Hey Amigo

A Very Merry X-Mass and a Happy New Year to you and your family.

I'm kicking it this and the next year in a relaxed way at the beautiful tropical island of Koh Samui in Thailand, mainly because of you, as I got a great job here thanks to the great stuff you teach.

May All Good Vibes be with you in future.

Happy Holidays! Looking forward to further expanding my skill set under your tutelage Andrew! I vote that you take your After Effects Training Wizardry on a cross-country tour. I'm sure you would SELL OUT all of the venues! Some people may even follow you on the tour like "Dead Heads" and they could be called something like the "Cramer-ites" or something. Seriously though. Thanks for unselfishly sharing your knowledge and creating such awesome products. VideoCopilot has really motivated and captivated me.
December 29th, 2008 @ 6:35 am
Happy new year for all videocopiladicts!!!!!
2009 will be a great year for all of us...
Great ideas to discuss, great projects to share and coment, great new stuff... And of course new Andrew's jokes!!!!
That's Awesome!!!!!
My CPU is wet wet wet...

December 29th, 2008 @ 7:04 am
I can't wait Andrew. Everything I see on TV and movies now, I always compare them to what you do. You have set the bar in my mind, and I hold your skills in high regard. Have a great week Andrew.....I am getting my After Effects all warmed up and ready for the next tutorial...bring it on....
December 29th, 2008 @ 7:25 am

Hi Andrew I have a request and i guessing you'd know about this....

I am going to get a P.C built so the rendering wont take 8 hours for stupid things like the matrix text with particular and other things can you suggest what spec I should be going for ie motherboard and graphics card, ram and so on as I really dont want to get this wrong becuase thats what happend last time :-s this will be a dedicated P.C and price range would be about £800 I'm guessing $1600 in your neck of the woods.

Can you please help?

Many thanks
December 29th, 2008 @ 10:49 am
Successful relaxation to you Mr.Andrew Kramer

December 29th, 2008 @ 1:35 pm

Look forward to watching these amazing new tuts Andrew. :)
December 29th, 2008 @ 10:58 pm
Can't wait. Know that we all REALLY appreciate your tutorials and insights. Here's to a great New Year to all of us in the graphics industry. Happy Holidays everyone!
December 29th, 2008 @ 11:36 pm
Looking forward to the new tuts!

Is the leader for Storm Chasers (broadcasted on Discovery Channel) by any chance a VCP/AK production? I think I recognized the hand/skills of Andrew Kramer there. Maybe a nice idea to give the VCP community some hints in what TV productions (be it commercials or leaders for TV shows) you have been involved in.

Anyway, I must say that thanks to this website I started to watch TV in a different way.

Wishing the VCP team a superb 2009 and may there be lots more to learn from your outstanding tutorials.

greets from Bulgaria!
December 29th, 2008 @ 11:41 pm
Just wanted to say that after finally getting stuck into 'The Bullet' over the holidays, I have received a great introduction into 3D modeling and animation using Blender (I am a complete newbie to 3D - even to Adobe AF)

I have learnt much in a short time. Your tutorials are very informative and make learning much easier and a lot of fun. The three products I purchased on this site so far, have been well worth the investment. Look forward to buying more over time, especially after I digest the current material.

To all all other newbies who haven't tried Videocopilot DVD's yet: Do not to hold back!
December 30th, 2008 @ 1:42 am
Yes!!!!! We All Hope!!!

Great Tutorials are Coming Out This Week and Later!!!!
And your DVDs They're so COOOOOOOOOOOOOOL!!!
December 30th, 2008 @ 2:14 am
Actually Andrew,
I had a very bad holiday because of my brothers in Ghazza but I'm glad that your site is moving again.
