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. Some lesser related credits should still
be submitted to the miscellaneous 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.
