    Press Release:
    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.


    Doors will open at 16:30 - 17:00 with the SuperMeet Digital Showcase featuring 24 software and hardware developers including Adobe, Autodesk, Avid, Blackmagic Design, Red Giant, Atomos, axle Video, B&H Photo, College Of Multimedia, Drobo, The Future Store, G-Tech, Mocha, Noise Industries, The Padcaster, Pond5, Promise Technologies, Shutterstock, SAE, Sonnet Tech, X2Pro and others. Here, attendees can enjoy a few cocktails, mingle and party with industry peers, network one on one with leading manufacturers and learn about the latest trends in collaborative editing workflows for post production and broadcast markets.


    Tickets are only €15.00 (Euros) each (includes 2 raffle tickets) for General Admission and €10.00 (Euros) for students and Teachers and are on sale online only.

      The Biased Editing of 'Big Little Lies'

      April 19, 2018, 12:48 pm
      “Editing is unique to film,” Stanley Kubrick told Rolling Stone in 1987. “You can see something from different points of view almost simultaneously, and it creates a new experience.” Big Little Lies director Jean-Marc Vallée certainly agrees. Throughout the series, Vallée uses editing as a passageway into characters’ points of view, subjectively portraying objective realities. In his detailed and insightful video essay “Editing & Empathy in Big Little Lies,” Mzak explores how Vallée uses creative, subtle editing devices to share characters’ points of view.

      How to Use Motion Graphics Templates in Premiere

      April 19, 2018, 9:10 am
      It doesn’t matter if you’re short on time, lack design skills, or just plain hate creating graphics — Premiere Pro has you covered with motion graphics templates. Whether you need a credit roll, lower thirds, titles, slates, captions, transitions, looping backgrounds, or logos, Adobe has plenty of available options. The good news? You don’t even have to leave the program to use them.

      Ready Player One Virtual prod. and Motion Capt.

      April 19, 2018, 4:59 am
      Much of Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One is set in the Oasis, a virtual reality world full of digital avatars, game and film characters, and expansive cg environments. To produce that world, the director relied heavily on a virtual production methodology overseen by Digital Domain where actors were filmed in motion capture volumes and where shots could be designed and tweaked live with a simul-cam or ‘v-cam.’

      Resolve Tutorial Import Media Composer Timelines

      April 18, 2018, 12:58 pm
      Last time, in our look at learning DaVinci Resolve, we talked about the basics of importing footage into your Media Pool. In the next three articles, I want to look at bringing in footage from the three major NLE’s, Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro X, as this is one of the more common workflows, as editors more more and more towards doing their color correcting in Resolve. Let’s get started by looking at getting your footage out of Media Composer and into Resolve.

      Is Resolve 15 now the ultimate "hero suite"?

      April 18, 2018, 4:30 am
      There have been very few attempts at hero suites in the film industry. The most notable have been SGO's Mistika and Quantel's Rio. Neither have ever been particularly accessible to independent filmmakers, primarily due to their price tags. Mistika, until very recently, was available either as a single-shot compositor in the form of MambaFX or as part of a turn-key workstation with starting prices in the six-figure range. Rio's pricing was similar.
