Posted on August 9th, 2010

Video Internship Job Description
This internship serves to support Colorado State University video productions at all levels of external relations. Major outlets for your finished productions will include social media, traditional broadcast news and CSU web pages. Intern work will be featured in all of these settings as well as available for demo reels.
Essential areas of responsibility would include – but not be limited to:
• Assisting CSU television producers with field and studio assignments
• Arranging and completing independent assignments for video news releases and other media-driven video needs
• Repurposing CSU Video Production content for social media and other outlets
• Maintaining CSU’s YouTube channel
This is not an entry-level internship. Candidates to be considered should be in their final years of their academic program at Colorado State University. Interns in this program will be expected to independently and effectively be able to investigate a story, gather interviews & b-roll, then write and edit all content. This internship will also expose the student to a broad array of promotional, educational and documentary-style video production.
In return for this dedicated work, the intern will receive intensive training in a professional environment. Interns will have the opportunity to develop their skills in creative lighting, camerawork, motion graphics, webcasting and DVD authoring. Confidence and skills gained here will help with your next work environment.
By the end of the semester, it is expected that interns will be involved in:
• Producing at least 5 three-minute videos on CSU topics and events
• Producing at least 4 web videos for the PR staff’s new “burning questions” collection for YouTube
• Maintaining a well-populated YouTube channel for CSU
Each intern will have unique work availability and our managers will make every effort to accommodate the right person as necessary. About 10-12 hours per week will be expected, depending on the demands of workload. Often, this involves evenings and weekends. The internship is paid at $8/hour.
