Afrinolly appointed first DaVinci resolve certified training partner in Africa


A few months ago at NAB 2017 in Las Vegas, Blackmagic Design announced a new
worldwide training and certification programme, along with certified curriculum for
DaVinci Resolve. Users can take training courses online or in person at certified
training centres. Afrinolly Limited has announced that they have been appointed the
first Certified Training Partner in Nigeria as well as in Africa.

Chike Maduegbuna, CEO Afrinolly Limited said: “We are excited to partner with
Blackmagic Design to provide a fully certified training programme for users of DaVinci
Resolve in Nigeria and Africa. This training programme will increase adoption and
expertise of the most powerful colourist tool and in turn increase the quality of post-
production jobs done here.” He went on to say, “in setting up the Afrinolly Space
creative hub, we wanted a platform to institutionalise global best practices in the area
of film/video content production and we are excited that Blackmagic Design
recognised this.”

In the recently released book The Definitive Guide to DaVinci Resolve 14,
Grant Petty, CEO Blackmagic Design said: “I think one of the most exciting things
about DaVinci Resolve 14 is that it combines a true professional video editor with the
same incredible colour correction tools used in Hollywood on high-end films and
television shows, and Fairlight audio, all in one software solution. Since adding
professional editing to DaVinci Resolve in version 10 we’ve been turning it into the
world’s best professional editor. I hope you’ll enjoy using DaVinci Resolve 14 and we
can’t wait to see the amazing work you produce!”

Afrinolly Space is a creative hub in the heart of Nigeria’s commercial city Lagos, for
filmmakers, screenwriters, mobile technology developers, animators and other
creatives. Essentially Afrinolly Space functions as “Where Technology Meets Art”. The
hub was designed for film/video content creators to make videos, collaborate with
other professionals in the production value chain, attend trainings/workshops,
network, host private screenings, and get post-production services using industry-
leading post-production equipment and resources.

“With the release of DaVinci Resolve 14, a tool originally designed for Hollywood’s
colourists has been revolutionised into an advance application for professional editing,
colour grading and audio post-production. This training programme will initially focus
on DaVinci Resolve 14 and include Editing, Colour and Audio curriculum and
certification. I am excited to have the first class in December,” says Bobola Oniwura;
creative director and Afrinolly’s Certified DaVinci Resolve trainer who returned
from the UK where he got certified.

The DaVinci Resolve 14 training will be available from Afrinolly’s training centre in
Lagos, Nigeria. For enquiries on training dates and booking, please visit the Afrinolly Space website.
