What's a DIT and why do I need one?

The DIT manages all aspects of the digital workflow ensuring your footage is properly captured, archived and delivered, looking as the cinematographer intended it.

My name is John Goodner and I’m a DIT.  I have over 30 years experience in visual arts and media technologies which makes me a valuable member of any film or television production.  For the last 14 years I have focused on the emerging landscape of digital cinema, helping to guide cinematographers and producers through a maze of complex and rapidly changing technologies.  I work in all different types and size productions, but probably my most well known work is being DIT on the hit FX show “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” for the last 10 seasons (2010-2021).

In addition to my technical roles, I am also an accomplished photographer and filmmaker.  I wrote and directed the award winning short film, ‘Anti-Muse’ starring Jon Polito.  You can watch it here.
