Announcing the names of the new Trainees accepted in the 2017 Film & Commercial Programs...


Otis, working as a DGA 2nd AD on a commercial shoot in West Virginia

OTIS FUNG (Commercial class of '09)

"DGA Commercial Trainees are the decathletes of production.  Under the supervision of a DGA 1st AD,  I had the opportunity to work in the production office, did lock ups during shooting, was responsible for the production report, assisted with talent contracts, helped set background,  liaised with multiple departments; and was present for just about every request that came over the walkie.  I learned union rules and how to run a set. As a Commercial Trainee, I had an integral part to play in the success of a shoot and loved every minute of not having a minute."
