During this course, you're going to run across a few movies that are labeled as challenges. Challenges are simply hands-on opportunities for you to practice and master what you're learning throughout the course. At the beginning of each challenge, I'll give you a clear set of objectives. If there're any sample files, I'll show you where to find those, and I'll also give you a rough estimate of how long each challenge took me to complete. When you've completed the challenge you need to come back and watch the solutions video. In that video I'll show you how I completed the challenge. And I'll give you some insight on my thought process along the way as well.
Challenges are an opportunity for you to practice what you're learning as we progress through the course. But they're also a chance for you to have a little bit of fun. So be sure you check them out
