In fact, anyone with a desire to understand digital colour will benefit from this unique training.
Colour Managed Workflow
Bespoke Training Service
Color Managed Workflow started as a training for high-end feature film production teams and has established itself as a reference training for production teams looking to advance their image quality. This training is now available as a part of our Bespoke Training Service for networks, production and post-production companies and businesses in TV and Film production looking to fast-forward their production teams and bring them to the latest standards.
NYC 25 – 26 February
The ultimate hands-on practical training on how to control the visual appearance of skin, the techniques that shape and modify the look and feel, and advanced retouching techniques that can be deployed using Davinci RESOLVE, FUSION and MOCHA.
One could argue that half of the colorist’s job is to grade skin tones. With 4K now being a standard and with increased screen quality, the appearance of the skin has become more challenging than ever. It is impossible to master and finish production without having to give the skin some form of treatment. While motion picture skin re-touching was originally limited to a few high-end film or commercial productions, today is a constantly growing world of digital media content and its different delivery channels. It has become a rule that everyone needs high-end finishing look whether this be for film, commercial, Netflix, Instagram or Facebook.
HDR for Davinci Resolve
LA 6 – 7 February
In the last two years, we have seen an exponential growth of HDR productions. As a result, there is a big demand for colorist skilled in grading and delivering in HDR. This intensive two-day masterclass will prepare you for the job of grading and delivering HDR shows for Netflix, Amazon or any other HDR channel using Davinci Resolve.
I have been a professional DIT since 2009, working with the tools the course was based around and, as such, expected the course to be more of a refresher and, at best, hoped that I might pick up a couple of alternative ways of approaching things. Instead, you gave me techniques and principles that have revolutionised my practice, making me faster, more flexible and ultimately just better.
I was able to put the skills and knowledge you gave me into practice on the very next job, using both the little shortcuts and tricks you gave us and, more importantly, applying the broader principles of colour science that I’ll be able to use and build upon for a long time to come.
Dado’s courses distinguish themselves by his holistic approach to teaching that goes far beyond just pressing the buttons. He makes you think! Scary, exciting and a total delight.
Martin has been delivering excellent, tailored colour classes to the National Film and Television School’s Digital FX colourists and VFX students for several years. He has the rare ability to make the complex understandable.
I was extremely pleased to find in Dado a great professional and an amazing teacher with so much experience. He had answers to any questions, had patience and a great sense of humor. On top of everything, he seems very much in love with his job and I consider this to be his greatest attribute. The classes are well conceived, efficient and organized. ColourTrainingis a great place to start the color grading road or to develop into a better colorist”
The most important thing about this course is that you transmit the enthusiasm and the passion for this subject (things that I already felt when I first entered in a color theatre in the company I used to work) and now, more than ever, I really know that’s what I want to do in my life!
So I’m giving a 10/10 to this course… I wished it lasted more, but I’m not saying the time wasn’t enough for what we did, I’m saying that I have so many things to learn!
Thanks again, and if you ever need an apprentice you can count on me, it would be an honour!
