I wanted to let all digital filmmakers and FCP users know that the first annual FCPUG SuperMeet is coming to London on June 25, 2009.
We have booked the Great Hall at the Kensington Conference and Event Centre and are currently in the process of raising the necessary funds to put on this event.
For those of you who do not know, nor ever heard of a SuperMeet, they are essentially gatherings of Final Cut Pro editors, gurus and Mac-based digital filmmakers from throughout the world who use or want to learn to use Apple’s Final Cut Studio suite of applications, most importantly Final Cut Pro. The FCP UG Network’s mission is to build connections between Final Cut Pro users, filmmakers and professionals who wish to lead the digital filmmaking revolution. This event is a great opportunity to network and hang out with like minded folks, many of whom might be able to help you.
SuperMeets are held annually along side large trade shows such as Macworld in San Francisco, NAB in Las Vegas and IBC in Amsterdam. The agenda usually includes demos of new products, digital video tips and tricks, and filmmaker show and tells. In addition there are over two dozen vendors showing off their wares as part of what the organizers call the FCP Trade Show. In addition we give away thousands of dollars worth of "raffle" prizes as part of our "World Famous Raffle."
This is our first time in London and the first time we will not hold this event along side a trade show. We want to see if we can stand on our own 2 feet. We are confident we can.
Agenda will be announced in early June, but we hope we can count on many of you to get the word out as our marketing budget is pretty limited. Meaning we don't have a lot of money. We prefer to put our money into the event rather than about the event.
We have put up a web site and are updating it daily so please check in every so often to see where we are at.
FCPUG UK 2009 SuperMeet
Tickets will go on sale on 18, May 2009 for only £10.99 each. It is important to us that we keep costs affordable for everyone including sponsors.
Thanks for any help you can give us and we are very excited to be coming to London. It's gong to be a great show and we hope many of you will attend.
