Presenting at DMA / Los Angeles on Tuesday

UPDATE: Thanks to everyone for coming and saying hi. I had a blast!

I’m excited to be presenting at the Digital Media Artists / LA meeting next week and hopefully you will can join the fun. It’s a free meeting from 6pm-10pm in Los Angeles but you need to register and last year it sold-out pretty quick. Please stop by, it was great meeting so many of you last year.

Remember, there will be plenty of door prizes as well.

Hey Andrew..
Would it be possible for you to film your lecture and post it on the site.
Unfortunately I live in Israel and will not be able to attend the conference, as I am sure many of who follow up on the site.
I am speaking for all of us abroad who love and are inspired by your work, as well as the others on the Copilot team, Please have someone over there film your lecture and post it on the site.
Thank you in advance for all the hard work.
March 10th, 2010 @ 3:30 am

March 10th, 2010 @ 5:55 am

March 10th, 2010 @ 6:10 am

March 10th, 2010 @ 7:06 am
I have been going to the DMALA meetings for the last few months. Its a great meeting? Its a pretty cool environment were you can meet like minded people. I will be there for sure. I think I'm going to wear my commemorative Andrew Kramer shirt...
Mr. Kramer will you be available for pictures and autographs?
March 10th, 2010 @ 7:23 am

March 10th, 2010 @ 8:06 am
Yeh, film this Event! Is something spetial in September? I'm around LA, Vegas and San Francisco in September. =)
March 10th, 2010 @ 8:55 am
Anyone go last year? I'm over in Phoenix and have an excess of Vacation days but little money. So this may be a nice mini vacation for me.
March 10th, 2010 @ 9:37 am
I would really like to go but must fly from the Netherlands! (15 hours)
March 10th, 2010 @ 9:51 am
I'm only going if Sam is going too.

I'm worried for you Andrew, the crowd was VERY hostile last time.

Good Luck!

March 10th, 2010 @ 9:52 am
Break the mold. Forget the west coast, and stay out of the north east. Head on down to Florida some time man! I'd owe ya a beer or 2 (hundred) just as a "thank you" for all the great training and products you offer us.

Aegis Kleais (AK) Andrew Kramer (AK) Coincidence? I think not!
March 10th, 2010 @ 9:57 am
I can check my abilities.)))))
But I live in Russia.
March 10th, 2010 @ 10:09 am
I do believe I found Waldo!

You should do one in the Atlanta area. Or are you afraid the rapidly changing weather in Georgia will hurt your California skin ;)
March 10th, 2010 @ 10:12 am
why is everyone in that picture giving a thumbs down??? haha
March 10th, 2010 @ 10:25 am

Aaron W.
March 10th, 2010 @ 11:58 am
Woo hoo!!! I might be in the area (I'm generally in the DFW area in texas, since i live here :P) then! I'm crossing my fingers that we'll be going out there to train on the RED... but I have to get confirmation. I will twist arms to go to this, no doubt!
March 10th, 2010 @ 12:14 pm
Any idea on when you might be presenting again in NY?
March 10th, 2010 @ 12:40 pm
Been registered for weeks now. Looking forward to it. Hopefully, that crazy audience member from last time won't be back.
March 10th, 2010 @ 1:22 pm
Nooooo!!! LA, for Los Angeles? I live in New York... Simply can't go all the way to the other side of the USA :((((( Maybe you can make a video of it and post it here???

There is a great deal of love for Andrew Kramer here in Dallas, Texas. We would love for you to visit here and we could provide you a place to stay too on my ranch!
March 17th, 2010 @ 9:14 am
This is just shouting for a live webcams on the internet.
March 17th, 2010 @ 9:55 am
Hey guys,

I was there at the DMA meet up. Andrew showed us a great way to once again put Sam in some type of troubled situation. He said this will eventually be a tutorial, so don't worry about missing out! You have a great one in the pipeline coming to, so stay tuned.

...oh, and he signed my VC hat. :D
March 17th, 2010 @ 11:06 am
this was my first time attending this event and it was outstanding... for some reason some guy infront of me kept on blocking my view... i think he said his name was Andrew ;-) i had a blast Andrew.. keep up the great work... great presentation. love all ur stories by the way. really funny stuff. specially the one about you and the bear.
March 17th, 2010 @ 11:18 am

March 17th, 2010 @ 2:17 pm
I have some footage that i want to upload from last night of andrew but i have to ask his permission first if its ok for those who couldnt make it to see how much fun we had and by the way i won the optical flares last night i was very happy still thank you andrew for putting a smile on my face:)
March 17th, 2010 @ 3:10 pm
I agree with think smpl - now I can buy Hobo Control with my certificate from last night!
March 17th, 2010 @ 3:54 pm
Why every body talk bad about the last time? What happened?
March 17th, 2010 @ 6:25 pm
Turns out Andrew is just as cool in the real world as he makes himself out to be in his tutorials. Glad to see the fame and fortune (ok - maybe not fortune) hasn't gone to your head, Andy. Thanks for the heads up on the mtg...the 4 hour drive was worth it.
March 17th, 2010 @ 11:40 pm

March 18th, 2010 @ 12:28 am

March 18th, 2010 @ 6:36 pm

March 18th, 2010 @ 7:09 pm

It was awesome to see performing A.K (One man show) I confirm to all of you that he doesn't need to edit his videos here to be the way he is... he is just like that if you know what I mean. Thanks for signing my shirt A.K. I recorded the whole thing and you (A.K.) said you want a copy of it so send me a message and I'll give you a link.
March 20th, 2010 @ 7:20 am

March 20th, 2010 @ 10:37 am
Hey Andrew ....

Well done !
March 21st, 2010 @ 2:53 am
March 22nd, 2010 @ 11:56 am

March 22nd, 2010 @ 12:12 pm
March 23rd, 2010 @ 6:23 am
Andrew! Your lessons are very useful and if you were in Russia I can really say a great number of people would visit your meetings!!!

P.S can't stop amusing what you are doing. Thanks!
March 24th, 2010 @ 2:35 am
Hi all

Mr Andrew Kramer your tutorials are very Delightful.
I Profit of them.
March 24th, 2010 @ 6:28 am
I really wish that I lived in the USA, but unfortunately I live on an Isle of Wight just off of mainland UK, so I can't make it but I am really gaining some great experience through your expertise and without Video Copilot I would not be on this amazing journey creating visual effects.
Many thanks Andrew I hope your success keeps growing...

March 25th, 2010 @ 12:36 pm
Due to the fact that most of your fans can't go there, it would be great if we can have access to the conference via a recorded file on your website. I am a bit embarrassed to ask you that because you already give us a lot but I think it's a good idea.
March 28th, 2010 @ 10:04 am
