Create your own animation

As a professional motion designer it's my job to create wonderful animations for my clients and help them get their message out to their audience. It's a job I love doing, and it's a job that takes time to get right.

Sometimes though, time is of the essence and budgets may not always stretch to creating bespoke animations which is a real shame because animation and video content is a great way to spread the word and inform people.

To help remedy this, and to bring more animation into the world, I've created a training series that teaches you how to customise an animated template in After Effects and produce your own animated video content. In just over an hour, you can learn how to customise the text, colours, and animated elements of the template and produce your very own animation. Perfect if you're in a rush or on a budget and need to create a video.

You can either do-it-yourself completely, or alongside the template, there's also the Action Support Membership which gives you access to professional advice and tips about the template and After Effects in general.

So if you're in need of some animation and want to try things out yourself, give the training series a whirl!

Rewilding the planet with freelance animation and motion design

We've only got one planet, and right now it needs all the help it can get. Climate change and biodiversity loss are massive challenges that we need to tackle head on.

That's why, for every freelance animation project over £1000 a donation of 1% of the total budget will be made to the World Land Trust, on your behalf.

The money will go towards WLT's "buy an acre" programme; buying up and protecting vital habitats around the world, and helping fight against climate change.

Any motion design projects under £1000 will have a tree planted on your behalf.

Acres saved so far:

Thanks to my wonderful clients and the animations we've produced, enough money has been donated to save around:

17.5 Acres of vital habitats around the world.

Just think, your animated explainer video or logo animation could also be helping fight the climate crisis!
