Full Time Unpaid Internship
It's the magic of immersing yourself in a motion picture masterpiece, or a new track from your favorite band, or the spectacle of a live Broadway show. It's hard to define and even harder to create, but that's what we do at The Walt Disney Studios. Ours is a culture of innovation, collaboration and creativity. We raise the bar, then step over it, blazing trails through the production and distribution of world class entertainment around the globe. If you want to help tell compelling, enduring stories through movies, music or stage plays, then we want to hear from you.
We currently have an opportunity to intern for the Post Production and Visual Effects department within the Disney Live Action group. We set up, budget, schedule and manage the Post Production and Visual Effects aspects of all the Live Action features.
