Axe, Body Spray

And I’m not talking about some old deodorant but the kinda axe that keeps you safe at night. An axe opens up a lot of possibilities, people don’t mess with people that have Axes. It’s a fact.

Now I have this cool axe and I need to do something with it so I’m going to call Sam and see what we can arrange. Maybe we can throw the axe at the camera or even throw a camera at the axe, I don’t know!!

But whatever we do, we’re going to have some fun.

August 25th, 2010 @ 1:57 pm
Haha. Throw the camera at the axe, or Axe and Camera at a person that's wearing an Axe Deodorant!

August 25th, 2010 @ 1:58 pm
that would be an awesome tutorial it would be even cooler if you could do a tutorial on you throwing the axe at sam
or maybe just really doing it
August 25th, 2010 @ 1:59 pm
Throwing the camera to the axe??? Doesn't sound like a good idea to me haha, but enjoy throwing axes to each other!
(Or something...)
August 25th, 2010 @ 2:00 pm
This will be fun !
Andrew please don't hurt Sam too much.

August 25th, 2010 @ 2:01 pm
thanks alex you posted a comment like .5 seconds before me

now I have to wait all day everyday tile the next post is up
August 25th, 2010 @ 2:01 pm
Hi Andrew,
maybe you can come up with a tutorial on how to slice bread or even someone´s head off^^

Geetings from Germany
August 25th, 2010 @ 2:05 pm
You could throw an AXE to an AXE!!! :D but you'll need a second axe. Mmmm maybe clonning the axe?! Wouldn't be awesome to have AE options in the real world? Hahahaha!

August 25th, 2010 @ 2:09 pm
"or even throw a camera at the axe" LOL
August 25th, 2010 @ 2:10 pm
haha! great update Andrew! your cool jokes always make me laughing! :D:D:D

Greetings from Czech! :)

August 25th, 2010 @ 2:12 pm
I love Axe Deodorant. How else can I detect a dirtbag from a mile away?
August 25th, 2010 @ 2:16 pm
OR......................You can take a 1080 shot of the axe before you throw it (at Sam, Michael Bay or JJ Abrams...wait I forgot, those are your meal tickets) and use 3DS Max to make a 3D version of the axe, put it in AE, call up Particular.....I'm sure you smell what the Rock is cooking!!!!!
August 25th, 2010 @ 2:17 pm
I can picture something with magic involved since that would be a new spin on things. Maybe the axe possesses magic and causes Sam to finally flip out and go Jason on some foos. haha
August 25th, 2010 @ 2:18 pm
As long as this involves Sam and some 3D, I'm happy LMAO!
August 25th, 2010 @ 2:19 pm
Hehe. I smell Sam getting hurt. Bad.
August 25th, 2010 @ 2:19 pm
I hope Sam doesn't get hurt.

August 25th, 2010 @ 2:20 pm
This would be a great opportunity for some dismemberment. With the edition of 3ds Max.
August 25th, 2010 @ 2:21 pm
axe a can of axe.

August 25th, 2010 @ 2:22 pm
I love the old spice commercials... If you want to know more about the company that made it go to It's by far my favorite production house and they are located in Portland Oregon and they happen to be in my back yard. Andrew Kramer is awesome too now everybody lets go eat some cheese!
John Wildauer
August 25th, 2010 @ 2:23 pm
Could you also demonstrate something where you have the axe or a knife of some sort get thrown into a wall with some one standing precariously close to the impact? Then you can spice it up with some time remapping or something You could show how to make the object twitch in the wall after the impact. Also I don't know exactly how much you can do in After Effects regarding sound and sound effects but I feel that sound is an essential part to any video and if you could elaborate on that sometime that would be awesome.
John Wildauer
August 25th, 2010 @ 2:27 pm
How about you go to pick up the ax and throw it but you grab Sam and toss him instead. Then you could go to shake hands with the axe because of the great throw you just did and lose a finger.....

God, I need a life.
August 25th, 2010 @ 2:28 pm
Big trouble in little china comes to mind where kurt Russell has a knife thrown at him then catches and throws it back straight into the bad guys head. you could do a parody. lol
August 25th, 2010 @ 2:30 pm
I vote for dismemberment. Or disembowelment. Or some sort of ment.
August 25th, 2010 @ 2:36 pm
OR....Have Sam dress up like a Viking, give him the axe and throw him in a scene from World of Warcraft, going after those dang Mr T Knight Elf Mohawks.......
Herbert Silver
August 25th, 2010 @ 2:43 pm
Andrew's face is just Funnie! LOL.
August 25th, 2010 @ 2:58 pm
I think Sam is long overdue for some extreme know, in after effects. :-)
Some Guy
August 25th, 2010 @ 3:17 pm
"Maybe we can throw the axe at the camera or even throw a camera at the axe, I don’t know!!"
I totally LOL'd.

This idea sounds like a lot of fun. Hopefully it won't take long. Or you can shorten the wait with a Blog Show about it. You know, with some outtakes, where the axe is actually flying towards... Oh, poor Sam. :)
August 25th, 2010 @ 3:34 pm
Maybe you throw the axe into Sam's head! Whatever you do, I know is gonna be awesome!
August 25th, 2010 @ 3:42 pm
I vote on making a parody of some of the Axe Deodorant commercials. Maybe have some good looking girls (if that can be arranged) axe Sam to death.. I mean a make over.
Kevin C
August 25th, 2010 @ 3:43 pm
Sorry Sam.
August 25th, 2010 @ 3:47 pm

Running out of ideas? how about making a Hollywood catastrophic scene? like you see in the movies! Using this image:

Here are some examples:
August 25th, 2010 @ 3:53 pm
Why do i get a feeling that Sam will die again
August 25th, 2010 @ 3:54 pm
I suggest getting another weapon, perhaps some pieces of armor and nice outfits so you and Sam could dress up as knights and have an epic battle!
Ofcourse dismembered limbs and decapitations would have to be included.

If you need anymore weapons I have a few lying around swords, axes, maces and even a polearm. I live near a forest which would be an ideal location! just give me a shout Andrew! ;)
August 25th, 2010 @ 3:54 pm
Andrew i think u whana kille sam lol .
August 25th, 2010 @ 3:56 pm
Here is what you can do with an Axe, Action Essentials 2, and After Effects! Clip from our feature vampire flick, this file has been refined since this render. Nevertheless, here is the link:
August 25th, 2010 @ 3:56 pm
You know what they say about men with short axes! ;)
Have fun!
August 25th, 2010 @ 4:06 pm
hey Andrew,
you could fix the axe to a table. And through Sam onto it. If you polish your floor well, you could even make it look like an accident, like: yo check out this cool axe I...ooopsss.
August 25th, 2010 @ 4:12 pm
I sure you can do this without hurting Sam. Like Throwing the axe into Sams Chest which makes him slide into a wall...

Oh wait
August 25th, 2010 @ 4:16 pm
Last I saw Sam, he was off running black ops missions, destroying terrorists and rescuing hostages with his barbwire cutting knife and exploding arrows. You can't just call him up... He's got important things to do, like exploding things. Besides, I bet he's already got one of those axes, under his pillow.

Throwing the axe, could make for some interesting planar tracking fun. Woohoo! Tracking! Doesn't that sound like a good time?
August 25th, 2010 @ 4:21 pm
Sorry. Posting again, already.

It occurs to me that an axe is a perfect zombie crushing weapon. Several years ago I watched a "making of" Terminator 3 and thought the scenes with Arnolds face, painted chroma green, looked fun to play with. Might be fun to do some chroma work like that, where chunks of zombie flesh get chopped off. Just a thought.
August 25th, 2010 @ 4:36 pm
Judging from the picture, Andrew has been up to no good today.
August 25th, 2010 @ 4:47 pm
Or.....or..... you can throw sam at the camera with the axe in his head.oh and please make it look like an accident...or not....
August 25th, 2010 @ 4:51 pm
August 25th, 2010 @ 4:53 pm
You can make it a slow motion axe swinging at us as in the new Resident Evil 4 3D movie trailer
August 25th, 2010 @ 4:56 pm
After the Directing Mallet, now comes the Acting Axe ! Sounds cool.

But I hope you're not forgetting that screen cap of SAM in a SWAT-like uniform, mmm ? I mean, there are a few cool ideas you mentioned and we never heard of them anymore...

I'd throw an Andrew Kramer at the camera.
August 25th, 2010 @ 5:09 pm
Maybe you could have some sort of Horror themed tutorial...
August 25th, 2010 @ 5:55 pm
You should ride into the hills of Mordor and battle orcs whilst listening to Blind Guardian.
August 25th, 2010 @ 6:01 pm
You should do a "Double Pits to Chesty".
August 25th, 2010 @ 6:22 pm
we dont knw wat will u do with the AXE
but we knw it will be awesome
August 25th, 2010 @ 6:31 pm
Dude thanks for sharing that AD - very funny! :D
and i'm so excited: :D
August 25th, 2010 @ 7:00 pm
Sam's finally being given the axe! lol

August 25th, 2010 @ 7:11 pm
Stereoscopic 3D teaser?
August 25th, 2010 @ 7:19 pm
You should put a tutorial up on how to make a BLT sandwich.
Then you could slice it with the axe.
August 25th, 2010 @ 7:21 pm
i think u should make a tornado skill with the axe. like DotA. it s very cool effect.
August 25th, 2010 @ 7:24 pm
oh, u can also throw the axe to sb in slow motion. wow, that will be great.
August 25th, 2010 @ 7:28 pm
I'm your student. I live in Mongolia.
Ayb from the Philippines
August 25th, 2010 @ 7:51 pm
hahahaha! Can't wait to see Sam.... Nice Blog AK!
August 25th, 2010 @ 8:01 pm
Hey Andrew! I'm not sure if this video has already been posted on here or not, but it would be cool to see somewhere because it took me a while to find it.
August 25th, 2010 @ 8:10 pm
I guess this is the new axe effect. Or one of the after effects...
August 25th, 2010 @ 8:41 pm
All my axes live in Texas.
August 25th, 2010 @ 8:47 pm
Find another 2 and juggle with them!
August 25th, 2010 @ 9:04 pm
I'm so stoked! Your tutorials are the best!

You should totally make a huge particle system of CG dwarf-battle axes and launch them at a tank... full of pizza pockets, for good measure. I can see it now...
August 25th, 2010 @ 9:05 pm
How about dressing Sam as character from 300. Choreograph a fight scene and you're good to go.

P.S: Don't forget to paint those fake abs on Sam :)
August 25th, 2010 @ 9:05 pm
I'm looking forward to see the camera trhowing tutorial!!! hahahaha
August 25th, 2010 @ 9:05 pm
hey Andrew do you know the axe money ? its my new creation... i made a cool video showing the power of axe money .. its on facebook here is the link!/pages/Avez-vous-deja-choft/149158555109837?ref=ts
August 25th, 2010 @ 9:09 pm

August 25th, 2010 @ 9:25 pm
great tool in the editing suite for pesky clients;-)
August 25th, 2010 @ 10:13 pm
Ok, I couldn't decide so I'll list them both:

(to Sam)"When I say cut, I mean CUT!!!"

"The razor cut tool in CS5 is MUCH more powerful"
August 25th, 2010 @ 10:16 pm
I wonder if Sam going to get killed..again...Well, my dear Sam Loya you did get through a lot... Electrified, passed through a window, Tried suicide, rammed by a car, bot disintegrated, Had bugs under skins.. MAN.. I wonder what will happen to you this time..
August 25th, 2010 @ 10:18 pm
Reminds me of the scene in "Machete" where Danny Trejo throws a machete past the camera :)
August 25th, 2010 @ 11:18 pm
you may throw the whole video copilot things looooool ... not only camera .. even sam loooool :D
August 25th, 2010 @ 11:24 pm could you do something like Kill Bill
August 25th, 2010 @ 11:32 pm
Throw the Axe to Sam andrew :D its October soon, time for another Halloween video tutorial! Cut him in half lol!
August 25th, 2010 @ 11:32 pm
Now there's a picture I like! Can't wait to see what you have in store ;)
August 25th, 2010 @ 11:49 pm

Haha, that face! This looks interesting and sounds interesting, should be another cracking tutorial.
August 26th, 2010 @ 12:44 am
Please See Resident Evil: After Life (Trailer), for get some ideas to kill sam! lol

I love you Andrew
I am Edris Mohammadi from Iran, Kurdestan, Sanandaj.
August 26th, 2010 @ 12:48 am
Mmmmhyeaaah... ! Just one question : When you say "we can throw the axe at the camera" is it like a subliminal message ?! I mean, you should say "I, Andrew Kramer,am gonna throw the axe at Sam !"

So the second possibility may be a little tricky... I let you guess why ^^
August 26th, 2010 @ 12:49 am
maybe you could do somthing on chopping off limbs, that be cool
August 26th, 2010 @ 1:41 am
You Should Walk Around With it...
August 26th, 2010 @ 1:53 am
hi sir i think it will be fun to see the tutorials on “Axe and agin sam will have to face the funny shots
August 26th, 2010 @ 2:25 am
Sam have died so many times in Yr tuts:) maybe this time U will use axe against... wood:) U know, chop the wood whit the throwing out particles, maybe some sparks from axe when it hits a metal...

I love your humor Andrew! Would be nice to see some stabbing effects or something ..
August 26th, 2010 @ 3:21 am
Nice one! Check the axe throwing in the 'Haven can wait' video from Beck,

Cheers, Niels
August 26th, 2010 @ 3:41 am
Andrew, you must be busy with other things because lately, I've noticed a decrease in your composting, color-wise. I know you are addicted to curves but the blood in the picture.... doesn't look like your composting work. Just looks like a quick overlay with no color correction and no match to the rest of the picture. I've seen you do much better in past tutorials.
August 26th, 2010 @ 3:55 am
Make a slow-motion axe throw to the camera
August 26th, 2010 @ 4:03 am
Make an anti-commercial against Axe(Deodorant), maybe by slicing it or make Sam the Company's boss and "Axe" him a question if you know what i mean...
August 26th, 2010 @ 4:26 am
You should do a stereoscopic 3d axe throw at the camera!!!
August 26th, 2010 @ 4:41 am
Nice, I was thinking that sam maybe chopped or he's chopping someone as seen in your featured picture. But whatever your thinking of doing, I bet its going to be AWESOME!!
August 26th, 2010 @ 4:51 am
throw the camera at my house!
or my studio I wont mind at all...
Ricardo Mantovani
August 26th, 2010 @ 5:07 am
Kramer! You look like a psycho, cool.
August 26th, 2010 @ 5:28 am
Andrew is finally ready for the zombie apocalypse.
Peter Kreitner
August 26th, 2010 @ 5:43 am
LOL! You're right! ''Axe,, trilogy is ready?
Simpleton Droid
August 26th, 2010 @ 6:01 am
bla bla drools *falls overself* make a tutorial! bla bla...yea great!
August 26th, 2010 @ 6:15 am
Yea please .. Throw the camera at the AXE not the AXE at the camera .. :D
Todd VanSlyck
August 26th, 2010 @ 6:54 am
You could attach snakes to Sam's head and make him Sam-dusa, then of course chop it off, only after he turns somebody to stone
Diego G.
August 26th, 2010 @ 7:12 am
I know! You're gonna do a sandwich, ain't you? I mean, a Sam-dwich perhaps?
August 26th, 2010 @ 7:13 am
Yeah, throw some axes, cut heads, hands, destroy everything, we wanna see blood everywhere, interiors down the ground and little pieces of brain on the camera or, better, an eye.

August 26th, 2010 @ 7:17 am
Hey !
u have a axe it's OK ,but who's blood is THIS ...?
August 26th, 2010 @ 7:23 am
I think you should do a video of Sam getting an arm or a leg chopped off. I read somewhere above someone suggesting using 3ds max. I think this is a great opportunity to do a tutorials showing the integration of 3d cg back into live action realistically. :)
August 26th, 2010 @ 7:27 am
hahahahaha crazy!! ^^
August 26th, 2010 @ 7:48 am
great idea for a Stereoscopic 3D tutorial in after effects, throwing the axe to the camera rocks!!!
August 26th, 2010 @ 7:58 am
:D u rock

i have made some intros.....4 evreyone
August 26th, 2010 @ 8:54 am
hi sir andrew new to your site, by the way im rudolph from philippines...i saw your tutorials over the net and i really admire your works...everything is awesome...just writing to let you know that im becoming a great fan of you...hahahaha...i really wanted to learn things like after effects though im an engineering student...i really like it..
August 26th, 2010 @ 9:06 am
You should throw both of them, but with the anchor point of the camera linked to the Axe and the Axe linked to Sam who's running really scared all the time.

(just a bad joke :P)
August 26th, 2010 @ 9:07 am
How about the V for Vendetta "knife-throwing-cycling-through-the-air-leaving-matrix-like-streaks" effect?
August 26th, 2010 @ 9:23 am
Andrew Kramer an axe murderer?! Hmmmm... dunno.
August 26th, 2010 @ 9:29 am
Sounds like fun....just "axe" anybody around here...;)
August 26th, 2010 @ 9:47 am
Hey Andrew looks like fun, but can I axe you why no blog shows lately? They are great fun to watch, please do some new blog shows,
We don't care what their about just make something and put it on the blog show!
August 26th, 2010 @ 11:31 am

August 26th, 2010 @ 12:21 pm
OH God....! Sammm
August 26th, 2010 @ 12:29 pm
Hey Andrew, maibe you need to call Sam to make another video and then call it, the revenge of the Axe, and finish with the body spray like the picture. LOL.
Helper hand
August 26th, 2010 @ 12:30 pm
Throw an axe in slow-mo at Sam and have it cut off Sam's head or limb :D
August 26th, 2010 @ 12:39 pm
Isn't that the kind of axe for people that are too lazy to turn in over?
August 26th, 2010 @ 12:51 pm
that is a resident evil scene jajaja
August 26th, 2010 @ 12:59 pm
Do double pits to chesty with the axe to sam
August 26th, 2010 @ 1:24 pm
August 26th, 2010 @ 2:07 pm
I should've used that effect in my horror movie...

Kramer you rule
August 26th, 2010 @ 2:53 pm
You should destroy an bottle of axe body spray with a real axe. Have Sam steal the bottle from some one and then they catch him and destroy it!!
August 26th, 2010 @ 3:56 pm
@Arnold Yeah, the Kill Bill axe throw would be a cool one to recreate!
August 26th, 2010 @ 4:18 pm
it so beautifulll!

you are the man!!
August 26th, 2010 @ 7:28 pm
..but the REAL question is:

Does a producers axe outrank the directors hammer?
August 26th, 2010 @ 8:31 pm
Throw the camera and the axe at sam =)
August 26th, 2010 @ 9:10 pm

August 27th, 2010 @ 7:05 am

Is it going to be something like this?
Andrew Katrych

N!CE Andrew you are Great 1!
September 7th, 2010 @ 6:28 am
Have you been watching a lot of vikings movies lately??.....Or Maybe it's that asterix and obelix cartoon.
Actually I used watch that a lot when I was a kid.

Anyways it would be nice to see a new tutorial or short movie you would make. I actually wish to see you some day with a full featured film in grand cinemas....Which actually very possible in your case....oh!! and SAM of course. that guy deserves to be on the big screen. Maybe then I would have the opportunity to work with you....who knows.
September 8th, 2010 @ 4:30 am
whatever it will be with full of knowledge and fun..;)
September 11th, 2010 @ 6:56 am
Very impressive guys! I’m continually amazed at what you guys are doing.and Andrew please don’t hurt Sam too much.
September 11th, 2010 @ 7:32 pm
Please Andrew, can we see a tutorial of somebody's arms/legs/ head being cut off with lots of blood flying about.. As seen in the TV show "Spartacus"? Thanks
September 16th, 2010 @ 3:49 pm
I tutorial how to make cuts and blood like spartacus:blood and sand would be nice. xD
September 28th, 2010 @ 2:03 am
Master you look great

October 7th, 2010 @ 5:07 pm
Hey Andrew, The Axe throwing sounds interesting....but I have to say, the link to the deodorant comercial..haha..I live in the UK so have never seen that Ad before..did you have anything to do with it?? It's so clever...
