October 31st, 2009 @ 3:13 pm
Sam Vs. Sam was amazing, you should post it as a separate movie, it was hilarious, amazing job!

By the way when filming Sam Vs Sam, did you film on a tripod and use a wiggle effect in AE, or was it filmed hand held and motion tracked?

it was good but not as good as the others but i think that is because of the length but it was still very good

Keep it up :)

it smell very good! concerning halloween in France, commercial try to "impose" us this celebration 3 or 4 years ago, but people dont really know the..." background" of this celebration, they just saw that was a huge commercial operation. so in France halloween is not so expensive.

October 31st, 2009 @ 3:30 pm
Hahahaha, you guys crack me up. I'm seeing some nice compositing in the rain shot too, the clouds and city in the background. Also nice to see that you keep thinking of new creative and innovative ways to kill Sam!
October 31st, 2009 @ 3:32 pm

On the face of it, it seems like Sam has lots of a.....um.....issues.

When the fact of it is - he's doing what came from the pen of SOMEbody else.

Hmmmmmmm...

Brilliant! Can't wait. I'm tired though, it's 11:00 in Wales. That's very cool though. Sam LOL :) Thanks again. Can't wait for the tutorials and other blogs. By the way, when filming the "rain sam lightning scene - Upcoming Tutorial with Sam Loya" did you also film that on a tripod and use a wiggle effect in AE, or was it filmed hand held and motion tracked? (I Understand that this question has been asked but not about this scene though. Please write back. Thanks again,
Theis
October 31st, 2009 @ 3:56 pm
Loved it!

It would be very nice to see some more behind the scenes footages. I would like to see how you set up things - and even better with some tip and tricks added. Tips to the shooting and setup. :)
Mr. Holland
October 31st, 2009 @ 3:58 pm
Wonderfull, Andrew You Make My Halloween!!!

That's cool!
Love the behind the scenes part..
Always love to see what happens behind the cameras!
And also, what do you think about the new show on discovery science? It's called 'Science of the movies', except for that guy being too happy about it, what do you think?

Show us more of you and sam (and the rest of the crew, ofcourse!) behind the scenes, and I do like these little movies!

Great job VP!

Hey AK,
Maybe you should have a tab for VCP gear where we can buy the hat's and t-shirt's, coffee mugs, Halloween masks of you and Sam, pajamas, etc.

Andrew,

Random question....are you wearing fallen sneakers?
October 31st, 2009 @ 4:26 pm
Andrew - I loved the Goonies reference. This is the biggest LMFAO you have provided in all of your tutorials. Thank you and Happy Halloween to you & Sam!
ShoeToad
October 31st, 2009 @ 4:27 pm
Are those hailstones?

Also, there's a glitch in the spark composite;

when Sam's seperated from his legs (and the sparks are gone) you can still see some of them showing up on the ground ... I guess that's not ment to be ^^

Other then that: NICE!

Can't wait on that tutorial!

October 31st, 2009 @ 4:35 pm
Not to be pessimistic, but all that blood/gore on the ground needs to interact with the water puddles and rain more if you want it to look completely realistic…
October 31st, 2009 @ 4:39 pm
I think the single thing i am gonna like in this tutorial is the rain effect...
I'm orthodox and Halloween has a lot of satanic symbols and stuff....unfortunately americans seem to enjoy it...unfortunately

October 31st, 2009 @ 4:42 pm
That was funniest one ive seen in a long time. I think its A great thing u are doing showing behind the scenes shots, and how u actually make the scenes with sam excelent. Keep it up......
Lindsay
October 31st, 2009 @ 4:45 pm
Oh man that was great! Sam Loya Fan Club page... do want! Sam Loya t-shirts, posters and jammies for the kids, a goldmine I tells ya. Must say I'm bummed by the timing of the announcement of the hat. I ordered three DVDs that should be arriving any day now, if I had known I'd have ordered a hat as well, since my hair takes no rigging whatsoever.
October 31st, 2009 @ 5:01 pm
You need 80 candies inorder to get a 20$ suit...so now you can figure it out :)

LOVE YOU ANDREW!

you are truly one of the greats. Look forward to every tutorial. Keep it up Andrew.
October 31st, 2009 @ 5:29 pm
One thing i noticed is that the trees stop rustling when sam explodes. Not a biggie as many people won't notice but its still there. :)
Stef
October 31st, 2009 @ 5:35 pm
Hey andrew! i loved this blog haha! whan of the most hilarious ones ive watched yet. Cool thing with the hat! By the way. I would love to have like a Video Copilot mouse mat or something? maybe it would be a cool idea :D

love your stuff! greetings
Remington M
October 31st, 2009 @ 5:46 pm
Oh yeah, thats a sick idea stef, we totally need some videocopilot mouse pads.
Anyways, awesome "blog show" looking forward to the tutorial. Are you just going to give away the blood and stuff? I guess I have AE2 so it doesn't really matter, but I was just curious.
Rob
October 31st, 2009 @ 5:47 pm
Goonies music was killer...HAHA! Well done! I am still laughing!
October 31st, 2009 @ 5:52 pm
Awesome, well done! Very entertaining!
October 31st, 2009 @ 6:03 pm
I'm a fat bald guy in NEED of a Video Co-Pilot hat! When can we order the swag?! By the way, Thanks for saving my butt last weekend. Had a client that had a bunch 'o video and needed a 26 hour turnaround for a web launch. Used VCP Pro Scores, Twitch, Designer SFX and new found knowledge from the Andrew Kramer Library of Knowledge. Only wish I had more time on the project...

Keep up the great work Professor!
Hob
October 31st, 2009 @ 6:03 pm
Maybe, for the next tutorial, you could have Sam transform into a werewolf, or ...a Jack Russel Terrier? Besides, all the Halloween stuff will be on sale tomorrow, so you could even save a few dollars on supplies. It's a shame it couldn't have been done FOR Halloween, though.
Tarrizz
October 31st, 2009 @ 6:06 pm
Poor, poor Sam :/

yeah you should give Sam more lines, he's really a good actor :P

I think you could've had a more Halloween inspired tutorial, though somebody finally died a gruesome death.
TK-Master
October 31st, 2009 @ 6:18 pm
hahaha! i rofled so much on sam's face on the sam vs sam scene xD gj andrew as always.. 1 thing i noticed even from the first time i saw the video is at 5.05-5.07.. sam's clone is not there :P well anyway we are w8ing for the tut!
Jason Spinks
October 31st, 2009 @ 6:29 pm
No fake applause at the end to simulate the LIVE studio audience. :Z

All in all a great blog show, was nice to see the Video Copilot studio.
Dan
October 31st, 2009 @ 6:38 pm
...I loved this guy known as Sam ...

It's a shame that you had to kill him. Cuz ... we all know that Sam has no evil twin.

You can't foul me with your special effects ANDREW !

He probably knew to much anyway... I can understand and forgive.

Seriously ... nice job!

October 31st, 2009 @ 7:10 pm
NICE!! Love the sam vs sam skit, and the new tutorial!

PS - Aside from the topic, I have a question. There is a lot of controversy going on over what editing software is the best: Avid, Final Cut, or Premiere Pro. They say that premiere pro isn't even a factor, and that Avid is more top-of-the-line. Although I have had experience with all three, I still find Premiere to be a very good tool, although they choose to rule it out. My question is, what do you think is the most effective tool for professional editing?
October 31st, 2009 @ 7:16 pm
hey. .

can't wait for the upcoming tutorial!!

especially sam vs sam. .

Hey! Im such a huge fan of the site! I have been working in after effects for about three months now, and every day I feel like I learn twice as much as I knew the day before!

Your tutorials are really great, and have been the main factor in the motivation behind my work.

Do you have any suggestions as to a plug-in that will allow text to be extruded in 3D? Because I currently use the shatter effect, but lighting gets a little iffy on that.I was just wondering if you use any plugins for that!

Looking forward to the tutorial.
Thx again AK

WHOA! nice tutorial! I expected to see it now allready, since i was refreshing the page for hours yester day night (i commented at 21:54 local time here) and not it's 11:20 here, and the tutorial still isn't up, is there something wrong? Or is it just becoming evening there?
Jenovah
November 1st, 2009 @ 3:34 am
I'm also wondering how you would fix the problem with the wind. The tree on the back end isnt blowing at all, probably since you did some scene extension there.

But the trees on the front shouldn't stop moving from the wind after Sam explodes, which happens now. I know I'm talking about stupid details because the shot looks EXCELLENT. But I'm curious to know how you would be fixing that...
Skully
November 1st, 2009 @ 3:40 am
After Sam explodes the Trees stopped mooving.
November 1st, 2009 @ 4:04 am
Glad people understood the goonies reference! Wasn't sure about that one :)

As for the static trees at the end... you will see in the tutorial the trees are not static. In the example, I decided to make Sam explode at the last minute so I didn't recomp the backplate from the source footage.

Besides, maybe I wanted them to be frozen. These radioactive lightning bolts generate high frequency electro-STATIC waves that freeze everything within a 6-block radius! Even trees. or maybe I just forgot...

OMG, That is so funny. Love the Goonies reference. I love that film, one of my all time fav's.

As always, you and the team, over at VideoCopilot, do the best tutorials and it has to be said the out takes were brilliant!
More blog's like these please.
Looking forward to the tutorial as always..
Peace Out

Great stuff, extremely entertaining! It's a shame these blog shows don't go longer than they do. :)

I'd love to know how you did the rain so well, I tried to create some rain a few days ago in both After Effects and 3ds Max. Everything I tried, failed. I haven't entirely given up, I am still looking around to see how it can be done well.

November 1st, 2009 @ 6:04 am
I can't believe no one has mentioned the use of the Optical Flares in this video blog! Nice Andrew, I like them!! When will the be available? I gots to have them!!!!
November 1st, 2009 @ 6:21 am
Hi Andrew, phenomenal Blog Show! Great!!! ;o) One short question: Wich camera are you using for the shooting with Sam?

Nice Greetings,

November 1st, 2009 @ 6:31 am
how do you make the video copilot floor exploding intro to your vids? maybe a tut on that?

:D

Thanks
November 1st, 2009 @ 6:34 am
Great show!
Awsome! ;)

Yeah, which camera did you use?
Lindsay
November 1st, 2009 @ 6:55 am
Hmm, an interesting discussion to be had on the gear that you use. Not just the camera but I'm assuming there's a 35mm lens adapter *or* is the depth of field in Sam vs. Sam created in AE. It looks more organic to me so I'm guessing a Redrock or similar. I believe I've seen the snout of a Kessler crane on the site at some point as well.So how about a rundown of the VideoCopilot gear horde, what's hiding under the Rycote wind suppressor, what model of Blue mic are you using for the voiceovers and what's the ratio of brand name versus home brew tech in use with team Kramer?

Can't wait for the tutorial ;)
November 1st, 2009 @ 9:57 am
This was so good I had to watch it 3 times.

Hope we won't have to wait long for the tutorial, I have a neighbor I want to get struck by lightning for drilling while I'm taking a nap. Wrapping him up in tinfoil and tying him to the chimney didn't work out well last month.

Love the behind the scenes footage..I hope you will do that a lot..

Thanks for being both a tutor and inspiration

When I was on forum, I watched a couple of "headshots", theye were pretty amazing, but this one looked REALLY realistic and cool:D You are really amazing in motion - graphics and visual effects. Good Job Mr. Andrew Kramer
November 1st, 2009 @ 10:08 am
Looks good, However I am really interested in the ground breaking and floating effect you did for the title card. It's perfect for a short film I've been wanting to do. Any chance you are going to make a tutorial or blog post on the setup of that"?
Max Porto
November 1st, 2009 @ 10:09 am
I want the Video Copilot hat. What can I do to order it? Greetings from a Brazil's fan!
Max Porto
November 1st, 2009 @ 10:12 am
By the way. Just a suggestion: What do you think to put one of the San's boots falling on the ground, when the lightning destroyed him? You know? More realistic, I think.
Great job. Sam is the anti-hero. :)
Max Porto
November 1st, 2009 @ 10:14 am
Correction... anti-heroe, I mean.

Anyway..

Happy Halloween Andrew! Keep rocking, you're the master...

This show was fantastic It was so fun to watch it.
And I like it very much when you show "behind the scenes footage"
I look up to you Andrew and I could watch your show every day.. But too bad that there is so long time between every show...

Anyways Keep up the good work and Awesomeness.

Huh!?!!
"Catch you" ...I guess I completely missed the AE parts.
As far as I can see you haven't "started"

I could post a list of traing and marketing videos for insurance agents that's hundreds of clips long, but I can't because they're for Agent/Brokers Use Only ...that and I wouldn't because they're banal and would throw people here into chronic and acute fits of ennuie!
john grenham
November 1st, 2009 @ 12:25 pm

November 1st, 2009 @ 12:28 pm
As always there Andrew another FANTASTIC 'video'. Loving this new video blog/show thingy!

Would LOVE to see more 'Behind the Scenes' stuff of you guys filming for AE tuts. After-all you are 'VIDEO' Co-pilot not 'AE' Co-pilot. - LOL
- Just kidding, although I hope I haven't given anyone any ideas on starting a new website. That said, if i did then I'd like a credit... or maybe some cash... or free-bs' or something ;)

Justin
November 1st, 2009 @ 2:05 pm
The website is still going to explode. There's probably several hundred people anxiously refreshing so that they too can get a chance to strike Sam with lightning.

I need a video copilot hat. I can't live without one. All of my friends will think that I'm the coolest and they will want hats too. Then all of their friends will get hats. Eventually everyone will have a Video Copilot hat and then I will have to order the newer version of the video copilot hat. And then everyone will know that I am the one true video copilot King. Please let me know how to get a hat. dnastudioproductions.blogspot.com

this blog shot was great! loved the behind the scenes footage! amazing job on sam vs. sam! the camera shake looked very convincing as well, would you mind sharing what values you put into the wiggler for that? all the ones i've tried never look that good.
November 1st, 2009 @ 5:02 pm
This tutorial looks absolutely amazing! So many different technuiqes involved... I can't wait to try it out for myself!

The blood on the lense and the ground looks sick! The CC is great as always, and the lightning strike looks very good! You did a great job on mixing the RL elemtns, such as the blood splatter and sparks, with the CG elements. It's also nice to see you bringing back some of the technuiqes from some of the older VC tutorials, such as the rain drops on the lense, and don't forget the sky replacement! Breathtaking as always!

I can't wait to see how you made the water on the ground splash. I've been trying to figure out how you did it, but I can't seem to make it look right. Maybe the reason why I can't re-create the water exactly, is because it's RL footage from Action Essentials 2?

Keep up the great work! You're truly an inspiration!
Trey Y.
November 1st, 2009 @ 5:05 pm

Oh and how does Sam keep coming back to life?

And he'll STILL have to get up maybe three or four times TONIGHT too.

So glad you decided to do the video blog. I recommend your site at least five times a week and this kind of personal touch just makes it that much more pleasant to visit. I've done a lot of work in tutorial production and I am always impressed with your proper ratio of quality:interest:humor. Keep up the great work and thank you so much for all the AE help!

btw - Goonies bit gave me no choice but to post. Well done sir. Well done.

Well, to add to the hundreds of comments already here...
This was the greatest BlogShow yet! Love the behind the scenes, your usual humor, and even a bonus little short! After just receiving my copy of AE2, it's great to see you start using these elements in tutorials and in the show. That short was fantastic and hilarious! I'm on my way to watch the tutorial now.
Thanks for everything Andrew.
P.S. Are you sure you used the USPS to ship my AE2? It looks like a gorilla shoved it in my mailbox, pretty much destroying the DVD case. Thankfully, the discs are perfect, and that's what matters.

I just have to get this off my mind because...well it's been nagging me. I'd like to see a video blog from Andrews wife! Call it "Living with Andrew". Seriously! Andrew is a kick to listen to and watch. But what is it really like to live with a genius like him.

Ahhh! That felt good. I can now get on with more tutorials.
March 7th, 2010 @ 3:39 am
Yes, that's it. I really like this. It's very special effect. Andrew Kramer is a professional.

BAHAHAHA! How are there NOT more comments about the "Hobo Stand-in" bit? That was incredibly funny. :) And i kno funni.... poor spelling for example is not funny, but Actual hobo, now thats comedy :D

Hi , how do you do that breaking up effect of the floor? like 2012 :P in the videocopilot intro
June 15th, 2010 @ 11:06 am
For your, um, scientific study, you also need to take in the possibility of someone making their costume, rather than buying a generic one at a store. You get more candy if you're creative with you're costume because I got 7 pounds of candy when I went as a giant sandwich!
November 9th, 2010 @ 1:34 pm
for a $20 costume you would need 200 pieces of candy. (by the way, I'm english. I do not understand whether that would be expensive candy or not. I assume not)
