I've also been on two jobs where the DP/photographer could not light
a simple shot one was an outdoor Malibu swimming pool with a woman,
this shoot a commercial had a full lighting crew 2 10k HMI's, plus 6
PA's, multiple Assistants and two DIT's..
Another was in studio again a full crew couldn't light it tried to
blame the DIT LOL.. both of those jobs it was made clear, I was only
to make sure the files were not corrupt, named correctly, and we had
copies... And never to speak to the DP/Photographer directly...
Best of luck to all of you with or without a DIT, it doesn't matter
what happens as long as you get the next job...

A couple of observations.
Lots of DPs have “horror stories” of bad experiences
they had with a DIT on a job.
We also have been dropped into situations where we
had bad experiences with a gaffer or a focus puller or a
grip…believe me I can fill a book (and just might some day)_
…but nobody works with a crappy focus puller and
resolves to pull their own focus from then on…
…but some people have a bad experience with a DIT
and resolve to avoid using one from then on.

I feel like I’m in some cheap
Sci-Fi movie and have slipped into an alternative
I started this whole series of
threads by trying to help people in low budget
movies find a way to work within ACES.
Now we start including $200M
dollar movies in the discussion.
Get a grip FFS!
This is an international list
