A data wrangler in movie production manages and secures digital footage. According to Data wrangler (also known as loader) in the unscripted TV industry - ScreenSkills, primary responsibilities are:

  • Backing up and labeling filmed footage.
  • Tracking distribution of filmed footage.

Secondary responsibilities may include:

  • Set runner/logger
  • Camera setup and maintenance
  • Anything else to keep the shooting process running smoothly

In short, data wranglers address this “threat”: Nice movie you’re making there, it’d be a shame if the bits never made it to editing.
