The most involved iPhone app trailer we’ve seen (plus boobies)

In the Adobe After Effects world, Andrew Kramer is a bit of a legend. Many is the time I have perused his tutorial site Video Copilot and completely ripped him off found inspiration for my own projects. Well, in addition to cranking out awesome tutorials and plug-ins for After Effects, Andrew has now made the leap into the iPhone app arena with his “face changing” app Demon Cam.
