RTS North East and the Border held a masterclass on the role played by digital imaging technicians in TV and film at Tyneside Cinema’s Digital Lounge in late February.
The technicians work with directors of photography and are responsible for image quality, colour correction and managing a production’s workflow.
Presented by Caden Elliott, the event covered the history, roles and expectations of a digital imaging technician. It attracted an audience of students, lecturers, producers and enthusiasts.
The Digital Lounge was originally a newsreel cinema and has the feel of an art deco cinema, but with the addition of new digital equipment it was a fitting venue to discuss the role of digital imaging technicians.
