About this course

We use colour theory and the DaVinci Resolve colour page to manipulate colour in creative and artistic ways.

For people who have completed the introductory course or who are familiar with the basic layout of Resolve.

Your colourwork skills will dramatically affect the mood of a scene, making it an incredibly powerful part of your storytelling process.
