Sam Loya

If Video Copilot is the most popular site on the planet for After Effects tutorials, then Sam Loya must be the most recognised tutorial talent. Appearing in dozens of Andrew Kramer’s tutorials sometimes wielding a light sabre or machine gun and other times being blasted to pieces, Sam’s style has given the tutorials a professional edge. In this funny episode, learn more about Sam, his work with Video Copilot and his love of sport!

    Sam Loya is a legend! He makes the techniques Andrew is trying to teach so much easier to follow.

    Much kudos to him

    Sam Loya is the world’s greatest stunt man! …It’s rumored, in certain cirlces, that Steve Railsback modeled his character after this real life legend of the industry.

    Awesome, awesome, and more awesome. Great interview John, and thanks for interviewing such a cool guy who should be in the spotlight more often. :D GO SAM! And Andrew, if you’re watching, let Sam live in at least one tutorial. ;)

    Thanks John
    it was really fun watching this particular interview but I have enjoyed all the others too.

    Would it be ok if we suggest potential names for interview ?

    Good interview John
    I hardly recognize him.
    Not burned, not disappeared, not exploded.
    He is great guy and certainly is crucial for the many successes of the institution “Video Copilot.”
    Without Sam – no good tutorials.
    John, as always, an excellent move and interview. Thanks and a greeting.

    Sam has definitely been a part of the success of VCP. I hope to see him on the big screen, or TV someday.

    You just have to smile when you see Sam’s face, he looks like he’s constantly on the verge of cracking up laughing, I love that. Awesome interview John, good call on having Sam on unplugged. Thanks!

    I’ve always like Sam, he’s down to earth and has a great sense of humor. But now that I know that he’s not a keen sports follower and prefers to watch documentaries I like him even more ! ;-)

    I found this website the other week through a link on Rober Leger and I absolutely love it here! I first saw the interview with Rob Redman, asolutely brilliant and then I suddenly saw Sam Loya! What?!? Fantastic!

    Thank you very much, John for all these inspiring videos/interviews. Sometimes I’m just listening on the background while working with C4D….
