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 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 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 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 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.
4.9 stars Rob was awesome. Great Job Rob! I lam hoping to attending future trainings ith TC.
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.
4.7 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.
4.9 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 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 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!
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 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 recommended this class enough.
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.
4.9 stars The class was wonderful. Many questions I had when I walked in ended up being answered. Rob is an excellent instructor, and the classroom training is worth every penny. Also, making the training lessons available for home use is handy.
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!
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 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.
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 Love this course. Kristian Gabriel is the best. Friendly, patient and great teaching techniques. Very creative. This is my second time here. 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!
5.0 stars Excellent. Best Adobe training that we have received. Kristian is extremely adept at tailoring the coursework to align with career goals.
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!
4.4 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 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!
4.7 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.
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
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 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 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!
