Intern - Research & Development
Full Time Unpaid Internship
R&D Internship for Fun, Edgy TV Production Company
We are an edgy, established, independent production company that creates premium unscripted content, aka: reality and documentary television. Our clients include Netflix, HGTV, Discovery, Food, Nat Geo, Travel, and E!/Bravo, among others.
We seek interns for our Research & Development team. Because we're in CoVid times, this is a virtual internship - you can be anywhere; however, if you are in/near NYC, there will likely be some in-person educational opportunities. Either way, you will report directly to Producers and undertake a variety of learning missions: casting, writing, editing, idea-having, research, participating in creative meetings, local shoots, busting international spy rings, and bringing the all-important electricity to the synaptic firings of our collective creative brain. Want to know how a show goes from concept to commission? This internship demystifies that process. Note: this is an unpaid internship for matriculating students, designed to further the intern's education and satisfy their program requirements. We wholeheartedly welcome those seeking an opportunity for college credit or pursuing a supervised practicum. We will need a letter from your college or university approving this internship.
Intelligent, enterprising, creative, curious, communicative. Have a broad palette of interests, a feel for pop culture, a nose for character and story. You need not have a formal background in media or production (English majors welcome), but it won't hurt if you know some basic editing software skills (Avid, Final Cut, Premiere, etc). It is vital that you can write, research, troubleshoot and excise the word ''can't'' from your vocabulary (at least during office hours).
The To Apply:
Yeah, yeah, please send us the resume boasting about your college credentials and what experience and skills you have, links to any relevant sites / reels... but usually the thing that most impresses us is an original cover letter demonstrating you're the person who should be here. If you submit the same copy-and-paste cover letter you've sent to a hundred other internships, we probably will not respond. After all, this craft is about people and stories. So, person reading this: tell us your story. Make your cover letter count! Introduce us to your brain. Thrill us.
This is a 100% remote internship for the spring semester, roughly starting at the beginning of Jan - April/May. All interns must commit to min 3 days/week.
