"The greatest thing about Smoke for us was the ability to composite and color correct right in the same system. You just can’t do that at the same level in any other package. We knew that with Smoke,we could do anything we wanted and more."
—Thuy Dinh, Founding Partner, DC Collective
“We think of ourselves as editors who design, but not designers,” says Adam Corey, founding partner of DC Collective, a small, creative, and deeply innovative boutique that specializes in editorial, post-production, and motion graphic design. All modesty aside, Corey and his fellow founding partner, Thuy Dinh, have brought more than 3 decades of combined broadcast experience to the enterprise they now run in Silver Spring, Maryland. Corey and Dinh run their full-service production shop along with creative director Peter Davis, senior editor Daniel McNeill, and producer/director Paul Molin.
“I often tell people that the first 90 percent of post-production is easy, it’s the last 10 percent that sets you apart,” says Corey. “It’s software like Smoke that really helps us get through those times successfully.”
“We really can’t express how much Smoke has exceeded our expectations,” says Dinh. “If the software had been able to help us do just half of what we were able to, we would have been ecstatic. We were able to do our teasers, and when we switched over and did a 3D shoot for the semifinals and the championship series, we had files and footage coming in from everywhere and in all kinds of formats. Most software could not handle all that, and certainly not handle it as seamlessly as Smoke.”
“In our work, we never want to have to say ‘that’s good enough,’” says Corey. “With Smoke for Mac, we never have to.”
