Teaching Art, One Video at a Time

Every once in a while, I just want to share with the world some good news and today’s blog is just that.

Videomaker began making our online video Tips and Tricks segment way back in October 2005, and our following was slow, but sure.

A while back a fan of our Tips & Tricks series showed us how he did a great job incorporating two of our tricks in one video (all in one continuous shot to boot).

KIAN GOT HIT BY A BUS!!! in response to two of our Special FX videos: Hit by a Car AND Ghostly Special Effects

I love it! This made me feel like we’re really doing our job, when we can teach these and our readers can have fun applying them.

We love hearing about our readers and viewers who have created videos in response to our tutorials, or have tricks of their own they did based on ideas we supplied.

Please check out this list below of other videos our fans uploaded in response to our Tips and Tricks videos, they’re pretty cool. Please be kind in your responses, many of these video producers are just starting out, and our job is to encourage and support… with constructive critique.

Some of these are videos the producers made before they saw our Tips & Tricks segment and are offering our viewers another look at a different way to make them, other videos are directly from learning how to do the effect through our tutorials. Enjoy.
