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.

It was my first time going to one of these meetings, so I was a tad confused when this happened...And I agree with the two other people about the guy at the bottom left. It's hilarious.

April 4th, 2009 @ 2:53 pm
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.
April 4th, 2009 @ 3:03 pm

Huy on the bottom left:

"Oh no! Its andrew!! Quick! how do i look?!"

Haha! Looked like a ton of fun
April 4th, 2009 @ 5:38 pm
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.

Hey Andrew...

That isn't something that you are cooking up to cover this REAL reaction which you got from the crowd right?? :D
April 4th, 2009 @ 10:48 pm
Lol indeed that guy left in the corner probably wouldn't dare to shout 'boo' to THE Andrew Kramer, he's just a big fan of yours!
And I can understand him :)
April 5th, 2009 @ 12:52 am
Hey, nice one! I know how it feels. I was playing guitar in front of 2000 people yesterday. (I had a great time though!)

Look forward to all the new tutorials and hopefully a super hero one! Thanks AK.

Juan Lascano:

Select the layer and hit "A". This will bring up the ANCHOR POINT properties. Adjust it to where you want it.
April 6th, 2009 @ 9:58 am
All I have to say is that guy on the bottom is awesome!
April 6th, 2009 @ 10:18 am
Wow! Aharon Rabinowitz was there?? Would've gone for sure had I known that!

Honestly, to have both he and AK in the same room talking AE... very cool!
