Treat your ears and school your brain.

I can't praise Joey and team more at School of Motion they really do an incredible job at providing on point content! Keep it coming guys I need more! The podcast is a fantastic asset for any motion designer or creative and I highly reccomend you tune in and subscribe. I've been in the industry for over 5 years now and studied design at University but I can honestly say I've learnt just as much again from listening to this podcast. I wish I had this before I got into the industry as it's second to none. It's also a brilliant way of keeping in touch with the community and discovering new talent and much more.
