Digital Imaging Technician (DIT)

The role of a DIT is an ever expanding but critically important role in today's digital shoots. A DIT ensures all data is accurately transferred from camera to multiple hard drives using a checksum, logs and updates important metadata (scene, shot, take, circle, etc), and provides transcodes and dailies for producer and director review. In addition, they work closely with the D.P. to develop the on-set look of the project, which will then inform the color decisions in post. Mostly commonly this includes creating and applying LUTs to field monitors and dailies, helping determine proper exposure, and addressing any color issues that may arise.
