Introduction to Digital Colour Grading with DaVinci Resolve

NOTE: Participants must download and install DaVinci Resolve 16 on their personal computers for this workshop.

With the boom of digital cinematography over the past decade, digital colour grading has become an integral part of the post-production pipeline. Software like DaVinci Resolve has leveraged the power of more efficient computer systems with decades of colour timing experience. This introductory course covers everything from initial conform, raw colour grading, to HSL keying. We will do an in depth look at Blackmagic Cinema Camera 2.5K RAW, Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 4.6K RAW and RED 5K RAW workflows, which will enable you to utilize the full extent of raw information available from each camera, and take your visuals to the next level with DaVinci Resolve. 

Colour Theory is required as a prerequisite to this workshop. This workshop is recommended as a companion to the Intermediate Digital Colour Grading with DaVinci Resolve, Blackmagic Cinema Camera and URSA Mini Pro, and RED Epic Camera workshops. Participants are encouraged to have media to work with.
