Back to the Action…

We have some pretty intense updates coming soon, as we gear up for Action Essentials 2. Since this new DVD is easily our most impressive collection to date, we are also launching the Video Blog as well as a significant site-design upgrade, plus a fun new tutorial. Needless to say we have been working over-time. (Might explain the seemingly slow blog updates, but don’t worry it’s non-stop over here.)

I thought it would be interesting to share some background on the first Action Movie Essentials and where it came from. When I was 9 or so I loved making home-made action films and this continued through to High School where digital film-making was just coming around with the release of Final Cut Pro. It was the idea of making my short-films better that took me into After Effects.

Shortly after starting Video Copilot, I created the first Action Movie Essentials which came out in June of 2006. I had a massive concept in-mind, but the equipment, the technology and frankly the budget was not enough to completely shape my vision. If I remember correctly, I was filming gun fire in the desert just a few weeks earlier on the day before getting married. My wife called to remind me to pick up my tuxedo… I was already wearing it

Although we created a useful tool for many, the need for even more action stock footage was strong. So here we are, precisely 3 years later…

Edit: Mid 2005, was when Video Copilot started.

Thanks for the background info. Looking forward to the new release. Do you have a clue to the price? I want to start putting some $ away for this and I want to know the amount needed.
June 17th, 2009 @ 6:32 am
It's always nice to hear where the big names got started. We're all glad to have you following your dreams, Andrew.

I started at 14 years old using Windows Moviemaker... Got After Effects after a good friend told me that was what he used. He then told me about VideoCopilot... Never been the same since. :-)

Great to hear the story Andrew....I found After effects in a similar manner, just wanted to do some animation on a short Documetary i was doing for Channel Four Docs in Scotland... a year and a half later somehow I'm doing motion Graphics in London... seriously could not have got this far without the likes of you mate.
Cant wait for the new pack... lets all keep going forward!!

Of course, it wouldn't really be Action Essentials unless the flying raccoon "blows up".

Just don't forget to add the disclaimer at the end that says "No animals were harmed in the making of this film"

and a tux.... in the desert???

Haha...short biography of Action Movie Essentials. I insist though, that it would be really awesome if you could share some of your logistic strategies to film some of those things, like I personally get very confused in some elements not knowing if they were VG renders or actual REAL stuff...anyways, glad to hear the news!

I am 15 years old and I'm from Serbia. I started with film/video production, video editing and everything in that :) about 3 years ago. On VideoCopilot I've learned a lot of that about AfterEffects and lot of other things.... Now, i have to start high school, but i don;t know which kind of school is best for this industry :S. I don;t know, for 3-4 years, maybe i will start to love Biology :D. hehe...
Andrew, which school have you "finished" ?

Can't wait for the new secret tutorial comming soon. I hope its on making a fight scene, as last time i made one, my little brother (by accident) smaked me round the face when a "fake" punch got too close.

My jaw hurt.

But iam fine now.

Thanks.
(P.S. I look forward to the new product!)

Wow... you really know how to get people excited!
I'm looking forward to everything you just mentioned - the tutorial, the Action Essentials 2 DVD of course and definitely the Video Blog. I don't have any concrete idea yet of what this Video Blog will be like - but it better be good! :P
And I think we all agree that we're confident that it'll surpass our expectations. ;)
I'm not putting any pressure on you, am I?^^
Well, not as much as you put on yourself/yourselves - and that's exactly why you're the best and always will be the best as long as you keep up this attitude!

Rock on! =)

Andrew,

What's really cool is how great your site and products have gotten since you started (not that they were bad to start with). I can't even imagine what you'll come up with 3 years from now.

June 17th, 2009 @ 10:07 am
I'm sure I'm not the first to say this but you should post those movies you made as a kid. It would be a blast to see how far you've come.

Consider this bought and highly anticipated by me.

June 17th, 2009 @ 10:14 am
Oh thats really nice to hear about you Andrew. Your hardwork has given VCP such a brilliant name for AE.

You have helped millions of people like me who always wanted to learn something serious about the After Effects.

I am proud to say today, that I have learnt everything about After Effects by the one & only great man... Andrew Kramer. (THANKS A MILLION)

Thanks to Andrew & his awesome Team who has always kept me so much updated about all the new AE STUFFS & IDEAS.

And BTW, needless to say, I am also supporting videocopilot.net since from the beginning it started in Mid 2005 :) and I still remember the 1st Tutorial.
IT WAS JUST AWESOME!!!!!

Recently, I have also started something like you & working hard just like you to succeed one day just like you Andrew.

You are my INSPIRATION... Thanks once again...

I Love you ANDREW | and I love the Whole VCP Team...

Rock as always...

Warm Regards

Last time I was in the desert I had to hand 80 grand to this guy who had my friend, but then it turned out it wasn't my friend. The guy had the same name as my friend, but it wasn't him. Luckily we found my friend later on, on the roof of the casino we were staying at.

Oh wait.

That was "The Hangover".

I live in Toronto. We don't have a desert. Lots of gunfire, but no desert.

Whatever that means. o_O
June 17th, 2009 @ 12:10 pm
Hold on Andrew, this is nice to hear and all. But you were 9 when you first started making your own films?

But back then weren't video cameras SUPER expensive, wouldn't only adults use them?

Also, what did you edit on back then? NLEs are fairly new so I'm wondering how could you edit your movies.

Please reply if you can.

i was wondering about the low number of blog posts lately, but that explains it and its a good reason too! :D

anyways, yeah, action essentials was good, i found it a little lacking though, now i see why. i am so glad that you are releasing action essentials 2, it looks like you have thought of everything for it, i doubt it will be lacking in any area! cant wait!!!
June 17th, 2009 @ 12:24 pm
for 4 years, i used after effects to create "really cool titles" for my client's videos. i was dying for after effects info. film school was a laugh. all they showed us how to do is add a drop shadow and a bevel. whoopee. suddenly, around the beginning of summer 2006, i found 3 really exciting tutorials that blew my mind. my high tech "titler" could replace the sky?!?! by the end of fall, my friends were calling me "the postman" because there were so many things i could fix in post (with proper planning of course.) all hail lord kramer!

C'mon sonicballer8888, Andrew is probably a few years older than me, but still. When I was that age I was using my parents crappy old 8mm camera. There was no editing, your "editing" was done by the order you shot your shots in. You didn't do that when you were a kid?
June 17th, 2009 @ 3:27 pm
Awesome!!! I can't wait to see what AEHD2 looks like!!!

I follow you since early 2006, with the first page that was so heavy for the browsers and a little bit empty, with errors etc. the time it's fast an your Videocopilot was growing up so fast too.
at the first your tutorials were emerging slowly and are now on average weekly.
The page was quite austere but now it's full of content
At first, I was visiting it once a month or every two months
Now i'm visiting it daily, once or twice or more times.
those I met through a creativecow's podcast that was I found it on I-tunes store.

Do you remember when your princess was born? and the pic of X-mas with her little red dress?

Now you have a incredible big family, your wife, your dougther, all the Videocopilot crew and all the Videocopilot comunity. ups I'm forgetting something. Of course, Sam Loya too. ;)
I am proud to belong to this community.

The only thing that has been constant it's always overcome your marks. Has always gone beyond.

So I have no doubt this time is the same with your amazing stuff, take your time, we are here waiting for it $$$ (I broke my little pig).

Video Copilot Forever Young... Cheers!!!

We need one more tutorial please!
