What level of training do I need to have before I start this course?
You need to have prior knowledge of Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop in order to take this course. Many students who want to learn Motion Graphics but have no experience with these programs take the Computer Graphics Fastrack course alongside this course.
(This works well as the knowledge of the core Adobe programs is only applied in the second half of the Motion Graphics course, by which time you will have learned the necessary programs in the Fastrack course.)
What will I learn in this course?
Starting with Adobe Premiere, you will master the art of creating feeling and mood, the techniques of editing, interface design and DVD authoring to produce professional videos.
Next up is Adobe After Effects for motion graphic manipulation, animation, and adding special cinematic effects to take your audio-visual to the next level. Regular assignments, quizzes, and projects with personalized feedback from the instructors help solidify your new skills.
The Ins and Outs of Video Editing
Fundamentals of After Effects
The Principles of Animation and character animation
How long should I expect to be working on the course each week?
Between the lessons and homework assignments, expect to spend about 5-10 hours a week, plus more before project deadlines.
How is this course different in a self-paced format?
The self-paced option is almost the same as the live course. Click here to see a side-by-side comparison.
What will I walk away with?

A great course! Loads packed into a small amount of time! The course covered a wide range of techniques and styles in animation, including both theory and practical. Rivky and Adina were excellent teachers – really knowledgeable. I loved how Adina also guided us on how we could further our skills so that I can really go anywhere and build on the foundations I was given by Design Alive!! Keep up your great work providing quality kosher courses that suit our lifetsyles and calendar
I loved the course! I found the course was extremely enjoyable and taught with such clarity. We covered so many areas in the course and learned so much. The teachers are absolutely fabulous, always available to answer your questions and give you the time you need! I did the course a couple years ago and recently I had a question, I emailed Rivky and she responded to my question. I currently run my own private business and enjoy working in this field immensely! Thank You Design Alive!
