At this moment, we’ve got an opportunity for a new undergraduate intern to start with us in January 2020.

If you haven’t heard of it, you can find out more about it on there website; https://www.erasmusplus.org.uk/
This unpaid internship should last for at least five months. In these five months, we’ll take you on as a full team member and together we’ll go through our pre-production, production and post-production stages. Based on your learning goals, we’ll work out a personalised track to get you the experience you need to become a professional. It will give you a chance to work with cinema standard equipment such as RED Digital Cinema and Phantom Slow Motion cameras.
So, what do you need to do to apply for this position? Please follow the steps below:
- Create a video between 1 and 2 minutes in which you answer the following questions: Who are you and what can you do? what can you contribute to the team?, where do your strengths and weaknesses in video production lie and what do you want to learn in these five months. The structure of the video is completely up to you and you can be as creative as you like.
- Send an unlisted link of the video to email@example.com by 31-NOV-2019 5:30pm GMT. Please do not send us your CV or an extended cover letter. Only state your details and link to the video in your covering email. We will solely judge on the content and quality of your video. By 05-DEC-2019, you’ll hear if you are successful to enter the second stage of this application process.
- If successful, we’ll have a skype conversation about your video. You will not be penalised for the equipment you used, however an explanation on your approach to planning, filming and editing the video will be discussed in this video interview. The final decision will be made after the skype interviews.
Once successful, it’s over to you to organise your scholarship through your school or college and to apply for funding.
Please note that, should you be successful in your application, you will be due to start at Film Division no later than the end of January 2020 and be living and primarily working in Birmingham, UK. If it is preferable you can start earlier in Janauary.
