    AGENDA ANNOUNCED FOR 2ND ANNUAL BOSTON SUPERMEET

    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.

      How to Get the Best Results in Slow Motion in Prem

      May 25, 2017, 3:41 am
      Today's cameras, even the ones in smartphones, are capable of recording high frame rates at pretty decent resolutions (at least 720p). What does this mean? Slow motion for pretty much everyone! However, a lot of entry level cameras only get as high as 60 fps, which is definitely slow(er) motion than the standard 24 fps and 30 fps, but it certainly doesn't produce that real buttery smooth, honey-like slow mo you typically see in today's videos.

      Understanding The Tracking Options In AE

      May 24, 2017, 4:07 am
      If you’re a even a moderate After Effects user, chances are you’ve used the tracking tools. Now, After Effects has multiple options for motion tracking, like using MochaAE and the built-in 3d Camera Tracker. However, many people still opt for the old school tracker that has been in After Effects for as long as I can remember.

      Luma Pictures had to look at some pretty horrible

      May 23, 2017, 4:16 pm
      For Alien: Covenant, Ridley Scott’s newest deep dive into his Alien universe, Luma Pictures was called upon to create visual effects for several sequences. The studio researched and realized the tiny spores that inhabit some of the characters, including via ear canals – just getting that right required some pretty grotesque reference. Luma also delivered some other-wordly lamps inside the lab of the synthetic David. They rounded out the work with set extensions and graphics. And they killed James Franco.
