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.
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 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 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.
5.0 stars 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!
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.
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.
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 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!
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.
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.
4.9 stars My fave 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!
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.
5.0 stars 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.
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
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!
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!
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 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 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.
4.9 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 AMAZEBALLS!!!! My style of learning! Throw me in the water and tech me how to back stroke! GREAT BOOCAMP!!!
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 I want to be Mckinley's intern!!!! She is awesome!
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 Kristian was a great instructor, very knowledgeable, entertaining and extremely well organized. He was able to keep the class moving while adding interesting sidebars that made it enjoyable to attend.
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.
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.
4.4 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.
