Launching a website is a lot of work…

Hey thoughtful and understanding community!

Things are moving along well but there was more to do than I realized. I do have a tutorial I will post to keep you occupied in the mean time. We should be ready to launch this week, but I want to wait until the weekend to minimize any possible down time. I wish I could tell you about all the cool new stuff…

Andrew,
Check it out. A little Film Magic Pro, some Adv. Sky replacement, add some Designer SFX, and a attempt at re-creating your car hit scene. Where the dude walks acrossed the street and gets hit by a van. Let me know what you think if you get a chance. Constructive feedback is always more than welcome. Sorry about the youtube quality.

AK!!! I've been a HUGE fan of your tuts (and your products of course) for quite some time now and I have to say that my success as a film editor is a big result of your tuts and your amazing talent. Thanks for everything brother and keep them coming (but take your time...I'd rather they be more informative and detailed, than not)!!

You are creating so much value for the world Andrew. Your ideas and tutorial are the most inspiring things I've seen in a LONG time and it's very refreshing.

I'm a dad of 4 and understand the stress of bringing a baby into this world. I hope you have a wonderful experience with your wife at this special time. The world can wait :)

All the best.
