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?

September 16th, 2009 @ 12:15 pm
I was nearly worried that you'd pack up for good.
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:16 pm
great! :D you funnyboy :>
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:19 pm
you funny person you..... green screens are green!

September 16th, 2009 @ 12:19 pm
cool! please post pictures of your new office.
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:20 pm
maybe you should blow up the old office.
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:20 pm
Are we moving on up to the the Jeffersons lol? Well I guess congratulations are in order! Andrew you inspire me.
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:21 pm
Hope you will post pictures of the new office ! ;)
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:21 pm
Woahh!! You really scared me there Andrew!! For a second I thought this was the end of the site!!
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:22 pm
That means that I bursted into bitter tears and nearly had a heart attack for nothing. Bloody titles.
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:22 pm
Wow you scared me! Awesome Andrew, always the funny one. :D Enjoy the extra space!
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:23 pm
I had almost an heart attack when reading "Video Copilot Closing it’s Doors…"
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:23 pm
Congrats, on the new place! Hopefully you'l get more inspired.
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:23 pm
Onwards and upwards. Keep up the good work.
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:23 pm
... now to change my shorts... thanks.
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:23 pm
Oh my...
I have never been worried such this:)
Don't do that again:(
Frank Busch
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:25 pm
I´m glad you´re not really closing down. For a second I thought: Andrew has had it... one "awesome" Comment too much ;-)

But gladly "Video Copilot" is on the way to be more successful than ever...

Congratulations, that´s awesome ;-))

Frank Busch
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:25 pm
The title looks so dramatic! I almost believed that it was the end of VideoCopilot!
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:26 pm
Post some before and after pictures! Old space, new space. :)
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:27 pm
Phew, just got a heart attack! just kidding :)
Looking forward to watching great tutorials!

Oh, and what about making more small movies like "The Meteor"?
I really like it and I would love to see more stuff like this!

Best Wishes
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:28 pm
If VC'd quit, the bizz quits to
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:29 pm
if my worst fear came true, Ah.. i'd probably have to get back to real life.. Andrew do not make me get back to real life, loll.
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:34 pm
Andrew, everything that you do is epic. Even a studio re-location.
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:35 pm
Wow! You really scared the shit out of me there! lol
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:37 pm
Congratulations! Good luck with the move ;)
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:37 pm
Congratulations Andrew and good move! ;)
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:38 pm
O M G i almost got a heartattack i thought you'd closed the website.....

Keep up the good work dude!!!

Love your tutorials man!!
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:39 pm
I almost had a heart attack!! Thank goodness though... Andrew you're awesome!
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:39 pm
Whhhhoooh you scared me :P
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:41 pm
Christ, I almost had a heart attack for like 5 seconds.

I wish we had an office with greenscreens and stuff...

Maybe someday lol
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:43 pm
omg i thought you are going away
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:45 pm
Not that I want you to go anywhere, but I was a little excited that my copies of the products might go up in value :)
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:49 pm
Dude... don't you ever scare me like that again. You've offered so much NO ONE can complain... but that scared me. I was about to shed a tear in front of my laptop :(
Matt in MO.
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:49 pm
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.

Congrats on the new place and looking forward to seeing what becomes of it.
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:52 pm
Excellent you can film indoors with the green-screen and not have to leave the office.... except when you run over Sam with cars and SUVs. Congrats on the success and new office.
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:54 pm
oh man i cant imagin what kind of amazing effects you guys will make. ill visit and bring you cookies if i can :)
Dave B
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:58 pm
Man... a cold chill literally came over me when I thought you guys were closing down.
September 16th, 2009 @ 1:02 pm
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
September 16th, 2009 @ 1:06 pm
I think it's "closing its doors" rather than "closing it's doors" or am I wrong?

However, great that you guys are moving into a cooler location and I hope the community will be allowed to see it in the (hopefully still) upcoming video blog! :)
September 16th, 2009 @ 1:08 pm
i just wept. then i realised it was a joked and i wept again for joy :)
September 16th, 2009 @ 1:11 pm
are you nuts? i was scared to death. not a good joke. :) but greatfull that it is a joke.
September 16th, 2009 @ 1:13 pm
Hey, I know ILM has Tours for visitors... can we expect this on the new building?!?!?!
Adam Sklar
September 16th, 2009 @ 1:15 pm

Oh God...
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:17 pm
Good luck with the move and new building!
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:17 pm

Give us a video-tour when you're done, will you?
September 16th, 2009 @ 1:24 pm
Dude, I'm thinking of suing you. You almost kill me.. I almost fainted, thank God I was able to finish reading and it was a joke.... :D Good luck on the new place, wish I'm pretty sure you don't need.
September 16th, 2009 @ 1:24 pm
So how does one get a job with you guys? hint hint
September 16th, 2009 @ 1:26 pm

September 16th, 2009 @ 1:26 pm
I killed my family and blew up my school all because I read the first sentence. Well, don't judge a book by it's cover takes on a whole new deadly meaning. My next comment will be from jail! (Just kidding, thats kind of ridiculous.)
September 16th, 2009 @ 12:32 pm
Wow...I just spit my mountain dew all over my keyboard! Ya had me for a second...Congrats Andrew!!!
September 16th, 2009 @ 1:33 pm

In french I would say "même pas peur" just to show of and make you believe that you didn't scare me at all Andrew !^^

Have fun with the green screen.
September 16th, 2009 @ 1:56 pm
Ahhhh! My heart is still beating fast! Whew, you got me. Glad things are working out and you are growing - you deserve it all!
September 16th, 2009 @ 2:00 pm

September 16th, 2009 @ 2:16 pm

September 16th, 2009 @ 2:17 pm

I'm glad it is growing. You deserve all the success in the world. Congrats.
September 16th, 2009 @ 2:24 pm

September 16th, 2009 @ 2:26 pm
You took my advice about theatricality a bit... literally. :)
September 16th, 2009 @ 2:30 pm
You should blow up your old office and use it as stock footage for a new product! :D
September 16th, 2009 @ 2:30 pm
OH man you had me worried!
September 16th, 2009 @ 2:32 pm
September 16th, 2009 @ 2:33 pm
“Video Copilot Closing it’s Doors…”, WOW! My heart stopped for a few seconds, Andrew! Please, don't ever do it again, dude...

I'm happy about your new studio. My best wishes for you.

Greetings from Argentina :)
September 16th, 2009 @ 2:34 pm
Maybe you could do a tutorial, on how to move an office properly! It could be hilarious...

September 16th, 2009 @ 2:34 pm
video copilot towers, your bid to rule the world is nearly there, all you need now is a swivel chair and fluffy white cat,

I ve been expecting you... Sam woohoo hoo ha ha ha

Good luck at your new studio

Wow! I read the headline and almost died! I had never used After Effects until I heard of this site, and thanks to Video Copilot, I can spend 8-10 hours a day learning from the tutorials! Thank you VC! And please, never shut your doors for good!
September 16th, 2009 @ 3:01 pm

September 16th, 2009 @ 3:21 pm
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,
September 16th, 2009 @ 3:22 pm

September 16th, 2009 @ 3:22 pm
OMG, When i looked at the first two sentences i was going to die. But i decided to die after reading the all thing.
Congratulations Andrew Kramer, Video Copilot is growing, and growing, and growing, and growing, and growing, and growing,

September 16th, 2009 @ 3:24 pm

BTW I glad for you Andrew
September 16th, 2009 @ 4:02 pm
I read the title and screamed "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooo" as if I was getting my spleen ripped out of my body. (off topic, what the heck is a spleen? :s lol)

Then I read the rest of the post and cried beautiful tears of joy.

20 minutes is still a pain, just don't let it happen again and we'll stay friends :) lol can't wait to see what you'll be able to come up with in the new upgraded office!!!!!
September 16th, 2009 @ 4:08 pm
Andrew, if you closed shop... I would kill myself in a very gruesome way using Action Essentials 2. =)
September 16th, 2009 @ 4:09 pm
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.
September 16th, 2009 @ 4:09 pm
Congrats on the new move!!! =)
September 16th, 2009 @ 4:21 pm
You're a cruel man Andrew. I saw the heading and my heart skipped a beat. Glad that it was just a joke, I've grown too attached to Video Copilot =P Grats on the move though! Now Sam has an indoors location to bust his butt even MORE! =D

September 16th, 2009 @ 7:02 pm
Man I almost cried seeing that heading. Not very nice scaring us like that! However, the news of VC having to expand more than makes up for it. Congrads to you and the team Andrew, you deserve every good thing coming your way!
September 16th, 2009 @ 7:06 pm
Andrew, This is your doctor : You have a 2 days to live, then you wil DIE a slow Painful DEATH!!!

Good God - Does this mean Sam will have his own office or will he still have to stand in the corner (ha). Enjoy the new space. It will no doubt facilitate more great Video Copilot features and products. Afterall, Video Copilot is really the people and a frame of mind and not an office.
September 16th, 2009 @ 8:15 pm
OMG i almost start crying u are mean!!
=D video copilot is the best
September 16th, 2009 @ 8:22 pm
I wonder how many heart attacks this post has caused :D
September 16th, 2009 @ 8:23 pm
I seen the headline Videocopilot is closing its doors and my stomach sunk. you scared the crap out of me. Now that would be sad day to see Video CoPilot go.
September 16th, 2009 @ 8:23 pm
Are you still going to be in LA?
September 16th, 2009 @ 8:29 pm
caused me a heart attack....literally ^^
September 16th, 2009 @ 8:34 pm
Congrats, and dont change as you grow!!
I hope we could see pictures of your office, studio next week, or it would be best if you make a cool tutorial of the transition from your home studio to the new office.
September 16th, 2009 @ 8:36 pm
Hope for the greater coming back.
September 16th, 2009 @ 8:36 pm
I was actually pretty scared, and sad when I saw the title of this blog in the "What's new" thing.. Oh man, that was an intense 12 seconds that it took to load this page and read the 20 minutes part lol!
September 16th, 2009 @ 8:39 pm
godspeed, you crazy emperor!
September 16th, 2009 @ 8:49 pm
I also want to see pictures of the new office ..
Congratulations from Nicaragua ...

September 16th, 2009 @ 9:09 pm

I live in LA and would be willing to help you guys for free! I have just recently (within the last 6 months) discovered you guys and I am making a music video entirely in AE, modeling after most of your effects. If you need help I am more than willing :)
September 16th, 2009 @ 10:00 pm
You gave me a heart attack :(

September 16th, 2009 @ 10:23 pm
You where almost giving me a heart attack! Thought you were stopping for sure, and more than 20 minutes!! :D
September 16th, 2009 @ 10:29 pm

VPTO(Video COpilot Twicth Owners) lol... That excludes those who got it illegally that is... Andrew gives away a lot of free stuff to be pirating his material... Halla Back!!!!

Cheers from Venezuela!
September 17th, 2009 @ 6:18 am
Damn! I was actually scared at that headline! Glad to hear your doing well; Lord knows you've done a lot of good. much deserved.
September 17th, 2009 @ 6:20 am
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. ;)

September 17th, 2009 @ 7:45 am
I would have been taken in, but luckily Britney Spears called me this morning and told me to tell Megan Fox that it wasn't true, because she knew that Megan would kill Andrew if he ever pulled a joke on her like that.

September 17th, 2009 @ 7:57 am
Well... That really was a shock :D But why do you all think that VC will move and wish good luck for the new office? Doesn't "and we have no intention of going anywhere" say that VC won't move?
September 17th, 2009 @ 7:57 am
Congrats on the new place, I love your products, thx for the great tutorials
September 17th, 2009 @ 8:14 am made me poo myself.

September 17th, 2009 @ 8:22 am
Funny :P hehe. What font did you use on the text?

September 17th, 2009 @ 8:39 am
I think they used a similar shade effect like that one in the title of the movie "Pandorum":

Did you guys work on this movie by any chance?
September 17th, 2009 @ 8:39 am
oh man you almost gave me a heart attack. Congrats!
September 17th, 2009 @ 9:05 am

Good ridance!! :-P
September 17th, 2009 @ 9:22 am
I want to personally thank Andrew for nearly giving me a heart attack this afternoon. I've been a fan of Video Copilot for years and the thought of it no longer existing was enough to make me sick. You can NEVER close your doors, or your fans'll find you.
September 17th, 2009 @ 9:23 am
My mouth just about fell off...
September 17th, 2009 @ 9:26 am

a greeting and a few cheers for the creation of your project videocopilot "that has served so many, and the truth have helped a large scale in the use of after effects, only a small observation / suggestion.
with the passage of time have grown from a Habiacion an office suite, more quality in his creations, but why not put captions in Spanish to your video tutorials is time for a couple expancion to Latin countries and believe me that hundreds, thousands say Students who do not know the English language will thank you! besides that you get some remuneration for this simple fact! garcias advance for your magnificent tutorials ..
September 17th, 2009 @ 11:00 am

Jesus wept Andrew, don't do that to me, my heart nearly missed a beat then!!!! ;)
September 18th, 2009 @ 7:28 am
I must admit it did worry me. You guys deserve to do well and I expect it. Congratulations on the expansion. My own family is in the VFX business in Marina del Rey, and I know what it's like. They started with a credit card and some great fluid dynamics software. They too are more than surviving. As we say in Aspen..."Go for it guys."
September 18th, 2009 @ 8:11 am

Wow. Please don't scare me like that again.
September 18th, 2009 @ 6:25 pm
I almost died when I read the you were closing. It is like your kid calling and saying they were in an accident. You are so angry and terrified, but you are so happy they are ok(in this case not really leaving) you can't stay mad. Good one Andrew...good one.
September 19th, 2009 @ 2:15 am
man i nearly jumped of the ledge please dont do that again
September 19th, 2009 @ 4:23 am
I believe my heart just stopped good sir. If you did close doors for good it'd be difficult to find any talented users of AE around.
September 19th, 2009 @ 6:03 am
