Visiting or working on film sets could involve some very glamorous locations and a freelance career as a digital imaging technician could take you all over the world. On big feature films you will work as part of a team, with each person taking on different camera footage, while on smaller projects you could work independently. The tools of your trade are high-powered computers that have the processing power to handle many hours of high resolution footage.
TV programmes, advertising, promotional videos, and feature films all shoot many hours of footage on digital cameras, in order to get the material they need for an excellent finished product. It isn’t only the acting that needs to be perfect, the framing of a shot, lighting, and unwanted reflections and shadows can all impact the quality of the work.
