Film Development Intern

May 2019 - August 2019 Santa Monica, CA
“Supervisors were very personable, helpful, and focused on the professional growth of interns. I learned practical and essential office production skills that could be applied to both large-scale and smaller, independent projects. I was provided with constructive feedback that not only highlighted areas in which I could improve, but also areas in which I excelled. I was treated as any other employee of the company, and was additionally encouraged to be present for meetings/phone calls to get a feel for the etiquette practiced by film producers and executives. The smaller size of the company allowed me to see firsthand how everyone collaborated and juggled various projects on a day-to-day level. ”
