    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. It will be €20.00 (Euros) each at the door assuming any tickets are left as historically every SuperMeet sells out. Food (snacks) and cash bars will be available throughout the evening.

      'Arrival,' 'Dunkirk' and the Distraction of Nonlin

      July 27, 2017, 12:55 pm
      When people tell me to just turn my brain off and enjoy a movie, I wish that it were so easy. I’ve been trained to overthink films as I watch them. I have two degrees in the study of cinema. I can’t ignore what I know or how I’ve been wired to always analyze images I’m seeing on screen as they’re cut together any more than a mechanic can stare at a puttering motor and pretend not to know how to fix it.

      To help convey the “visceral realism” of Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk,” the director needed an intense soundscape for the legendary evacuation of more than 300,000 British and Allied troops under German bombardment.

      The Visual Affects of Reality

      July 27, 2017, 12:55 pm
      Two days after wrapping on the $65 million dollar budget film Pete’s Dragon, David Lowery headed home to Texas to make a small film (literally, the aspect ratio is 1.37:1) with a group of friends called A Ghost Story. The budget? $100,000. In itself, the budget is a good marker of how different the films are. And yet in both films, Lowery uses visual effects in a very calculated and affecting way, two qualities that are often lacking in effects-heavy films nowadays. Indeed, many an article has been written about the CGI overkill in Hollywood franchises. In his article for Variety on The Age of Ultron, Brian Lowry argues that “the ability to mount enormous battles featuring multiple super-powered characters, however, has become its own trap. And while the results can be visually astounding, the movies regularly feel as lifeless and mechanized as the technology responsible for bringing those visions to fruition.”

      How Schoonmaker Tamed the Beastly 'Raging Bull'

      July 27, 2017, 9:10 am
      Frequently voted one of the best films of the 1980s, Martin Scorsese's Raging Bull, the story of self-destructive pugilist Jake La Motta, was a labor of love and genius. This is particularly true on the part of the film's editor, Thelma Schoonmaker, ACE, who played the KEM editing machine like a harpsichord. A long-time Scorsese collaborator, she would win her first Academy Award for the epic.
