ABOUT

DZDC is currently headed by Dan Carney, a half-chinese, self proclaimed colourist, DIT, and editor.

After rejecting a life of studying engineering in his teenage years, his newfound love of pointing cameras at things thrived, leading him to develop his skills across the spectrum of film production. As his obsession with colour took over, many long stints as a runner in a London facilities house convinced him to turn his efforts towards colour grading. He eventually wound up between working as a paint and roto artist at Framestore, and studying film production at the Arts University Bournemouth. Now having escaped data wrangling at Industrial Light & Magic, somehow without breaking a single NDA, he finally sits in a room with a window, as a freelance colourist.

Since bumbling down this route many years ago, he has been cutting and grading a large variety of projects and films, from fictions, to music videos, to advertising, to corporate, giving him the experience needed to tackle any job for any client.

Utilising a colour critical 10bit display suitable for intensive cinema work, a machine capable of DCP authoring in house, and a borderline hoarder number of hard drives, we can accommodate almost any project of any size.
