Final Cut Pro User Group Network Announces SuperBooth at NAB in Las Vegas
The Final Cut Pro User Group Network (FCPUG) “SuperBooth”, part of NABShow 2009, will offer a full 4 day schedule of free immersive sessions with Final Cut Studio, Adobe and digital filmmaking Gurus who will answer questions, demo user-driven production and postproduction workflows, and screen content created with Final Cut Studio and other Macintosh based software. The SuperBooth will serve as an extension of the the Eighth Annual NAB FCPUG SuperMeet, to take place on Tuesday, April 21, 2009 at the Rio Hotel.
“We have always wanted space on the NAB show floor, but could never find the resources or money to afford it,” said Michael Horton, founder of the Los Angeles Final Cut Pro User Group and co-producer of the SuperMeets. “But this year we have gotten tremendous support from the community who are donating their time and expertise to make this booth happen. Our plan is to make the SuperBooth a social gathering spot for all Final Cut Studio users and Digital moviemakers who find themselves in need of learning and connecting.”
“With Apple not on the show floor this year it is our hope that the SuperBooth will fill part of the void,” added Daniel Berube, founder of the Boston Final Cut Pro User Group and co-producer of the SuperMeets. “We will have something different going on every hour for all four days of the NAB SHOW. There will be daily “Guru Hour” where you can get all your Final Cut Studio problems solved by some of the top FCS experts in the world. 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 booth. We are very excited.”
The SuperBooth, (#SL10129) will be located near the Blackmagic Design booth in the lower-lower South Hall. Agenda for the SuperBooth is expected to be posted on the SuperMeet web page on April 1, 2009.
The Eighth Annual FCPUG SuperMeet is looking to be another sell out according to the producers.
“Despite the economy ticket sales are tracking about the same as they did last year and last year was the largest attendance we have ever had at any SuperMeet,” stated Michael Horton. “Historically every SuperMeet has always sold out.”
Added Berube, “Creative people need these types of events, not only for the networking opportunities which are vitally important during these times, but to add to their skill by taking advantage of events such as the SuperMeet and now the SuperBooth.”
The SuperMeet will feature user driven presentations from Blackmagic Design, JVC, Adobe and many others. There will be presentations on revolutionary new Final Cut Studio workflow ideas, show and tells, tips and tricks and a Raffle where tens of thousands of dollars worth of prizes will be handed out to dozens of lucky winners.
Final agenda for SuperMeet is expected to be posted in early April. Tickets are on sale now online only for $10.99 (USD) each. Daily updates as well as a link to purchase tickets can be found on the SuperMeet web page.
