Wired with J.J. Abrams!

J.J. Abrams ‘took’ over Wired magazine as a guest editor this month and injected some of his inspiring philosophy and clever wit. It’s a fun read if you get a chance to check it out.

Now if you look hard enough, he even mentions Video Copilot as something he wishes was around when he was younger. Read that part. Needless to say, it was pretty freaking cool to see this in a magazine. Definitely put a big smile on my face.

What’s more awesome, was actually working with him on the Main Credits for the new Star Trek movie! It was an honor to collaborate with J.J. again and I can’t wait to see the movie on the big screen! I hope you guys will be there too.

Hey man I saw that you made the fringe intro. Is there any way that I could get some instructions on how to do it. That intro is my favorite and I have been trying to figure out how it was done.
April 22nd, 2009 @ 4:21 pm
oh well done. thats one thing I'm going to be looking forward to watching is the opening title of star trek. Then I'll leave...nah just joking. but AWESOME.
April 22nd, 2009 @ 4:22 pm
Hi Andrew,

so I had to read you made the Title-Animation for Star Trak and Fringe (the series just started down here on TV).

I would be very interested seeing what else you are doing for professional movies and stuff.
I understand if you don't wanna make any advertise for yourself or make it a big thing, but I'm just interested.

Regards,
Lucas
April 22nd, 2009 @ 4:23 pm
Congrats Andrew! That is a HUGE accomplishment! I can't wait to see the movie.
Anthony Miller
April 22nd, 2009 @ 4:24 pm
That's so funny. I remember seeing the opening titles to "Fringe" and thinking "Wow, whoever did that sequence is freaking talented and unreal." I had no idea it was the guy practically in my backyard. Kudos to you, Andrew. You never cease to amaze me.

Now I'm REALLY looking forward to Star Trek!

Cheers,

DUDE!!! STAR TREK!!! So now I can brag that the person who tough me a lot of AE, made the Sart Trek Intro.. beside been one of the best teachers ever!! :D
Thanks Andrew and congrats on your huge success... hope you don't forget about the working class when you're famous. :D
April 22nd, 2009 @ 4:49 pm

Wow. I believe that's it. From now on, you will really earn a packet with your great skills. the major film studios will brawl over you. hope you'll still find time to provide your fans with wicked tutorials and other hot stuff!

To be honest I'm not suprised you worked on star trek. JJ seems the type of person who knows quality when he sees it and im sure we can see you working on more jj stuff, and hopefully moving on to more. You are a genuine inspiration to all of us who take film making in any of its aspects seriously. Thankyou

April 23rd, 2009 @ 1:48 am
Yeah Andrew, we are all very proud of you and now we can go around saying stuff like "The guy who did the opening titles for Fringe and Star Trek etc is actually my AE and 3DMax tutor" people might not believe us but hey we know we not lying... We are all really proud of you dude and the rest of the team .... and Im glad I came across Video Copilot when I did... you guys rock the boat!

Video Copilot Forever!

April 23rd, 2009 @ 2:09 am
Oh My god, I actually said to my girlfriend when we first saw the trailer "That looks just like something that tutorial guy i watch on the internet would make" she suitably responded "oh thats nice....", but seriously, you seem to be able to leave a subtle "kramer stamp" on your work, can't quite put my finger on it, but theres defiantly "kramerish" to the work you produce. *High five* and much love!

April 23rd, 2009 @ 2:36 am
Awesome Mr Kramer. I would have gladly killed Sam to get a shot at working on the Star Trek project. Now when I see the movie I will be looking for your genius at work. Congrats
April 23rd, 2009 @ 2:58 am
YOU DID IT! :)

Question: At which format did you work for the titles? 4k? 2k? How did you manage the huge amount of data in AE? I have always to deal with memory issues when working with such dimensions.

Great thing, now M. CA is my personal place of pilgrimage :D
Energized
April 23rd, 2009 @ 3:04 am
I agree with Jimmy, we have all watched and learnt and re-watched your work, when I saw the trailer I turned to my mate and said "I recognise those lens flares!!" Honestly I think your stuff is always fresh and exciting, 'cos you give it what Stu Maschwitz calls the "Kiss of Love"...I think thats what he calls it anyhows... the pure magic!
Jimmy
April 23rd, 2009 @ 3:28 am

Humility is a fabulous trait to posess...and you, Andrew, have it in the utmost! Your talents in the visual and training arenas are to be greatly commended and I encourage you to keep it up. I watch every tutorial you make, purchase your stuff, and read all of your posts because they are GOOD! But what astounds me, every time it occurs, is when someone gives you a shout-out on a grand stage like "Wired," you react in such a humble way like, "it was pretty freaking cool..." as if you had never been recognized in this way before. You do what you love, you make others love it, and that is why I will keep supporting you! Thanks for being real, and thanks for EVERYTHING you offer to the world. And pass that onto your offspring, too!

April 23rd, 2009 @ 7:27 am
Can't wait to see it myself. But they got Cap. Kirk all wrong. Dispite what they show in the trailers, he can't drive stick. If you watch the original episode "A Piece Of The Action" Kirk with Spock try to drive a car to the "Boss's" house and have a very hard time because it is a stick.

Anyway, Looking forward to the main credits. You should use that as a tutorial. Where you using 3D or AE? Or a mix of both? ;)
April 23rd, 2009 @ 7:33 am
I had to read that bit in Wired a few times before I believed it! I'm so happy for you and I don't even know you, but it must have been quite the thrill. I'll be thinking of VCP on May 7th!!! Just think, you're a part of Trek history now!!!!!!!
April 23rd, 2009 @ 7:45 am
Gratulations there, that's really cool!
I'm excited to seeing J.J. Abrams' and your work on the big screen! :)

Very nice. This could be your way in into the big ones. Same here, but with stunts then. It was hard to get into the big movie business but once you're in, you're really in. And J.J. ain't a small one. We got a chance by one of the biggest movie directors here in Belgium (even tho it's a small country :p) and since then we have a lot of work. We never made any publicity and we're in the movie business now for about 10 years. If you do your job well, their mouths do the rest. Congrats man. The future looks very bright for you.

JJ Abrams must be the most awesome client ever.

Whatever happens its awesome to see you've managed to get this far! You've made the VC community proud! :D

April 23rd, 2009 @ 3:41 pm
I was wondering.. I see those 3d floating titles every time that the change to a new setting. It looks quite kramer-esque, wondering if you did those too.
April 23rd, 2009 @ 4:45 pm
Congrats!!! Looking forward to seeing the movie and I bet the title animations steal the show :) Might there be a tutorial on the project in the works?

Well done! Looking forward to seeing those titles. Did you get a credit at the end also? If not, you should at least negotiate for a "The producers would like to thank Sam Loya for allowing Andrew Kramer to disintegrate him, freeze him, run him over, etc."

April 24th, 2009 @ 11:36 pm
WOAH! it's like your awesomeness and famousness was indigenous to us, and then here you are apart of the real world, off the computer, making title animations for MAD famous things and people
April 25th, 2009 @ 1:12 am
and now since our captain has made the titles the movie is going to be richer by at least the average 600,000 vcp fans. (am I right?)

I LOVE THIS SITE! God Bless you and your talents.
April 25th, 2009 @ 10:36 pm
hey andrew,

long time viewer, first time poster. just wanted to say thanks for all the tutorials and awesome tips. this is definitely the most helpful website i have ever come across since i've gained an interest in video production and visual effects.

i was at a cincinnati reds game last night, and i thought you would like to know that the video that plays on the brand new, ten million dollar, HD, ginormatron that introduces some of the hometown players makes great use of the futuristic HUD tutorial. i looked up at the sixty foot screen and said, 'hey, i know how to do that!'

thanks again,
dan
April 25th, 2009 @ 11:28 pm
As a trekker.. I just can't wait for this movie. Now I have other reason for that: I'll see Kramer's good work :)

Andrew,

Got to see the movie last night at the Paris premiere.

Can't say that I did not see some AK touch in the credits and when reading your blog this morning I was like 'I knew there was something about it!".

Anyway I definitely can feel the vibe in this new generation of artists that you and Abrams are part of.

And I can't hope for anything but more projects like this one in which truly amazing talented people are given a chance to collaborate together to bring us amazing movies to the big screen.

Congrats again and let's bring this new AE/smart eye director generation to make more movies like this one!

Hey all!
I just watched Star Trek on screening for journalists here in Croatia. It was awesome.I won't give any spoilers, I'll just say that it was funny and you grow to love the characters quickly. And yes the end titles scream Andrew Cramer. We who know him and his style will immediately recognize his work.
Bravo Andrew!

Hey man!
I'm from Brazil and I have been watching your tutorials for a while. I just started to "play" with After Effects, and everything I know is thank to you.
But that was pretty amazing! I really love to watch series and I had no idea that you were in Fringe!
Since I started to watch it I've been wondering how to do those 3D titles who appear on every episodes, in different places.
I don't know if you made those but I was hopping you can tell us how =)
Congratulations, man!
Thanks for everything!
May 1st, 2009 @ 7:11 pm
that is fantastic to hear you worked on star trek. you deserve it mate. my prayers for your full success. with out you and copilot i for one would have never touched or know how to open after effects. i dont know much on after effects but what ever i have learnt was all because of you. you have given me a chance to learn something. thank you very very much. all the best

I was lucky enough to see an early screening of Star Trek on Saturday. All I have to say is WOW... I was blown away. As a trek nerd I have to say this is what the series needed. Congratulations Andrew on the awesome credits! It really had your name all over it (did you use sure target???).

I can't wait to pay next week to see it again when it comes out!

Dude, this is awesome! Movies are becoming more independent now days and streaming out into more public venues for real talent. To actually be able to interact with someone who has worked on big budget film making is exciting to me. I am really excited to see this film as a film lover and a loyal fan.
May 7th, 2009 @ 8:51 pm
Just saw the movie... all I can say is awesome! Saw your name in the credits Andrew, great work.

May 7th, 2009 @ 10:15 pm
OMG!!! This movie was AMAZING, and a really cool thing happened too. I read this blog post a day or two ago, and got kinda excited to see what you had done for the movie, so on the way into the theater I told my buddy how you had worked on the credits. So, anyways, when we saw them (they were insane, by the way) he looked at me and was like, "Holy sh**! These ARE sweet! that guy (Andrew Kramer) is pretty good!" and I of course replied, "Yup, he's pretty much my hero!" Props dude!

PS - Did you help with any of the special effects on the film? Just curious because I was watching them a lot closer since I just recently started taking your tutorials and some of the special effects reminded me of them.

Congrats on the mention.

I just got back from watching Star Trek, and your work was definitely recognisable - absolutely awesome work. I think I recognised parts from atleast a dozen of your tutorials and presets. I am inspired to create something like that for myself now.

Must go and re-watch all the tutorials again now.

Well done, and keep up the great work.

You deserve it mate. Thanks to your tutorials, I have learned to use AE. Upuntil I saw madcow tutorials and video copilot, I knew nothing! Thanks to you and your sharing of knowledge I have a new skill. I will always credit all my work with thanks to you.

Thank you and all the best.
May 8th, 2009 @ 5:35 pm
I was at the Premiere of Star Trek here in Norway. And I could almost without even knowing you were involved here, see that them credits were somewhat by you. Looked so great, a perfect fit for credits.

And about the movie. I am not really a fan of Star Trek. People with wrinkles at the size of watermelons in the face are apparently aliens... Lame, but this was something else. This movie was so good, I was so surprised with how good it all looked compared with the old Star Trek. This stuff was amazing. you were lucky with what movie you got to make the credits too.

Congrats again,
-Ryko

Just watched Star Trek today! What an excellent movie. I could defiantly tell by the style of the Titles that they were yours. And surly I had to stay through all the credits to make sure our boy andrews name was listed. it feels pretty awesome to know that they guy that gives us free tutorials frequently is featured in a big time movie.


Thanks, Andrew.
Excellent work.

Good job with the titles! I had to sit in the end of the credits just to see your name :)
May 9th, 2009 @ 7:46 am
I do believe that the main credits were the coolest shots in the whole movie. I think they went a little over board with trying to simulate a real camera with their graphic shots. The amount of lens flares along with camera shake made me dizzy.

Andrew: Saw Star Trek with a bunch of my friends today. The movie is awesome. For those who haven't seen it I won't give any clues, but it's worth going to see.

Question 1: Did you design or work with a team on the title, or only the credits at the end. The end credits where cool 3D effects with a Video Copilot flare.

Question 2: Were the effects done in AE, or some steroid program for film?

Question 3: Were you or Video Copilot mentioned in the end credits. (Sorry the guys I was with were about to have a fit to leave, and I did get to hang around and see all the credits)

You gotta be mighty proud to be part of the Star Trek film!

Keep the ideas coming my friend!!

I just saw Star Trek tonight. THAT was THE MOST INCREDIBLE MOVIE EXPERIENCE I have ever had!! And I'm not even a trekkie! Seriously, I'm so glad I live in a day and age where humans can make movies with that kind of calibre and imagination.

You are extremely fortunate to have been a part of that beast :D

Fantastic stuff!

May 10th, 2009 @ 2:43 pm
I just saw the Star Trek movie yesterday in IMAX and I was wondering why the look and feel of the title sequence felt so familiar. Now I come on here to your blog to discover that I had not seen that you had been working on the title for it. Great Job!

Although I did have a friend who is in the projection industry comment to me today that the title was too large and not far enough back today, but I loved it, as I do your tutorials.

May 10th, 2009 @ 4:32 pm
the movie was great !!
and I couldn't wait to see how you did the titles
which were awesome of course !!
did you partake in the special effect of Vulcan imploding?
that was great as well

I am a big stickler for intros and titles
I love the way Guy Ricthie movies start up

KEEP SHINING VC !!!

Long time fan of your website, first time poster. Excellent work on the titles. It was fun to see it, and at least feel a little that you knew the man that had a hand in creating them.

Thanks so much for sharing your expertise with us. I have learned so much in the few short months that I have been visiting. You are a credit to your profession, and a highly prized asset to us.

Thanks again,

Chris

May 11th, 2009 @ 3:17 am
I just watch the movie the other day.. and i didn't know that you were the one who made the credits.. at first I thought.. This looks like one of the tutorials at videocopilot.net because I saw the resemblance of the sure target preset and the motion blur of the stars as the camera moves into one target to the next, I was thinking for a sec at that time, nah maybe some dude who made this watched the tutorials of andrew kramer and now I saw this.. effin cool mehn! Congratulations to you. :)
May 11th, 2009 @ 4:29 am

I confess that I did not know that the main title was made for you. But he drew much my attention ... Congratulations Andrew! you are great!

The credits were great indeed. It looked like you were using a sure target type of movement. Wooshing around in space, from planet to the next. Great stuff.
A funny thing i noticed also about the Bad Robot logo. Fractal noise was used in the background.

Just saw the show. It's easy to say now but I'm pretty sure I would have pegged the closing credits as your work without you letting us in on the secret. It was classic AK to the max and that means really good work.

The transition between individual credits appeared to be our old friend SureTarget.

Saw the movie Yesterday on the Imax! Great Movie! And Loved the Main Credits, Andrew! Saw your name and the end credits! Yahoo!!
Hope one day my name is on the big screen as well.

Thanx for al you inspering work!

Star Trek the movie was pretty good. But the icing on the cake was watching the credits, recognizing the handy work of a one talented Andrew Kramer, then reading your name. All your hard work has paid off big time! You continue to inspire and motivate AE users around the world with your tutorials and products.

Thank you

Watched the best movie of the summer tonight. I loved the entire film including the titles! I watched intently for your name Andrew and found it near the end. Props for an excellent run of creative credits which gave credit to amazing actors and directors - through your design work! I was cheering for you with my buddies in a nerdy trekky/ video copilot sort of way.

Hey Dude!
I went to see this movie last night and was utterly gobsmacked at your awesome credit sequence! You must be so stoked and proud! A big high five for an amazing piece of work!
A big Fan! (not the type with blades)

Andrew Kramer, god of all things after effects. Those credits were epic, and thanks to you and this site I know how to make my own like them. Needless to say, I stuck around after the movie to see your name in the scrolling credits (LOL).

I got to agree with everyone just saw the Film....great! I was so happy to see that Mr. Abrams did such an amazing job at bringing new life back into the film. And that it was not a case of been there and done that.

Andrew great job with the titles, you must have been blown away yourself to see that your work has now been viewed by millions all over the world on huge screens...great work!

Everyone if you've the money to go - go and see for yourselves. Keep up the great work Andrew and everyone at VC. God bless you guys

You really need to consider putting out a DVD on making some of those things you did during the titles.

Hey Andrew,
Just got done watching Star Trek.. I stayed all the way thru the credits just to catch your name as main title designer.. Nice going man. I made my company purchase all your Design DVDs. And have been using them for over a year now. You've forced me to learn expressions and Ive been kicking and screaming all the way but its been a great ride thanks for all you do and the inspirations and ideas you've supplied me with.

I seriously saw Star Trek just to see the credits. I was surprised though, because it was an awesome movie! The credits were awesome, did you use Sure Target or something like it? Thanks again for everything, I'm glad things seem to going well for you

Hi Andrew,
saw Star Trek yesterday and loved the titles. I watched the rolling titles and waited for your name. When it arrived I was very proud to know your site and your tutorials. Getting to learn something from someone who worked on Star Trek. Wow! Congratualations!

I am honestly very very jealous. Meeting JJ would make my year. And knowing you did the FRINGE intro, OH MY DAMN! was my first reaction.

I loved the credit in this movie!
I've been trying to figure a way in After Effects to do a similar one to both the main title and also to the titles in the trailer. Any suggestions from the major motion picture title creator? :)

btw. THATS JUST EPIC
