Difference between DIT and Data Manager?

Cameras, Post Production

In the past few years, we’ve been hearing more and more about a new on-set position: DIT or Digital Imaging Technician, or a Data Manager. Why are these mysterious editor-like crew members sitting at their computer all day seemingly just watching status bars and percentages all day? Are they a DIT or a Data Manager? Why do we need them?

Lights Out Short Film

Film, Lights Out
As you may have heard, at Decade Pictures we are getting close to a picture lock on our latest project Lights Out. Last October, we travelled to Ashland, OH, bringing with us a seventeen member crew from New York City.

Lights Out

“Lights Out is a short film about Bruce who is afraid of the dark. While staying at his childhood home, Bruce comes face to face with his greatest fear.”

We had four extremely talented actors from the Ohio area who were all key in the success of the Lights Out shoot. Paul Shaia, as our main character Bruce, Chase Anderson, as Little Bruce, Michael Waggoner, as Bruce’s Father, and Heather Anderson, as Bruce’s Mother.
