Directors Guild of America
Ten years of directing theatre in the Pacific Northwest gave Ian J. Putnam the unique insight to become the thriving Assistant Director that he is today. Ian is an artist in the labyrinth that is film scheduling. The odds are always against an AD in keeping a schedule fluid, yet Ian always finds an efficient balance between the creative vision and the budget. Contributing to the creative process is the most inspiring aspect of assistant directing for Ian. Being the sounding board for the creative blueprint and producing an environment where the best work can burgeon is the reward an AD yields for making the day. Based in Los Angeles, Ian J. Putnam is available for hire worldwide.
