Here are a few examples of roles that our film interns have taken on before:
The director controls the creative vision of the production, making decisions around casting, set, and costume design, among others. Interns wishing to gain experience in a directorial role will need to demonstrate creativity and leadership, including the ability to project their vision, while managing business expectations from studios.
Producers initiate and coordinate the entire project, from sourcing investment to selecting scriptwriters. Interns will provide support to all members of the production team and will be required to set up props, assist with lighting, and work closely with actors, producers, and directors whilst on set.
Set Design encompasses the planning and building of the set, which includes scenery, props, and furnishings. Interns looking for a more hands-on and artistic experience may find set design appealing, and will also need an in-depth understanding of the production’s vision and script, to provide authentic surroundings to support the story.
Ensuring clarity and consistency of a script is what editors’ primary responsibilities include. Interns will have the opportunity to assist in developing existing screenplays, and brainstorming with the greater team. Studying the script in great detail and reporting on inconsistencies, will ensure your writing and editing skills develop greatly.
