The Creative Pro User Group (CPUG) Network have announced that the inaugural Bay Area SuperMeetUp will take place on Friday, June 26, 2015 at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose CA. Held in association with Future Media Concepts and the FCPX Creative Summit, the Bay Area SuperMeetUp will feature a keynote by Randy Ubillos, former Chief Architect of Final Cut Pro.
Ubillos recently retired from Apple after twenty years. In that time he was Chief Architect on a wide range of products such as Final Cut Pro, Final Cut Pro X, Aperture, iMovie ’08 through ’11 and iPhoto for iOS. In addition, Randy also created versions 1 through 4.2 of Adobe Premiere Pro.
“We are very honored to have Randy appear at the SuperMeetUp,” says Daniel Berube, head of the Boston Creative Pro User Group and co-producer. “He fundamentally changed the way we all tell visual stories.”
“He changed the world’s Post Production industry. Entire industries have grown up around what he has created,” continues Michael Horton, head of the Los Angeles Creative Pro User Group and co-producer. “He has had an amazing career and we are very grateful he has accepted our invitation.”
In addition to Randy Ubillos, there will be presentations by Blackmagic Design, Adobe, Other World Computing and That Studio.
Doors will open at 5:00PM with the “SuperMeetUp Digital Showcase,” featuring over a dozen software and hardware developers including Atomos, Boris FX, FCPWORKS, Flanders Scientific, HDDISK, Imagineer, LumaForge, Lumberjack Systems, Pond5, Sonnet, Telestream and others. Here, attendees can enjoy a few cocktails, network and party with industry peers, talk one on one with leading manufacturers and learn about the latest trends in collaborative editing workflows for postproduction and broadcast markets.
Presentations will begin at 7:00PM and continue until 11:00PM. Rounding out the evening will be the always wild and crazy “World Famous Raffle” where thousands of dollars worth of valuable prizes will be handed out to dozens of lucky winners.
What is a SuperMeetUp? A SuperMeetUp is simply smaller and more intimate than a SuperMeet. Seats are limited to only 350 people. Like a SuperMeet though, it provides the postproduction and broadcast community an opportunity to not only learn about latest technology trends, but to network and share industry news and opportunities in a social setting that is both educational, exciting and fun!
SuperMeetUp attendees are not required to register or attend the FCPX Creative Summit. SuperMeetUp attendees can also benefit from a 50% off single night discounted hotel rate at the 4.5 star rated Hotel Fairmont, just a 5 minute walk to the SuperMeetUp and FCPX Creative Summit.
