On set and on location, Digital Imaging Technicians (DITs) are transforming the way digital films are being made. We'll take a look at how the DIT's on-set role has dramatically changed and how directors, DPs and budgets can benefit from the right tools in capable DIT hands.
In this webinar, StudioDaily's Beth Marchant will interview Jody Neckles, one of the industry's preeminent DITs. We'll explore the emergence of the DIT role and new on-set tools, such as ASSIMILATE's SCRATCH Lab, and how they have changed digital productions. Beth and Jody will discuss a range of topics to help directors, DPs and ADs, plus those interested in transitioning to DIT roles, get a firmer grasp of their on-set options. Jody will also show you what he means by firing up SCRATCH Lab to illustrate his points.
