Digital Imaging Technician (DIT)

The person responsible for image quality control, on-set color correction, and managing a production workflow. Not all productions have a DIT, but this is the person with an arsenal of toys to tweak the look of the camera in the field. This position is often confused with a Data Wrangler but they are entirely different jobs.


This person controls the project’s artistic and dramatic aspects, visualizing the script or screenplay while guiding the technical crew and actors. They set the protocol and standards, as well as priorities for the project. Often, it’s their baby.

Director of Photography (DOP) (DP)

The person who is responsible for the look of the project. They compose the shots and paint with light, so they often work closely with the Gaffer and Key Grip for what is needed. They also supervise camera operators. Sometimes the DOP will also operate the camera.
