Learn Motion Graphics & Create a Demo Reel

Motion graphics is the art of animating graphic design. Video editing is cutting together video clips and sound, to enhance the meaning of existing video, or to create new meaning. Together, they make a powerful skill-set that can take still images and illustrations to new levels of engagement for your audience. 

Learn video editing with Adobe Premiere Pro and motion graphics and visual effects with Adobe After Effects. You'll gain a deep understanding of how these programs work together and alongside Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, and workflow strategies for going from concept, to design, to completely animated motion graphics. Along the way, you'll create projects that teach you After Effects and Premiere Pro, while mastering creative techniques in both motion graphics and special effects. Then you'll work with your instructor on independent projects to showcase these newly developed skills, in the Portfolio Development course.
