We’re based in West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and are seeking qualified students who are interested in the film, television, stage and publishing industries. Bright, motivated, and organized self-starters with a passionate interest in any of these fields are encouraged to apply. Duties include reading of scripts and books of all sorts and writing coverage. This is a good entry-level opportunity to learn the inner workings of the writing and producing sides of the film, television, stage, and book worlds.
A couple of past interns who have gone on to great success are Steve Kloves – writer of all but one of the “Harry Potter” movies – and Michael Aguilar, who produced “The Departed” and now has his own production offices at Fox Studios.
The internship is a for-credit only, part-time, virtual internship. Proof of official college credit is required.
**Notice: Due to COVID-19, we are only open to remote opportunities for accredited students. Please check with your school supervisor if that would be acceptable. Thanks.
