Andrew Kramer

Andrew Kramer

As a freelance artist at age 20, Andrew began to work on the Video Copilot website in his spare time from his apartment in Southern California. The website started with a handful of short After Effects tutorials that were featured on the Creative Cow community. His unusual training style and off-beat humor was a refreshing voice in the training world. Andrew continued to press the limits of After Effects which ignited a passion to design his own software and plug-ins. Today, Video Copilot plug-ins like Element 3D and Optical Flares are among industry-standard tools used by large visual FX studios and individual designers. The sites online presence led to collaborations for Andrew to work with major companies and even the unique opportunity to work with Director J.J. Abrams on many Film and Television Projects such as Star Trek, Super 8, Fringe, and Almost Human.
