Video Copilot: Demon Cam tutorial series

The guys at Video Copilot have recently finished their iPhone app "Demon Cam", which is a fairly standard face morphing software. The reason I decided to post about this in particular is for the tongue-in-cheek, over the top promo and tutorials they created to accompany it's release.

The promo was created not only to promote the app, but as an opportunity to create a series of making-of videos and tutorials so viewers can recreate the effects used. Seeing as this was such a good collection of tutorials, I thought I'd archive all of the related content here.
