to take another class with her. She was very informative and also entertaining throughout the course. She explained each step clearly and also assisted us when we needed her help. She was great. I would recommend her to anyone. Triple thumbs up as an instructor.
5.0 stars AMAZEBALLS!!!! My style of learning! Throw me in the water and tech me how to back stroke! GREAT BOOCAMP!!!
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 An absolutely amazing class! I came thinking I knew a lot, and quickly found out - not so much! McKinley, thank you!
4.7 stars McKinley was an excellent instructor and had a vast amount of knowledge to answer all of my questions. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for real world education. Not a simple follow the book and do your home work.
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 The instructor was an industry pro who shared their real world experience as well as made the students fully understand the concepts.
4.9 stars Rob was awesome. Great Job Rob! I lam hoping to attending future trainings ith TC.
5.0 stars Rob did a wonderful job, he keep me interested, I learned a lot because I came here knowing nothing at all.
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!
