Worth Mentioning…


In an effort to bring more content and information to the Video Copilot world or wonders, I will be releasing a new series of free tutorials in addition to the free tutorials you are so generously accustomed to

These new tutorials will be shorter (1-5 minutes) and focus on cool techniques, follow-up advice on previous tutorials, workflow and even design tips. I’ve been collecting dozens of great ideas and I’ll be releasing these tutorials in between our featured tutorials you know so well.

This will also help us release new content on the site, even when we are busy working on big projects. (Like right now). It’s win win.

The first episode will be online May 02, 2008.

I’ve created a cool intro graphic but It’s not quite finished so it will have to wait…

T-Shirt Template


We’re almost finished with the T-shirt design contest site but the template is ready to download now. You can use any program to design the T-shirt such as Photoshop, illustrator or Paint (although the latter may hurt you chances).

IMPORTANT For Photoshop: When you open the PDF template be sure to set the “Crop To” option to “Media Box”.

Download Template PDF

Download includes PDF, PSD and vector image of Sam.

Official Rules will be launched soon so remember to check them before submitting your design.
