What is this course about?

1. Anyone can be cool.
You might think that most of the amazing animations you see on your feed are created using advanced techniques. But the truth is that any animation can be broken down into a few basic actions. In this course, we will explore how some simple tricks, when added to each other, can drastically increase the quality of your animations.
