Color Grading with Da Vinci Resolve

Color grading still enjoys an odd, almost mystical status among some filmmakers.  Well, there' no magic (Blackmagic doesn't count) here, just hard graft and know-how.  This course will take you from a standing start, right the way through to high-end and professional color grading using the excellent Da vinci Resolve.  The training material I'm providing comes from real-world projects where I was paid to provide my labor.  I'm gong to take you through how I approached each and every one of these projects to achieve professional, high-end results.

I'm now a Blackmagic Design certified trainer in Da Vinci Resolve  and I've been color grading professionally for over six years and in that time I've produced work for brands such as Unilever, Greggs Bakery, TNT Logistics, Joules (a UK clothing line), the NHS, the BBC and Virgin Airlines.  It doesn't stop there either.  I've delivered drama and factual work for broadcast and web as well as feature films for international distribution. 

I'm bringing the benefit of my experience to this course because I know what it's like to have no-one to teach you.  When I started to grade on my film course back in university, there were no tutors who could teach the grade at all.  I wound up spending long nights in the grading suite (some winter days I actually missed the sun completely) teaching myself to use Resolve from scratch.  It paid off as I wound up delivering grading work for the BBC wildlife unit whilst still studying at university.   But why was it like that?  I still believe I'd be a lot better now if I'd had the right training earlier, all the harder to iron out bad habits when there's no-one around to call you out.

So this course is my attempt to provide that support and that training to as many people as possible, all for the price of a pizza (a heavily discounted pizza if it's a large one).  If you want to learn how to finish your film projects to a higher standard then come along as we cover Da Vinci Resolve in Depth in this course.

This course is now in a near-finished state.  I have plans for one additional bonus module on HDR grading in the future, but otherwise I will be revisiting all the lectures here as new versions of Resolve are released.

color grading

This is an excellent DaVinci Resolve color grading course for individuals seeking to understand and accomplish professional quality color work.

Another plus of this course are the practical projects Matthew shared, in which you can watch him at work while explaining what he doing over a period of a few hours of color grading.

Also, I haven't seen too many YouTubers that have the same qualifications as the instructor in color grading.

No matter if you're just beginning with Color Grading or already have some background knowledge, Matthew's sure to have some great tips and tricks for you mixed with real life projects.

looking for

Fast update+more technical explanations for those who are interested - that's what I was looking for.

Digestible nuggets, take you through the process bit by bit which helps the overwhelm of a complex programme:) As I did a couple of other courses about Davinci Resolve for beginners, I was looking for a course to learn some more advanced techniques on this software.

Looking forward to getting into the coloring.
