Back Open :) Thanks Everyone!

So we decided to move in the new place early and everything went smooth. Still have to unload some boxes but it already feels comfortable. We are back up and running! I’ll be sure to post some pics for anyone interested. Just need to take a nap first!

PS: I hope everyone is recovering from their minor “heart-attacks”, I know the last headline was a bit cruel, but you know me

September 17th, 2009 @ 6:29 pm
Sweet! I had a little more than a minor heart attack, but its OK! I forgive you.

September 17th, 2009 @ 6:30 pm
Have to say I was a little concerned I missed some big news last night but I'm glad to see it's a new shiny studio.

Congratulations on the new space. Again I've been here since 2005 and you have come a long way. Does your new space have a cove on the green screen and an extra soda for me when I visit? I promise I'll pick up a copy of something while I visit. (Pics Please)
September 17th, 2009 @ 6:30 pm
Haha, awesome!

Do you like it better than your old one?
September 17th, 2009 @ 6:32 pm

Congrats man, can't wait to see the pics.

Seriously though, I sit in front of a computer for about 15 hours a day and my diet is shockingly bad. Scares like that are no laughing matter!!

September 17th, 2009 @ 7:53 pm
I did raise an eyebrow with the last post but figured it was a joke.
September 17th, 2009 @ 8:07 pm
Congrats on the successful move.

Good to know it goes well for some people.

Usually a horror story for me :)
September 17th, 2009 @ 8:15 pm
...congrats on your new crib Andrew & co., no more over bunkbeds. ; )
September 17th, 2009 @ 8:18 pm
This is great, that means your expanding and doing more and more work. Now you can have more people working with you and you can take more projects at the same time. I have been doing the same and believe me is the best change I have ever made, I would like to see when you finish with the place, put some photos for the community so they can get inspired by that and make them strong of what their doing and tell that they can make it to. Looking forward to see those photos, I will be posting some soon! take care and be you like always.
September 17th, 2009 @ 8:31 pm
I love this Video Copilot.
I visit this wedsite like three times a day. Still questioning myself why, but i'll question that later.
September 17th, 2009 @ 8:32 pm
A bit cruel is an understatement.. I needed to change my diaper!
September 17th, 2009 @ 8:34 pm
Sorry for the comment above, it sounds like there is more than one Video Copilot. There is just one and is the best.
September 17th, 2009 @ 8:36 pm
Great! Can't wait to see the new place :)
September 17th, 2009 @ 9:03 pm
When do you go public?
September 17th, 2009 @ 9:05 pm
Congratulations on the new space. :) Looking forward to see those photos.
September 17th, 2009 @ 9:11 pm
Dude. The number of comments just on your move. You have achieved some kind of mythical status. You give a lot, you get a lot.

I had just watched both Motionworks interviews, so I figured you were pulling a prank! But as with your tuts... NICE WORK!
September 18th, 2009 @ 5:34 am
In true AK style, you should do a "Moving Location" tutorial - showing us VCP morphing from Bedroom, via Study, to palatial offices.

Sam & co would be seen to age - yet AK somehow gets younger...

(Hmmm - Benjamin Button or Dorian Gray?)

Guess what? Andrew had to drive to work today! Haha At a time when people are trying to be economical and work from home. Leave it to Mr. Kramer to do the opposite.

September 18th, 2009 @ 7:32 am
Best of good fortune in the new digs. Credibility comes both in the form of your past credits and what your office looks like. So now you're starting to look the part...but who goes all the way to the Inland Empire for VFX? Just curious.
September 18th, 2009 @ 7:32 am
Sounds like your new office pwns, can't wait to see the pics.
September 18th, 2009 @ 8:10 am

September 18th, 2009 @ 11:15 am
After reading the text after the title "Video Copilot Closing it's Doors" it was the longest 10 seconds of all time, I didn't know what to think in those 10 seconds... You Funny Guy! why I keep falling for that?

well, other than that, Great Job so far! Thanks for your tutorials and products.

Hey Andrew,
congratulations for the new studio.
I wanted to thanks you for your tutorials. I learn almost everything about after effect from your site.
And here are the results: i did a small animation for my school, all inside of after effect.
Not a big deal, but you might recognized some of your " spirit" ^^

good luck

(btw: I'm french, so sorry for the writing..)
