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!”
Rounding out the evening will be a Show and Tell by a local Amsterdam filmmaker and the always wild "World Famous Raffle," where currently over €31,000 (Euros) worth of valuable prizes will be handed out to dozens of lucky winners.

Aaron Sorkin has long been known for great writing and smart TV drama. On Molly’s Game, he steps into the role of writer/director and collaborated on the project with three editors: Elliot Graham, Alan Baumgarten, ACE and Josh Schaeffer. The film was recently nominated for an ACE Eddie Award for Best Edited Feature Film – Dramatic. For this interview, we talked to Baumgarten and Shaeffer. Baumgarten has edited since the early 1990s on TV series starting with Eerie, Indiana and on features: The Lawnmower Man, Meet the Fockers, The Heartbreak Kid, Zombieland, Joy, and American Hustle (for which he won an ACE EDDIE and was nominated for an Oscar). He also won an Emmy for his work on the series, Recount. Schaeffer has edited numerous features and TV series. He was an additional editor on Kong: Skull Island and is editing the upcoming Pacific Rim: Uprising. The other editor, Elliot Graham, had previously edited the film Steve Jobs, which Sorkin had written, and other films, like Milk, Superman Returns and was additional editor on X-Men 2 and Amazing Spider-man 2.

Capturing good audio is just as (if not more) important as capturing good images. Lavalier and shotgun mics are great options because they allow you to not only get close to the source of your audio but they are designed to stay out of or hidden inside the frame. However, if you don't have either of these types of mics (in which case, you should definitely think about investing in them), an inexpensive handheld recorder, like the Zoom H1 or H4n, works really well as long as you know how to position and conceal it in your scene. Here to give you some tips on how to do that is Darious Britt of D4Darious.

When a film has the remarkable story of love and humanity that The Shape of Water has, it’s hard to pay attention to the other cinematic elements that help bring it to life. Guillermo del Toro creates a wonderful world for the audience to float in with the beautiful look of the film and its endearing characters, but something else struck me when I saw The Shape of Water in theaters. I couldn’t put my finger on what made me so immersed in each scene, but then I realized it wasn’t the scenes themselves. It was the transitions between them that made this a moviegoing experience unlike any I have had before.

The Visual Effects Society has announced its nominations for the 16th Annual VES Awards, and Blade Runner 2049 and War for the Planet of the Apes unsurprisingly came out on top. The two films scored seven nominations each, Despicable Me 3 for some reason topped the animated feature nominees with five, and Game of Thrones leads the TV field with 11 nominations overall.

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: After Effects renders are slow. Complex shots progress sluggishly, so you open up Activity Monitor or Task Manager (ya nerd) and stare at CPU levels flying at half-mast. It makes the days longer and the deadlines tighter, and you just know there has to be another option.
