Members can now upload a PDF resume (updated 2-5-19)

Employers and members search the online membership database on a daily basis. It is important to keep your profile and contact information up-to-date.

Members have the option to upload up to three different PDF Resumes to their profiles. It is recommended to use a naming convention so employers can easily determine the difference in resumes.  Ie. VFX Resume, Assistant Editor Resume, Sound Designer resume, ADR Resume, etc.

PDF Resume

What is a PROFILE vs RESUME?

Your profile is accessible by the general public (unless you specify otherwise). Adding Credits, Work History and Specializations will display in the Advanced Member Search. 

When logged in, members can also see your contact information and uploaded PDF resume.

Prospective employers and members searching the Available for Work List see all of the above plus Professional Summary, Certifications, References, Skills/Systems, Languages and Notes when provided.

What is the advantage of filling out all of the sections of the profile if you have already uploaded your own resume?

Prospective employers can search based on classification, skills, specializations, languages, region and “keywords.”  Some employers look for very specific skillsets, so it is highly suggested to always complete the specializations and skills section to ensure your profile is found. 

Additional information can be found at


What does the interface of the Available for Work List look like?


Once Search Criteria has been generated, employers have the ability to save their notes, save contact info for future use and search a member’s network.

Search Member’s Network (updated 2-5-19)

Make this feature more useful by adding additional crew members to your credits or work history.  It’s easier for an employer to hire someone they have a personal connection with.  If you enter crew members you’ve worked with, this might help provide referral opportunities.

Example: In my Credit, I listed Scott George as a fellow crew member.  Because he is in the Guild’s database, his name is a hyperlink and is linked to his profile.

Of our 8,200 active members, we currently have approximately 7,900 members with passwords to the website.  Of those, 4,200 have completed a profile.  

Your participation will help make the Guild’s site the number one resource for hiring post production professionals!

Advanced member search (updated 2-5-19)

The Advanced Member Search function is more concise and allows members to search specifically for members by name, classification, region, affiliation, agent and a phonetic search if unsure of spelling.

Stay Informed About Upcoming Events (updated 6-22-18)

Home Page Toolkit Calendar
The Toolkit lists the two most current upcoming events in both Los Angeles and New York.

Website Calendar

Subscribe to the Calendar
This feature updates your personal calendar when events are posted, and is updated in real time. These links were just improved, so you will need to "unsubscribe" and "resubscribe" using the new east and west coast links, as shown here.

Event Order
All events are listed in chronological order for two calendar months. Events are color coordinated by region. Los Angeles is red and New York is purple.

Calendar Views
Members can narrow the view of this info by selecting Event Type or Event Region.

You can also choose to view your calendar either by Day or Monthly view.

My Reservations
You can easily change your reservation by visiting My Profile > Announcements or the Calendar if you need to change your RSVP. Due to the large number of no shows at events, maximum reservations are set to be exceeded. This prevents us from guaranteeing a seat even though you’ve RSVPd.

Please login to review your settings as changes have recently been applied.  Previous notification selections may have been altered.  Our apologies for any inconvenience!
