Argo, The Imitation Game, Zero Dark Thirty

“I’ve been using Media Composer for so long now it’s pretty much become an extension of my brain! It’s sometimes hard to believe I did it any other way. And it keeps getting better – with more tracks, better image quality, more tools - and the new features are always intuitive…It’s instinctual, and that really frees me up when I work. It’s an amazing tool and I have no reason to ever use anything else.”
