This Masterclass is designed for industry professionals as a preparation and training program for employment inside high-end Feature Film DI facilities. In this course we will be working on a project that was a theatrically released feature film. The feature was shot on Red Epic using anamorphic lenses. We are going to take the film from the preparation for grading through to the final deliverables. Apart from the obvious colour grading work we will also take an extensive look at the new features in Resolve V12 for online and mastering from a feature film perspective.
