Meet the Instructor

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.
