Colourist, Darren Mostyn, will present how he works with DaVinci Resolve to colour grade music promos for Amazon Music, Sony Music, and many Indie labels with top Directors including Shane Meadows. Throughout his 18 year colourist carreer, Darren has worked for some of the biggest artist names out there, including Biffy Clyro, Liam Gallagher, Royal Blood, James Arthur, The Streets, Emile Sande & Bugsy Malone amongst many. Darren also runs his own successful Youtube channel (@DarrenMostyn) where he shares DaVinci Resolve tips that he’s gathered throughout his professional career. This Masterclass will give you an insight into what differentiates the grade on Music Promos from his work on documentary’s (BBC, ITV, C4, C5, Amazon, SKY) and how DaVinci Resolve plays a central part to that.
