At School of Motion we’ve built a teaching philosophy that enables us to deliver an amazing, interactive experience to any students regardless of their physical location, work schedule, or skill level. Our courses are the most in-depth motion design training on the planet and our secret sauce is simple...a combination of best in class content, in-depth critiques, and an extremely welcoming community. In the video below you will hear from our CEO, Joey Korenman, about what makes School of Motion so unique.

Our flexible course format makes it possible to be engaged from anywhere in the world on your own schedule. All of our courses are taught completely online through pre-recorded lesson videos, podcasts, and handouts. Students typically receive homework assignments twice per week, which have soft deadlines. All student work is critiqued by our highly trained Teaching Assistants. School of Motion TA's are professional motion designers with real life experience in the industry. They will be available throughout the entire session to critique work in our proprietary critique portal. Our TA's are able to critique unlimited versions of the assignments so students get the feedback they need to sharpen their skills. During the course students are invited to a private Facebook group that contains all of the Teaching Assistants and students in the session. This is a great tool for connecting, asking or answering questions, sharing thoughts or insights, and winning cool contests!
