Fringe Premieres Tonight

One of the top secret projects I worked on recently was the intro for the new FOX show Fringe. It premieres tonight at 8/7c.

It’s funny because the intro has not been published or aired yet, but some people have guessed I was somehow involved… I WAS involved, just not in any of the great advertisements that Fox created to promote the show.

I was honored to be able to work on the project and with producer J.J. Abrams. Not only is he a great guy but you may be surprised to know that he is a fellow After Effects user too :) Pretty cool.

Be sure to check it out!

This is my favorite show! Love the intro!
The titles feel very much like your work. You did an awesome job!

I'm guessing people saw some of the previews for Fringe on the Fox web site and saw the ink drop elements from Riot Gear. Though I've been seeing those in a lot of places these days. :)

Also, I'm guessing now that the other top secret project is for the film Body of Lies (the helicopter scenes in the trailers look strikingly familiar). If I'm right, blink twice....

I just saw the second episode (;)) and I saw AK's opening sequence again. And it hit me... this opening will be seen and used many, MANY times. Imagine seeing you work used in such a way. Andrew should be proud of his work, its certainly amazing.

P.S. Once again the intro is AWESOME.=

Hey Andrew,
Why was my post edited? That's kind of lame. I didn't say anything remotely obscene, vulgar, controversial, mean, or off-topic. Did I interrupt the Andrew Kramer lovefest? It was a joke. I guess you didn't get it.

Hey Andrew - Congratulations!!!

I watched the show on Tuesday and during the intro I honest to gosh - no kidding - thought, "Andrew Kramer could do this - looks like his kind of stuff" and I also thought, "Thanks to Andrew, I have some idea of how to do it myself" So thanks for all the kind lessons you've provided to those of us online, and once again, congratulations on your success - may it lead to more and more.

Blessings,
Shawn

I was watching this at my parent's house, and when I see it, my jaw drops. My mom asks, "what?"

I tell her it's nothing, but I know that it's yours. It would be too long of a story to explain.

I also thought of you when the Blackhawk helicopters were flying over Baghdad.

I just LOVE the matchmoved scene setters. That is such a good idea, and if I had the resources to make it look real, I'd do it myself.

I forgot about it last night somehow (never even saw info on the show actually, but I mainly just watch Jeopardy, Discovery, TLC) and I would have seen it online if FOX didn't have some stupid proprietary player on their site. I don't see why people think it important to have their own stupid player in order to show you their content. I'll try to catch it but if I can't I guess I'll cast aside my proprietary player download boycott to get a glimpse of your sweet, sweet intro.

I was a little skeptical about this show even though I am a fan of JJ Abrams' series. My turning point was to know that you worked on the project. Watched it last night and was awed to see that my "teachers" work was prime time. Not to mention the show was awesome.

Thanks for opening my eyes

Very cool intor Andrew. I hope it turns into some other nice jobs for you.

The show itself was great too. That's always a plus. I mean, if you had done the intro for "What's Happening: The Reunion", not as cool, even if the intro was awesome. :D

When they offer you the opportunity to do a new intro for Spongebob, you'll know you've made it!

This is so cool! I cant believe people guessed you were working on this! You left no hints all you said was that you were walking on a show and you couldn't say much about it! Then loads of people just guessed Fringe! I can see why you were pretty jazzed to do the titles on this, its a huge project!

Cant wait for the Meteorite film its about 16:50 in England so i guess it will be on the site later tonight for me! i'm not sure the exact time differemce between America and the UK!

So I have a question for you Andrew.
JJ Abrams did a Ted Talk awhile back and he expressed his love for the ability to VFX cheap and creatively. I knew right then that he used After Effects... But then he showed some random work by people. One of the pieces he showed was a jeep going down a run way with a plane landing behind it then breaking off its forward landing gear and sliding on the jeep.

Was that you? Because the guys in the jeep looked a little bit like some of the people you might use.

I saw the opening title, and said to myself "that looks like Kramer's work."
Then I read your blog.
Looks like JJ Abrams inserted a lot of your 'look' throughout his show. Nice touch, having the locator supers as 3D drive-through title.
Another Kramer 'look.'

I love how it is kind of like X-Files on crack...or LSD better yet. I hope everything is somehow tied together is a sensical fashion. If it's anything like LOST I'm sure it will.

Anyways, congrats again for getting your work on the front end of an awesome network show. It makes your little minions happy.

For us in the UK, Sky1 have picked up the rights for Fringe and it will be airing in the Autumn =))

'Gratz AK! Always wondered why someone as talented as you had never really done a gig like this before =)

Looking forward to the new shorts and tutorials.

Wow, Is this your first BIG break. Thats so inspiring. Hey, can you ask JJ how LOST ends. He said he wont tell, but threaten that you will quit. You are the only way!! lol I cant wait to see the pilot tonight.

Wow... working with J.J. Abrams... I'm jealous. Huge fan of his. And of yours AK. I'll be doubly sure to catch Fringe's pilot now. Now I'll be walking away from it with a dozen unanswered after effects questions in addition to the unanswered J.J. Abrams' standard plot questions.

"It’s funny because the intro has not been published or aired yet, but some people have guessed I was somehow involved"

That's totally true since i saw the commercials, i just KNEW
Andrew was somehow working on it.

maybe it's because of his awesome work

Hey Andrew,
nice thing this is… looking forward to see the show since i heard of it.

By the way… I am from Europe. Everyone who wants to see it… I use Hotspot Shield. This is one way to watch the “US only Stuff” (As a Browser-plug-in for Firefox) also in Europe. (Hope I am allowed to tell.) Keep up all the cool stuff.

As a long time fan of JJ, I gotta say that's pretty awesome.

Next time you talk to him, let him now that he needs to learn to make better endings!

Congrats on getting the job. I expect to see a lot more great things from you!

I have a feeling Andrew works on a lot more big projects than we know about. Remember, he runs a VFX production company aside from Video Copilot. Which makes his contributions even more incredible. He started VCP because he wanted to help others achieve great things with AFX. Kudos Mr, Kramer!

BRAVO andrew bravo. i think it is fantastic that you worked on this project. just shows that you are working on big projects.

andrew can i tell you something? a guy like you would be needed in the hollywood CGI industry. like a james cameron type of guy. cameron was always the guy who pushed everything to the limit. he always uses something new and groundbreaking. AVATAR will use new technology. i like your way of thinking and solving problems. a guy like you would do inredible things on big budget movies.

i am expecting tomorrow 2 VFX shots that will push boujou and AE to the limit. i htink you already pushing everything in AE to the limit.

Andrew, could you link us to some other full projects that you've completed? I've personally only ever seen what you've done on here, it'd be cool to see some full motion graphics from you (other than the protions for your products you've done here.
