I once joked with my doctor while he was operating on my hand for a nerve-damage problem. It took him about 5 minutes total (including giving me a shot to numb the area). I laughed and said, "wow, that's a great deal for you -- 5 minutes, $5000. I'm in the wrong line of work!" He grinned and said, "I get paid this much because I know where not to cut." Good point.
A great colorist can save you money in post because they can get directly to where you need to go in terms of color. They can also suggest different looks and solutions for photographic problems you might not have thought of.
I have no problem that you're trying to learn Resolve, and you're working on a free project. I objected only to your language, which to me, kind of diminishes the work and skill of colorists. If you had said, "hey, I need to learn just enough to get by and do some minimal color-correction on a freebie project," that's much different than saying "I need to learn this at a professional level in my spare time in three days." The basics you can learn in 3 days, provided you have the background to deal with the rest. Really learning color correction takes a lot longer.
Warren Eagles is definitely a top, experienced guy who can teach you whatever you need to know about Resolve:
This helped me with a bunch of conforming issues I had last week.
