Join us for an intensive weekend workshop with an in-depth look into the new mindset of shooting with the Blackmagic Cinema cameras and grading footage using DaVinci Resolve.

This weekend workshop will provide an extensive understanding of the operations and unique shooting/technical characteristics of the Blackmagic Cinema cameras, using both the 4K and MFT (micro fourthirds) Pocket Camera.

A portion of the weekend will be dedicated to providing a basic understanding of the CinemaRAW (DNG) and compressed codec (DnX and Pro Res) post production workflow(s) including the grading of the footage using DaVinci Resolve.
