Gigantic Pictures - Spring Producing Internship
Check with your Internship Coordinator BEFORE accepting to determine how you might do this internship for credit.
Gigantic Pictures Spring Internship
Gigantic Pictures, an independent film and documentary production company located in Chelsea, is looking for dedicated, fast-learners interested in both narrative and documentary films, who want to obtain first-hand and practical experience in the industry. As part of Gigantic, you will be working in a close-knit office, directly assisting producers Jason Orans, Pamela Ryan and the rest of the Gigantic staff.
Gigantic Pictures works with a small group of interns who we aim to equip with the practical knowledge and skills required for many entry-level film jobs, as well as those that can be applied to their own work. Each intern's experience is unique as we try, whenever possible, to focus intern projects on each individual's interests, current abilities, and future aspirations. Some of our more general tasks range from creative projects, covering phones and the front desk, to completing research and script coverage, and assisting in necessary runs. In addition to working alongside the heads of Gigantic Pictures, interns also provide support for our writers, directors, and outside collaborators.
Our internship runs from January through mid May, requiring a commitment of 2 or 3 days per week. This is a part-time, unpaid internship. We offer college credit, but it is not required.
In light of Covid-19, our internship will begin remotely and remain that way indefinitely. If, at some point before the end of the semester, we’re able to return to in-person work, interns will have the option to either begin working in-person or finish their internship remotely.
What We're Looking For:
We look for strong writing and analytical skills that will be employed while crafting executive summaries, letters and script coverage for our director of development. Organization and troubleshooting skills are a must! Though significant film experience is a plus, this is a great opportunity for those who have little background in film but do possess a great attitude, and are eager to learn.
