IMPORTANT NOTICE: The CQL requires that all applicants call the office at 212-397-0930 to discuss their application prior to submission.
Setting Up Your Application
present the paperwork from your various jobs (call sheets, production
reports, pay stubs, payroll materials, crew lists, etc.) in three-ring
binders (any size) with your jobs in chronological order. For
each job, place all your call sheets and/ or production reports
first, then all your pay information. Separate each job with
a tabbed divider sheet or a colored sheet of paper. Highlight
your name on all call sheets and production reports.
- You do not need to shrink legal-sized
documents to letter-sized. Just
fold the bottom of the page to fit the binder.
- At minimum, we expect an official call
sheet and/ or production report along with a pay stub or
official payroll documents (i.e. not invoices, time cards,
or income tax forms) for every day of claimed work. If
you are missing one or more of these materials for any given
day, it may not count toward the placement requirements.
To qualify, your work must reflect direct production experience
that is specific to the duties of an Assistant Director.
Completing the Required Forms
Fill-out, sign, and insert the general information page (asking
for your address, phone, placement category, etc.) at the front
of your first binder.
Fill-out the information sheet specific to
each production page for every job. This page should
precede the job, just behind the tabbed divider sheet or colored
sheet of paper.
List all the jobs in your binders on the
table page. As
you can only fit seven jobs on this form, you may need numerous
copies. Please insert the table page(s) at the front of
your first binder, behind the general information page. Please
note: The "employer" is the production company, not
the payroll company.
Having Materials Returned
Once we have finished reviewing your application, we will ship
your application materials back at no charge.
