It’s OK learning new software but what about the real color stuff, the theory, the new camera formats, the workflows and the little tricks and tips that make some graders stand out from the crowd?
This new class combines a Resolve 14 class with a Colorist Strategies class. It is designed around a small conformed sequence that you will take away with you once you have completed the course. We will work through the project from start to finish – not only looking at Resolve, but also using general colorist strategies and best practices.
We will get “under the hood” with color science and digital camera workflows along with looks and styles. You will keep the project and stills after the course, which is a great way to continue your learning.
There will be grading challenges set that will try to test the knowledge gained in real world situations.
This class is ideal for complete beginners or existing Resolve users who want to re-learn from an earlier Resolve version from the ground up. Ideal for Colorists, Editors, DPs, still photographers, DITs and VFX personnel.
Each student gets their own iMac machine. Control surfaces will also be on selected machines for those who want some hands on with the balls and wheels.
