A message from the
National Executive Director

Welcome to the website for the Art Directors Guild, IATSE Local 800. Our new site represents many years of work by the Website Re-Design Committee, chaired by Susan Bolles, and a full year of intuitive development by the Brooklyn–based design firm, Anton & Irene. We hope all visitors to the site have a positive user experience, where non-members and members alike can familiarize themselves with what our Guild and our talented members have to offer. I hope members use our site to productively advance their careers and enhance their sense of community.

We are an organization of many visual crafts combined as one strong union, and we foster a welcoming and diverse culture. As an organization, the ADG is committed to fair wages, the enforcement of the terms and conditions of the various contracts that our members work under, safety in the workplace and promoting the professional interests of all of our members as visual artists in film, television and streaming.

The staff below are committed to maintaining a culture of integrity, fairness and the furthering of the best interests of our members. We look forward to your questions, comments and working together to bring a brighter future to our communities.
