After Effects is a vital program to know for any animator! It helps add those specific details and effects to your film that make it extra special.

This workshop is tailored to the animator and will teach basic interface and functionality, motion graphics basics, composition basics, and text use! Brian "Bunny" Batista is a long-time instructor at Quickdraw, and loves "Making art and Making Marks". He has extensive experience with After Effects professionally and educationally! You can check out his Youtube channel here

**It is very handy if you have your own After Effects/Adobe account, but please contact Erin at production@quickdrawanimation.ca if you need a license, since our numbers are heavily limited.
