Introduction to Adobe After Effects - part 1

So you've shot your content, edited it all together nicely and think you'll have a go at adding titles and graphics in Adobe After Effects. You open up the application and see all those panels and buttons appear in front of you, immediately panic and press quit! I get it, the first time I opened up AE I was the same. AE is an incredible motion graphics application with amazing potential but with so many panels, tools and options at your disposal the thought of trying to get to grips with it can understandably be quite daunting.

Truth is, it's that old 80/20 rule so getting to grips with the basics will help you produce quite a lot of creative content. I'll help you take those first steps to kickstart your AE journey with an introduction to the interface, highlighting the various panels and set-up formats we'll navigate through how to customise it to your needs and we'll do a few simple exercises to show you how the various transformation tools and layers work. I'll also point out some do's and don'ts of typography and design along the way in advance of my second session the next day.

(NB: These introductory sessions are designed for those with little or no knowledge of AE to give you the confidence to start your journey in motion graphics. Ideally you will need to have AE already installed on your laptops if you want to do the work-along practicals. If you don't already use the Adobe Creative Suite then Adobe generally has a 7 day free trial option, but remember to cancel your subscription before the trial is up.) 

You’ll need your laptops and Adobe After Effects and ideally Adobe Media Encoder ( for rendering ) installed, and you can access the assets we’ll be using in the animations here:

- Confidence to work with After Effects
- Re-thinking your approach to typography and graphics
- Ability to control keyframes and transitions and layers 

Introduction to Adobe After Effects - part 2

Following on from part 1 this work-along animation exercise will have you learning the most important tools, experimenting with layers and learning how to use keyframes more effectively plus some stock transitions. We'll also look at using comps and pre-comps to organise your work better and using shapes, masks and null objects. Finally we'll have a play with the curve editor and get those transitions looking super smooth and professional.

- Confidence to start animating your own brand logos and typography
- Effective use of keyframes
- Mastering the curve editor

Run and Gun (Cinematic filming on the go)

Please note this workshop is for beginner - Intermediate level and is a two part session on at separate times/days.

So you've picked up a camera or maybe even your phone. You're probably already shooting and producing content but want to take it up a level. Perhaps you get confused and don't know where to start when shooting on the go. There are so many elements to think about in order to capture the story you're trying to create but it feels overwhelming.

This session looks at how to shoot, capture content and create great videos on the go - and not be stressed about it! It's hard to get cinematic videos when on the go. You may be up against noisy cities, poor lighting, limited wifi, dust, sand and even interested members of the public and sometimes too interested people (policemen/ security guards).

We will cover many aspects that all contribute to a great video or film:

- How to vary your shots and get the perfect shots too!
- Building human relationships (not prioritised enough)
- Levelling up your B-roll
- Camera settings
- What gear should you use?
- Lens selection and shot selection
- How to plan your time
- Saving time in the edit
- tips and tricks
- Becoming a better storyteller
- Making your film have purpose and life beyond a single watch

There will also be opportunities for you to ask questions too! Here is an example of Ed's work with Empathy Week - this trailer was shot and edited entirely by him -

Participants will leave the session:
- understanding how they can improve the production level of their videos and an understanding of the equipment you can use to do this!
- more confident in planning and piecing together B-roll and A-roll footage to create a powerful story that engages the audience
- challenged to think about the purpose and use of the content they make
- how can it serve a purpose beyond just watching a beautiful story and film.
