Doctor of Philosophy, Illusionist

As mentioned in the Filmmaking Central interview, I’m teaching a class based on After Effects 7.0 Studio Techniques at in this, its third term. The class was just uploaded yesterday, and so if you’re actually interested in the class and this announcement has taken you by surprise, no worries – it’s possible to sign up at any time, and students can switch classes freely during the first two weeks of term, and because the first two weeks in this case span the holidays, week two won’t be until 2007.

It’s a unique opportunity for me to teach based on the book and learn more about how the information comes across to students. Because it’s an online course, the training is something like training videos, but then I the “professor” and the students interact in forums whose access is restricted only to students, adding an interactive element and fairly instantaneous feedback and dialog, which is what education is all about, right?

I even did a podcast (topping my biggest week of podcast exposure ever, a grand total of two) telling all about the class, so if you want more info, by all means, check it out. Otherwise, unless you’re my mom, you may prefer to save the space on your video iPod for ze Frank.

    Tricky to launch a web-based project right before leaving civilization! Ah well, if you can’t live dangerously, why live at all? Back next week…
