We are a Beverly Hills-based production company with several feature films, scripted TV series, and reality show productions in development. We are looking for an excitable script development intern that MUST have some level of script development experience to be considered for this position.

Individuals must be punctual, creative, self-motivated and most importantly ready to learn while hitting the ground running in an open environment where they will be exposed to all aspects of script development. Although the intern will learn about the script development process, candidates must ALREADY have a strong understanding of narrative structure and the essence of a good script.
We're looking for a candidate who is serious about working within the industry. We will not require an ongoing of coverage and simple patching of calls.

-- Reading scripts
-- Research of various sorts
-- Providing important creative input/edits on our packages and scripts.
--Light administrative duties that will prove instrumental in navigating your way through the industry (i.e scheduling meetings, working one-on-one with writers, directors, talent, as we see fit).
-- Additional tasks as we see fit, that will vet you for a possible position as an assistant or coordinator someday.
You will have involvement in multiple facets of script development on a broad spectrum of different formats from un-scripted reality to hard-hitting feature films. Candidate must hold zero biases regarding genres/style--we do it all.
-- Voracious READER of scripts we provide access to (VERY IMPORTANT).
-- A critical mind to apply to an analytical understanding of script structure & storytelling.
-- Highly organized with a stick-to-it attitude.
-- Self motivated/starter that takes initiative.
-- Creative problem solver with the ability to quickly adapt to new application.
-- A major plus: Fluency in Final Draft, Google Suite, Adobe Suite Premiere, and/or Avid, graphic design i.e Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign.
-- Must be available 2-3 days a week.
-- Must own a working laptop and cell phone.
-- Ability to travel to and from the Beverly Hills area.
-- A true cinema and television lover with a passion & experience in storytelling, characters, keeping up-to-date with the ''who's who'' of Hollywood, and an avid reader of such periodicals (Deadline, Variety, Indiewire, etc).
This is a great way to learn the in and outs of the film/TV business, network, and make your own mark in a constantly evolving industry.
