Killer Films – Summer 2017
The indie powerhouse, Killer Films of New York City, is currently accepting applicants for our Summer 2017 internship. We are looking for self-motivated, good-hearted interns, hard-working problem solvers, and team players with great attitudes. Willingness, smarts, and attention to detail are critical. If you want to prove your stripes, this is your chance.
With access to the gritty underbelly of independent producing, you’ll be part of a small, yet extremely busy operation. We have projects in every stage of production that require our (and your) care. Opportunities/responsibilities include reading scripts, writing coverage, tracking research, doing errands and general administrative tasks… something new comes up every day. Above all, we offer first-hand exposure to the daily mechanics of running a production company at the forefront of American independent film and television.
Interns must make a 2 to 5 day / week commitment. Please note the Killer internship is unpaid, but we offer support for students to receive academic credit. Submit your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading: SUMMER 2017 INTERN and your name. We will be evaluating candidates in the coming months.
