    Hi Guys,

    Much love from London.

    I am still very much a beginner but you have really kicked started me into using After Effects. I was scared for years!.

    I have never been interested in blogs or forums, but I have have signed up to yours and really enjoy it and have bought a few products too which are great.

    I have been bored with graphics for years, now I have a keen interest again!

    PS if you wanna check out some good bass playing have a look at my bands video plus it has the first little bit of after effects I ever did on the guitar solo!!!!

    Rock on!!!

Andrew Kramer, you are a superhero!!
Also, where can I order that gun?
I would love to shoot some action movies but don't know where to get good gun props.
In Australia, anyone else know? can order from america and get it shipped...
December 15th, 2010 @ 2:20 pm

December 15th, 2010 @ 2:28 pm
Crazy... it has been already 5 years! I watch your tutorials from the beginning and am very grateful for this inspiring tips you teached us! Keep on rocking the visual effects!
December 15th, 2010 @ 2:31 pm
Bigger and better all the time! Congrats VCP on a great year!
December 15th, 2010 @ 2:32 pm
Love it! However - the one thing I wish you'd teach us is... How do you make your "Locked off" shots in Search & Destroy look hand-held? Whenever I try it looks well.. er.. "Pants!"

PS: Nice Bass & 6 string set - are you guys touring next year? ;-)
December 15th, 2010 @ 2:39 pm
Wow, I simply love it, you are awesome. Merry X-mas dear VideoCoPilot-Team. You changed my life :-).

all the best from Vienna
December 15th, 2010 @ 2:48 pm

So sentimental *sniff*
Great job from Canada!
December 15th, 2010 @ 2:50 pm
Yea thank you guys sooo much, if it weren't for you guys, I would have never learned After Effects!!!! You have changed my life, and I have found my passion!!!!! Thank you!!!!!
December 15th, 2010 @ 2:53 pm
The best part of this video was the scene right at the end where your friends are sitting on the car and you're all laughing and smiling. This is why we do this stuff.
December 15th, 2010 @ 2:55 pm
I was laughing tears - love the vcp humor!

December 15th, 2010 @ 2:58 pm
Yeah..that was a greatfull year after all...I started learning AE later then C4D...shot with my friend fake movie trailer reflecting most common B horror scenes ( after watching this blog post I almost shed a tear...keep that way AK
December 15th, 2010 @ 3:14 pm
I read it again, so I found some mistakes (grateful, friends)
Trailer was filmed in my native language (Czech), but you have already added English subtitles. So enjoy!
December 15th, 2010 @ 3:14 pm
Great Job!!
Greetings from Poland:)
December 15th, 2010 @ 3:16 pm
I Still remember my first visit to Video Copilot back in the day when I was looking how to create the lightsaber effect :D

Thanks to VCP, I can now create stuff like this:

December 15th, 2010 @ 3:27 pm
What ever happened to the hot girl?
    December 16th, 2010 @ 2:18 am
    She was...
    Way too sexy for Sam Loya, too sexy for Copilot, too sexy for it, yeah... :D
    December 17th, 2010 @ 5:44 am
    I was ALMOST wondering why no one posted something about that girl. stunning!

    Andrew Kramer is one funny guy, or maybe he is actually 2, I wonder how his brain works.
    Great job!

    Cheers from Holland!
December 15th, 2010 @ 3:38 pm
You guys are awesome. Thanks for the tips - I have seen sites that make people pay for tutorials that would inspire to be one-nineteenth the awesomeness of the AE TUTS you have here PLUS, you guys are way better, and cheaper. Too. Like 100% less the cost.
December 15th, 2010 @ 3:39 pm
Thank you all.
December 15th, 2010 @ 3:47 pm

December 15th, 2010 @ 4:16 pm
nice.. man... i learned a lot from this too.. lol..
thanx again
December 15th, 2010 @ 4:28 pm
Andrew K you're an awful bass player (shall you find some bass tutorials?? ;-) !! Sam , thumbs up, nice voice ....
Seriously you're doing such a nice work, guys.
And mainly by sharing your knowledge and enthusiasm. it's just refreshing, and healthy .
I learned a lot from your work, first as a copyist and slowly adapting it to my work.
I don't get every subtle part of the job, but as a new director it helps me knowing about what today's compositing can be.
And it's fun , which is for me a basic for pedagogy ( and i'm not a kid anymore...huh...not sure about that.).
Anyway, what's the next step ?
Sure you can be the next SF/COMIC "top of the pops" director. (not joking there)

Big kisses from Paris
And all the best

PS: It's ok for the bass playing, i'm a terrible bass player too but i'll never give it up !
December 15th, 2010 @ 4:32 pm
okay you know we're gonna need a tutorial for that last cliffy look effect you had in there
December 15th, 2010 @ 4:40 pm
Wow!!! That was amazing blog show. You guys are the best!
December 15th, 2010 @ 4:48 pm
loved that lindsey buckingham made it on...
December 15th, 2010 @ 5:03 pm
The biggest moment. How can I point one out, when I can't even point out anything bad.
Yeah, I'm still waiting for that AE2 video you've been talking about, the one used for the DVD tutorial. Is that even coming? Cause I'm still waiting for that to be the biggest moment!
December 15th, 2010 @ 5:04 pm
That was great. Looks like you guys have a lot of fun. Great 2010, guys. It gets better all the time.

I've been learning a lot from you and one of this day I decide to grab my camera and star practicing everything from your tutorials.

This is some of the video that I'm talking about.

In 2011 I'm going to continue doing more.

Thank you again.
December 15th, 2010 @ 6:00 pm

Happy Holidays!

December 15th, 2010 @ 6:14 pm
Sam has a great voice and you both play well together. I really enjoyed both the songs you played, I'd like it if you played more often on the site or maybe upload some clips to Youtube.

Anyway, thanks for maintaing such a great site Andrew I'm very grateful to you for that because I can safely say I'd know nothing about After Effects or design if not fot you and your wondeful site. I loved the addition of the Blog Show this year and I was wondering is there any chance of getting some regularity into how often it's shown in the next year? I missed it deeply since the last one.

Thanks, from Ireland, and heres to another 5 years of Video Copilot
December 15th, 2010 @ 6:27 pm

Andrew, do you really shoot?

I noticed when you picked up the gun, you were "fingering", a technique used to place your trigger finger off the trigger and along the side of the gun to prevent accidental discharges until you're ready to commit to firing.

Bravisimo. Heck, I've seen triple-AAA movie titles where they always show cops running in with their fingers on the triggers. Most Law Enforcement agencies don't risk that.
December 15th, 2010 @ 8:24 pm
WHOA! Sam's like such a great singer! i srsly loved the whole blog show........esp the song part of it :D love u guys n keep doing the good work....... :)

December 16th, 2010 @ 12:58 am
You know what,.. this site really reminds me of my dreams.
All I wanted in life is too fly...
And since I cant do that by just "Imagining" or waiting for the wind to fly me up to the sky, I guess it's much better to just take a good shot of me, put in into AE, then do the good stuffs for it...

anyways, happy holidays to you guys...

to Sam, its alright to have some bruises after those breathtaking, pain giving, mind cracking things that Andrew did to you... hehehehehe

to Andrew, thanks for those tutorial, man.
I'd like to extend my regards to your baby... hehehehe

"Maligayang Pasko at Manigong Bagong Taon" from here in the Philippines...

Thank you for a kick-ass year of inspiring and inovative tutorials that just keep on opening doors into the world of stuning visual effects. Almost everything i know about after effects i lærned from here and it impresses me that you continually come up with new ideas and/or new and cool ways to improove old effects. I check on the site every day, waiting impatiently for a new and exiciting tutorial, that will teach me something new. There is no better tutorial site than this. And thnx for the songs, they cheered me up. Keep up the amazing work. A big salute from denmark, and rock on, video copilot, rock on.
December 16th, 2010 @ 3:17 am
so creative... i like it
December 16th, 2010 @ 3:21 am

December 16th, 2010 @ 3:24 am
I know it wasn't the idea of the show (or was it?), but is there any chance of getting the full versions of both songs by Sam put on here to download? Seriously, the dude has tone.
December 16th, 2010 @ 3:26 am

So... Now my first year of enjoying everything you guys do is coming to an end and I am more than grateful for everything I have learned this year. It is more than I hoped for when visiting for the very first time some time around March or something. I have yet to create something not embarassing to show to YOU guys... Maybe next year... Who knows...
Anyway, I can't wait for 2011 and the new stuff you create and teach and everything,

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Germany

When you say "saying goodbye video copilot style", you don't mean that you're shutting down the website, do you? Because I'd be sad if you did.
December 16th, 2010 @ 3:26 pm
Love everything about VideoCopilot. Can't watch this just yet I'm at work.

That was fantastic! I really liked those close-ups at the beginning as well as that terrific wrap up of all the things and people you've blown up over the year.

Also, the middle was very informative. :-)
December 16th, 2010 @ 8:57 pm

Thats what i call Public Service!
Thank you so much for...everything :)
December 16th, 2010 @ 9:38 pm
I think I've laughed harder during Video CoPilot tutorials than when watching actual comedies. My fav VCP moment (not 2010 specific) was when Andrew announced the birth of his baby and said that one shouldn't waste a minute in life... and then proceeded to play Minesweeper!! LOL!!

Kinda missed the fact that there wasn't a "someone's gotta die" tutorial at the end of October, but we can always hope for next year :)

Keep doing what you guys are doing! You're an amazing influence in the industry!

December 16th, 2010 @ 10:39 pm
Video Copilot is just Great. The tutorials are verry good quality, video and audio. It's just easy to ubderstand. Thank you Andrew for the tutorials. Thank you VideoCopilot.

But thanks a mill for all the great videoes, and free stuff you are making, bought Action movie essential 2, and I use it in almost all my compisits.

You always have these cool and quality soundFX for weapons, any suggestions were to find these on the web?

Cheers from a big fan from Norway

Man, such a great way to end the year: with a great video

I am confused though, I have not seen every tutorial video so maybe I missed some of those clips, but I didn't recognize some of them from the montage at the end. The scene where Sam attempts to steal the idol (Indiana Jones style) and his burn off. Plus there was a clip of a guy in a greenman suit, and I don't recall seeing that before. Anyone ID them?
