“The Colorist Strategies class is something every (relatively) new colorist has to take. The class lets you think about how to build up the grading of a shot and how to apply it within the whole grading of a project. Thanks for giving me different insights in color grading!”

“Colorist Strategies gave me insights into the quickest, most widely applicable and precise approaches to using toolsets that are prevalent in pretty much every color grading system. Approaches, looks and techniques that are often essential to any colorist working to a demanding schedule where an efficient high quality workflow is paramount. In addition to introducing a huge scope of technical information that has both increased my knowledge of the demands of various formats, LUT’s, different colour spaces and understanding some of the science behind light and color, the course has also shown me much faster ways of achieving in seconds what would have previously taken me hours. Thanks for saving me time and increasing my creativity!”

“The course was very informative and educational. I especially like that there was an extra day where the instructor accommodated our questions and discussed specific issues each of us had to deal with back home. I gathered valuable information that I was able to use immediately on my next grading session. The course included lessons on both the technical and creative sides of color grading. Kevin has thorough and in depth knowledge of Film Master. He gave us an honest assessment of its capabilities and limitations. Who knew that the “Book M” button doesn’t really do anything? 😉 I would recommend the master class to people with at least a year of experience color grading using Film Master.”

“The Resolve classes were not just a great way to advance my skills using DaVinci Resolve but more importantly an opportunity to share ideas, concerns and break routine with new approaches. While you can just as easily learn the operations of a program online, you get so much more out of a shared learning environment lead by professionals, learning with other professionals of varying experience and backgrounds. Warren leads his courses with great insight, passion, and a respect for every course attendee.”

Resolve 201 was a blast! Getting outside the daily work environment allowed me to learn, experiment, and just play with Resolve. It opened my eyes to things about color correction that I knew but had forgotten about. You showed me how I can work better, and faster without sacrificing quality. One of the best parts was making new friends.
