ADG Credit Maker – Applications

September 30, 2022

The Australian Directors’ Guild has opened applications for the ADG Credit Maker Program, which will support four early mid-career women and non-binary directors to attain a ‘career defining’ credit on a scripted production.

The ADG Credit Maker program is supported by Screen Australia’s umbrella Gender Matters program in partnership with the Australian Directors’ Guild and aims to increase gender diversity in HOD roles in the sector. 

All applications will be reviewed by a panel who will shortlist 20 candidates, and then four finalists will be placed with series productions. The productions will be long running or high-end series (one or half-hour format) or premium fiction in other formats. The length of the placement will be dependent on the given production, the availability of the supervising director, but will be between 6-8 weeks. Each successful participant will be remunerated at the applicable rates, and fringes and superannuation will be paid. 

Those who are successful will ‘shadow’ and be mentored by an agreed supervising director. Those undertaking the placement will then lead, with the supervising director to ‘shadows’ them in the production setting – resulting in a director credit. The supervising director and production company will be paid a modest fee for hosting placements.
