Practical DIT Dailies Workshop with Von Thomas and the ICA

Learn the skills necessary to work as a DIT, an essential and ever-evolving role on set.


This workshop will teach you the skills necessary to work as a DIT, an essential and ever-evolving role on set. This workshop concentrates on the production of dailies, and all of the tools, software and skills required to work quickly and efficiently. You will learn about the latest gear and techniques and the artistry of the DIT.

This class begins by teaching you how to backup camera files all the way through to handing off a shuttle drive with finished dailies to the editor or post house.

This class is limited to 16 people to ensure that you get plenty of practical experience. Instructor Von Thomas creates a relaxed environment in which you will become more confident in the position of DIT. Computers will be provided for you.
