On January 11th, I went to FedEx and mailed my application to the DGA Assistant Directors Training Program. Only to notice later that I misspelled a big word on my resume, I rushed back up there to change it…thankful that it didn’t get picked up yet.
Basically this is a 2 year training program, I would live in New York, get paid, and get placed on movies and tv shows to work with other directors. Past trainees have worked on things like Dan in Real Life, Ugly Betty, Ladder 49, Julie and Julia…yeah not a bad gig huh?
I will be going to New York in February to take a test. After that I will know if I have made it to Phase 2 of the process. I would greatly appreciate your prayers, If you are interested in reading the paper I had to write for the program let me know. I will keep you updated.
