I've been watching your tutorials for a few years now, and I want to say thanks a bunch for doing these. VCP is mostly how I started learning AE, and continues to teach me. Tomorrow marks my first year in LA, during which I've made a living doing VFX for TV and freelance on the side. Good times. :)
