LAS VEGAS — The Creative Pro User Group Network recently announced plans for the 17th Annual Las Vegas SuperMeet, which will take place Tuesday, April 10th at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas. The event coincides with the annual NAB Show, also taking place that week in Las Vegas. Editor Dylan Tichenor, ACE, who has been nominated for Oscar, BAFTA and ACE Eddie Awards, will be the SuperMeet’s featured presenter.
Tichenor got his start in the craft of editing with editor Geraldine Peroni, who brought him on as apprentice editor on Robert Altman’s The Player. Continuing this collaboration, he went on to be assistant editor on Short Cuts, associate editor on Alan Rudolph's Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle, then technical coordinator on Altman's Kansas City, and finally as co-editor on the documentary Jazz '34, for which he earned an Emmy nomination. Mr. Tichenor subsequently entered an ongoing collaboration with writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson, beginning as post production supervisor on Sydney [Hard Eight], and then editing the award-winning features Boogie Nights, Magnolia and There Will Be Blood, for which he was nominated for an Academy Award. He was also nominated for an Oscaor for his work on Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty.
His BAFTA nomination came from editing Ang Lee’s Brokeback Mountain. And he received ACE Eddie Award nominations for Wes Anderson’s The Royal Tenenbaums, as well as There Bill Be Blood and Brokeback Mountain.
The SuperMeet Vendor Showcase will open at 4:30pm featuring over 20 software and hardware developers. Here, attendees can enjoy cocktails, mingle and party with industry peers, network one on one with leading manufacturers and learn about the latest trends in collaborative editing workflows for post production and broadcast markets.
