Our courses are part of ICA-International Colourist Academy. The purpose of the ICA courses is to enable industry professionals to develop their expertise further and master the art of colour grading. Now in its 6th year the courses have proved immensely popular and are established as an important component in training of the colourists of tomorrow. All students who successfully finish the Resolve 101,  Resolve 201, Popular Looks and Masterclasses will be awarded ICA Certificate. 

Our lectures are created through our passion for colour. Our students are encouraged to constantly explore new possibilities and develop their own style as a colourist. They work both collaboratively and independently. We strongly encourage networking between trainees – colourists from different countries, companies and creative studios. 

A notable  number of our past students WORKED on major projects such as: The Girl With A Dragon Tattoo, Mr Turner, Total Recall, The Game of Thrones, Exodus and many more.
