Busy doing After Effects with Lodi Paul, what a powerhouse of information and inspirational lecturer. True quality education, knowledge and experience it’s opened my world to another dimension in what’s available in the world of advertising, motion graphics, animation and the like. Thanks Lodi
The course and lecturer was great. When I didn’t understand something I could always ask without feeling bad. The way in which the course was conducted was great. My overall experience was good and I will definitely come back.
Lovely experience, was patiently and thoroughly taught the essentials of After Effects. The course schedule worked perfectly with my work schedule. Everything was easy to understand and helping assistance was always available.
I have done short courses at a different institution before and I must say that my experience at the Academy of Digital Arts was infinitely better. The lecturer was great, very informative and always willing to help. Even though I had a very good understanding and a lot of experience in After Effects before the course I found that I learnt a lot regardless and got and even better understanding of the program which is what I wanted to achieve. I actually wish the course had been a week or two longer just to gain more knowledge but I think I’ll have to come back to the Academy of Digital Arts for a different course.
I greatly enjoyed studying with the Academy of Digital Arts. Great lecturers and atmosphere, I would definitely come back!
Shot Academy of Digital Arts for an awesome course. I thought I knew everything when my company signed me up, but you opened my eyes to some great tricks of the trade and work processes.
Was impressed by the material and lecturing style. The trainer was engaging and knowledgeable, and took us step by step through the process. Well structured and polished.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this course. It has been such a significant experience for me because I have never been surrounded with so many people as excited about Concept Art as I am. I’d recommend this course to as many people as I can.
Great start to begin concept art, really opened my eyes to how objects are created using different values of grey. 10/10. Would recommend to others.
A++ for Andrew being the most enthusiastic teacher and knowing his stuff.
Most focused drawing/painting course I’ve been to, could feel myself improve. Loved it, you’re a brilliant lecturer.
