Captured Time Productions runs an unpaid internship program that provides skills and experience to aspiring filmmakers.
Interns participate in many aspects of filmmaking. Their responsibilities include research, tape logging, digitizing video, basic editing, Avid software maintenance, running errands, and a wide range of skills required in a production office. Interns many also have opportunities to shoot video and assist editors. This program emphasizes skills that are needed in the industry.
Even more than particular skills, the program provides a basic orientation to working in production – what we refer to as “production thought” and “set etiquette.”
Captured Time assists its former interns to find Production Assistant and other entry level jobs in the industry. A high proportion of former Captured Time interns now work professionally in TV, news, movies, industrials, commercials, and other media.
No previous film or video experience is necessary (but it doesn’t hurt). Interns must be self-motivated, hard working and self-disciplined. It helps if they have a sense of fun, love the movies, and really want to do this kind of work.
Interns must commit to a minimum of 3 days a week for three months.
Interns must have reliable transportation.
