In this video, I give my impression of the new Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve Mini Panel. This new panel was released about 3 weeks ago and it's a significant change from their massive "Advanced" panel in size and in price. I found plenty of things to be excited about with the panel, as well as some things I was missing. 

This review would not be possible without the support from Melrose Mac. If you're in the Los Angeles area, I'd highly recommend checking out a panel there.

Veteran colorist and ICA instructor Warren Eagles joins me on this episode of the Colorist Podcast.

Warren has been coloring for over 26 years. He’s graded a broad spectrum of projects from commercials, drama, and features. He’s best known for his work on Lock, Stock, and 2 Smoking Barrels, and recently has colored two indie features: Blue World Order and Project Eden: Vol 1.

I first came in contact with Warren 10 years ago when he created an FXPHD class for the da Vinci 2K plus. He drew back the curtain to the expensive color grading rooms that were almost impossible to gain access to. Fast forward to today, and Warren is still empowering his students with the knowledge to color through his own endeavor, the International Colorist Academy. Partnering with Kevin Shaw, they created a worldwide training program for colorists, by colorists.

On this podcast, we talk about:

  • His start in telecine and how it formed his grading style
  • How daVinci systems have changed over the years
  • Features that are still lacking from color grading systems
  • Doing visual effects work as part of the color grade
  • How color grading panels speed up his work
  • Impressions of the new Blackmagic Mini and Micro Resolve Panels
  • The differences in workflow with commercial, television and feature work
  • Keeping your clients happy and the session flowing
  • Making and keeping solid connections with DPs
  • Why the Colorist Society International is an important part of our community
  • His perspective on the reduced price of grading systems and its effect on the post production industry
