DIT OR DATA WRANGLER
Well you know you’ve arrived when your job title gets changed but you’re still doing the job! With the advent of tapeless cameras we’ve seen the introduction of a new position on video crews, the data wrangler. This person is responsible for making sure the datacards or drives are safe, the information copied and logged correctly – there are no second chances with this new technology.
And now the data wrangler has become the DIT – or Digital Information Technician; personally, I rather liked data wrangler, it conjured up some fun images, but maybe DIT better suits the IT element of the role.
Wonder what will be next?
