How to Start Color Correcting (like a Pro)
Stop watching. Start doing.
Most training focuses on buttons and widgets. Colorist Flight School starts with button / widget learning and takes it to the next level—helping you burn that learning into your muscles.
- Color correct an entire short film
- Shot-by-shot, sit with the colorist—be there as the film is color corrected
- Download the camera-original footage—then color correct it yourself
- Submit your corrections for professional feedback
- Ask questions. Get answers.

Does Our Home Study Work?
Here’s What Your Peers Are Saying:
While working on my own after the lesson . . I attempted to complete the Base Grade as fast I usually have to for work. It was amazing to see how far off I got in the last three sections to the detriment of crushing some blacks detail and adding noise just by using tools for purposes that I am not used to. Super helpful twist to get me out of my habits.
Thanks for your video response which was quite helpful…Jason B., Editor, Colorist | emailing about the 'Remastering Mother Died' Home Study
You’re a legend brother. The way you do your tutorial, the email support and your attitude about dealing with questions is 100% on the ball and you are doing a great service to all the people out there who want to learn.
You are representing colorists and you’re really giving back in ways that few others are prepared to give.
Thanks for everything you have to offer.Jamie JT Trent
Being able to really see the actual steps that need to be taken as you go along and things come up is invaluable. This is an actual training course not just button location.
Now, as I continue to work with Resolve, I really do think of you and your thorough training as I move around freely in the program. Your training comes from a generous heart that really actually invites others into the art of grading.
Thanks again!Smita Hanley

I’m lovin’ the Grade Along.
The Resolve Essentials were very helpful in giving me confidence in my ability to operate this powerful program. Your method and style of teaching is very effective, and you “real world” approach really drives home the practicality of the skills.
Yesterday, I prepped a Media Composer AAF for color grading a local facility. I wanted to test the process before I delivered the elements. I had problems. In the beginning it felt like they might be insurmountable. Nothing seemed to work. However, I just kept working it, as I saw you doing in [Episode 2 of 'Dead Mans Lake']. Eventually, I was able to solve all my issues and generate an accurate Resolve session.
I delivered my elements to the Colorist and just received a phone call from him telling me that everything looks great.
Thanks to the training, I look like I know what I’m doing. I’m excited about completing the course.Robert J Castaldo
