DaVinci Resolve is no doubt the most professional and powerful color grading software available. Most films, from independent productions to high­end blockbusters, are color graded with this software.

The DaVinci Resolve Advanced Workshop focuses on bigger than HD media (2K, 4K, RAW film formats), complex workflows (like creating dailies for editing in other softwares or managin LUT’s), and secondary color grading (this is: correcting a range of color, and/or using masks, keys, etc.). We also go deeper into working with nodes.

The Workshop will be moderated by Flavio G. Garcia and is held in english.
He is an editing and postproduction expert, with 10 years of experience teaching to all kind of students, from award winning professionals to video enthusiasts. He has taught at many universities, film academies, private companies, organizations, and particulars.
