Meet the instructor:

Brian Maffitt brings a singularly diverse background to presenting and directing. As a former professional actor, photographer, carpenter, and Graceland Tour Guide, he jumped on board the computer graphic revolution in the late 1980s. He founded MAFF/x in 1993 and won several awards for video production, interactive design, and animation. Brian also co-founded Atomic Power Corporation and released two award-winning sets of software plugins for After Effects, “Psunami”, and “Evolution”. The latter was acquired by Adobe in 2001 and is now included with every copy of After Effects sold, and has been featured prominently in untold commercials and films,including Pixar’s Academy Award-winning “The Incredibles”.

A combination of communication skills and computer proficiency made video training a natural progression. As Total Training’s co-founder and Chief Creative Officer, he is devoted to great training, crafted by an extraordinary creative team, for exceptional customers. And if he can occasionally make you smile (or roll your eyes) along the way, so much the better.
