Bespoke Classroom Training

Over the last five or six years I've delivered dozens of classroom training courses, mostly on colour grading and DaVinci Resolve. You learn the fundamentals of colour grading, using scopes etc. and you learn Resolve from the Color Page outwards.

I've taught these Colour 101 and 201 courses in London, New York city, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago and Washington DC and I hope to add to this list soon.

One thing I make a point of doing on all these courses is to draw people's attention to useful resources on the internet and the websites I always mention are listed below:

[UPDATE UPDATE: The course ran very successfully on Nov 9th. I can arrange another one in a few months time...!]

UPDATE: Colour Grading & DaVinci Resolve 3-day interactive training course

I've taught this course dozens of times in various cities in the USA, usually as a mix of in-person and remotely connected. Now that I'm back in England and have been teaching for Blackmagic Design using Zoom, I'm offering my course again - at a fraction of the price it used to be charged at.   

The course will run at 2pm GMT(UK)/9am ET (USA) November 9th 2020 over Zoom. 

  • Hands-on and interactive, it's the course I developed and taught to editors at HBO, NBC and many others.

  • It's an intensive intro to both colour grading and to Resolve - you learn Resolve from the colour page outwards.

  • I'll demystify all the terms, talk about scopes, codecs, LUTs, levels, order of operations, etc. We'll also talk about the creative side and go through the entire workflow on a short film.

  • We get into some advanced colour grading techniques by the end of it. Pretty much everything under the Colour menu. 

  •  Ideal for an editor, motion designer, director of photography or director who wants a really good grounding in both colour grading and DaVinci Resolve.

Any suggestions or requests for shorter, more general Resolve courses please let me know​ and I'll set something up.  (affiliate link) 

Fantastic training site which includes a huge, searchable catalogue of video and audio "Insights" about colour grading. I'm a guest contributor here so you can find several Insights from me - mine are mostly about Fusion.

OTHER LINKS; - Phil Crawley knows his stuf. All things calibrations, colour and broadcast tech. - Great articles and podcasts on vfx including colour grading Steve Yedlin - I don't know him but he's a DP who's done amazing work on Star Wars, Knives Out, among others and he's very clever and helpful on twitter.
