Blackmagic Design Presents Diving into DaVinci Resolve Studio with Shanna Maurizi

NYWIFT and Blackmagic Design will be joined by filmmaker Shanna Maurizi who will discuss her work as a colorist. With projects ranging from her recent film Sunken Treasure that won the Art and Science Award at the 56th Ann Arbor Film Festival, to VICELAND television shows such as GaycationStates of Undress and Weediquette, Maurizi will discuss how she uses color grading to enhance the art of storytelling. Maurizi’s presentation will include an overview of the tools and techniques she uses, along with what other filmmakers should know when it comes to the many aspects of color grading.

For those looking to hear more about which gear Maurizi uses, Blackmagic Design will demo its professional editing, color grading and audio post production software DaVinci Resolve Studio, as well as its other products used during post production.
