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

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.

ABOUT STEVE SHERRICK:

Steve Sherrick has been working in the motion picture and broadcast television industry for over 20 years. As a Producer, Editor, and Digital Imaging Technician, Steve has worked on a wide variety of projects — from small corporate videos to Hollywood feature films. He currently splits his time between Digital Imaging Technician and running his own production company, Sherrick Creative, LLC, which focuses on content that improves the world around us. He is also the husband of a talented artist and educator and has two amazing kids.
