FCPUG IBC SuperMeet on Sunday

The Fourth Annual Final Cut Pro User Group Amsterdam SuperMeet takes place next Sunday (11 September), to coincide with IBC. It will be at the Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky in Dam Square, with talks and demonstrations from filmmakers, colourists, and editors. 

Speakers include: Michael Wohl, one of the creators of the original Final Cut Pro and an authority on Final Cut Pro X, which he will demonstrate; Adobe's Jason Levine (pictured above at a previous SuperMeet) talking about Adobe Premiere Pro 5.5 for FCP editors; film editor Eddie Hamilton describing the workflow on X-Men: First Class and Kick-Ass, using Avid Media composer; and Autodesk's Jim Geduldick with the latest on Smoke on Mac OS X.

London-based colourist, Dado Valentic, who graded BAFTA winner Flying with Monsters, and the world’s first 3D opera Carmen in 3D, as well as 3D commercials for Panasonic, Red Bull and Nintendo, will discuss his workflow using the latest DaVinci Resolve 8, from Blackmagic Design. He will talk particularly about his work on fashion promos for the likes of Christian Dior and Zara. "The SuperMeet events are always really exciting and it will be great to show how I’ve used Resolve 8 to grade my latest projects," said Valentic.
DSLR Guru, Philip Bloom (pictured above at a previous SuperMeet), will show his best creations from a year that has seen him work for George Lucas, and shoot with many of the most talked about cameras, such as Panasonic's AF101, the Sony PMW-F3 and Red's Epic. Bloom will also be holding an Amsterdam DSLR Meetup, on Saturday (10 September), at 19:00, to talk about filmmaking, DSLRs, and anything else that comes up. RSVP at his Facebook Meetup Event Page
