RG301: Resolve Looks & Matching Masterclass with Warren Eagles of the ICA

In this creative, two-day workshop, participants will learn how color correction can bring their movie or sequence to life.


For the first time ever, AbelCine will be offering RG-301 in a new, hybrid format. Tickets will be made available for both an in-person class experience, as well as a virtual class experience accessible via Zoom. When purchasing your ticket, please be sure to select the appropriate option – (AbelCine LA or AbelCine NY if opting for in-person, Virtual if opting for Zoom.) 

In-person class attendees will receive the same class experience as always, featuring one-on-one time with the instructor and a workstation to follow along with. 

Virtual remote attendees will receive access to the Zoom broadcast of the classroom, and will be able to ask questions of the instructor via the in-platform chat system. 

Both Virtual and In-Person attendees will get access to the class media files as well as a copy of the Zoom session recording. Please note: if you attend in person or have your camera on in the virtual session, your likeness may be captured in this recording.   

In this creative, two-day workshop, students will learn how to bring a movie or sequence to life. Students will review movie & drama sequences and discuss how the color and mood has enhanced the film. They will also learn how to create the traditional “looks” from movies, TV commercials, and music videos, as well as how to match those looks, not only shot to shot, but also to an entire scene.

Warren will address the different challenges presented by each sequence or camera, along with the different creative ways to Color them. Students then get the chance to do the same in a timed situation, like a real session but with Warren playing the client’s role. Each grade is then reviewed as a group, so simulating a client review session.

Students are encouraged to bring their own footage to work on and share with the class. We will also look at the best practices for approaching a session, when to push the grade and when to hold back. Learn from Warren about how he deals with clients in the room and how he tries to make sure they come back. Create established looks and explore how to make new ones. Remember it’s subjective so just play and have fun.

Here is a sample of some of the media used:

  • TVC beauty type commercial shot on the BMCC. Great for doing very soft/mist type looks. Great for exploring the Resolve OFX Plugins.
  • A war sequence shot on Sony F3. Fantastic for a ‘Saving Private Ryan’ Bleach Bypass grade, a hot jungle look, or the classic Day for Night feel.
  • “House of Cards” reconstruction of the classic Netflix show, shot on Arri Alexa. This includes dialogue and re-enacts the original scene.
  • BMW TVC shot on Alexa, that focuses on how we can make the car the star.
  • TV Station promo. Ideal for skin tones and matching.
  • ‘Courtroom’ problem grading challenge in ACES shot with the Arri Alexa, BMD Ursa Mini Pro, GoPro and Sony FS7 cameras.
  • A ‘Peaky Blinders’ type BBC period drama graded with a soft highlight look, then an alternate hard grainy Bleach Bypass grade.
