This internship is not about making copies or getting coffee. This internship is about you getting actual hands on experience in video production and editing so that you have something substantial to add to your reel and resume.

You will be trained in all aspects of studio and field production. As Production Assistants, you will be involved in anything and everything from set design to lighting to audio, just to name a few. Our most skilled interns have been placed in crew positions such as studio camera operators, floor managers, and assistant directors. Interns who work on our productions will receive screen credit.

Our interns also have a lot of post-production responsibilities. This includes data management, logging, transcribing, and converting files. You will often be asked to edit projects such as short promos, public service announcements and long-form programming using Final Cut Pro X. We especially love it when our interns can create graphics using After Effects and Photoshop.

This internship is also about helping our organization succeed. Some of our major goals are to increase and maintain membership, fill up our classes, and encourage our members to create more content. Interns are required to participate with outreach by letting the community know about PADNET and the resources available to the public. You will help us develop and implement marketing strategies, manage our social media presence, and attend local events to act as a representative for PADNET.
