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…

you should be more careful. Filming in an obviously dangerous mine field.

My wife knows about you and about this site. Every time we sit down to watch FRINGE and the opening titles are on, I say, "Hey, Andrew Kramer did this." Now she says it too. So anyway my wife comes home from dog training with our other dog (the non-guard-dog) and I sit her down to watch this video. Well, she screamed, and jumped, and laughed. But that's not the best part. The best part is when she turns to me and says, "So, I guess he didn't know that bomb was going to go off?"

I explained it to her five minutes later - after I stopped laughing.

Then she says, "Well, he's a good actor"

Which gets me thinking - she watches a LOT of Sci-fi. And compared to the acting on those shows (especially the sci-fi network [i refuse to use syfy] original movies) you really are a good actor.

Sorry about the double post, but I thought you'd appreciate the compliment.

Put me down with those who turned their speakers up. Also, I have a kickin' subwoofer. Add that together, and I didn't just jump - i nearly levitated. My excellent guard dog in the other room even jumped and came in to look at me as if to say with his eyes "I quit - you handle this one on your own." He even jumped the second time I played the video. Silly dog.

Great work as always!!! Thanks for the laugh and the scare (quite fitting as I am getting psyched for Halloween)

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.

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.

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

@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.

@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.

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.

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.

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.
