CSU Video Intern

Posted on August 17th, 2011

This video 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:

• Producing (shooting, interviewing, and editing) Ramble On videos for CSU’s YouTube channel. Ramble Ons are student produced videos that feature CSU events and life at CSU. Check out the Ramble On playlist at http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL4C6A6EF431FF07EF.

• Producing (shooting, interviewing, and editing) MyCSU videos for CSU’s YouTube channel and www.MyCSU.colostate.edu. MyCSU videos profile fascinating CSU students. Check out the MyCSU playlist at http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLFEB69D8271505E81.

• Assisting CSU television producers with field and studio assignments.

• Maintaining the Ramble On playlist on 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. Our primary editing software is Final Cut and cameras are Sony HD & SD format.

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 your career development.

Throughout the semester, students will be expected to produce at least one Ramble On or MyCSU each week. Your work will appear on CSU’s YouTube channel, Facebook and Twitter accounts. Some segments will also be aired on CSU Channel 11 on Comcast.

Each intern will have unique work availability and our managers will make every effort to accommodate the right person as necessary. Ten hours per week will be expected, depending on the demands of workload. Often, this involves evenings and weekends. The internship is paid at $10/hour.

To apply, please submit a cover letter outlining your video experience, and a resume to Kimberly Sorensen at Kimberly.Sorensen@colostate.edu by 5 p.m. Mountain Time on Friday, Sept. 2, 2011.

If you are selected for an interview, please be prepared to share examples of your video work.
