I’ve been looking at various certification programs. I’m going to begin by getting certified as A.C.E. for Photoshop and then go for After Effects. Photoshop first, because I see it as a good base for After Effects and because I happened upon a very reasonably priced certification prep program. I’m excited about this venture. In the process I’m going through some classes for photography to increase my skills as a cinematographer. It amuses me since I began my adventures in video with the thought of sticking strictly to editing, but finding myself in a preditor (producer/editor) position in my freelance career has completely altered my career path and need for perfecting various skills. Not to mention getting those certifications will look mighty nice on my portfolio.
