Eligibility Criteria

In order to gain full membership you must have at least three feature film and/or TV drama credits in the capacity for which you are applying. For supplementary membership you will need one credit.

Full membership eligibility criteria

In order to gain full membership you must have at least three scripted feature film and/or TV drama credits in the capacity for which you are applying. The credits should be on a complete production, this will not include additional photography, demonstrating a range of skills and experiences on different types of production.

2nd unit credits may count towards your membership application as long as they are full-time and and dependent on the length of time worked. Post production credits might also count towards a full membership application in the same way.

Length of time working in the industry, references, experience with industry software, and periods of time out of the industry may also be taken into consideration by the membership committee when reviewing applications.

To support a full member application you will need to have three referees. These must be people that you have directly worked for on three complete and separate productions within the grade of membership you're applying for. (e.g. if applying as a Production Manager, your references must be from productions in which you were the PM)

Your three references should also be from your three most recent feature film and/or TV drama credits whilst at the grade of membership you're applying for.

At least one referee must be a Production Guild member. If you are unable to nominate three Production Guild members we will accept a maximum of two references from people you have recently worked with, who are of comparable standing to Production Guild members within the industry.

The references will help the membership committee to determine whether your experience in that role meets the same standards of its existing full members within The Production Guild.

Supplementary eligibility criteria

Supplementary membership is available to those working in production who do not have enough experience to join as a full Production Guild member but have adequate experience to work in a production, accounts, locations, ADs, post production or VFX.

The process for supplementary applications is the same as full membership applications except you are asked to demonstrate just one feature film or TV drama credit. This can be at any level. You will need to provide details of one referee you worked for whilst gaining this credit.

Your reference should be from your most recent feature film or TV drama credit. The referee does not need to be a Production Guild member but they must be of comparable standing to PG members within the industry.

Length of time working in the industry, references, experience with industry software, and periods of time out of the industry may also be taken into consideration by the membership committee when reviewing applications.

After completing 3 feature films and/or TV dramas satisfactorily with a range of different senior practitioners and experience, you are then expected to apply for full membership. The maximum period for supplementary membership is three years.

If you haven't already moved up to full membership within three years, you will be asked to apply for it. If you do not meet the criteria for full membership, you may be asked to relinquish your membership unless there are exceptional circumstances. Each member and their circumstances will be treated on an individual basis.
