about us

celebrating our 25th year, dft is more than just a post house. we're known for our vfx, previs, and finishing work, as well as securing and transporting your camera masters in the cloud (dailies), and recently restoring lost libraries with our film scanners and proprietary remastering workflows. however, we are truly an education and innovation company, focused on democratizing technology so every voice can tell their story with the best tools, regardless of location or limits. we are for and from a different kind of thinker. that's the dft way.

//we strive to democratize technology - empowering anyone, from any culture and corner of the world to tell meaningful stories, without limitations

//we believe stories matter & are the highest form of expression - we'll stop at nothing to facilitate & enhance anyone's ability to bring theirs to life

//we are in a relentless pursuit of innovation - this enables us to provide the best tools, services & education to empower any storyteller

what we believe

//innovation - innovation for us is a way of life. we are relentless about it, in anything we do, within the company, with clients and our community

//creativity in all we do - in storytelling, in our products, in solutions we offer our clients, in approaches we take internally

//inclusion - anybody within the company has a seat at the table - there is no hierarchy, and all ideas are not only welcome, but key to our growth

//excellence - we strive to create the most effective products and provide first class service to our clients

//people - we are a safe haven for the coolest creatives and technologists, who possess an eternal curiosity and love for storytelling and innovation

we can do hard things together

this is a team - no one is an island

we are comprised of absolutely legendary superheroes. no one single person can go it alone. this team exists to summit the kind of exceptional challenges that require all of us to amplify and offer strengths while covering and carrying when and where there may be a weak moment or area.

dft has four teams - our iccosphere

these teams, like the individuals who comprise them, are interdependent, and interdisciplinary.

foundational team care

ownership & championship

concerns, complaints, congrats and compliments - these go up to those charged with helping and serving a team at dft. we celebrate and learn together.


regular gatherings and collective idea sharing that helps the team push past bottle necks, as well as individual check-ins to foster professional growth and communication.


individual opportunities to learn from one another - be it larger context or in-the-moment feedback - is the care and weight of those charged with leadership and managing dft's prosperity. our floor, door and table is open - we all have seats, and we stay at the table until we've faced the challenge together.
