In this course, we'll dig into the equipment needed, how the role collaborates on-set including responsibilities, and the technical info behind media devices. From having a system to keep fresh media available to camera, making verified backups and QC’ing footage, to creating reports and managing storage (and time), this class will cover the most important aspects of media management on digital productions.
