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, and we also introduce Color Grading.

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..

I’m an independent filmmaker, film professor, and editing and postproduction expert.

Since 2009, I teach courses, workshops and seminars all over Europe, in filmshcools, festivals, production companies, and other institutions: DOCMA, FilmArche Berlin, ESDIP-Berlin, MIZ-Babelsberg, Master-LAV, and many others…

My teaching method is very practical, precise, and structured, and I also make sure things are exciting and fun!

I have postproduced and graded lots of film projects: La Piedra (Víctor Moreno), Freedom to Kill the Other’s Children (David Varela), Armenoscope (Silvina der Meguerditchian)…

My movies as director have been shown in more than 40 international film festivals and venues: Cineteca Matadero, MUSAC, Alcine, Pragda New York…
