So you want to be an intern?
Who should apply: We are looking for film lovers with an interest in pre-production and the inner workings of a film office. We love creatives with strong writing and administrative skills and a flexible, open schedule. Any photography or video editing experience is a plus as well. We like to remind our applicants that this is an office internship where you will work approx. two/three days per week (weekdays only) for around 5 hours each of those days (we will consider more or less hours depending on your school requirement). Since this is a non-paying internship, every effort is made to tailor things around work and school schedules whenever possible. However, it is required that all interns be able to set and maintain their work hours so that projects can be planned and carried out.
The best candidates for the internship are current students who live within commuting distance of our Richmond office and have reliable transportation. Interns are usually university students in film or a related field. ALL APPLICANTS MUST BE ABLE TO RECEIVE CLASS CREDIT.
