Hey, all.

My name is Rog and I run an annual collaborative writing event to write a novel in a day called “Novel in a Day”. The event has been sponsored by a software company and Im producing a few videos as part of that sponsorship deal — which is one of the prime reasons I’m interested in the AE course!

I’m also a hobbiest photographer (with a particular fondness for wildlife) who has been increasingly taking video footage as well. That’s more a Premiere job than AE (at the moment, anyway) so I’ll be in that part of the forum a bit too!

I don’t have any videos without copyright restrictions to share at the moment, but in the interests of sharing *something*, the NiaD event is at !

Hey everyone!

Here is my visual FX reel that is a few years old.

Also the trailer for a feature film I shot, edited and did the VFX. (I did not write or direct it) Premiering soon.

I always enjoy learning new things in After Effects, so the Udemy course would be great!

Thanks Tobias for the new forums on Surfaced Studio!

Hi Tobias. Your new web site looks fantastic. I'd be interested in knowing what it's built on and especially what you used for the forum.
Here's a link to my only real After Effects video. It's a kinetic typography music video I did just for fun. It's called " (prayer's the) Activator "
I'd love to take your course for the amazing price of nothing. Who could pass that up?

Oh wow!
Some awesome stuff here already !!! That's really amazing to see!

Thank you all for joining into my forums! I am really excited!

I have moved a few replies into this forum/topic because they were clearly meant for my giveaway but posted in the incorrect spot.

Also, I am still tweaking things - and figuring out how to run these forums properly - so things might change a bit here and there.

If you have any questions (or suggestions) let me know! Always keen for feedback

Just saw your last post about the wrong poster giveaway posts. I have to tell you I had trouble finding this spot here. Only place I was able to find it (on phone) was a small link somewhere at the bottom.

WHat link at the bottom are you referring to?

You can get to this topic simply via Forums -> Introduce Yourself -> Forum Launch Giveaway – Win an After Effects Beginner Course (sticky, so it's always at the top of the forum).

Am I missing something?

Hi, I'm RajMir. I have a small YouTube channel. I want to expand my channel and include tech related videos as my content that's why I want to win this giveaway, I don't know anything about after effects, so I think it's a great opportunity to learn after effects. Also I didn't know anything about premier pro and didn't know how to edit videos but you taught me how to edit from your youtube channel, After that I was able to edit my youtube videos and upload it on my channel.

My Winter-To-Spring transition ;)

Focus on the intro from winter to summer. The rest of the video is in Norwegian and is just some vlog-ish stuff I tend do do sometimes. Would love the free course, though ;)

If you DO understand Norwegian, and for some reason find my vlogs funny, please consider subscribing to my channel ;)

Best Regards

Hey there !

I’m a primary school teacher in France working with children in the autistic spectrum and I use video as a support to teach complex tasks like swimming, climbing... It works great as they are generally imitating behaviours of others instead of having to understand complex oral interactions. I’m planning on using after effects to make these videos clearer and more compelling, hopefully expanding their use to other areas like maths and reading!

Can’t show u any work so far as I’m completely new to AF!

Thanks and keep up the good work, your videos are very inspiring and lively!

Hello, This is David Mincey and I would like to win the AE drawing because I'm an Absolute beginner and trying to learn video production! I apologize for not having any content to share.

Thanks for the videos that I can watch on youtube they help tremendously

And Have A Great Day! Ok, I confess I have my very first video that was not edited and have a lot to learn.

Hello, Tobias, it's very nice that you now also have a forum.

I am Manuel, I am 23 years old and I'm from Argentina. I like to work with Photoshop and Premiere Pro but video editing was usually one level too high for me with this products.

I’ve been using After Effects since april and I learn with YouTube.

After a short time I came to your channel and there I found exactly what I wanted. Short videos to the point.

Every week I look forward to more videos of you.

Look forward to more and greetings from Argentina.
