The Success of the Final Cut Pro SuperMeetup at South by Southwest
Fresh off the hugely successful Final Cut Pro SuperMeet in San Francisco in February, organizers Michael Horton and Daniel Berube took their event to South by Southwest on March 13, and hit another one out of the park.
This one was just a little different – they scheduled a SuperMeetup, held at MAggie MAe’s on E. 6th St., and it did indeed turn out to be super, with over 450 people attending.
HDSLR filmmaker Philip Bloom and Video Blogger Steve Garfield were present; Steve did a live video stream interviewing filmmakers, while Philip shot a music video on stage of Celeste of The Monarchs. Cynthia Stein of CUTS Austin, the Austin Film Society, Austin Film Meet and ReelWomen teamed up with them to help make the event a success as well.
The event was even listed as an official SXSW party, and it looks like the SuperMeetup my just become a regular event at SXSW.
Next, the SuperMeet juggernaut travels to Las Vegas for the NAB show, with the Ninth Annual Las Vegas FCPUG SuperMeet at NAB set for April 13 at the Rio Hotel and Casino.
