FCPUG Network Announces 8th Annual NAB FCPUG SuperMeet

Thousands will gather at industry’s most popular symposium on April 21, 2009

Los Angeles, CA / Boston, MA – February 23, 2009 - The Final Cut Pro User Group Network today announced the 8th Annual NAB FCPUG SuperMeet will be held at the Rio Hotel (Las Vegas, NV) on Tuesday, April 21, 2009. Expected to be one of the largest gatherings of editors, filmmakers, and digital content creators during the NAB 2009 show, the 8th Annual NAB SuperMeet provides an open forum for attendees to discuss the rapidly changing landscape of postproduction and broadcast, talk one-on-one with industry leading digital media technology developers, and network with peers.

"The SuperMeet is always and has been always the biggest party in town during NAB week," says Michael Horton, SuperMeet co-producer and founder of the Los Angeles Final Cut Pro User Group. "It has become THE social gathering place for editors and digital content creators looking to network, inspire, learn from each other and just have a good time."

Final Cut Pro User Groups (FCPUG) started as a grassroots movement to connect Apple Final Cut Pro Editors at a local level. Now in its 8th year, the producers behind the SuperMeet have harnessed the energy of the local chapters and turned FCPUG into the industry’s most influential user organized event with an impressive number of members turning out for each SuperMeet.

SuperMeets are held in conjunction with industry trade shows around the world; MacWorld (San Francisco CA, USA), NAB (Las Vegas NV USA) and IBC (Amsterdam, The Netherlands). The user-driven format offers engaging presentations and training by community members and industry technologists. Equally popular are the presentations from community member videographers and filmmakers.

"These SuperMeet events provide the postproduction and broadcast community an opportunity to not only learn about the latest technology trends, but to connect with each other to discuss experiences and opportunities within the industry in a social setting that is both educational and fun. This is especially important in today’s tough economic climate where staying connected and networking is more important than ever,” comments Daniel Berube, SuperMeet co-producer and founder of the Boston Final Cut Pro User Group.

The 8th Annual NAB SuperMeet will also host the "FCP Trade Show". Over 25 developers and manufacturers will showcase the latest in digital media technology. Attendees will have the opportunity to talk one on one with leading manufacturers about the latest innovations for postproduction and broadcast markets.

SUPERMEET REGISTRATION INFORMATION
Tickets will go on sale February 23, 2009 for $10.99 USD per ticket. For more details about the 8th Annual NAB SuperMeet, please visit; FCPUG NAB 2009 SuperMeet.

FCPUG SuperMeet gets a SuperBooth at NAB

There IS a reason to go to NAB. All four days.

This year for the very first time we are introducing the FCPUG Network Community "SuperBooth." Booth #SL10129 will be located in the lower-lower South Hall conveniently near the Blackmagic Design booth, the food area and public restrooms. The booth will serve as an extension of the the Eighth Annual NAB FCPUG SuperMeet, to be held in the Amazon Ballroom at the Rio Hotel and Casino Las Vegas on Tuesday night, April 21st. We intend to make it the social gathering spot for all FCS and Digital moviemakers who find themselves in need of learning and connecting. Since Apple won’t be at NAB we hope to fill a bit of the void.

The SuperBooth will have something different going on every hour every day. There will be the daily “Guru Hour” where you can get all your FCS problems solved. Sit or stand awhile to view presentations of workflow ideas, show and tells, new products, and much much more. We are just getting started on what to do with this thing.

What about the SuperMeet?
The SuperMeet will once again be the single largest social gathering of digital filmmakers, content creators and FCS Gurus and users at the NAB Show. There will be user driven presentations from Blackmagic Design, JVC, Adobe and many others. We will present revolutionary new ideas on workflow with Final Cut Studio. There will be show and tells, tips and tricks and yes, the World famous Raffle where we will give away once again, tens of thousands of dollars worth of prizes to dozens of lucky winners. Full agenda will be posted in April.

Tickets are only $10.99 each and will remain that way until April 1, 2009. After that it’s $15.00. That gets you 2 raffle tickets, the chance to hang with 1000+ of your peers, and see a bunch of solutions that may change the way you work with Final Cut Studio and digital filmmaking. You may also meet someone who will change your life.

More info on the SuperMeet including current list of raffle prizes and where to buy tickets can be found on the SuperMeet web page. It is updated daily so keep checking in and buy your tickets now.

Some traditions are worth endless repetition.

Not only will I be making my annual contribution to the Las Vegas economy - but I talked Linda into the adventure as well.

So Chris, the first round's on us.

We'll hoist it in memory of the four legged friend who's loss took you away from the previous Supermeet and include a toast to our Sammy, blind, nearly deaf, way too old for the pet actuaries - but who's still around with grace, a great attitude and the life lesson that the longer you're around, the more important napping becomes.

Aha. You're a good man, Doug. Consider it done. You'll be an even better man if you can lend me a shoulder to lean on as I stagger out of there. Two years ago my knees hurt for days after all that crawling.

AGENDA now set!

Tenth Anniversary of Final Cut Pro, World Premiere Announcements and User-Driven Workflows Spark NAB Evening Social Highlight

Los Angeles, CA / Boston, MA - April 8, 2009 - The Final Cut Pro User Group Network (FCPUG Network) have announced a sneak peak at the agenda for the 8th Annual NAB FCPUG SuperMeet, to be held in the Amazon Ballroom at the Rio Hotel (Las Vegas, NV) on Tuesday, April 21, 2009 beginning at 4:30PM. It is expected this event will be the largest gathering of Final Cut Pro Users and digital content creators and filmmakers during the 2009 NAB Show.

"We've got something for everyone," says Michael Horton, SuperMeet co-producer and founder of the Los Angeles Final Cut Pro User Group. "This is one of the strongest agendas of user driven presentations we have had in years."

"Our SuperMeet marks the tenth anniversary of Final Cut Pro and much of what you will see on stage has never been seen before," added Daniel Berube, SuperMeet co-producer and founder of the Boston Final Cut Pro User Group. "We will showcase brand new workflows for Final Cut Pro as well as premiere exciting new products."

The agenda will feature breathtaking HD footage as screened by documentary filmmaker Arthur C. Smith, director of the acclaimed film, "Ice Bears of the Beaufort." From tapeless HD acquisition to post, Art will show how he is bringing the digital age to Alaska's Arctic Frontier by using the tools of digital cinema to produce this award-winning film.

Over 3 years in the making, "Playing For Change: Peace through Music" is the second film born out of an idea that director Mark Johnson had while watching two Monks play music in a NYC Subway 10 years ago. It is a powerful documentary that takes us around the globe then brings us together through the simple but transformative power of music. Jonathan Walls, co-director and editor, will present.

"Digital Guy" Bruce Nazarian will introduce for the very first time in public a simple workflow to author replicable Blu-ray discs entirely on a Macintosh.

Craig Yanagi of JVC and Tim Dashwood of DVInfo.net will give a hands-on look at "instant editing" in Final Cut Pro using native QuickTime files captured with the new JVC GY-HM700 Camcorder.

Karl Soule of Adobe will show off the newly announced roundtripping workflow involving direct import of Final Cu Pro project files into Creative Suite 4 Production Premium on both Mac and PC.

Final Cut Studio Guru Larry Jordan will give one of the first public demonstrations of the highly anticipated new music creation plug-in from SmartSound that works directly inside of Final Cut Pro. Post Production Supervisor Jeremy Garchow will show off a never before seen Final Cut Pro workflow that will shave hours of post off of Multi-cam production.

Kim Salyer of Video Arts in San Francisco and freelance producer/editor Joanne Dorgan will present a Final Cut Pro case study involving the Coca-Cola Pavilion and the Adidas Spiral Theater at the Beijing Olympics and filmmaker Steve Sherrick of RedUser.net will discuss Indy-style Red Digital Cinema Workflow and show footage. And back by popular demand, San Diego's Wounded Marines Careers Foundation will premiere their newest video produced by their current class.

Rounding out the evening will be the "World Famous Raffle" with over $90,000 worth of prizes to be handed out to dozens of lucky winners, featuring "super secret" new product introductions as raffle prizes from JVC, AJA and Blackmagic Design.

The FCPUG Network will also be on the NAB show floor for the first time in South Hall with the "SuperBooth" (#SL10129), featuring a full four-day schedule of free half-hour training sessions by many of the countries most recognized Final Cut Studio Gurus and digital filmmakers. Presenters include: Alex Lindsey, Mark Spencer, Steve Kanter, Shane Ross, Rob Birnholz, Dan Berube, Philip Hodgetts, Larry Jordan, Arthur C. Smith, Jim Kanter, Richard Harrington, Noah Kadner, Anthony Artis, Ernie Schaffer, Adrian Ramsier, Gary Adcock, Rick Young, Karl Soule, Cynthia Stein, Scott Simmons, John Flowers, Norman Hollyn, Joanne Dorgan and Kim Salyer and Abba Shapiro.

Tickets are on sale now online only for $15.00 each and this event is expected to sell out. Historically every SuperMeet has always sold out.
