Carey Dissmore is a television and media production professional with 25 years in the business. His work spans the broadcast news, entertainment, advertising, documentary and corporate ranges. He considers himself an editor first, with a heavy amount of motion graphics design as well. He uses an enormous number of tools but the biggies are Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro, After Effects and the full Adobe suite. He has moved away from Apple Color to DaVinci Resolve for his growing colorist work. Carey just wrapped post work on season 2 of a successful Food Network program, some regional TV spots and is currently engaged in a smattering of corporate and medical motion graphics projects.
Carey founded the International Media Users Group (IMUG) and the MediaMotion Ball at NAB, establishing it as a strong user community event that has been running since 1998. He is active on the MediaMotion IMUG and AE e-mail lists that he helps administer.
Carey also runs his own Minneapolis area production company Carey Dissmore Productions, Inc.
In addition, Carey teaches advanced editing and Adobe After Effects at a prominent liberal arts college, and at numerous seminars and industry events. If you are interested in booking Carey for presentations or consultation, please inquire and provide some details of your proposal.
Carey notes: “This blog is a place where I can express my thoughts on subjects of interest to me, and hopefully my professional colleagues in the industry. Please note that any opinions that I express do not indicate any official position or view of the IMUG or any other organization I might be affiliated with. Also note that I, being a flexible and reasonable person, might change my views or opinions from time to time as my own knowledge and circumstances lead me, so check the date on the posts!”
“Please note that I’m trying to provide perspective and all I have to offer is my own. I would never assert that my opinion or approach is the only right way of doing something. Having said that, I hope you can find useful nuggets along the way”
