Looking for the next Wes Anderson or Tina Fey
The UW Graduate School needs a video intern – it could be you!
So, it won’t be as quite as exciting as interviewing Snooki on the red carpet or being embedded with an Army unit in Afghanistan. But working as a video intern in the UW Graduate School means you will get to interview UW researchers working on robots and stem cells and graduate students who study urban ecology and create software that will save the planet.
You will get to play with a really cool DSLR and audio equipment and use it to gather and create video content. You will learn how to edit – or expand your already awesome editing skills – and, best of all, build your portfolio, make great contacts and tell the world how important graduate degrees are.
Your video projects will include shooting and editing:
- Graduate student, faculty and alumni profiles.
- Instructional videos.
- Short features on graduate programs, research and projects.
The ideal candidate is someone interested in a future career in communications, video production, journalism or web media.
What you have:
- Video and editing skills with Audacity and Adobe Premiere or Final Cut Pro – and the desire to expand them.
- Knowledge of the Adobe Creative Suite and still photography.
- Demonstrated writing ability and experience.
- A wicked sense of humor.
- Organizational skills and an obsession with meeting deadlines
- Experience using social media from Facebook to Pinterest to YouTube and beyond.
- High level of energy and passion for all things media.
What we offer:
- A video internship for summer and/or autumn 2012
- Credit (looks great on your transcript!) or a small stipend (enough to buy a few pizzas and your next tat!)
- A great learning experience.
- The chance to build your portfolio.
- A reference for when you go out into the real world.
- The opportunity to share your vast knowledge of pop culture with older colleagues who are trying to relate to today’s students.
Submit resume and three examples of your work (links are preferred) to Elizabeth Lowry, UW Graduate School communications director, (email@example.com). We will start our review for summer quarter on May 15. Questions? Just ask!
