Event Details

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?


12th June 3 Day 101 Colorist Strategies with Resolve. 

12th June 5 Day Colorist Strategies with Resolve. 

15th June 2 Day 201 Advanced Colorist Strategies with Resolve


You can take either the 2,3 or 5 day version of this class. I have taken this new approach as a number of people said it was too hard to take 5 days away from their work comitments.There are also a number of Resolve users at different levels, so I want to try and accomodate the different abilities.

The class starts on Monday and follows a similar structure to the classic 3 Day Resolve 101 class. The 5 day versions adds 2 extra days looking at more advanced techniques and Looks, which is the 2 day Advanced Colorist Strategies with Resolve. All 3 options include the chance to bring and grade your own problem material. Please contact me directly if you want to clarify anything.

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.

Griffith University is located at South Bank in Brisbane. A fantastic river front location close to hotels restaurants and bars. It a short walk to the Brisbane CBD, or you can make use of the ferry and City Cat network

I flew 14 hours to take Warren's 5 day class. It was totally worth it. Not only did I learn the Resolve skills I needed for my own post work, but I gained insights on how to present this material to my students. Warren has truly earned the reputation as the Number 1 Resolve trainer in the world.
