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 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.
4.8 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.
4.4 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.
4.9 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!
4.9 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 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 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.
5.0 stars I want to be Mckinley's intern!!!! She is awesome!
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.
5.0 stars Best course I've ever taken!
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 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 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.
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 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.
4.9 stars Rob was awesome. Great Job Rob! I lam hoping to attending future trainings ith TC.
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
4.7 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 AMAZEBALLS!!!! My style of learning! Throw me in the water and tech me how to back stroke! GREAT BOOCAMP!!!
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 The instructor was an industry pro who shared their real world experience as well as made the students fully understand the concepts.
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 Kristin was very patient and a pleasure! He was very knowledgeable and great at troubleshooting! I enjoyed him very much and wish we could take more classes with him!!!
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!
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 an amazing teacher and was incredibly thorough, patient, and knowledgeable. Great guy and great class! Will recommend for sure.
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.
