2019 Second AD Tea NY

Second Assistant Director Tea in New York

January 26, 2019 An Eastern AD/UPM Council Second AD Committee Event

Second Assistant Directors enjoyed an afternoon of conversation and exploration when the Eastern AD/UPM Council’s Second AD Committee hosted their seventh annual Second AD Afternoon Tea on January 26. The gathering in the boardroom of the Guild’s New York offices was designed so that members of this category exchange ideas with their colleagues and chart developments since the same meeting last year. The event was also a forum where they could have their voices heard and discuss topics relating to their profession.

Following the welcome, Committee Co-Chairs Arianne Apicelli, Dana Zolli and John Silvestri outlined the schedule for the meeting. Then the assembly broke into smaller groups moderated by Second AD Committee members where they answered questions and engaged in roundtable discussions featuring topics such as staffing on additional shooting units, mentoring, and ideas for future training modules. DGA staff members were also available to answer questions.
