We're excited to have a new After Effects course lead by a familiar name in the motion graphics industry, designer Harry Frank. This practical, software-based course will focus on creating a professional broadcast graphics package from scratch. Harry has done numerous high-profile national broadcast packages over the year for networks such as NBC, ABC, Fox, and G4TV. One of the strengths of After Effects is its plug in architecture and offerings such as Trapcode Particular, Form, and Lux are workhorses of mograph artists. Over the ten weeks, After Effects will be at the center of the course in conjunction with these and other plug ins from Red Giant Software.

In the broadcast industry, turn-around times for deliverables can be short, which makes efficiency a key component of being a professional motion designer. We need to have the right tools at our fingertips with an in-depth understanding of them to achieve this. This will be the core focus of this course: accelerating your creativity with your tools.

In AFX213, students will be building a graphics package for a broadcast awards ceremony. We will build assets such as a short show open, logo animation, full screen graphic, lower third, and transitional elements. This class will give students the opportunity to be creative, building a graphics package from scratch. Students are encouraged to take advantage of this experience with peer and instructor review in a special work sharing forum on the site. Members have found this level of interaction to be extremely valueable part of the course.

Harry originally studied music engineering and worked in both audio post-production and studio engineering, before entering the motion graphics field 12 years ago. He has worked in Detroit, Chicago, and Los Angeles as a freelance motion designer, with clients such as, Blur Studio, Digital Kitchen, and many more. As an instructor and author, he has authored numerous tutorials and training titles on motion design, After Effects Expressions, Trapcode Particular and Form, and Cinema 4D. In Detroit, he was an Adjunct Faculty at the College for Creative Studies.
