Art Directors Launch New Apprentice Program


The Art Directors Guild (IATSE Local 800) has established its first apprenticeship program designed to develop and prepare new talent for the art of production design.

A wide call for applicants from across the country will go out March 4 to colleges, universities and recent graduates. Invitations for interviews will be sent to 10 finalists, with the top two selected going on to participate in the program.

Production designers Jack Fisk, John Iacovelli and Thomas Walsh will serve as co-chairmen of the program.

Each selected production apprentice will be mentored by working production designers and art directors, and will be exposed to a wide range of workplace experiences – feature, episodic, commercials, reality shows, live events and theme parks. The apprentices will be required to work 260 days and, pending their successful mentorship review, will be invited to join the ADG as an assistant art director.
