    October 24, 2011, 2:34 pm
    Creative networking filmmaker gala to bring Oscar and BAFTA award-winning editor Walter Murch to Boston
    The agenda has been set for the Second Annual Boston SuperMeet, to take place on Thursday, Oct 27, 2011 at the Stuart Street Playhouse, Radisson Hotel Boston in Boston, MA. Featuring Oscar and BAFTA winning film and sound editor Walter Murch, Andrew Weisblum, A.C.E. (BLACK SWAN) for Avid and Jem Schofield (theC47.com) on behalf of Canon, this SuperMeet promises to be the single largest gathering of editors, gurus and digital filmmakers in the Northeast this year. Tickets are on sale online only and can be purchased at the SuperMeet web site.




    Los Angeles CA / Boston MA - The agenda has been set for the Second Annual Boston SuperMeet, to take place on Thursday, October 27, 2011 at the Stuart Street Playhouse, Radisson Hotel Boston in Boston, MA. The SuperMeet stage show will begin at 7:00PM and continue until 11:00PM. Doors open at 3:30pm for the "SuperMeet Digital Showcase" featuring over 15 software and hardware developers. Tickets are on sale online only for $10.00 each and $7.00 for students and Teachers with valid ID. The Boston SuperMeet marks the last city stop in celebration of the Tenth Anniversary of SuperMeets in 2011 and is expected to sell out as historically every SuperMeet sells out.



    Scheduled to appear on the SuperMeet stage will be Oscar and BAFTA winning film and sound editor Walter Murch, who has recently completed post production on director Philip Kaufman's HEMINGWAY AND GELLHORN, starring Nicole Kidman, Clive Owen and Robert Duvall.











    This will be the first public appearance by Walter Murch since the launch of Final Cut Pro X. It is expected Murch will share his thoughts on Final Cut Pro X, but more importantly give Boston SuperMeet attendees a rare chance to listen to and learn from Walter on the craft of editing itself.



    In addition to Murch, Avid will feature Andrew Weisblum, A.C.E., who will discuss his editorial workflow on BLACK SWAN. Weisblum was also editor on THE WRESTLER, and supervising editor on FANTASTIC MR. FOX, among other credits. Avid is also slated to make a very special announcement.









    Canon has just announced the Canon EOS-1D X DSLR, Canon's latest DSLR redesigned from the inside out, and presenting on behalf of Canon will be filmmaker Jem Schofield of theC47.com, who will talk about Canon's new DSLR, which features an 18-megapixel full-frame Canon CMOS sensor, Dual DIGIC 5+ Imaging Processors, a third dedicated DIGIC 4 Imaging Processor for metering and AF control, a completely new 61-Point autofocus, 14-bit A/D data conversion, fast shooting up to 12 frames per second (FPS), Full HD video recording and much more. Jem is an engaging presenter and is certain to share some interesting news at the SuperMeet as well about his DSLR workflow and on the present and future state of Canon EOS filmmaking.












    Colorist Alexis Van Hurkman, who spoke on behalf of Blackmagic Design at the recent London SuperMeet, returns to the stage to share new workflow and support for Final Cut Pro X on Version 8.1 of DaVinci Resolve for Mac. Hurkman will discuss how, in the last nine months, DaVinci Resolve from Blackmagic Design has changed his color correction practice. In the process he'll show off a few of his favorite Resolve workflow and color correction features in examples from projects he's worked on this last year, which includes the television pilot NUCLEAR FAMILY and the feature CARGO, and give insight based on years of experience grading and finishing broadcast content for The History Channel, for the BBC, and for The Discovery Channel Network.











    Marc-André Ferguson, the SMOKE Industry Manager at Autodesk, will demonstrate groundbreaking new finishing workflow for SMOKE on Mac OSX using the latest Thunderbolt enabled MacBook Pros from Apple and a Promise Technology Pegasus Thunderbolt RAID. Ferguson, a long-time Final Cut Pro editor and Adobe After Effects artist, will demonstrate how accessible Autodesk SMOKE really is, how to blast past the apparent steep learning curve it has and hit the ground running to bring the power of SMOKE on the road.












    Rounding out the evening will be the always wild and fun "World Famous Raffle," where over $50,000 of dollars worth of valuable filmmaker-related prizes will be handed out to dozens of lucky winners, including a fully licensed copy of Autodesk SMOKE on Mac OSX (value $14,995).





    While the main SuperMeet presentation will begin at 7pm, doors are scheduled to open at 3.30pm with the SuperMeet Digital Showcase featuring over 20 filmmaker-related software and hardware developers including Adobe, AJA, Apogee Digital, Autodesk, Avid, Blackmagic Design, Boris FX, Canon, EditShare, Fast Forward Video, Genarts, G-Tech, HB Communications, Imagine Magazine, JVC Professional, Matrox, Manhattan Edit Workshop, Noise Industries, Promise Technology, Raven Research, Talamas Broadcast, and more. 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 on sale online only at $10.00 each plus ticket fee (includes 2 raffle tickets) for Adults and $7.00 for students and Teachers, or $20.00 at the door. Complimentary and tasty hot hors d'oeuvres and cash bars will be available throughout the evening. To purchase tickets online, directions, transportation options, and a current list of raffle prizes, visit the Boston SuperMeet web site.





    Supermeet





    SuperMeets are gatherings of Final Cut, Adobe, Avid and Autodesk editors, gurus and digital filmmakers from within the US, Europe and the world over who use or want to learn to use Macintosh-based workflows and solutions in a collaborative workflow environment. Final Cut Pro User Groups (FCPUG) started as a grassroots movement as part of the Final Cut Pro User Group Network to connect Apple Final Cut Pro editors at a local level. Now in its tenth year, the producers behind the SuperMeet have harnessed the energy of local chapters globally and turned SuperMeets into the industry's most influential user-organized series of global events focusing on collaborative production and post-production workflows. SuperMeets are held annually in San Francisco, Austin, Las Vegas, Amsterdam, London and Boston and feature filmmaker user-driven demos of new products, collaborative production and post production workflows and filmmaker show and tells, including a SuperMeet Digital Showcase featuring hardware and software developers providing workflow solutions for digital filmmakers and content creators.

      John Carpenter Is Scoring The Halloween Sequel, An

      April 21, 2018, 4:22 pm
      One of the key ways to make a successful sequel/reboot to a beloved franchise is to get as many people who were involved with the original attached to the new movie. We see this all the time on the TV side with reboots, as having the people who made the series so successful in the first place helps give the fans confidence in the new installment. The same is very much true for the new Halloween movie, which has series co-creator John Carpenter on board as an executive producer. Carpenter won't be directing, but he'll still have one other important job: composing the soundtrack.

      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.
