Here is my newest video
I do all my vfx stuff in hitfilm. I have started using resolved for grading recently and love how easy it is there. So I would love to learn how to use other programs to expand my horizons. This could be a good start

Here is my vfx video:
I do all my video editing on Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere but I would like to expand my knowledge in VFX programs and I think that this beginner course for After Effects will help me a lot in a short film that I will make that includes after effects vfx.

I would love to win a training course for After Effects. I have Adobe CC.

I am a total, inexperienced, newbie with no experience in making movies, but I am interested and would like to learn. When Surfaced Studio provided access to a free version of Hitfilm, it gave people like me a chance to learn something interesting.

I have an old website that has some artwork (traditional media, Illustrator, Photoshop). You can see it at

hello everyone , hope u all doing well !

I'm literally new to forums .. vfx .. and filmmaking on general , mainly because it's super hard to learn this stuff on my beloved country: Algeria. i studied English as much as i could (and i'm still learning) so i can gain and develop an artistic package of skills (especially vfx work using after effects amd blender). With that being said , i'm really ashamed to say : i have no after effects work to present here ? , but i'm hoping to win this free course so i get a great start and push in the filmmaking and vfx work ! . In the meantime , i'll be enjoying your youtube tutorials and learing as much as i can from them , so THANK YOU TOBIAS ! for the amazing work ,great personality , and the forums too ! wish me good luck everyone ?

Here is a VFX shot of a Doctor Who regeneration build-up shot I made:
I want to learn After Effects because it's one of the easier compositing software out there and it can be used as a foundation to expand to other compositing software in the future. The videos you upload to your youtube channel do help alot but having a full guide will give me that bit more knowledge I need.

Yay, new forums! I'm excited to get to know you all.

Since I don't have any VFX work, here's my film reel and website, if anyone's interested : -and-

I would love to win the After Effects course because it's the one Adobe program I feel completely lost in. Additionally, it's one of the most important ones to learn. I've been avoiding it ever since I got started in video, and I think it's about time I conquered it.

This forum idea its very useful, i always wanted a way to get in close with another media creators and ask some of my dudes about many VFX programs, now we have a way to connect with a comunnity that can help us each other to learn more about this amazing thing that is being a media creator.

Why i want the Adobe Course ?

- I have learned alot this years since i follow your Youtube channel, i really like what you do, i love using making designs and edit stufss, like 3D, video editing, post processing, motion tracking, etc so with the course i would improve much better my abilities more that i have reach with your videos. That will make me a better profesional and use more effort to achieve bigger results like the ones you do!

Hey, this forum is just what I needed! Thank you.

I've also a little youtube channel and since I would like to win the After Effects Course; here you can see a bit of my visual-effects work.

I would really like to win this course because I think you make the best tutorials and although I work with Hitfilm I think that I can learn a lot with your course.

Hi all!

I'm Giuseppe from Italy! I am a software developer and I'm study (and love) After Effects for fun!

I don't want to share my videos just because... they really sucks!

Sorry but I'm really a beginner, indeed I'm in this beautiful place and watch spectacular surfaced studio's videos to learn!

Thanks Tobia, I really appreciate you and your work!

Hi mentor!

My name is Kamran and I'm a video editor working on Adobe Premiere Pro.I've learned much from your Youtube channel and I never forgot your color grading and Adobe media encoder class.

Thanks for giving us free videos.

Here is my work on the premiere and also I've watched your video for color correction

I'm not forcing you to give course to me and forget about others because I know that how much difficult it is to make the course.

But if you think that animations can be better in my videos by using After Effect so you can think about the free course for me.

Thanks again for teaching us.

Hi Everyone!

I want to step up my game ;)

So learning more AE would be amazing, at the moment I am using mostly Premier for my works, but I want to change it.

Here you can see some of my works so far:

Hello there, So I have done some 3D modeling and render in the past, and recently I am trying to learn something new which is doing VFX. I have done a little bit of VFX before but still not really good at it. I really hope that getting this After effect course can boost my After Effect skills and knowledge. So that I will be able to integrate both 3D render and VFX into a short film.

Here is a past work of mine: PS. ignore the fact that it is Minecraft LOL It used to be popular okayy???

Attention please!

My name is... What?

My name is... Who?

Okay.. I'm Artur and my alias is R2R which stands for "Are-Two-R" and the last letter is for polish pronunciation. Now you get the sense of this simplistic nickname. xD

I`m here because my path had led me with ending up in here.

On the beginning of this year i decided that filmmaking (Visual fx, telling story via image) is what i REAALLYYY want to do in my life. Almost everyday i practicing AE, PR and lately some beginner stuff in blender. I hope this forum would answer my questions, give me some tips and lead me to become an professional filmmaker or atleast someone who gives some joy to the people.

Here's my latest short clip and showcase of my editing skills:

Oh, that's Funny! (y)
I want to win AE beginner tuts to be able to use this complicated program properly and learn ways of transforming what i have in my mind (vision) to do the video clip on another visual level and def. not like that -> follow your Squarepants imagination
That's all from me, thanks!
