DSLR Guru, Philip Bloom (pictured at a previous SuperMeet), will show his best creations from a year that has seen him work for George Lucas, and shoot with many of the most talked about cameras, such as Panasonic’s AF101, the Sony PMW-F3 and Red’s Epic. Bloom will also be holding an Amsterdam DSLR Meetup, on 10 September, at 19:00, to talk about filmmaking, DSLRs, and anything else that comes up. RSVP at his Facebook Meetup Event Page.
Also on the SuperMeet agenda will be London-based colourist, Dado Valentic (pictured left), who graded BAFTA winner Flying with Monsters, and the world’s first 3D opera Carmen in 3D, as well as 3D commercials for Panasonic, Red Bull and Nintendo.
