There are so many ways to learn color grading on the internet. From hours of content on YouTube to the online course. And don't get me started, It's no secret: there are tons of online courses out there that are ready to take your money; however, pre-recorded content doesn't allow you to ask questions, doesn't allow you get re-explanations, doesn't allow you to work on live examples, and doesn't benefit your unique learning style.

I'm the type of person that loves to use YouTube as an online resource for my learning, and granted there's a lot of use information, but Sidney's course stands above traditional courses. Hands on learning and the ability to take control of his screen to work on grades offers invaluable real-time feedback.

Sidney’s course was invaluable in giving me a much greater understanding into the world of colour grading and how to get the most out of my videos. Having Sidney on hand throughout the course was great help and he was able to answer any of my questions with great detail. He’s also quite funny at times, but don’t tell him I said this.

UI & HDR Primaries
LOG profiles are a powerful tool; however, if graded incorrectly, your footage can come out worse than a regular profile. LOG footage doesn't have to be complicated. I will walk you through how to reverse engineer any LOG Curve in the field.
Log Gamma Correction
Perfect skin tones are the most sought after characteristic in color grading. I will be teaching you not only how to edit both black and white skin tones, but also walking you through the foundations of color theory that make up the skin.
Keying & Skin Tones
The biggest misconception is that color grading starts in post production; however, good color grading starts in pre-production. We will walk through Color Theory from A-Z and then learn how to apply it on set. This class will change the way you look at movies forever.
Understanding Color Theory
Now that you've got a solid understanding on how to apply color grading on set, we will go through step by step on how to apply our knowledge in DaVinci Resolve by creating looks. And although you'll learn the traditional teal and orange "Hollywood" look, you'll also learn how to create unique looks for every scene.
Getting good looking footage is hard enough, but the pain of trying to match cameras has been the bane of existence for many colorist. This module will show you how to seamlessly match any camera your using so that you entire production looks like it was shot on the same camera.
The ACES Workflow
Raw footage: your secret weapon as a colorist... when done right. The latitude and freedom found in the high bit rates of raw footage allow us to push our images further. I'll share my top techniques for maximizing every bit of latitude in the industries top raw profiles.
The Raw Workflow
This is it: it's now time to take everything you've learned over the past month and apply it to complex node setups. I'll be teaching you how to control each and every element of your image to achieve truly organic results. After this class, the possibilities you'll have in post will be endless.
this course changed my style
This course changed my style completely. Before, I had absolutely no idea how to create a look, let alone work in a brand new NLE. Sidney really made learning in this new software a breeze as long as I did my part and learned the absolute basics of editing and color terminolgy.
I consider myself an intermidate in resolve color correction and grading. Sidney's course has shown me techniques that I have never seen before. The course is easy to follow while being real thorough. If you are new to grading in resolve then look no further, Sidney is sure to put you on your path to grading your projects with confidence.
I am a Digital Colorist, lover color theory, and obsessed with helping people reach their fullest potential as a colorist (without having to search through hours of YouTube Tutorials).
I'm a top-ranked color grading instructor on YouTube; however, my favorite days are spent away from platform and working 1 on 1 with my students. Watching new colorist gain a foundation and hone their own personal styles is beats generic color grading tutorials any day.
