The truth about AENY…

Here is what the crowd really looked like at AENY! Actually, in the beginning of the meeting I asked everyone to “boo” the stage so that I wouldn’t feel so nervous. It didn’t help :)

Check out some pics from the meeting. Thanks to Jim for getting these online for us and the anonymous photog.

PS, In case it wasn’t clear, I set this scene up as a joke for the blog. Not only did I think it was funny but I thought it was great that everyone there went along with it.

You're a good sport man. You told us to pose with our thumbs down but we went a few steps further. Cursing you and shaming you for leaving Sam back in Cali and for making him cry when he ran away from home in tutorial #57. You looked a little surprised that we would rough you up a bit - east coast style. All in good fun though. That's me and my son in picture number 3 over at the flicker page. It was a tremendous amount of fun. You were shaking hands and kissing babies and snapping photos and signing autographs. AWESOME community of VXF professionals and folks who just have a passion for mixing it up with After Effects and all the rest. Hats off to all you guys. Carry on Captain.

lol ah man that sounds like it was so much fun! but after then all booing you, you should have pulled out an airsoft gun and started unloading on them. That'll teach them to boo you.
