Motion Beast 2

Course Overview

The curated training program will cover all motion design aspects and teach you how to think creatively when doing unusual tasks.

The main problem every motion designer has is learning how to find the knowledge and tools to perform specific tasks. When it comes to practice, everyone is struggling. There is something more than skills and techniques when it comes to performing actual tasks. That’s why you need personal assistance from a pro. We will cover digital animation, frame by frame, and 3D.

Another important thing is creative thinking. It’s a must-have skill when it comes to motion design and animation. We will train your brain so you can combine all your knowledge to create a brilliant piece of art that will become NFT in the end and will be owned by You.

Exclusive After Effects Tools + Creative Thinking + Personal Feedback will change how you’re animating forever!
