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 program, along with certified curriculum for DaVinci Resolve. Users can take training courses online or in person at certified training centers. Today, Afrinolly Limited is pleased to announce 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 program for users of DaVinci Resolve in Nigeria and Africa. This training program 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 institutionalize global best practices in the area of film/video content production and we are excited that Blackmagic Design recognized 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 color 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 elite colourists has been revolutionized into an advance application for professional editing, colour grading and audio post production. This training program 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 recently from the UK where he got certified.

The DaVinci Resolve 14 training will be available from their state of the art training centre in Lagos, Nigeria. For enquiry on training dates and booking, please visit
