Art Department Trainee


We are currently looking for two Art Department Trainees. The trainees work varies greatly from production to production. On large scale productions with a big art department, they will often work closely with the art department coordinator, providing backup and doing basic running duties between the art department office, the drawing and construction team and the production office.

On smaller scale productions, there’s likely to be more scope for creative input. During pre-production for example, they might work with assistant art directors recording detailed measurements of locations and then move into the drawing studio to make sure the draughtspersons have what they need. They may be responsible for ordering and collecting art department drawing and model-making materials and might even help with the construction of scale models for sets.

During filming, they might help the standby art director and art department coordinator with any last-minute requests or changes to the sets.

Essential Criteria:

  • A keen interest in film & TV drama or art
  • Able to juggle changing situations and manage your own time
  • Good with people and can communicate well
  • Organised and able to work as part of a team or on occasions, on your own

Desirable Criteria:
