"Andrew is extremely knowledgeable on the subject and is always happy to answer questions. Personally, I feel there is a lot to cover and sometimes I feel I would have benefited of spending more time on some topics before moving on. Perhaps adding another day to this course could help (I have completed the 4 day course)."

"Andrew was extremely knowledgeable and had a an in-depth but relaxed teaching style, which put me at ease with asking any questions. If he went too fast for me/ others at times, he would always take the time to carefully go over the steps again."

"All steps were explained clearly with good examples shown and we were able to try everything ourselves to make sure we totally understood the concept. Andrew was very helpful in explaining things further where required. Overall it was very enjoyable and a valuable experience. "

I was keen to get a grounding in something I knew nothing about and wouldn't hesitate to book another course in the future. Thank you "

"Great-not too overwhelming and topics were all touched on at least once before so I had a small grasp of them before exploring them in more detail. Course has helped streamline my work flow and my knowledge of animate features that can be quite confusing. Pace was easy to follow and tasks were fun and not difficult to keep up with"

"Really knowledgeable, helpful and passionate tutor. It was a nice touch that Andrew learnt what each pupil wanted to learn from the course, or what it is they already knew. He kept linking it back to this throughout the two days. He had no trouble about answering questions outside of the designated lesson either. Would definitely recommend this course to anyone looking to further their after effects knowledge."

"Simon is a great personality to learn from. Unfortunately we had issues where the Macs in the training room were not working so we wasted 30 minutes. A nice surprise is that we got some official Adobe books to takeaway BUT there was not enough to go around all the team - these will be sent on to the office, hopefully. Otherwise a great couple of days - really enjoyed and had fun refreshing my skills in AE"
