Digital Technical Director


Technical directors - digital processes oversee the production of all digital processes that are to be included in the scenes of a film or other audiovisual product. As such, they can be considered to be involved in all of the phases of a production. Their main role is to develop technical and visual solutions for sequences which they submit for approval by the special effects supervisor or the digital production engineer. These solutions refer to digitally created movements, geometries, perspectives and the way in which objects and scenes are seen on screen, among others. These professionals are also involved in the initial design of paints, effects or compositions that will later be produced by artists and technicians. They offer advance solutions to possible problems that may arise during their creation or integration. They also oversee the work of both digital process artists and of the technical assistants who help to integrate these into the final product.
