WHY LEARN COLOR GRADING?
Color Grading allows you to manipulate your videos to fit the mood and emotions that you want to convey in your story.
It's often overlooked as it takes time to learn and master but here are some of the benefits of know how to Color Grade your footage:
- Get the exact mood you envisioned
- Understand your camera and videos on a deeper level
- Improve how you capture video knowing what you can do with it after
Learning yet another skill on top of how to film, edit, record audio, sound design, export, deliver, tell stories and the list goes on, you also need to know Color Grading?
Filmmaking isn't something you learn overnight. It takes time and practice and you need to make a lot of mistakes on the way.
Telling you anything else would be lying.
It all ties together in the end and getting to learn Color Grading early on allows a better understanding moving forward, which you will benefit from along with learning the art of storytelling. Combined the two allows you to envision a story and bring it life in the grading, tying everything together.
TAKE IT ONE STEP AT A TIME
It's all about pace and you can go as fast as you want but without structure it's difficult to know if you're running in the right direction.

HERE'S WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
We start off with the most essential concepts and theories you need to understand Color Grading moving forward, from what a color space is to what complimentary colours mean.

Landing you in DaVinci Resolve
No matter if you are familiar with DaVinci Resolve or not, you'll be in safe hands and guided through all the steps you need to create videos from your first edit to export.
If you're intimidated by Nodes this is a great opportunity to get an easy understanding of why Nodes are so powerful while you learn to grade like a pro.
We'll start by getting you comfortable in DaVinci Resolve before we move into Correction and Grading.
What can be seen as 'the boring part' is the most essential and foundational part to making your image look great. We always start out by correcting our footage with the goal of getting as close to what it looked like in real life, as possible.
In Color Correction we usually work backwards from CST to Balance.
Now comes the 'fun' part! You'll learn all the techniques you need to start developing your own look and style, getting your videos the exact way you envisioned them.
Having covered all the concepts, tools and techniques you need to make your footage look incredible and stand out from the masses, we dive into workflows for all levels. These will allow you to speed up your Color Grading and get a consistent look across all your videos.
We'll take you from Beginner to Advanced in no time!
Build your own LUTs
Whether you want to speed up your own Color Grading, wow your clients or sell pre-made grades to your audience, having LUTs is a great tool.
We'll cover everything you need to choose what LUT you're building, for whom you're building it, how narrow or wide it should be, how to create it, test it and start using or selling it!
Essentially allowing you to earn back what you've paid for the course.
So the only question remaining is:
What are you waiting for?
You won't be alone!
Here's the deal
I (Alex) will be available to answer questions and help you along the way, you just reach out any time you need help.
If you put in the work work and watch the lessons along with completing the included exercises, we'll be having 1-on-1 live calls where I'll help you with any questions and we'll work on grading your own clips.
I know how it feels to learn it all by yourself, I did that and I wish I had someone to talk to, ask questions and get help and motivation from when I needed it. This is by far the best way to speed up your learning when you feel stuck.
