The Art Directors Guild (IATSE, Local 800) is calling for applicants for its third annual training program designed to develop and prepare new talent for the art and craft of production design.
The guild issued a call for applicants to colleges, universities and recent graduates from across the country. Invitations for interviews will be sent to 10 finalists, with the top three selected to participate in the program.
The participants will be mentored by working production designers and art directors and will be exposed to a wide range of workplace experiences, including production in feature films, television, commercials, reality shows, live events and theme parks. The trainees will be required to work 260 days, and pending their successful mentorship review, will be invited to join the ADG as assistant art directors.
