Thoughtful Robot Productions is seeking intern(s) to assist mostly with post-production needs. Responsibilities will vary depending on individual’s skills but will include capturing and editing using Final Cut, media management, basic web updates, and research. There may be opportunities to assist on local shoots in NYC as well.
Skills: Proficiency in Final Cut is a must. Experience with Compressor, Photoshop, DVD Studio, and Wordpress all a plus.
The ideal candidate will be: bright, enthusiastic, self-motivated, detail-oriented, interested in the editorial process and documentary filmmaking – able to give 10-20 hours per week to the project (schedule flexible, open to discussion).
The position is unpaid, but we’ll cover transportation and working meals. School credit, general mentorship/advice, and credit on the final films will certainly be provided to excellent interns. Our office/studio is located in East Williamsburg off the Grand St. L stop.
Please send your cover letter and resume, indicating your availability as well as your aspirations in the world of filmmaking to email@example.com.
