Filmography Credits

Assistant directors

    Assistant director is generally a multiple credit for modern films, although on older films, it is typical to find only a single, undifferentiated credit for assistant director. Note that it is currently our policy also to place credits for direction on secondary units in the assistant director section; this includes assistant directors on those units. Please note that supervising directors should be submitted to the director section. Some lesser related credits should still be submitted to the additional crew section, such as runner, production intern, production assistant, and assistant to director. However, there are some exceptions to this: trainee assistant director credits (e.g., DGA trainee) should be submitted to the assistant director section. A list of the occupations currently being used can be displayed by clicking on the gray list icon ( ) next to the occupation field.
