HelloHi, I'm David owner of LADigitaltech.com, a Los Angeles and NY based DIT service provider since 2006. The majority of my projects has revolved around the fashion, automotive, lifestyle, and retail catalog projects. In the past 3 years I have expanded to video DIT-Data Wrangler projects in a variety of camera formats, and productions.
I have worked on a number of celebrity and sport projects, including Nicki Manaj, Sean "Diddy" Combs, Snoop Dogg, Jessica Simpson, Beck, LeBron James, Ronaldinho, and a variety of others. I have participated in a variety of commercials, for companies such as Honda, Lexus, Ford, Nissan, Kawasaki, KTM Motorcycles, ESPN, Clairol, Playboy, PNC Bank, Best Buy, Amway, Asics, Nike, Budweiser, Nickelodeon, VF Jeans, and UCLA.
I have worked with many prominent photographers such as David LaChappell, Tom Munro, James White, Carter Smith, James Russell, Dewey Nicks, Trevor Pearson, JJ Miller, Paul Mobley, and many others.
I have a very strong work ethic, and have no problems moving sand bags, C-stands, and picking up trash to help the production. I've worked in the rain, snow, 125 degree heat and up to 18 hours a day. I'm not a whiner nor someone who needs to check their phone every 2 minutes. I am happy to tailor the workflow to best match your requirements.
Technical:My main job is to ensure all your data is safe and redundantly backed up. I verify all data using Checksum software and confer with team members who will receive the files downstream to ensure I provide the data they wish to receive. I prefer to have 3 copies of each job and will ship with different carriers should the job be of the utmost in priority. I verify the delivery has occurred and am ready should any questions come up.
I typically work on a couple of MacBook Pro's with external monitors or Imacs. Every job and budget varies so I can scale up or down depending on the circumstances and requirements.
I typically work in C1 Pro, Phocus, Lightroom, and Photoshop. On the video side, I use FCPX, Resolve, Edit Ready, and Red Cine-x.
I'm flexible, on the workflow, the applications used or how you want to work. Where or how I work is not relevant, in the galleries, you'll see me with a cart, a 7/11 umbrella, and with a nothing but a tripod. (it was zero degrees!) What is important to me is the job is secure, you trust me, I bring something positive to the set, and one who will bring a secure feeling to the project while understanding when to speak and when to keep quiet.
Prior to my DIT business, I was a lighting technician, and 1st assistant, I have worked in New Zealand, Russia, Hong Kong, Canada, Jamaica, Great Britton, South Korea, and throughout the USA. I don't have answers to every problem, but I can usually resolve any problem on set.
I am in Westwood, on the West Coast and CT. East Coast, a short Metro North ride to the city, and Boston. (To avoid any conflicts, I am a Dodger, Angels, Clippers, and Laker fan.)
