Watch the video to see what's inside

Carl Schooff

I spent nearly 7 years as Geek Ambassador at GreenSock creating their official training materials, youtube videos, and interactive demos that are all over greensock.com.

Having spent years in their support forums ammassing over 9,000 posts I have quite a bit of experience teaching people how to animate with code and avoid common beginner mistakes.

With that position behind me and a totally new API introduced with GSAP 3, I knew I would still need a place to share all that excites me about scripted animation. That’s why I created the Creative Coding Club, it provides a way for me to reach and teach the most people at a price anyone can afford.

Carl is not only an expert with GSAP, but he's also an interesting mix of relatable, funny, and professional. The videos are easy to follow and cover the essentials (and then some). We've all seen boring, technical videos stuck in the theoretical, making you feel dumb or utterly bored which is why I appreciate Carl's style so much. He's "one of us", explaining things that actually make sense in the real world. Watch his courses and you'll be an animation superhero in no time. Highly recommended!

The course introduces some basic concepts and shows how to animate on the web using GSAP 3. Great CodePen demos accompany the course and offer users the opportunity to practice what they've learnt. There's a project to complete and some guidance on how to use the awesome docs on the GSAP website. Warmly recommended to beginners of this animation super library.

I got a few surprises using code pen. It really opened my ideas about putting code together with CSS and JS. I wish I had this course years ago. Carl does an excellent effort in presenting the information and following up with workable examples. He also provides written examples so the information stays on your brain and picking up where you left off is easy. I am looking forward to seeing how this all fits in with Animate. Carl's examples are easy to put in practice and really jazz up my boring presentations. Carl you should have been a teacher. You have the perfect combination of showing, explaining, and demonstrating how code works. I want more of your ideas!!!!! Five stars plus! Thanks for sharing Bill

Presentation was very clear and at a pace just nice. Carl’s way of teaching generated good understanding, especially the visualiser he used to describe timeline. Carl also shared tips which a less experienced tutor may not notice. Excellent!

Review GSAP 3 Express

Stuart Neiman

I like the simple, short explanations with the visual to help grasp the concepts. I hope to see more of this type of course.
