Launch Imminent

Still finalizing some details for the tutorial but it should be online before Wednesday. I”d also take this opportunity to let you know I’ll be in New York for AENY on March 26th 2009. Check out AENY.org for more info in the coming weeks. Should be tons of fun and I’d really love to meet some of you guys first hand. Girls too, don’t be shy

Aharon Rabinowitz is one of the guys heading up AENY along with Jim Geduldick and Dennis Radeke. You might check out Aharon’s new website at www.AllBetsAreOff.com he has links to all his AE tutorials including the stuff he’s doing for Red Giant TV.

While I’m plugging friends websites, an old friend of mine, Cal Johnson sent me a nice training DVD for Adobe Premiere Pro and you know how much I love free stuff. If any Television manufactures are reading, please email me.

Anyways, the DVD covers Premiere Pro 2.0 but virtually all the tips and tricks apply to CS3 and CS4. What’s cool about the DVD is that he covers the ‘why’ you do things, not just ‘how’. I’m sure many of you are well-versed in Premiere but if you are looking for a good Premiere training, this might be a good option. Cal, you can thank me later buddy Here’s his site.

One more plug for good measure, Eran Stern does some tutorials over at Creative Cow and he also has a DVD for AE found here.

All this plugging has got me tired, I think I’ll drink a cold refreshing Pepsi. Maybe Pepsi could sponsor me or something…

great!!!!v can't wait any longer.
Yeah Tutorials really help a lot. I myself always USE Premiere pro for our work and AE for additional motion graphics. Mr. Kramer, what's the main focus of the tutorials? So many tuts there and some of 'em are kinda same.

pair this with a decent blender model of an iron man suit, kind of like the step up from bullet, and that would be a sweet tutorial.

Just because of your post, me and my co-worker got our company to help sponcer us to head to NYC for the night! Can't wait to meet you and Aaron. We have a company van, so where to afterwords!?!?

Has anyone from Digital Media Artists LA (DMLA. Formerly MGLA, LOL) contacted you about speaking?
Hollywood's closer to the IE than New York. But not as cool I guess.

MUAH! Is that Dr. Horrible? Is this a Sing-Along Blog?

Awesome!

Hey, Winston, I'm another DMALA member... although they said at the CS4 meeting that the name would change again. haha

I just wish Trish and Chris would come back! They were great.

Anyway, it would be great to see Andrew at one of these meetings. I agree, Hollywood shouldn't be too far for him.

And please... Hollywood is way cooler than NY.
January 27th, 2009 @ 10:07 am
Have fun in NYC Andrew. I hope everyone bows in your presence, because you are a video God...;)...at least in my book you are.....plus, you have a great sense of humor. Most Gods I run across have lame senses of humor. Have fun at the event, and thanks for the links.
Winston
January 27th, 2009 @ 10:19 am
Just kidding Tim.

It seems L.A. gets screwed on all the cool mograph events for some reason. We have some of the biggest and best houses in the world here, not to mention Mr. Kramer, but all the events happen in New York.

I just sent a couple of e-mails to DMALA folks about approaching Andrew, but apparently the idea had not occured to them before. But they said they would approach him now. I really miss Trish and Chris as well.

Hope you would consider driving into town to speak at one of our meetings Andrew.

Ah common, we´re here because we are pepsi guys, don´t even try to send us over to coca cola... It´s the small difference in taste, that lets us bow down... There´s even a difference in your biggest laziness, compared to their style...
January 27th, 2009 @ 1:00 pm
Sam is starting to look like the guy from Cities of the Underworld on the History channel....cool....I like it... next we'll be seeing him fight off an entire army of duplicated and cyborged Sams.....I can't wait... (hint hint)...;)

I"m not a hater on anybody... BUT..... NOT FOR NOTHING BUT....
i love video copilot FOR REAL...and if any website is not up to videocopilot standards on how they teach you something...then why go there...its like going on stage after James Brown PINK FLOYD or KISS....DUDE YOU JUST CANT DO THAT...

VIDEO COPILOT IS DAMN THERE THE TRUTH...TO ME ITS LIKE A FREAKING MOVEMENT OF WHAT AND HOW ALL TUTORIALS SHOULD BE.

yes MASTER ANDREW can be here teaching us something boring or should I say just go about teaching us how to do something and not teaching us how to do it in a really cool and fun way like everyone else, but the truth is he dont AND I SWEAR EVERY MORNING WHEN I GET UP VCP IS THE THIRD WEBSITE I GO TO AND THE OTHER TWO IS JUST TO CHECK MY EMAIL...I'M ON THIS THING EVERY MORNING!!! and yes most times theres nothing new up...lol but still like a dog i'm a true loyal pet I still come and sometimes i visit VCP later on in the day three more times, my wife thinks i come here more then i come to the bed room with her...NOW THATS REAL TALK FOR YOU GUYS...so what I'm saying is this...other websites is hard to go to cause the way they teach is boring and what they giving you is just not enough to leave me inspired...so what you gave me the no how to cook a cake...but VCP teaches us how to present it and make the cake sweet....

I LOVE VIDEO COPILOT...ITS THE BEST THING FOR REAL SINCE SLICED BREAD...YOU WANT TO QUESTION THAT...GO TO YOUTUBE AND LOOK AT HOW MANY PEOPLE ON THERE THANK MASTER ANDREW...NO ONE DOES IT LIKE VCP AND NO ONE CAN...

THEY GOING TO TRY AND CHARGE YOU MONEY FOR IT OR THEY NOT GOING TO SHOW YOU HOW TO DO THE "CHARMED" "SMALLVILLE", OR "HERO" EFFECTS FOR FREE AND FOR THE LOVE TO GIVE BACK.

VIDEOCOPILOT ANDREW, SAM AND EVERY ONE OVER THERE IN HIS CAMP IS THE FREAKING TRUTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SO WHY EVEN LOOK AT HOT DOGS WHEN WE GETTING STEAK...
ALL THE TIME!!!!
Tim
January 27th, 2009 @ 7:23 pm
Come on Andrew! All of us LA Mograph geeks want to meet you at DMALA. Video Copilot is actually a sponsor of DMALA, so I think it required! haha

Just think, you can answer our lame questions in person rather than online. Doesn't that sound like fun?
Tim
January 27th, 2009 @ 8:24 pm

January 28th, 2009 @ 12:02 am
