  1. Assistant director

    The role of an assistant director on a film includes tracking daily progress against the filming production schedule, arranging logistics, preparing daily call sheets, checking cast and crew, and maintaining order on the set. They also have to take care of the health and safety of the crew. The role of an assistant to the director is often confused with assistant director but the responsibilities are entirely different. The assistant to the director manages all of the directors in development, pre-production, while on set, through post-production and is often involved in both personal management as well as creative aspects of the production process. Historically, assistant directing was a stepping stone to directing work; Alfred Hitchcock was an AD, as well as Akira Kurosawa. This was when the role was more general and encompassed all aspects of filmmaking such as set design and script editing. This transition into film directing is no longer common in feature films, as the role has focused into a more logistical and managerial position. It is more common now for an assistant director to transition to a theatre production management or producer role than to directing, with contemporary exceptions such as James McTeigue.

Examples of assistant director in a Sentence

  1. Michael Zinberg:

    The background of stand-up is when I sit down on Monday for a reading and there’s a great line, I want to do it that night, i do n’t want to wait until Friday. I was afraid we ’d over-rehearse it and it would lose that immediacy … We ’d read the script and I ’d say to Writer Michael Zinberg, ‘ I know where I can put that and that, ’ so I really have to learn are these three pages. Actors are famous for that. Brando did it. We tried an ear piece, but it was read by an assistant director, and he was totally emotionless. There was no spark in his voice so it did n’t work.
