After Effects New York

Just a reminder, I’ll be presenting at the upcoming After Effects New York meeting Thursday, March 26. It’s a free meeting and there are sure to be a few good tips and prizes… not sure about the tips though :)

This is a picture from last years trip and this time I’m going to catch that guy and find out who he really is!

My After Effects World Conference Visit
I’m excited to tell you that I had a blast at this years After Effects World conference and met a lot of great people. I was also given an opportunity to do a keynote presentation which is much different than sitting behind a computer and demonstrating software. I talked about what motivates me, personal challenges […]
Announcing Element 3D V2!
It has been a little over 2 years since the release of Element 3D V1 and I still remember it quite vividly. I recall staying up all night before the launch, trying to get everything done. I was nervous and excited.  My son Josh had just been born a week earlier and I was working from home at the time. […]
Element 3D V2 Official Release Date!
Element 3D V2 will be available in 2 weeks on Dec 2! Yeah! I know I’m 2 days past my November goal but we are really happy with the progress and we needed the extra time to get everything dialed in! This update is insane! What can I say, we like to push the limits of technology and features, but […]

Dang, might not make it. Do you speak at AENY yearly? I saw you there last year...in fact, I sat right behind you but it took me a while to realize it was you 'cuz I never saw your face, only heard your voice on the tutorials.

Hey everyone,

Regarding bringing a camera to the meeting we cannot have non approved cameras since this is a public school in NYC.
I will speak with Andrew about what he would like to do about recording the meeting similar to how I put Lloyd Alvarez preso on our Vimeo page.
It is not an easy task to run the meeting on time and set up and strike for records as well.If recording can happen I will make sure it goes up on the AENY Vimeo page for everyone to see.
ALSO AENY IS FREE NO COST TO ANYONE AT ALL NO FEES , its all about the community of users we do not make a profit of anyone or anything.

Thanks,
Jim

Hey Andrew! You need to get yourself a Video Copilot APP on iTunes so we can keep up with your updates and blogs on da go! Best :)

@ftragg - let him know that it's not only free, but you have a chance at amazing door prizes, and a great opportunity to network with some of the folks working in the industry you love. He'll come around!

He can look at the network of amazing AE user groups, and see that the goal is to spread knowledge, and AENY is run by some of the best and brightest.

I wish I could go. :(

Yeah, my dad's being all skeptical, because he thinks they're going to hit us with a membership fee at the door. Plus, I only started using AE in September of last year (my school got the Adobe CS3 suite), so he's wondering if I could actually get something out of it.
I don't think he understands that this website's tutorials facilitate the increase of AE knowledge exponentially. At least I tried to explain it to him...

I got chosen to goto New York a couple of weeks ago. I was suppose to goto a studio in the Hamptons, but ended up going to Fox News Studios in New York and got to be on the Strategy Room. I'm only 14 and I got chosen because of my video editing and I learned all I know about after effects from Andrew. Thanks. Have fun in New York.

Yes we do have windows, all sorts of windows... 95, 98, ME, 2000, XP, Vista windows 7 and vista's sibling Microsoft Windows Sista...but we all prefer MAC

South Africa is pretty much like New York, only that our superheroes dont have secret identities... :-)

Events like that should be streamed live over the internet or be made available as streaming video afterwards.
I'm sure you'll meet some loyal followers like me. Who knows maybe a cute female stalker, like the one I have...oh that reminds me *opening the window and yelling* "Hey you, get off the porch right now or I'm calling the cops again"...
Ok back.. yeah I don't mind her standing infront of the house but the porch is private property... oh it's starting to rain, maybe I should let her in..hmm.. ok I will.

Big trouble caused by the german tv-broadcaster ProSieben.

In Terms of the Premiere of FRINGE (the reason why i am posting this is andrew did the opening titles, or don't he?)
ProSieben faked a News-Break reporting of a enormous fast growing baby, showing some amateur recordings of the birth.
