SuperMeet is an international event that aims to bring together experts from the creative and digital industries. The event focuses on sub-sectors like digital filmmaking, broadcasting, editing, and visual storytelling. SuperMeet is held in several cities around the world, including London, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Boston, and Amsterdam. The London SuperMeet was first held in 2010.
About SuperMeet London
Since its first London edition in 2010, SuperMeet has had a clear educational focus. This event consists of a series of talks, show and tells, and hands-on workshops where attendees can gain new skills and become proficient users of the software tools that are commonly used in the creative and digital sectors. The event welcomes students as well as experienced professionals, and therefore it provides a great opportunity to network and establish lasting professional connections.
Every event at SuperMeet is designed to be interactive, informative, and educational. Anyone who is interested in making the most of Mac-based solutions like the Final Cut Studio suite or the Creative Suite 4 Production Premium should attend this event.
SuperMeet is organised by the Creative Pro User Group (CPUG), which originated in Boston as a new version of the Final Cut Pro User Group. The first Creative Pro User Groups were established in the United States in year 2000, and currently every city that hosts a SuperMeet event has a local CPUG that is in charge of organisation and logistics.
The London SuperMeet has featured notable speakers like Larry Jordan (certified Final Cut Pro X trainer and executive producer at Digital Production Buzz), Simon Walker (creative director at Wiltshire Video), Alexis Van Hurkman (Manhattan-based colorist and director who has worked for the BBC and History Channel), and Todd Prives (marketing manager and business developer at GenArts).
The 2013 edition of the London SuperMeet will have the participation of renowned professionals like Tom Rolf (former president of the American Cinema Editors Association), Philip Bloom (filmmaker and cinematographer), Larry Jordan (filmmaker and chair of the San Francisco Art Institute Film Department), Martin Baker (managing director at Digital Heaven UK), and Walter Murch (Academy award winner and film editor).
