I have been the Senior Multimedia Producer and team lead for a major London university for the last 9 years and with many more years prior to that, creating and producing multimedia content, 2/3D animation, explainer videos, presentations and whiteboard animation.
I have been working with and coaching both PowerPoint and Keynote for most of my 40 years in this industry and will show you how to take your presentation, *simple animation or *simple explainer video to another level.
(*simple - by virtue of some inherent limitations to these applications, compared to the high-end applications, made specifically for producing video)
I believe in 'project teaching' - working with a concept or plan, rather than simply investigating what the app can do. If you have already have a project in mind or one already produced, we can look at how it can be enhanced and improved, to create a more memorable and impactful presentation or video. (Note: Some typography and graphic design knowledge will certainly be useful - again, this is something I can advise on)
I have been personally using and coaching / teaching the various uses of PowerPoint and Keynote for over 20 years in all.
Both applications have been integral in my own multimedia work and I have created and produced presentations, explainer videos and video clips for my own clients.
My rates may be negotiable, depending on student numbers at any one time - contact me with any queries.
I have mentioned that I have over 40 years experience as a designer, illustrator, multimedia and video creator... and making storyboards, animations and presentations to pitch or 'sell' a concept for a client, has meant that presentation applications such as PowerPoint are integral.
I know he is my brother but I also know that this man really knows his stuff. I would highly recommend his tutoring in any form of art or IT. A huge thumbs up!
Oh my word - Ian is the very best !!
I have known Ian for the past 25 years. He is a hugely, multi-talented artist. Not only painting with oils, but also water colours and pencil sketches to name but a few. However, his knowledge and talent is not only limited to traditional paintings, but also covers digital art and in fact his talent pertaining to art as a whole is vast. One of his greatest qualities is his willingness and love to share his knowledge with others by way of teaching. I have personally learned so much from Ian and I know I will still learn much more. He is such a patient tutor and I cannot recommend him highly enough! I know without a doubt, that anyone learning from Ian will be hugely blessed and learn so much!
I’ve known Ian for many years. He is an amazing artist, great friend and a great choice for your personal tutor! I know you’ll learn from him and enjoy the experience.
Ian has such a gentle and reassuring way of teaching. You know you are safe to ask endless questions and he has such patience, listening and sharing his wealth of knowledge. It doesn't matter whether someone is a beginner or has been an artist for many years, Ian has a way of teaching everyone and you come away feeling like you cannot wait for the next lesson.
Ian has given lessons throughout his career as an Artist and I have watched him encourage and support beginners and accomplished artists, alike. He is confident, with many years of experience in all mediums.
Ian has been an artist for many years (40+) and has worked in every medium of art. He is a very passionate and talented artist. His experience and knowledge will be an asset to Superprof to give lessons to any age of person interested in learning. I highly recommend Ian for this position!
I have known Ian for well over 15 years, having worked with him on both 2D and 3D projects in the media industry. As a traditional Graphic Artist and Illustrator who had transitioned from creating artwork 'by hand' to computer generated graphics, I hadn't yet used any 3D software. Ian helped me to learn Cinema 4D and Poser, and his teaching style was both inspiring and nurturing.
Ian has a superior knowledge of design and illustration. He constantly keeps up-to-date with software programme updates and learning new ones. His technical ability is second to none, and I would highly recommend Ian as a tutor to anyone wanting to improve their technical skills, learning from a master. I wouldn't be where I am today without Ian's expert advice and encouragement.
Besides his wealth of knowledge, his exceptional talent and a vast range of experience and skills Ian is also committed to humanitarian activities and is actively engaged in community and charitable work. This says much for his character and personality.
As a retired Design School head and having employed and worked with many lecturers, tutors, researchers etc over the last 32 years I would certainly recognize the rare combination of skills and knowledge that Ian would be able to contribute at any level.
