In this workshop we will focus on the software DaVinci Resolve 14 as a tool to increase the production value of our shots.


Together with Sergi Sanchez we will cover basic theory on light and colour spaces to understand concepts like gamma, codecs, mid-tone levels, 8bit, 10bit, what is 4:2:0 and what makes 4:4:4 and RAW different.

Understanding what do you grade for: cinema, web, TV. Rules on that. Correcting mistakes: underexposure, grain, overexposure, focus, white balance. Matching shots within a scene, even when shot with different cameras. How to deal with that. Avoiding on-set mistakes that are hard to correct on post. Keeping a consistent look throughout the scene. Creating a global look for your film.

The Workshop is intended for people with basic knowledge on camera, light and/ or editing softwares who want an introduction on DaVinci Resolve.
