Great and very helpful. I was lucky to be the only one in the class because it's a crazy complicated program. Highly recommend!

Learned so much! I was afraid of working in After Effects because at first glance, it's a very complicated/intimidating program. But, Laura was very clear, super helpful, and explained everything well!
