Stephen Schleicher, associate professor of information networking and telecommunications at Fort Hays State University, was chosen by DVcreators.net as one of the world's top After Effects experts to help them develop their new product, After Effects 7 PowerStart DVD. DVcreators.net is widely regarded as the finest digital video training organization in the world.
After Effects 7 PowerStart is a comprehensive, interactive course on DVD that guides users through completing two After Effects tutorials, beginning and advanced, and includes all student files and projects.
Schleicher shot and edited the content with his own equipment and sent his product to DVcreators.net.
Schleicher worked with President and CEO of DVcreators.net Josh Mellicker to produce this DVD. During the summer of 2005, Schleicher was also asked to write five chapters for Adobe Press's "After Effects 7 Classroom in a Book."
"Working with Josh and DVcreators.net has been a wonderful experience," said Schleicher. "It is clear the company is willing to take the time to craft a product that is both fun and informative."
Schleicher said that he would consider using both the book and the DVD in his classes. "It is one of the better books out there," said Schleicher.
Schleicher is well known for sharing his expertise on Web sites such as DVcreators.net, Digital Producer, Creative Mac, Digital Webcast, Digital Animators and DV Format.
