The ManifestWorks Application

To learn more about the program, please explore our website, but here are some general notes: We typically have two workshops a year, with one that starts in February and a second in September. Full-day classes occur every Saturday at locations throughout Los Angeles. If you are accepted, and do well, you will be given occasional opportunities to work as a freelance Production Assistant during the week, with the idea that you will be ready for full-time work at the completion of the 3-month program. If you are engaged in other full-time commitments (school, a job you don’t want to leave), it will limit your ability to to take full advantage of ManifestWorks.

There are three steps to applying:

  1. Complete the application below,
  2. Complete a follow-up survey, and
  3. Write an email to us, letting us know your application is complete and giving us a little information as to why you should be considered. Please send the email, or any questions, to: info@manifestworks.org

When all three are completed will you be considered. 


Remember: ManifestWorks is about providing real opportunity for dynamic careers. We are looking for participants ready for a transformative experience. Failure to follow simple directions or submitting sloppy applications—like a late arrival to our workshops—often predicts a level of carelessness that will undermine your success professionally, and you will be asked to apply again for a subsequent session, when you are ready to make a better impression on us and those that might hire you. 

Take time with your application, your survey and your follow up email. We want to get to know you, and to be in a position to help you change your life. If you try your hardest, we will help you gain the skills you need.

Please note that if you don't complete the application in one sitting, it can't be saved so that you can come back to it later. Give yourself an hour or so to complete it.
