Training for colour grading and Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve & Fusion
I've worked on feature films ('Wreckers' starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Claire Foy), music videos (such as Kanye West, Mumford & Sons, The Macabbees), long-form docs (ITV, BBC, Nat Geo), promos (Channel Five and Sky), adverts for T-Mobile, Mazda, Pontins and countless items for programmes like Newsnight, Panorama, Politics Show, Daily Politics.
Previously Senior Editor and Colourist in London, with two decades of experience at the BBC. While living in the USA, I started teaching colour grading and DaVinci Resolve - I'm back in England now and I'm a Master Trainer for Blackmagic Design.
In addition to teaching for training companies in the USA, I've completed many bespoke colour grading training courses for the likes of HBO and NBC in New York, WGBH in Boston and BBC in London. Recently worked with ScreenSkills to develop and deliver a two-day HETV Avid to Resolve Conversion Course for online editors.
Exceptional course for anyone seeking a solid foundation in Davinci Resolve.
"I had the pleasure of taking the Davinci Resolve conversion course, and it was truly fantastic! Our instructor Jamie Dickinson was exceptional. He had extensive knowledge of Resolve and was always ready to offer assistance. Furthermore, he was approachable and friendly whenever we had any questions, and I wouldn't think twice about having him as an instructor again.
Having worked for 3 years in the software, the course was incredibly insightful and provided several valuable tips that I wasn't aware of. Overall, it was an enriching experience, and I highly recommend it to anyone seeking a solid foundation in Davinci Resolve."

"...It was a pleasure to meet you and the feedback on the training has been terrific. You have been a huge help for us in getting grading launched. I will definitely keep you in mind for future work."

"Jamie is a great colourist and has done a skilled and beautiful job on our film 'Wreckers'. He knows the technology of the Pablo very well, and uses that technology creatively. He's also lovely to work with."
"I worked with Jamie Dickinson on a short film called Whore that won the Grand Prix du Jury, Angers and the East End Film Festival; and also on various music videos. It was a pleasure to work with Jamie. He is highly skilled, fast and also willing to try out ideas. I was very happy with the end result on the work that we did together."
"Thank you, sir, for a fantastic experience. As I said, you handled some very difficult technical issues with a lot of grace. I learned a great deal and appreciate the extra effort you put into the class content."
