Who Is This Course For?

Do any of the people below sound like you? If yes, then this course will be of great benefit to you.

  • You’ve always wanted to learn how to make Map Animations.
  • You've seen map animations online but can never seem to replicate the results yourself.
  • You're a complete beginner GEOlayers 3 user.
  • You want to make maps like Vox, Wall Street Journal, Vice or similar channels.
  • You want to learn how to make a variety of beautiful maps without having to watch YouTube tutorials.
  • You like structured step by step to the point learning.

...But YouTube is FREE?


Why should I pay for training when YouTube is FREE? YouTube tutorials are perfect for how to do a specific task, not how to properly learn the program to the point that you don't need to watch tutorials. What i'm offering is a 1,2,3... structured plan with the sole purpose of teaching skills that will allow you to create your own material and rely less on YouTube tutorials.



  • It’s free, but you’ll be paying in the additional time to learn.
  • It's all well and good following a tutorial, but you won't learn the skills that allows you to make your own videos.
  • I know i've been here, it can take around 2 years to really learn After Effects properly.
  • How do you know what you should be learning and when?
  • There is no plan & support available to you.
  • I know... 100% you'll learn bad habits and techniques.

Film School


  • Its expensive! A degree in animation will cost you around $30,000 in America.

  • It will take you about 18 months to complete full time.

  • You will get a structured course, but you’ll learn a lot of stuff that isn’t relevant to what you want to do.

  • You may not be learning the most up to date techniques and trends.

  • I have a bachelor in film and no one has ever asked to see it!

GEOlayers Mini Course



  • Its extremely affordable!
  • Straight to the point, structured learning.
  • You will have lifetime access.
  • You’re learning the most up to date techniques and online map trends.
  • Community support even after you finish the course.
  • My training has generated proven results for my students.

At The End Of This Course, Where Will You Be?

Imagine you’ve just finished the course and your beaming with confidence and motivation because you now have the skills to be able to tackle your own map animations for your next video.

Now compare this to the last animation you attempted, all the mistakes you made, the hours spent watching YouTube tutorials trying to make it work, the frustration that you just can’t get the desired results.

Do yourself a favour and invest in a step by step plan that is guaranteed and proven, and make life easier for yourself. See you on the inside…
