This workshop is for:
I was sitting at my desk late one night, scrolling through Instagram, when I stumbled across Chris Do's Instagram carousels. I thought it would be cool to animate this kind of content so I tried my hand at animating it myself.
The first attempt took four hours, but looking back on what I had done, there are many things that could have been improved with another hour or two of work. But I knew that if I wanted to get into animating social posts daily, I had to reduce that time.
I spent a week of daily tries and fails to set up the right workflow with automation, but I wanted something more. An innovative way to create posts across all social media platforms in seconds rather than hours or days! That's why I created this workshop - so you can get an inside-look at how to animate your content quickly.
Apostolos will teach you how to develop your idea for your social post and how to set up your After Effects template.
You're going to be animating right along with Apostolos! You'll design your post in After Effects, learn how to import designs from Illustrator and Photoshop, and get two slides animated in 15 minutes- all while learning how to use the right tools and some psychological tricks to attract attention.
Think you need to start all over to create your post for different social platforms? Think again! You'll convert the same post for various platforms like Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, Youtube, and LinkedIn, lickety-split!
Apostolos is dishing out his favorite resources to help you speed up your process for even faster results.
