Media Organization: Sarah Colt Productions
Sarah Colt Productions is a documentary filmmaking company with over a decade of experience making award-winning features for PBS.
We are interviewing candidates for an internship that begins as soon as possible and spans through November. Interns work two days a week. The intern will assist in the production of a feature-length documentary film which examines the current state of the American middle class.
The intern's responsibilities will include a mix of office administrative work, writing research memos, participating in production planning, logging footage, and other tasks. If the intern would like college credit, they would have to take initiative throughout the process by bringing in forms and ensuring that the college's requirements correlate with what we offer. Although the internships are unpaid, we have a strong track record of hiring or recommending our interns for hire into production teams. Journalism students are especially encouraged to apply.
Our interns have the opportunity to learn about the long-form documentary film production process (as well as some of the aspects of running a small business) in an environment where questions are valued, important, and welcome. They will get to see the creative process in action along with the nuts and bolts of what goes into making a social-issue documentary.
Interested candidates should submit their resumes and cover letters to firstname.lastname@example.org.
