Our Blackmagic Fusion Masterclass is now available on-demand.


We did more than 12 Hours of bespoke training by Blackmagic Design Master Trainer / BBC-Trained Post Specialist, Jamie Dickinson.


Jamie has more than 20 years of experience at the BBC and has given bespoke color training courses for the likes of HBO and NBC in New York, WGBH in Boston and BBC in London.


Here’s some detail and a description of the Fusion workshop -


The topics on this course were selected to provide a solid understanding of the main concepts in Blackmagic Design Fusion. Using commonly occurring tasks, like keying and tracking, you’ll learn and understand many important fundamental concepts in Fusion and compositing.


If you’re an editor, a colourist or a complete beginner new to Fusion, this will help demystify the Fusion Page and it will get you working with nodes with all the benefits that can bring to your workflow. This is a great selection of topics to get people started on using Fusion.
