Taylor's Media and Communication Academics Trained on the DaVinci Resolve 18 - Professional Video Editing Tools used by Hollywood Professionals

In late February, the academic staff members from the School of Media and Communication (SOMAC) participated in a 3-day training workshop on DaVinci Resolve, a professional video editing software. The workshop, titled "The Beginners Guide to DaVinci Resolve with End-User Certification Training," aimed to provide participants with foundational skills in using the software.

DaVinci Resolve is a versatile software solution that integrates editing, color correction, visual effects, motion graphics, and audio post-production tools used by Hollywood professionals. Its intuitive interface caters to beginners and offers advanced features for professionals. By streamlining various tasks into a single platform, DaVinci Resolve enables users to work seamlessly without the need to switch between applications, resulting in quicker workflows and superior outcomes.

The training was conducted by Mr. Isazaly Isa, a seasoned Post-Producer and Certified DaVinci Resolve Master Trainer from Kino-i Pictures Sdn Bhd. Kino-i Pictures is a company that aims to discover and promote the works of new talents while providing the industry with a pool of talented and highly-skilled professionals with the belief that by nurturing these upstarts, Kino-i Pictures will be supplying Malaysia with fresh creative minds to further Malaysia’s goal of being a developed nation filled with the richness of arts and crafts.

Mr. Isazaly, known for his work on various productions including the recent movie 'Rain Town', covered essential topics such as video editing techniques, audio editing, and color grading. His expertise and industry experience offered valuable insights into effective DaVinci Resolve usage. The workshop concluded with a one-hour online test, allowing participants three attempts to obtain end-user certification in DaVinci Resolve 18. This certification serves as a validation of participants' competency in utilizing the software for their professional endeavors.

The SOMAC academic staff members' success in passing the certification test on their first attempt highlighted the effectiveness of the workshop in imparting practical skills and knowledge in DaVinci Resolve. This achievement was a significant milestone, equipping them with essential skills to enhance their video editing capabilities.

With the lecturers now proficient in DaVinci Resolve, they are prepared to teach the module to students, ensuring the transfer of knowledge and skills to future learners and expanding the pool of individuals skilled in this software. Furthermore, students completing the class can advance their skills by taking the certification exam offered by Blackmagic Design. Becoming certified users will validate their proficiency, enhance their credibility, and increase their marketability in the video editing field.
