I started a new gig today and the other AD keeps talking to me like I’m his intern... I look pretty young so maybe it’s a genuine mistake but I don’t know how to explain that I’m his counterpart?

Take the bull by the horn and say “I know! We need an intern! Ok- so if we are going to be partners, why don’t we...." Remember they are simple little creatures. Use titles

They probably know you're their counterpart but assert themselves in front of you. I'd just ignore it (unless they make you do the shitty work) and assert yourself in front of your bosses in front of them. If they make you do the scraps and it's been over 3 days, if start contributing to the main flow of things, like give them feedback, suggest changes, contribute more, especially conceptually, etc. That's bound to change the power dynamics.
