The Final Cut Pro User Group Network have announced that the agenda is now set for the Second Annual Amsterdam FCPUG SuperMeet to be held Sunday 13 September, 2009 beginning at 17:00 at The Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky in the heart of Amsterdam, NL. This event is expected to be the largest gathering of Final Cut Studio users, Gurus and Digital Filmmakers during the annual IBC trade show.
Scheduled to appear will be Final Cut Pro co-creator Michael Wohl who will show off the new features as well as discuss what we need to know about the recently announced and shipping, Final Cut Pro 7.
Also scheduled on the agenda and in order of appearance will be:
Apple Certified Trainer, editor and designer Simon Walker will show “How to do a Grade with Color 1.5 in just 10 Minutes.”
Jason Levine, Sr. Worldwide Evangelist for Adobe, is back on the SuperMeet stage to share the latest integration between Final Cut and Creative Suite 4 Production Premium. Jason will show how to take your FCP sequences into Premiere Pro CS4 and dynamically create complex, rich Blu-Ray discs in Encore CS4, building your menus natively in Photoshop CS4, and even creating motion menus and transitions in After Effects CS4.
Space Digital's Simon Blackledge and Gary Kelly will once again take the SuperMeet stage with brand new tips on the importance of choosing 'the right tools for the job'.
MacVideo.tv’s Rick Young and JVC’s Semir Nouri will show off the incredibly simple workflow and show some stunning footage from the recently introduced compact hand-held GY-HM100 3-CCD camcorder and the compact shoulder-mount GY-HM700, the industry's first professional camcorders to store files in the native QuickTime format for Apple's Final Cut Pro.
The organizers of the SuperMeet also intend to turn the show over to the audience for an interactive discussion with Final Cut Studio experts who will answer any and all questions on the NEW Final Cut Studio as well as listen to user feedback and feature requests for future versions of Final Cut Studio. This portion of the meeting will be videotaped and later put on the internet for the world to see.
Also expected on stage will be a “Show and Tell” from a soon to be announced EU filmmaker.
Rounding out the evening will be the always wild "World Famous Raffle" where over €35,000 Euros of valuable prizes will be handed out to dozens of lucky winners.
Doors will open at 17:00 featuring the “FCP Showcase,” where attendees will be able to get up close and personal with 26 vendors and small developers who will be showcasing their solutions for digital filmmakers and Final Cut users. The SuperMeet will begin promptly at 19:00.
Tickets for the Amsterdam SuperMeet are selling fast and are available for sale online for only €15.00 Euros each (Students with valid ID need only pay €10.50 each). Tickets may be available at the door for €20.00 each but it is expected this event will sell out as historically every SuperMeet sells out.
