Benefits of a Media, Film, & Photography  internship:

  • Valuable exposure – Working in a creative media team allows you to familiarize yourself with all the different role players. From the camera crew to the caterers, you’ll gain an important understanding of how each element fits together on a production.

  • On-set learning – Being on location or in the studio enables you to see firsthand how it all works. There are unique and specific requirements when it comes to professional dealings with media teams and the best way to learn is on the job. Interns can expect valuable, onsite crash courses in the appropriate pace and etiquette of film and photography crews.

  • A dynamic daily routine – If you can’t see yourself sitting behind the same desk for five days a week, you’ll enjoy the variety that comes with film and media work. Some productions will be shooting on the beach, while others might see you on the balcony of a building; the only constant element is teamwork.

  • The development of essential skills – During your internship, you’ll likely spend a few days learning the ropes in the office. Once you’ve found your feet, you’ll be able to move into other areas of production and build specific competencies in the areas that you prefer.
