Remember the SuperMeet? Those great filmmaking events that were a stable of Tuesday night of NAB for many, many years in Las Vegas? And they would occasionally have SuperMeets elsewhere in the world? SuperMeet big farewell at NAB 2019 but the name and the event is going to live on as a new SuperMeet will be born on Friday, November 15 in Boston. It will run in conjunction with the Keyframes Conference and even has a new partner with Future Media Concepts. And it won’t be the first Boston SuperMeet either. You know Future Media as they put on NAB Post|Production World every year in addition to other conferences throughout the year. Speaking of NAB, NAB New York happens next week (October 16 and 17) and if you happen to hit the Post|Production Conference NYC then drop by any of my classes and say hello.

SuperMeets are always fun events full of great learning and some amazing raffle prizes. My best SuperMeet memories are in the networking and friendly chats I would have before, during and after the event. The vendor area always seemed much more laid back than the NAB show floor. It’s the notorious 2011 NAB SuperMeet that will live in infamy as it was the one where Apple took over the event and unveiled Final Cut Pro X. The SuperMeet was also the place where Blackmagic gave away many $30,000 Resolve Advanced panels over the years. There have always been very generous vendors donating tons of raffle prizes so they are all to be thanked.
