If you'd like the opportunity to gain distribution knowledge (from funding-coproduction, presales, international distribution, you should apply for this internship.)
WE DON’T PAY but most interns that work here for at least a few months and take advantage of what we have to offer end up with jobs here or elsewhere. If you are turned off because we don't pay, read THE UPSHOT, below.
WHO ARE WE? We are an Emmy Award winning film Production/Distribution company that has been in business for 15 years, made many movies in the last couple years, bringing our total library to 68+ films.
Our office is open and friendly. Sometimes things are slow; sometimes they are insane; this is the nature of the business.
EXPECTATIONS: You would be expected to dress well, show up on time, work hard, be able to deal with a stressful environment, and dedicate AT LEAST 3 days a week for at least 7 weeks, (at least from March 8th to April 30th).
It is preferable that you understand how an office works, but not required. Other pluses: Proficiency with Macs, be excellent with the phone, be fluent in any european and/or Asian languages and English, ability to organize, prioritize and read legal documents and be good researching on the web are all pluses.
THE UPSHOT: The entertainment industry will start its New Year hiring process in the next couple of months. If you'd like to exploit this, you'll want experience on your resume and a solid production company backing you up. I expect to hear from you if you fall in this category.
