Event description


I am really pleased to be offering for the first time in Perth, ICA Colorist training classes at NM TAFE

1 min Intro video here

These classes whilst run using the new DaVinci Resolve 15 and are designed as an all round colour class. That means great for DPs, DITs, editors and all in one production companies.

The three classes RG101, RG201 and Looks are designed to dovetail so it is possible to take all three together. They also work as independent classes for each level.

Your training machine, media and a number of different control surfaces will be supplied for the duration of the class. Students are encourage to bring and discuss their problem material. The ICA welcomes class participation and we try to tailor each class to our student needs.

I am looking forward heading to WA and spreading my color correction knowledge to the local film industry. Please contact me directly if you have any questions regarding the content of the classes.

Please e-mail me for a 20% student and society discount code

Cheers Warren

The class mixes the operational side of Resolve with some practical real world training on workflows, basic color theory, grading approaches and techniques. It is run at a relaxed pace, questions are encouraged and group participation is a key part of the course. You are encouraged to download Resolve and have a play before coming.

RG301: Looks and Matching Masterclass (2 Days) June 29th

ICA instructor Warren Eagles


My Favourite class. Students will learn how to bring a movie or sequence to life. They will review movie trailers and discuss how the color and mode has enhanced the film. They will also learn how to create the traditional “looks” from movies, TV commercials, and music videos, as well as how to match those looks, not only shot to shot, but also to an entire scene.

Media used

  • TVC beauty type commercial shot on the BMCC. Great for doing very soft/mist type looks.

  • A BMW TVC the mixes Alexa Log C with REC709 footage

  • A war sequence shot on Sony F3. Fantastic for a ‘Saving Private Ryan’

  • Bleach Bypass grade, a hot jungle look, or the classic Day for Night feel.

  • “House of Cards” reconstruction, based on the original scene shot on Arri Alexa. This includes dialogue and reenacts of the original scene from the classic Netflix series.

  • The Looks Drama challenge. A 60sec coutroom drama sequence that was shot with x4 cameras. Alexa URSA Mini Pro, Sony AS7 and a GoPro. A fantastic mixed camera matching challenge.

  • We will address the different challenges presented by each sequence.

  • Students then get the chance to do the same in a timed situation, like a real session but with the instructor playing the client’s role.

  • Students are also encouraged to bring their own footage to work on and share with the class.

Who Should Attend

Great for any current Resolve colorists with at least one year of experience or previous students who have completed either the ICA RG101 Basic or RG201 Advanced classes.

You Will Learn

  • Using LUTs in a creative way.

  • How many Looks to present to a client, and how to read their reactions?

  • Using Plugins and Resolve presets.

  • Preloading your timeline with Nodes.

  • Log grading v Lift Gamma Gain

  • Advanced keying and curve control

  • Power Windows used in a creative way

  • Spot colors

  • Bleach Bypass

  • The ‘Wishy Washy’ flat look

  • The Film Print Look

  • Day for Night

  • Classic Black and White

  • Orange and Teal

  • Cross Process

We will also look at best practices for approaching a session, when to push the grade and when to hold back. Learn from Warren about how he deals with clients in the room. Create established looks and explore how to make new ones. Remember it’s subjective so just play and have fun. Students are encouraged to bring their own material.


All students on this course receive an ICA Certificate.

“I really enjoyed the course. This is an excellent class for anyone seeking to learn interesting and creative ways to grade the different type of digital material. The course structure makes it very enjoyable, easy to understand and gives you the necessary knowledge to stand out in this competitive industry. Warren inspires and motivates you to be a better colorist.”
