For those in the video production industry, Andrew Kramer is a name that most of us know and admire. We use his plugins and fantastic knowledge on a daily basis (videocopilot.net). Whether we need to replace a cloudy sky with a clear one, key out an actor on a green screen, add lens flares to a shot for dramatic effect or even create an animated 3D logo with his plugin element 3D, we continually return to his website and devour his world class knowledge and techniques.

As well as creating fantastic tutorials and plugins on his website, Andrew works closely with JJ. Abrams on feature films. His latest and biggest project was creating the ending title sequence for the blockbuster film Star Trek 2.

Recently, he was invited to do the keynote speech at the After Effects World Conference 2014. It is a very entertaining and inspirational speech. Check it out above.
