Students learning After Effects in NYC training class
  • “This is a great intensive course to get you started with After Effects. I highly recommend it to anyone who is serious about learning this. I would definitely take more classes at Noble Desktop.”

    Rose Mattrey

    Rose learned animation and video post-production in the After Effects Level 1 class.

  • “After Effects In a Day is a great beginner class to learn simple animation basics. Great variety of exercises in the training book. Kalika is a fun and entertaining instructor and she shared some of her own work which is amazing and inspiring!”

    Victoria Greiss

    Victoria learned After Effects essentials in our In a Day course

  • “After Effects in a Day was awesome. We started by watching, then doing. I like that the approach was exercise-based, as opposed to going through every single tool and interface (like some other trainings I've been to). It's my preferred way to learn, and I came away learning more than I anticipated!”

    Lisa Keller

    Enjoyed Noble's teaching method in the After Effects in a Day course

  • “After taking the After Effects class at Noble Desktop, I was able to create an animation immediately following completion of the course material - now I have the tools to continue using After Effects in my personal projects and beyond.”

    Blake Drummond

    Attended the comprehensive After Effects CC Level 1 course

  • “Kalika was an excellent instructor. Her enthusiasm and passion for After Effects was contagious. She was patient, smart, and funny. She brought a much needed lightness and humor to a difficult subject. At times I was overwhelmed. Kalika was hands-on with helping me. She was genuinely interested in teaching us what we wanted to know. We followed the instruction booklet but it was not forced upon us -- we went at our own pace and was able to spend the last class practicing our own project ideas. I left my three-day Noble Desk top experience feeling inspired and excited to continue my After Effects learning journey. I intend on using my new knowledge to make personal art as well as enhance my day-job work as a graphic designer in higher education. I cannot speak highly enough of Kalika. She was truly a pleasure.”

    Lisa Festa

  • “I had been trying to learn After Effects on my own for a while, but it wasn't until I decided to take the course through Noble Desktop that things really started to make sense for me. Now I feel that I have a solid foundation and am more excited than before about learning After Effects.”
