SMPTE-NE: The Role of the DIT with Steve Sherrick

October 25, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Join SMPTE-NE for an evening with Producer, Editor, and DIT, Steve Sherrick, who will guide us through the role of the Digital Imaging Technician (DIT), from past history through its current transformation.

Over the past decade, the motion picture and television industry has seen a tremendous technological transformation. The majority of movies produced in 2017 are now captured digitally, which is the opposite of what was happening 10-15 years ago when most movies were shot on film.

The technological changes resulting from digital capture have been felt in every corner of the industry, and perhaps no role on set has been more at the forefront of this transformation than that of the Digital Imaging Technician, or DIT, for short.

In this SMPTE-NE presentation, Steve Sherrick, will guide us from the launch of the RED ONE 4K camera in 2007 through the current production landscape to see how this once, often-misunderstood job title plays a critical role in assuring that the image captured on set is faithful to the vision of the cinematographer and director. 

Click here to RSVP. This event is FREE. Doors open at 6:30pm with Refreshments. Presentation starts at 7:00pm.


Steve Sherrick has been working in the motion picture and broadcast television industry for over 20 years.
