Who is this online course for?

Visual artists, designers, photographers, illustrators, and anyone interested in unleashing their creativity.

Requirements and materials

Basic knowledge of photography is recommended. You also need an intermediate level in Adobe Photoshop and After Effects.

Regarding materials, you need a digital camera that captures both photo and video, a tripod, a computer with After Effects and Photoshop installed, a basic stationery kit (pens, markers, pencils, erasers...), a notebook, and all the props and curious objects you lay your hands on.

New to Adobe After Effects? In that case, we recommend taking Domestika Basics courses to learn how to use the software: Introduction to After Effects.
