Take your colour grading to the next level in Final Cut Pro!!


If you've ever felt lost when it comes to colour work, I feel your pain! I know the struggle:

  • online tutorials that conflict or don't tell the whole story

  • not knowing where to start or what makes footage look good

  • unnatural skin tones

  • applying a LUT to find that it looks bad


I've designed this course to resolve all this and more. This is all the knowledge I wish I knew when I started out with video, (too) many years ago.


In this downloadable course, you'll get:

  • Step-by-step workflow giving you a structured approach to get pro results

  • Beginning to end walkthroughs

  • A solid understanding of the tools and scopes featured in Final Cut Pro

  • Foundational knowledge of colour theory and its application in Hollywood

  • Where to get the best free LUTs, and more importantly, how to get the best from any LUTs

  • Various filming tips to help up your game


As with my last bestselling course on the GH5, I'll be aiming to keep this updated and build on it over time. Right now it contains everything you need for professional results on the latest 2019 release of Final Cut Pro.


Hope to see you in there!
