VU becomes Australia's first certified DaVinci Resolve trainer

DaVinci Resolve is the go-to application for many of the world’s leading screen editors, colorists and post production facilities. Victoria University has just become the first Australian university to achieve DaVinci Resolve Trainer Certification with Blackmagic Design.

This new initiative at Victoria University will enable students who previously couldn't have afforded to study screen media, an opportunity to follow their film and video dreams.

“Now, with Resolve and the new television studio post-production and facilities, Victoria University will see even more students from around Australia coming to us. We will continue to grow with Resolve and are already planning future improvements for the degree based around Blackmagic Design products.”

DaVinci Resolve has been used on most of this year’s Hollywood blockbusters including Adrift, American Animals, Deadpool 2, Hearts Beat Loud, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Madeline’s Madeline, Mile 22, The Miseducation of Cameron Post, On Chesil Beach, Sicario: Day of the Soldado, Skyscraper, Solo: A Star Wars Story, and Sorry to Bother You.

“Victoria University is always looking to explore and improve on degrees and adding Resolve to the curriculum for the Bachelor of Screen Media is a big step forward,” said Dr C-Scott. “We are adding Resolve-specific classes throughout the degree, which will include all parts of Davinci Resolve. From there, we hope our students will use the software as part of their future studies and professionally” he says.

Campus facilities at VU including a multi-camera television studio, radio studio, greenscreens and two state-of-the-art post-production mac labs, each with capacity for 20 students, will be equipped with DaVinci Resolve.
