Presenter Brad Crawford

Brad spends his time training students at SAE Institute in Sydney in how to get the most out of DaVinci Resolve. As a Senior Lecturer for SAE's Film Department, he encounters the new crop of Undergraduate and up and coming film makers in all aspects of post production using the latest industry technology and creative media techniques.

Working as a colourist Brad has been grading footage for over 12 years in one form or another since he owned his first video camera. Things were very different then, and he much prefers the software and technologies used today. After native NLE grading and a host of early plugins, his first move into a full grading application was the very slick Apple Color and it's integration with FCP. Not long after Brad was one of a handful of people worldwide to become certified to teach Apple Color as an Apple Certified Trainer.

Brad moved onto DaVinci Resolve several years ago with it's extensive list of features and growing support community. It has been a fantastic injection into the high end workflows and footage utilising the latest Digital Cinema cameras and traditional film material. Brad also completed Instructor status for Adobe After Effects, Avid Media Composer and Apple Color.

Light lunch and refreshments provided.

How to Get There / Parking

By Train: Alight at St Leonards station and walk down Herbert Street. Turn right on Cleg Street. Approximately 10 minute walk. A free Artarmon Loop shuttle bus, leaves from St Leonards station under the Forum pedestrian overpass on the hospital side of Herbert Street. Alight the bus opposite SBS in Frederick Street.
By Taxi/Car: Take the Reserve Road exit from the Gore Hill Freeway traveling North or after exiting the Lane Cove Tunnel traveling South.
There is very limited street parking available. There are occasionally spaces in Punch Street and Francis Street (generally before 8:30am and after 5:00pm), but it is best to seek alternative transport.
