Daniel Walter Scott

Sharing is who I am, and teaching is where I am at my best, because I've been on both sides of that equation, and getting to deliver useful training is my meaningful way to be a part of the creative community.
I've spent a long time watching others learn, and teach, to refine how I work with you to be efficient, useful and, most importantly, memorable. I want you to carry what I've shown you into a bright future.
I have a wife (a lovely Irish girl) and kids. I have lived and worked in many places (as Kiwis tend to do) but most of my 14+ years of creating and teaching has had one overriding theme: bringing others along for the ride as we all try to change the world with our stories, our labours of love and our art.
I'm a certified Adobe instructor (ACI) in Ireland. I'm also an Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) and have completed the Adobe Certified Associate training (ACA). And I don't just do Adobe. Remember, media is a very broad term digital blew out the borders, so we are all constantly learning.
I've been teaching for 14+ years. I come from being a media designer and content creator so I understand exactly where you're at now. I've been there. I love this stuff. Print, digital publishing, web and video. I can see how it all connects. And I can see how we can share those connections.
I built Bring Your Own Laptop in Ireland, New Zealand, Australia & online. I have a great team working with me to keep BYOL at the top of Adobe and digital media training. I u

Great course for beginners. Easy to follow along and good tips. Now ready to move to advance course and start compositing my own videos.

Great instruction from Daniel. From lesson to lesson, the course has a great flow. Lots of extra information and even a little learning through mistakes, which is valuable for anybody. We're all bound to run into things we'll get frustrated with, especially if we're just beginning. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in learning After Effects.

Pros. Great content, mostly enjoyed the style.Cons. Not very in depth, compared to others,All in all enjoyed, though you might want to consider other options also alongside or instead.

Dan has a great teaching style that makes it easy to watch and learn. He breaks up his courses into small digestible bits that help to retain the info. Ive signed up for almost all of his courses and rewatch them frequently.

First of all I like this instructor so much that I pretty much buy anything he releases without a second thought. Having said that, I feel like this course is lacking too much, to say that Id take what I learned in a single one of this projects, say the Swinging text section, and apply it purely to one of mine would be a lie, it feels like it was left undone, I was left with the feeling that I should go check if someone on youtube finished it up so that I could present something of high quality. I get that one cannot learn an entire software in 3-4 hours, but still, I wouldnt say that with this course you'll be able to -impress your clients and get that job as a motion designer-.

I felt this course was a very quick introduction to After Effects for absolute beginners. Daniel's explanations are very clear and engaging.

The course does a good job of going through the basics of AE. Some areas feel a little light on explanation but there's clearly so much to learn with this software that it's impossible to teach everything here. Would recommend.

The course was well put together and the concepts built perfectly. The material was engaging and I was able to learn the skills fast. I love this instructor.

I learned a great deal! You left me wanting more so now I get to explore and try things out on my own. Thanks so much!

I now search for Dan's classes only!!!!! He is absolutely an incredible teacher that keeps his classes very engaging and easy to understand. I was a designer back in 2007 and started looking for courses to brush up my skills. I would highly recommend these classes to both pros and beginners. Thank you, Dan, being an art teacher myself makes me appreciate how well you take each class

Simply amazing. I went from being a total novice to becoming pretty decent. Thanks Dan, I got my money's worth

Having a Great Time! The course got me excited to just explore and create newer stuff. The course is designed to be engaging and the concepts are explained perfectly. Thanks, Daniel!
