Video Copilot Closing it’s Doors…

Video Copilot started over 4 years ago in my bedroom and transitioned into a 1-room office suite. After a few years of we have decided to close our doors… for about 20 minutes :)

So that we can reopen at a new location more suited for creative freedom.

As much as I dislike moving, I’m looking forward to the new office and studio space. It’s no ILM but there are a few offices and a nice space for filming and even a greenscreen. We’ll be moving this weekend and start at the new location on Monday.

The truth is, Video Copilot has grown to over 30% in the last 3 months and we have no intention of going anywhere! Besides there is still soda in the fridge.

Not to mention a few extra copies of the most amazing collection ever made:
Action Essentials 2

But what if your worst fear came true?

Andrew, of course we all love the free tutorials, but I think the most essential thing of VideoCopilot is/are the fun/jokes, which creates a smile on every visitor here. If VideoCopilot every closes its stoors (which is a shame), you can always read through this, what I call, a 'joke' and have a thought about the old times of copilot. :)

As a Delta Air Lines jet was flying over Arizona on a clear day, the copilot was providing his passengers with a running commentary about landmarks over the PA system.

"Coming up on the right, you can see the Meteor Crater, which is a major tourist attraction in northern Arizona. It was formed when a lump of nickel and iron, roughly 150 feet in diameter and weighing 300,000 tons, struck the earth at about 40,000 miles an hour, scattering white-hot debris for miles in every direction. The hole measures nearly a mile across and is 570 feet deep."

From the cabin, a passenger was heard to exclaim, "Wow! It just missed the highway!"


Sorry that I just wasted your time. ;)

Congratulations Andrew and all the team there at Video Copilot. I've been hanging around this site for years and tutorials aside I find the energy & passion surrounding VCP to be the biggest influence on my work.

I've worked alone for the last few years and Andrew Kramer has been my co-colleague on all my After Effects projects!

All the best for the future.

Hi Andrew.
Like everyone else out here, I was shocked and sad for a few seconds there. I really want to thank you for the great tutorials that you create for us mere mortals. I find them educational, inspirational, entertaining and truly amazing. Thank you so much for being kind enough to share. I'm a CAD operator from London, UK and only a hobby film maker, but love your work.
Good luck in the new location, and please keep up the good work.
Thanks again.
Best regards,
Badger.

I think it's "closing its doors" rather than "closing it's doors" or am I wrong?

Well , you know i propose that you do a short film about leaving the old office since you're not doing any ones except for tutorials.
So maybe ,you know, after putting off the bagages, put a Bomb on the fridge , then you link up the door with something that when you pull off make the door open so everythin blow , and somehow Sam has an uncontrolable envy to drink a last first-office Soda haha , so you guys tryed to stop him but you couldn't, and then he opened the fridge and booooooooom !...

i think it will be great idea to do a short movie and keep it on your memories stuff

and sorry for my bad english :D

I should have guessed that you were messing with us. After a two part interview with John Dickinson, raving about the success of AE2 and the fact you're almost at the 100th tutorial... closing for good would seem really bad.
