Fall Intern - Producing
Gigantic PicturesNew York, NY
Part Time Unpaid Internship
Position Type: Part Time, Unpaid Internship
Location: New York, NY
Job Description: Gigantic Pictures, an independent film and documentary production company located in Chelsea, is looking for dedicated, fast-learners interested in both narrative and documentary films who want to obtain first-hand and practical experience in the industry. As part of Gigantic, you will be working in a close-knit office, directly assisting producer Jason Orans and the rest of the Gigantic staff.
Gigantic Pictures works with a small group of interns who we aim to equip with the practical knowledge and skills required for many entry-level film jobs as well as those that can be applied to their own work. Each intern's experience is unique as we try, whenever possible, to focus your projects on each individual's interests, current abilities, and future aspirations. However, some of our more general tasks range from creative projects to covering phones and the front desk, completing research and script coverage, and assisting in necessary runs. In addition to working alongside the heads of Gigantic Pictures, interns also support our writers, directors, and outside collaborators.
Our internship runs from the end of August through the end of Decemeber, requiring the commitment of 2 or 3 days/week. This is a part-time, unpaid internship. We offer college credit, but it is not required.
What We're Looking For: We look for strong writing and analytical skills that will be employed while crafting executive summaries, letters and script coverage for our head of development. Organization and troubleshooting skills are a must! Though film experience is a plus, this is a great opportunity for those who have little to no background in film but do possess a great attitude, are eager to learn.
