Creative Pro User Group Network Announces the Fifth Annual CPUG Amsterdam SuperMeet
SuperMeet Agenda to showcase exciting new technology and forward-thinking philosophy for today’s visual storytellers.
Los Angeles CA / Boston MA – The stage show agenda has now been set for the Fifth Annual CPUG Amsterdam SuperMeet, to take place during IBC2012 on Sunday, 9 September 2012 at the Hotel Krasnapolsky in the heart of Amsterdam. This “SuperMeet” promises to be the single largest gathering of Final Cut, Adobe, Avid, Autodesk editors, and Digital Filmmakers, Gurus and users during IBC2012. Tickets to the The Amsterdam SuperMeet can be purchased at the SuperMeet web site. Doors open at 16:30 – 17:00.
Scheduled to appear on stage will be Michael Cioni, CEO of Light Iron Digital in Hollywood, CA. Cioni will lead a discussion in what SuperMeet producers Daniel Bérubé and Michael Horton say, “might be the most important topic we have ever done at a SuperMeet.” Bérubé and Horton add, “Cioni will talk about the changing ecosystem of filmmaking and how it has, and will impact all filmmakers and post production creatives. Everything is changing and if you do not adapt, if you do not embrace these changes, chances are you will be left behind. It will be a ‘must hear’ talk by Cioni that he will premiere at our SuperMeet.”
Blackmagic Design will invite award-winning cinematographer John Brawley on stage to show off the new Blackmagic Cinema Camera and to share his experiences in shooting with this revolutionary new camera and his post workflow using the new DaVinci Resolve 9.
Technical Marketing Manager Ken La Rue and Smoke Product Evangelist Marc-André Ferguson of Autodesk will show off the all-in-one workflow of the all new Smoke 2013. Ken and Marc-André will walk you through a “larger than life” project that involves green screen, keying, tracking, color correction, and of course editing.
Simon Walker returns to the SuperMeet stage to demonstrate three of Red Giant Software’s exciting new releases: Trapcode Mir, PluralEyes and Knoll Light Factory.
Adam Green of Avid will share the company’s exciting announcements from IBC (it’s “super-secret” right now). Then Filmlight’s Martin Tlaskal will showcase the power of the Media Composer AVX2 plug-in architecture with its latest Baselight for Avid plug-in.
Al Mooney of Adobe will update everyone on Premiere Pro CS6, and share a sneak peak at some very exciting future technology. Bérubé and Horton add, “We can’t say much, but trust us – you don’t want to miss this!”
