Hope everyone is enjoying the summer season!
Please share this post with your network, we are looking to fill in TWO available spots for our internship, located in the Sunset Park area of Brooklyn.
Much appreciated and best,
Seeking a few Interns to work in post-production on RESISTANCE AT TULE LAKE (http://www.resistanceattulelake.com), a documentary on the long-suppressed story of Japanese Americans who refused to cooperate with U.S. government’s World War II mass incarceration program, and were segregated in a special, militarized camp for "disloyals."
"Resistance at Tule Lake" is a project of Third World Newsreel (aka Camera News, Inc.), an alternative media arts organization that fosters the creation, appreciation and dissemination of independent film and video by and about people of color and social justice issues. It is produced and directed by independent filmmaker Konrad Aderer (lifeorliberty.org). The project is funded by a National Park Service grant through the Japanese American Confinement Sites grant program, as well as the Center for Asian American Media and the Puffin Foundation.
The Interns will experience all there is to know in making a documentary, and will be supporting us through the post-production phase of the film as we are reaching the finish line - transcription updates, assisting with archival & historical WWII research, rights & clearances, supporting outreach for the documentary via multiple social media platforms, and taking on other tasks as needed.
Though the internship is unpaid, each Intern will gain insight into the process of developing and producing a historical documentary for public television & festivals, with a particular focus on post-production and outreach for the film. He/she will work directly with the director, producers, editor, and other members of the production team as needed, gaining valuable hands-on experience and skills essential to the process. The Intern will have the opportunity to seek mentorship and guidance from the production team regarding his or her personal/professional goals, and to receive college credit and/or a letter of recommendation assuming satisfactory completion of the internship.
The project will be in post-production and outreach from now through Summer 2016. We are looking for Interns who can commit 2-3 days a week, 6-8 hours a day, between the hours of 11am-7pm, on a weekly schedule to be arranged, with some flexibility.
We do not require extensive experience from our Interns, but please let us know in your cover letter and resume of any qualifications or interest you have in these areas:
* transcription ability: good typing and comprehension
* documentary post-production
* good written communication and proofreading skills
* historical research
* social media for films, organizations or companies
* familiarity with Adobe Creative Suite, particularly Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Bridge and Photoshop
