Directors Guild-Producer Training Program

Assistant Directors Training Program

Who We Are…

The Directors Guild-Producer Training Plan was established in 1965 by the Directors Guild of America and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers. The purpose of the Program is to provide equal access to men and women of diverse backgrounds to participate in an industry sponsored program that trains people to become Second Assistant Directors in the motion picture and television industry.  Since its inception, over 530 men and women have graduated from the Program and gone on to successful careers in the entertainment business.

Upon satisfactory completion of the Program, your name will be placed on the Southern California Area Qualification List (QL), making you eligible for employment as a Second Assistant Director and eligible for membership in the Directors Guild of America.
