Summer Blockbuster Tutorial Sneak Peek


I've been busily working on the first tutorial in my video tutorial series. Here is a sneak peek of what I've been cooking up. I'll be updating this page over the next 2 weeks with more sample images prior to the final launch, so check back often for the latest info. The first tutorial in the series is my take on the summer blockbuster look. In the tutorial I break down the look, explain the colour theory behind why it works, I then breakdown the node structure behind the look in an easy to understand format and then show you exactly how to achieve it inside Resolve.

April 10 Update: Below is a Red Epic shot by Toby Linden that I grade in the tutorial. The video is taking a bit longer than expected, but I'm trying to put in the ground work early on, so I've got a strong foundation for future video tutorials.

Below is Red Epic 5K 2.4:1 footage of a watch I shot. In the tutorial I grade this footage to match the look of Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol. I show you exactly how it's done and will make available the original R3Ds so you can follow along.

Below the watch I've included some screengrabs of Ghost Protocol to show you the look I'm trying to match.
