The Daytime Directing Initiative will give participants educational exposure to the process of directing dramatic serials The Young and the Restless and/or The Bold and the Beautiful.
This is not employment and participants will not be doing any work for the shows. Participants will be required to be familiar with the shows.
The goal is to provide an experiential learning opportunity for talented and diverse candidates with an interest in directing dramatic serials.
The eight (8) week program will cover the following topics:
- The function of the Directing Team (Director, AD, Stage Manager, and Production Associate) as well as other crew positions and responsibilities
- Analysis of the script – blocking, floor plans, dramatic intent
- Observation of the Directing process from the floor and the booth
- The editing process, including post production sound
This educational process will afford emerging, diverse directors first-hand exposure to directing in the daytime drama arena.
In addition to the opportunity to observe the technical aspects of the process, this learning experience allows participants to begin to form relationships with producers and network executives.
