Video Production Internship–CSU-TV Channel 11

Posted on August 12th, 2009

CSU Video Production Internship
Job Description

Come join the CSU video production team in providing high quality video productions to the CSU community, the City of Fort Collins, and beyond.

The CSU video internship offers hands-on experience in many different areas, including filming, editing, studio production, and broadcast television duties for CSU-TV Channel 11.

CSU-TV Channel 11 serves viewers in the University community and City of Fort Collins. Programming content includes:
• Student-produced news, sports and entertainment,
• Educational and Public access content from across the state and nation
• University Events
• Community Events

The internship would serve to support these production efforts. Essential areas of responsibility would include, but not be limited to:
• Assisting CSU field producers with field and studio assignments
• Arranging and completing independent assignments for video news releases and other media-driven video needs
• Assisting the programming coordinator with intake of public access content
• Repurposing CSU-TV content for social media outlets and other access providers
• Producing/Directing independent studio productions to be aired on Channel 11.

This is not an entry-level internship. Candidates to be considered will 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. Beyond the typical news setting, however, this internship will expose the student to a broad array of promotional, educational and documentary-style video production. Topics will range from hard science in a lab to arts performances – and everything in between.

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. The final product gained from the internship will be a polished demo reel for the next step of the intern’s career. Confidence and skills gained here will help with those next steps.

Each intern will have unique work availability and CSU Video will make every effort to accommodate the right person as possible. An average of 10 hours per week will be expected for fall semester, depending on the demands of workload. Often, this involves evenings and weekends. Two credit hours through the Journalism school will be awarded per semester (ask JoAnn Cornell for details).
