We have created a series focusing on how to be a DIT On Set and expanding your knowledge on color correction. My DIT Derek Johnson walks you through his unique process of getting ready to be on set. He covers the tools he uses in his kit through what he does inside Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve in his color grading process.
This series is broken down into multiple parts:
- What’s In My Kit: On My Belt
- What’s In My Kit: In My Set Bag
- DIT Tools
- DIT Cart
- Data Management & Workflow
- Live Color Grading & LUTs
- Advanced Color Grading
One of the most valuable Golden Nuggets in this series covers etiquette and protocol for dealing with exposed and unexposed digital media. Derek shares his organization along with safeguards so that you do not make mistakes.
Each of these 7 articles is accompanied by a video of Derek going through each process, step by step. You will be able to follow along in the articles which include breakdowns of all of the equipment he talks about using and where you can find it so you can add it to your own kit. There are over 1.5 hours of video content dialed in to instruct you on each step of becoming a DIT.
