Can't believe it's nearly time for IBC and that means it's also nearly time for the Amsterdam Supermeet. Top of the bill so far are the two editors working on the new Star Wars film.
Make a note in your diary for the 14th of September, as that's the date for the 2014 Amsterdam Supermeet. It's back at the Hotel Krasnapolsky which is just on the edge of Dam Square in central Amsterdam.
Held at the same time as the IBC exhibition at the RAI, the SuperMeet is a good chance to meet up with friends, meet new people, peruse the various manufacturers stands and of course sit in on the many presentations of the evening.
The first (or should we say two) presenters that have been announced are Maryann Brandon ACE and Mary Jo Markey ACE, the editors of J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII. They take top billing, but there will be more excellent presentations announced closer to the date.
Michael Horton and Dan Bérubé put a lot of effort into these evenings and it's not to be missed if you are in Amsterdam for the trade show. Although the Final Cut Pro tag has long been dropped, this seventh holding of the event is squarely aimed at content creators who use a Mac.
Good news, if you register now the the ticket price of $20 is discounted down to $10. We also can't go without mentioning their world famous raffle. Thousands of dollars of kit and software up for grabs, all you have to do is turn up!
