IBC SuperMeet showcase for editors

Apple-based video editors visiting IBC can network, find out about the latest technology, win stuff, and have a pretty good night out at the FCPUG SuperMeet.

The Third Annual Final Cut Pro User Group Amsterdam SuperMeet takes place on Sunday, 12 September at the Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky in Dam Square, and promises to be "the single largest gathering of Final Cut Pro, Avid and Adobe users, gurus and digital filmmakers in Europe during 2010."

There will be user-driven presentations, including show and tells from European filmmakers, new ideas and product demonstrations, Final Cut Studio tips and tricks, and the seemingly endless raffle with lots of prizes.

"The hotel's not only easy to get to, but it's a beautiful venue to visit and network. And SuperMeets are all about networking," said Michael Horton (pictured above), SuperMeet co-producer and head of the Los Angeles Final Cut Pro User Group (

New this year is the Open Screen Theatre, giving filmmakers and digital content creators a ten-minute chance to show what they can do.

  1. Yes, last day to save a few pennies. This meet up is a zoo of new ideas and a great place to network. Learned such a lot last year and was amazed at how people wanted to share tips and tricks. The giveaways are amazing. Just remember to come in the right frame of mind - you're there because you want to be!! Enthusiastic people at this meeting come away with the loot. Recluses will end up crying :-)
