DAVINCI RESOLVE WORKSHOP: EDITING

This Workshop is designed for those who wish to make the jump and use DaVinci Resolve 15 as their main editing software.

DAVINCI RESOLVE 15: THE ALL IN ONE SOFTWARE

As you may know, DaVinci Resolve 15 is now an “all-in-one” program, which means we can use it in all stages of editing and postproduction, from start to finish.

The editing tools in DaVinci Resolve 15 are fantastic, modern, and easy to use.  All of my students who switch to Resolve to edit never look back…

On top of all this, DaVinci Resolve 15 is free, and you can download today here.

It’s just one of the best options for indie filmmakers.

In this Workshop we focus on everything related to Resolve as an editing tool.

You will learn everything necessary to edit any film project: media management, camera card back-up, how to log and organise media in a project, video/audio syncing, editing tools, refining tools, multi-camera editing, video FX, sound editing and mixing, sound FX, subtitles creation, color grading, export, etc..

REQUIREMENTS

No previous experience is required. In this workshop we start from scratch.

Students must bring their own laptops (Mac or PC), with DaVinci Resolve 15 installed.

The software can be downloaded for free, here.

Video and audio media to practice is provided by me.
