AbelCine has partnered with the International Colorist Academy (ICA) to offer this Resolve 101 Plus workshop. This three-day, hands-on workshop is an excellent introduction to DaVinci Resolve 12.5. It is ideal for first time users, and you do not need to be a Colorist to attend.
The workshop mixes the operational side of Resolve with some practical real world training on workflows, basic color theory, grading approaches and techniques. In this course, you will learn why “It’s more about the Art than the App.”
With a small class size, each attendee will have a workstation and control surface. The class is run at a relaxed pace, questions are encouraged and group participation is a key part of the course. Attendees are encouraged to download a free copy of Resolve and try it out.
DaVinci Resolve 101 Plus is ideal for junior colorists, editors, DITs, DPs, and VFX artists, or anybody with a desire to get into color correction. The ICA will confirm your registration for this workshop.
Each student will receive a certificate of completion.
Computers are provided for each student.
The International Colorist Academy (ICA) was established in 2009 to provide “training for Colorists by Colorists”. They conduct small group workshops around the world where instructors share their firsthand knowledge of the skills needed to master Color Grading. icolorist.com

Warren Eagles is a freelance colorist based in Australia. He has an extensive 25-year career with experience in all forms of color correction. Starting out as a photographers’ assistant in London’s West End straight from school, he knew from an early age that he wanted to be involved in a visual industry. He moved to the top SoHo post house Visions in 1987, where he started as a Colorist working on a mixture of long and short form projects. Warren started the Telecine department at Todd AO in 1994 combining closely with their new film lab. He then moved to SVC for a new challenge, grading high-end TV commercials on the DaVinci 888, having previously been a Pandora Pogle user. Around this time Warren was hired by DaVinci on a freelance basis to conduct onsite Colorist training for new customers in Europe. The chance came to go to Australia in 1999 for a three-month contract, and he is still there!
Now a Resolve owner/operator, Warren runs his own shop and splits his time between grading and running training classes with the ICA. His credits include commercials for Qantas, Ford, Mitsubishi, Revlon, and Tooheys, mainstream UK and Australian dramas and documentaries including the first Australian DI movie Blurred and Guy Ritchie’s cult movie Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.
Warren founded the ICA with Kevin Shaw in 2009 and has so far conducted over 50 classes worldwide. He enjoys the challenges of working on different types of projects with new clients in both the coloring and training environments.
