OUR Internship Program
Hello, there! Are you interested in interning at Glow in the Dark? Keep reading!
We're a small studio in a big studio world, but our interns huddle up in the trenches side by side with us to learn about original story and concept development, preproduction, and the inner workings of the entertainment industry.
We don't guarantee what any one day will hold; as a small studio, we do a little bit of everything, in-house! It's not always glamorous, but you won't be running errands or getting coffee (unless it's for you, of course). Day to day life at Glow in the Dark is always in flux. One day, we're in development meetings, the next we're researching client projects, the next we're doing inventory in the office, and then off to meet with potential studios, so on and so forth... it's busy, but there's always something new to do or learn!
Our program is unpaid, but we do our best to make sure that our Interns grow and learn in a tangibly useful, industry-specific way-- and so far, we've gotten a great response from former interns.
That being said, if you're interested in making the third desk in our cozy studio yours for a few months, read on!
Applications for our Fall 2019 Internship are OPEN until August 31!
GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL!
What we look for in an intern:
Fall 2019 internship start date: late September/early October through early December (date flexible). *NOTE: If enrolled in a for credit course, interns can start earlier if needed for their program! We’re flexible with start and end dates and will work with your course program.
Artists, writers, and creatives encouraged!
Strong preference given to currently enrolled students receiving internship course credit at an accredited university during the internship. (However, interested non-students are absolutely encouraged to apply with the understanding that this is an unpaid position and not an offer of employment.)
While we work heavily with storytelling and visual development, our internship is production-oriented; however, we encourage the artistic and creative growth of our interns, and offer one-on-one guided mentorship throughout the program on skills or topics of their choosing.
How to Apply!
To apply, send your application to firstname.lastname@example.org
(please use Fall 19 Internship Application as your email header!)
‘But what do I submit’, I hear you ask. Easy! It’s up to you. Really. Seriously. The point of your application material is showing us why and how you’re a good fit for our program- and how we can be a good fit for you as an intern!
But generally, it’s just your resume, cover letter, and any other relevant materials you would like to show us (like your portfolio*, samples, or CV, depending on your skill set!).
*You CAN use a link to a portfolio site instead of attaching it to your application, but please don’t just send us your entire website/Instagram/etc- we unfortunately don’t have the time to go through all of it, so we might not see your best work!! Choose what you really want us to see and link directly to that bit, whatever it is.
The only big “no”: do not send us your pitch as part of your application. Unsolicited ideas will be deleted without reading (so y’know, if you want us to be able to review your application…)
