Failed Blog Show Out-take

So we’re working on a fun new blog show and it’s taking a little longer to produce than expected but here is an embarrassing out-take to enjoy.

Believe it or not, we have to use trick editing to make it seem like I can say a complete sentence. Usually I can introduce a segment in 1-2 takes but some days… not so much.

Be gentle, it was windy. Should probably watch before you read any comments…

Check it out

Shouldn't have watched this with the sound all the way up at night. Pretty sure I woke my neighbors up. :) Bravo, Andrew!
September 24th, 2010 @ 9:47 pm
You're my hero :D
Andrew Paxson
September 24th, 2010 @ 9:49 pm
Did you use AE built in tracker or something like Boujou or Matchmover? Also the shock wave that follows the blast is that a dust clip?? for a AE made asset? btw Very unique and unsuspecting!
Creati7e
September 24th, 2010 @ 9:54 pm
Very nice, got me too. But, if it was Sam in the vid he would have been blown to bits lol.
James Price
September 24th, 2010 @ 9:55 pm

Spencer T
September 24th, 2010 @ 11:51 pm
Aw, crap! I hate it when that happens! I remember once I worked on this spot where I had to remove that from right behind an actresses head - lots of roto... Maybe it has something to do with the wind? Her hair was all over the place...

September 24th, 2010 @ 11:55 pm

mystic7
September 25th, 2010 @ 4:18 am
Come on, that was so beneath you. People have been sticking videos like this on youtube for years. Count how many times the car makes a turn.... and then suddenly a demon appears in front of the camera with a loud scream.

And what's up with those pants!?!?!
September 25th, 2010 @ 4:41 am
Hey. That was the best Outtakes I have ever seen. You are so great. Please make a Tutorial about this Video.

Dear Reguards,

Shaun
September 25th, 2010 @ 5:26 am
He tricked us!! it's like of those car commercials on YouTube which are really just a joke to scare you. Like you'll be watching it thinking it's normal than boom something loud screams in you face.

Well done Kramer, I had the volume cranked up on that one too. Well I have AE2 so no daught will need it for the tutorial.
Andu
September 25th, 2010 @ 5:36 am

September 25th, 2010 @ 5:44 am
'..you think the dust is going to hit the camera ?' me - what dust ?
'.. maybe we should try it behind the building' me - what? why
Then this weird feeling, like the one you get when you are about to be surprised..

I turned up the volume on my headset, cos of the wind(which i now know you added!), BIG MISTAKE!

Very tricky Andrew, cant comment on the work though.. like I need to,.. ;)
Martin Cunningham
September 25th, 2010 @ 5:49 am

this would be a cool tutorial. the way the ring shaped pulse of air shot across the screen. compositing all the elements together. i know you have the tut on action essentials for some explosions but nothing like this.

Awesome job !

The motion tracking was just SOOOOOO DAMN GOOOD!!!!
im assuming this is from A.Essentials2 collection
when will we get A.Essentials 3 :D!!!!!
September 25th, 2010 @ 12:56 pm
It looks cool but its nothing we haven't seen before. just ordinary explosion compositing with a little motion tracking.
September 25th, 2010 @ 1:07 pm
Hey Andrew. Fantastic job! I just had a question: we all know that After Effects doesn't have the best tracker, and we all can't afford Boujou or SynthEyes. Could you tell us a way to integrate precise tracking data with the Voodoo tracker (it's free and just as good as Boujou) into After Effects? It's a problem I've had for the longest time.

That was amazing. I can't stop laughing! I almost had a heart attack, as i didn't see that coming at all. That's what I love about the VideoCopilot crew. You never know what to expect, and it's great. The Effect was superb, acting as well! You've used your status as being a great trusting person to great effect and we've focused our attention to every word you said in the video until the point of now return. Great and i only hope there will be a tutorial for it soon.

(Warning to all, Turn your speakers down, I mean up! Sorry Down.... Ha!)

Great one to Andrew and your Team.

Great effect :)

September 25th, 2010 @ 5:34 pm
hi that was really nice and impressive.But i noticed something that camera guy was more worried about capturing and framing Andrew then the blast until he moved out of the frame by himself ha ha.But the effect was really nice

I was afraid of this- With such a popularity comes all this other extraneous content that is, while nice, not the reason I used to come to this website to begin with. Came to see great, useful tutorials. Last one was from mid-August. I know the legions of Kramer fans will snicker and try their best to deflect this point, but fact is, this is great, but the tutorials are the "bread and butter" so to speak. If I want to be entertained, I can catch a movie. I come here to learn AE. Not laugh or marvel at blog posts. No bad intentions, just saying you seem to be getting caught up in the hype machine a little too much- Step away from J.J.Abrams and come back down to reality! We love the tutorials. They should be the FIRST order of business.
Sorry, don't hate me. Just trying to be honest.

Jim P Meister

And I don't mean to "Double Post", but why are people screaming for tutorials on this? Didn't you people learn from ANY of his hundreds of previous tutorials? Just because none had him in a dirt field, doesn't mean the same principles of basic effects don't apply! Heck, it doesn't even look like there's any masking of the body, so that only leaves adding layers and using your imagination. I'm sorry to rant. There, I feel better now.
Nam Vu
September 25th, 2010 @ 7:50 pm

Thats so good, it looks really realistic aswell
Chris
September 26th, 2010 @ 10:01 am
Perfect example of directing attention, nicely done, especially like the shock wave affecting the ground/grass and the attention to detail of rotoscoping or matting yourself out of it. You made my 6 month old black lab puppy pee himself.
September 26th, 2010 @ 10:10 am
Woa.....increible se ve muy realista....estaba tan concentrado que quede con el corazon palpitando rapido....
September 26th, 2010 @ 10:40 am

September 26th, 2010 @ 12:24 pm
@Jim P Meister: I think you'll probably find Mr Kramers first line of business (as far as Video Copilot is concerned) is making plug-ins and all the stock footage to SELL. While the tutorials are a fantastic resource for us they are the "carrot" to get us all visiting the site again and again... Ever noticed all the freebies Andrew gives us in the tutorials project files? How about all the mentions of Twitch, Action Essential and more recently Optical Flares? While its clear the tutorials are essentially a subtle sales pitch its still obvious that Mr Kramer enjoys making them for and I for one am grateful that he is so willing to share his incredibly creative and inspiring knowledge with us. However make no mistake that while the tutorials are probably key to the success of Video Copilot they aren't the first line of business.

Or you could just lighten up a little. I think Andrew is simply trying to show us that Video Copilot isn't just another faceless site trying to sell us stuff, it (and he) has a personality. If you don't like it just watch and learn from the FREE tutorials and quit bitching.

Sorry, don't hate me. Just trying to be honest.

Hi!, I'm from Mexico and my English is not so good, but well, I just wanna say that I can't expect to see more tutorials from you!, you are a great designer and also an actor.

Your tutorials help me a lot, don't forget the tutorials section, I hope to see more updates, thank you! And good luck!

THAT WAS TOTALLY WICKED!!! Oh wait ... I see you want meaningful responses. Well ... I have none. Perhaps that you're keeping me from work. So don't sweat it getting us the next tutorial—I just don't have the time. Let's just watch this clip again, though.

@Jim P Meister

You criticize Andrew for having his priorities skewed, somehow trying to justify that working for a world class director is less productive than consistently producing free content for a website. Perhaps you should consider rethinking your own priorities and find something more constructive to do.

On a more positive note, thanks for the smile Andrew. As with everyone else, that blast caught me off guard. The effect was also very convincing upon review.

September 26th, 2010 @ 6:50 pm
haha, awesome. I had my speakers up pretty loud to make out what you were saying, so I definitely jumped. Nice one.

I have to say, this explosion was composited well. I would like to see a tutorial for this scene. Also i was very curious to what program you used to create the Action Essentials 2 explosions (Fume Fx, Phoenix Fluid Dinamics, ect.), or were these real explosions that were filmed. I work for a school and would love to teach some students how to make this kind of thing.

Thanks
September 26th, 2010 @ 7:32 pm
Andrew, that completely awesome! You know how awesome it was? It was so awesome it made me jump big time (had my speakers turned anyway - whew). It was quite realistic - didn't see that coming at all man. Fun! (Tutorial now? LOL!)

Maybe you played with a wind effect, didn't you? nice distractor .

September 26th, 2010 @ 8:19 pm
wow that was really awesome, i wasnt really expecting it.. its like those youtube videos of some little girl popping out at you in a hidden frame and this large screaming that makes you wanna jump out of your chair like a little kid

pretty nice but one mast decrease his audio level before watch this video ;)
September 26th, 2010 @ 8:44 pm
That was freaking awsome, I new Andrew wears boxers, if you pause right after the explosion --blue striped boxers. I just stopped by because we were talking about how Sam looks like the actor playing Capone in HBOs new Boardwalk show.
Jeremy Fabiano
September 26th, 2010 @ 9:59 pm
LOL!!!!! I laughed so hard I almost wet myself :D

Good job Andrew, you kept a straight face and made it believable :D
September 26th, 2010 @ 10:08 pm
You are also a very good actor! Why don't you try joining a Hollywood movie :) :)
Marlon
September 26th, 2010 @ 10:09 pm

Bret
September 26th, 2010 @ 10:29 pm
I got suckered anyway. Thought you were going to pull the very scary face thing noticing the scare comment. Was just waiting for what image you'd come up with. BANG!!! You rat bstrd Kramer! lol. As for the tutorial? Post which past tutorials for people to watch which made this possible. Then we will be forced to be creative and come up with our own version. No pounding on the walls so far, so I guess I'm safe.

Welll, fantastic, imprressive and all that. AK is realy one of the best in this ball we call Earth. At list in AE.
The frame by frame exploring reeveals almost perfect work. The only small, maybe thiny thing is a shockwave coming from the blast and not bending the grass. I am not capàble to do the thing like this in years, but I saw this and it is just my humble observation. I learned so much from Andrew's work. Thanx, thanx, thanx.
