Looking for someone… that can type

UPDATE: THANKS EVERYONE! We found some people to help. If we need more people, I will repost. You guys are great!

Our tutorials are going to eventually include the ability to show and hide subtitles… Basically are going to transcribe all the tutorials from www.videocopilot.net

July 7th, 2008 @ 1:51 pm
wow, that are allot of tutorials to cover :)

All that extra typing with all Andrew his jokes about Sam haha.
I love them, it makes me laugh in front of the screen.
July 7th, 2008 @ 1:53 pm
Does it matter if you don't live in America? I guess it would be a challenge when it comes to pay though...
July 7th, 2008 @ 1:55 pm
you dont want some one to blow stuff up. damn i cant type fast.
July 7th, 2008 @ 2:07 pm
You could try windows speech to text on the tutorials.
July 7th, 2008 @ 2:11 pm
Yea I type pretty fast and I'd be happy too. But..I don't live in America
July 7th, 2008 @ 2:18 pm
Hi, i already sent you an email about this, but you can answer here if you like. I'm 14 years old and live in Australia, I don't know if you could employ me?
July 7th, 2008 @ 2:21 pm
I can type... and live in the area... damn... I am too late aren't I?
July 7th, 2008 @ 2:23 pm
Hey whats up, Andrew Kramer here for Video Copilot Dot Net, And welcome to another very exciting After Effects tutorial.
Today were going to take a look creating some energy inside of After Effects so heres what were going to be doing

Okay so we have a whole bunch of particle layers, we have these paper particles, we have energy particles, the twister and of course the FedEx truck down here.
Okay lets go ahead and get started, I'm going to take our New York shot drag it into the new comp button create a new comp, this is a shot I took while I was in New York and ah it came in handy cause now were using it for a new tutorial


This is from the last tutorial (68. Energy) , took me about 45 seconds to do this much :)
But I did not check Spelling or Grammar
July 7th, 2008 @ 2:25 pm
Edit, Thats 1 min 45 seconds to complete that much

July 7th, 2008 @ 2:30 pm
How about french subtitles? I'm a french guy living in New Zealand, so I'm fluent in both english and french.
Let me know if you guys are keen.
July 7th, 2008 @ 2:39 pm
Andrew, with all the free tutorials you have done for us... I think many, many of us
would help you with this task for free, I know I would if you need my help I will transcribe a some tutorials for FREE.

July 7th, 2008 @ 2:40 pm
Last time I checked, I could type at about 67 WPM with little error. Don't know if that will help you out or not, but I am willing to help in any way I can. Thanks for everything Andrew!
July 7th, 2008 @ 2:44 pm
My wife is a transcriptionist that has helped me on feature-length DVDs and such. Let me know if you need additional help and she'll be up for it (she says so, I promise) ;)
July 7th, 2008 @ 2:44 pm
For sheer cost economics and scalability — AND quality if you find the right people, I suggest using the Amazon Mechanical Turk. http://mturk.com I've found some gems on there, and I know certain services like CastingWords also use them as an intermediary. Best of hope with the transcriptions!
July 7th, 2008 @ 2:48 pm
I'll do it. :D
Daryl Booth
July 7th, 2008 @ 2:51 pm
I can do it... And just to prove it I began typing this as soon as you posted up the request. STOP THE CLOCK!!

Did I do well?
July 7th, 2008 @ 3:05 pm
Hey, if you'd want to add subtitles in Spanish too, I could help you.
That'd open a brand new market for you and lots of more people would benefit from your great tutorials.

And THANKS A LOT for the amazing work you do with the whole Video Copilot experience.

Andrew I know you said "We don’t need instructions" but I found this site
not sure how well it works but check it out!

July 7th, 2008 @ 3:27 pm
I wouldn't mind doing some for free, or even videocopilot store credit :P
July 7th, 2008 @ 3:29 pm
I'd like to do it, but if you already have people to do it, then ah well ;D
July 7th, 2008 @ 3:29 pm
Hey Andrew, get VFX-Anomaly to do it. I can already hear your voice just by reading the text he wrote...hehehe...
July 7th, 2008 @ 3:32 pm
Hi Andrew, I would like to make Spanish subtitles if one day you consider doing them.
July 7th, 2008 @ 3:35 pm
Yeah I'll second the store credit idea, but I'd also do a couple gratis because the site rocks and has taught me so dang much about AE.

I've bought a few DVDs, but whatever I can do to help the cause...
Jared R
July 7th, 2008 @ 3:55 pm
I'd sure as hell do it for a little store credit. I'm 81 words per minute, so I can probably type about as fast as you talk on the tutorials. I would die for this opportunity.
July 7th, 2008 @ 3:57 pm
Hey Andrew! i would do it right now! but i have frikkin finals now :\
...so i dont have time to fart, even :]

...Guys, i think as a graditude, we should all just help,and give a hand...
This is really not sucha big deal. If everyone trancripts just One tutorial-well share the load off one person having to do it all, And itll go Much faster. i guess itll take 1 hour of your life to dedicate to it.....just to show how thankful the community is for what AK is doing here.

if youre into it-the only thing we need to sort out is who transcripts what.. :]
ill be happy do to it after the 15th [=date of my last exam...thank god! :]
good night, dudes :]
July 7th, 2008 @ 4:04 pm

If you're ever interested on implementing Spanish subtitles I'm up for the challenge.
I have a very fluent english and native spanish.

And of course, I would love to work with the VideoCopilot crew.

July 7th, 2008 @ 6:32 pm
If you ever need Indonesian subtitles, I'd be happily to do it for you. I'm fluent in both Indonesian and English :)

UPDATE: THANKS EVERYONE! Looks like we have several good candidates. If we need more help I will repost. You guys are great!

Our tutorials are going to eventually include the ability to show and hide subtitles… so we are looking for 2 individuals that can type fast and write in English. Basically we need to transcribe all the tutorials from www.videocopilot.net. We don’t need instructions just a word for word transcription.


I transcribed that in a few seconds!!!! btw.. is it still transcribing if you copy and paste?

July 8th, 2008 @ 8:39 am
Hello Andrew. If it is not too late, I would love to be one of the candidates to transcribe the tutorials. I am a pretty good speller and have good grammar - I know how and when to use colons, hyphens, commas, ect. I'm not sure if it matters or even if you are still taking applicants; however, I am a sixteen-year-old U.S. resident (employment at my age is legal in the state I am in) and I am more than happy to transcribe the tutorials.
July 8th, 2008 @ 9:10 am
I don't have any fancy book learning but I'm fluent in prison slang. The guards have restricted our 'internet time' now but I can send em in on toilet paper using some home made 'crayons', I was saving them for a wicked new shank but I'd like the chance to give back to video copilot as well as society.
July 8th, 2008 @ 9:24 am
July 8th, 2008 @ 9:33 am
hey Andrew, if you need to translate it to Spanish in the near future, I'm a candidate for sure!
July 8th, 2008 @ 10:31 am
Man I should of saw this earlier I can type at a speed of 126wpm. I've gone to many competitions for keyborading. 126 wpm is'nt too fast compared to some people out there that are way faster. Dang I really wanted this.

July 8th, 2008 @ 11:22 am

I have teleprompter experience via my work at God's Learning Channel, a Christian television station operating out of Texas. I have been typing - aye, in English :p - since I first learned how to use a Commodore 64 way back in Elementary School. I can do approx. 80 words per minute and consider myself fairly skilled with the latest version of Microsoft Office.
July 8th, 2008 @ 2:13 pm
Have you considered Spanish and other languages?
Man you have fans all over the world

July 8th, 2008 @ 3:10 pm
Hi again Andrew...fantastic news that you are going to include subtitles in future tutorials. I have a few hearing impaired students that use your website to learn After Effects (as we have spoken about before) that would greatly benefit from this. There are many video based learning resources on the web now for all the different areas of Screen & Multimedia production, but unfortunetly very few are subtitled. My wife is also hearing impaired and after struggling for 4 & 1/2 years at uni, with non-subtitled online resources, your announcment is really encouraging to both her & the deaf community. Can videocopilot get any better! Legends.

Hi there i'm willing to help put in the time if needed. I know you have a blog full of volunteers talking about their typing skills, so what stands out about me, hmmm... yes i'm up there in the mid 60 wpm... this year is my 10th year in the United States chAIR Force! (yes i represent the behind the desk pencil pushers =P ), i know how to correctly spell "you're" when most people spell it "your," if i end up picking my nose while transcribing your videos, i promise to wipe my boogers or what ever else comes out of there on a napkin and wash my hands before i touch the keyboard again, which in turn keeps your words Andrew, at the highest level of uberness without degregating the quality of.......

*jeopardy theme*

sorry i picked my nose, just got back from washing my hands... i forgot what i was going to say! darn it... i guess you're not the only one with a sense of humor on this thing Andrew... =)

July 8th, 2008 @ 10:15 pm

When you need someone to translate the tutorials into german I'm your man. Why? I'm from Germany :) My english is good enough to understand your tutorials und most of your jokes :) The best is: I have vacations for the next 9 months and nothing to do in this time. So give me an answer if you're interestet.

July 20th, 2008 @ 6:23 pm
hey there,
not sure if someone asked this already. (dont want to read through all 100 and sum comments) but with adding subtitles will you be able to search through a tutorial based on a word search? that would be most radical.

also, recieved the bullet dvd. excellent work. i use to pound my head working in c4d. just seeing how to properly set up a file and key commands saved me so much frustration.
thanks. great work!

Hey Sir Kramer,

If you need any help to translate your tutorials in French, let me know and I'll help you out.

I live in Eastern Canada (Montreal) and I usually speak French but my Canadian citizenship force me to know both English and French. I'm not a typing machine but I can handle a good flow of words...

Hope I'll get some feedback !
