Surprise video. I love surprise videos.

edit - Man, I went to school for graphic design and 3/4s of the way through I thought to myself "God, this kind of sucks." You guys make it look fun. Guess it depends on who you work/design for.

I think this is my new favourite feature. Hearing about the whole design process from the beginning is super interesting.

Plus I can definitely relate to spending way too much time looking for/creating perfect images!

It is, but I hear there's good money in it. Also, realizing that I am in way over my head in terms of being a video guy, college degree be damned.

Haha! This is awesome! Love Photoshop and After Effects.

Do you guys ever find yourself in need of 3D work being done? Have those programs around if you did?

I spent a solid summer learning lightwave, but haven't really had to use it much. Vinny knows a smattering of Maya and we have it in office, but in general we don't have a lot of time to make things too complex. That's why we mostly stick with the PSD to AE format. Normally you have a full time guy on 3d and a separate full time guy on animations. We usually have to rush through everything.

This is great info! The thing I would love is a video podcast of the game of the year deliberations, just to see Jeff & Brad inches away of killing each other over Skyrim & Saints Row 3.

As a fan that spends most of his days at work with After Effects/Photoshop/Maya on one monitor and Giant Bomb on the other, I really dig this feature. I wish I had the freedom to bust out insane "SPACE EGYPT" ideas in my video work.

It's amazing how much work went into this. I loved the FMV intros when I first saw them, but knowing how much went into making them brings me to a whole new level of appreciation.

Sometimes on the outside looking in, you assume that any knucklehead with Photoshop could do the same thing. Once you know how much actually goes into it, you realize how talented these guys are, and how non-talented you are. All this in addition to being wonderful people to listen to in podcasts!
