Chad worked on coloring my film and he did an amazing job! Very communicative and easy to collaborate with. He picked right up on the vision and is super knowledgeable. His talent speaks for itself. Great guy for the job. Highly recommend!

I’ve worked with Massive Clouds for over 15 years on broadcast projects large & small. Immensely creative, always innovative and technically ahead of the curve. Also 100% bacon saving a couple of times! Chad is a gem. I’ve done my very best work and shared the most laughs at Massive Clouds.

I highly recommend Chad Smith and Massive Clouds. Chad is a talented colorist and meticulous online editor. He did the conform and color correct on our two-hour documentary "American Oz" about L. Frank Baum for American Experience, which included a great variety of archival material with different formats and frame rates. The final film looks spectacular, and Chad is a delight to work with. We look forward to working with Massive Clouds on our next project.

Working with Chad at massive clouds was a wonderful experience. Color correction on my feature documentary was given the utmost care, and audience members and staff at several film festivals specifically mentioned the color as being outstanding. And we passed QC on the first try on every platform with no adjustments, which is not always the case with some outputs. My film was highly visual, and would not have had the same impact without the great work done at massive clouds. Also a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend.

Had a great experience with Chad who did an excellent job on my feature documentary Land of Little Rivers. It was a complex job and he was very easy to work with and the film looks great.

Big thanks to Tim Mangini, Senior Director of Production at GBH in Boston for inviting me to speak about color correction as part of the Editors Boot Camp event this past weekend.  Got to put some faces to names and meet some great newcomers.  An amazing facility there. 

Today's office. Adding some atmosphere to a short film a buddy of mine is mixing. Fretless Guitar Fun!

What I did on my summer vacation.  Switched it up a little and made some new samples in the old garage.  That garbage pail could make a great kick drum.  TBD.
