Intro to Motion

Registration for this course is now closed.

My new "Intro to Motion" course is now open for registration!

This course includes:

  • 22 training videos, totaling almost 2 hours
  • Three 90 minute online virtual workshops
  • That's almost 6.5 hours of training!

I've never really done a course like this one before. I'm very excited about it, and I hope it's super useful and valuable for you.

The 22 videos will be available for you to watch/download immediately.

I'll schedule the three 90 minute online workshops throughout the month of May.

If you can't attend a session live, that's okay because I'll record them and post the recordings in the course content area.

Registration closes for this course on May 9th at the end of the day.

Make sure you register before then.

What does the course cover? The course will cover fundamental tools and techniques in Motion.


Who is this course for? If you've never used Motion before and you want to learn it, this course is for you.

If you've used Motion before, but you want to become more familiar with the fundamentals, this course is for you.

If you're already super comfortable with Motion, this course probably isn't for you.

How long will you have access to the content? Access doesn't expire, so it will be available to you as long as this site is around (which hopefully will be for a long time).

Are the videos downloadable? Yes, all the videos are downloadable so you can keep them on your computer as long as you want. I just ask that you please don't share them with others.

Can you purchase it now and watch the content later when you have more time? Yes, you could do that. You can watch the videos (including the records of the workshops after they happen) anytime you want.

Will this course be offered again in the future? I don't know. It would be nice if I could offer it once per year or so. We'll see. If you think you might want the training, you should probably get it now just in case I don't offer it again.
