What I Do
Over the past fifteen years, Arthur Ditner has worked in post-production in a variety of roles including colorist, editor, and dailies producer. He currently teaches and writes about technology news full-time, and helps post-production supervisors get through QC failures with paint fixes in a hurry.
Arthur started his career in 2007 as a broadcast technician, monitoring the live feeds and scheduling of programming within master control (and performed many tape-to-tape dubs). In 2012, he relocated to Atlanta, GA to launch the post-production division of Sim International which included near-set dailies labs, LTO writing, turnkey Avid suites, and custom designed DIT cart rental packages. In 2015, Arthur returned to Toronto and began working as a colourist on broadcast series. In 2019 he was the senior colourist on two Netflix originals series: Jinn, and Delhi Crime.
Arthur has taught post-production courses at Humber College, the Liaison of Independent Filmmakers Toronto, Seneca College, Blackmagic Design, and Sheridan College. He has also mentored up and coming talent as part of YouTube’s NextUp programme, and has been a guest speaker at OCAD and SCAD universities.
