These are challenging times, so it comes as no surprise that Future Media Conferences has moved the entire FCPX Creative Summit online this year. The new FCPX Global Virtual Summit will now be online in November.
If you have ever been to a FCPX Creative Summit, you will know that it's the best Final Cut Pro X event of the year. Sadly, with the current travel restrictions, there is no way that we can all meet in Cupertino to take part this time.
So, Future Media Conferences has taken the summit online. Today they have announced that the new FCPX Global Virtual Summit will be a 'worldwide six-day, post-production centric conference' consisting of programming surrounding the Apple professional video ecosystem.
Two things that we know. The date is not yet finalised, but it will be in mid November, possibly the 2nd or 3rd week.
The full conference pass will be $199. Attendees get to attend the whole conference and gain access to stream session recordings for 90 days post-event.
The grid of speakers is yet to be announced, but if past years are anything to go by, there will be lots to learn from many different professionals who work with Apple products. Also expect real world case studies from filmmakers, showing real-world experiences and problem-solving techniques. Those are always popular.
“The event is a rare chance to learn from the top FCPX minds and go behind the doors with Apple,” said Jeff Greenberg, FMC Program Manager for the conference.
For the past five years of the Summit, you had to be there in person to attend the Apple presentations. We have seen new releases and sneak peeks of new features in Final Cut Pro X before.
In the evenings, attendees will have the opportunity to mingle virtually during networking events and hear from leading tech companies showcasing products and services that can enhance their editing workflows. Networking opportunities are part of the program, including some small, birds-of-a-feather brainstorm rooms.
“The FCPX Global Virtual Summit is designed for intermediate-to-advanced users of FCPX and Motion, who wish to maximize their creativity,” stated Future Media Conferences’ President and Co-founder, Ben Kozuch. “To enhance the experience, we’ve created a perfect blend of training, peer review, social networking and meetings with the Apple team.”
As this is a breaking news story, the FCPX GVS website is being updated on a regular basis, so please check back regularly. There should be a section on the website where you can register your interest.
So if you are one of the many FCPX Creative Summit alumni, you won't need us to tell you how pleased we are to see this happen online. If you've never been to a FCPX Creative Summit, then you are in luck as the FCPX Global Virtual Summit is coming to you!
