Guthrie Theater - Multimedia Communications Intern

The Multimedia Communications Intern will work as part of the Communications Department, developing and producing engaging multimedia content for a variety of on- and off-line platforms in order to support the press and marketing strategies for various productions and events, as well as the theater's overall communications plan. The intern will learn about using video, still photography and audio recording to promote the work of a professional theater, developing editing and evaluation skills and using a critical eye to choose multimedia content that is compelling to viewers and listeners.

All interns can expect to interact with staff in various departments throughout the theater, providing a better understanding of the department's role within the organization. Duties will include: brainstorming content ideas; developing storyboards and scripts; coordinating production schedules for video and audio shoots; recording and editing content; assisting with distribution of production video footage (b-roll).

Candidates should be college students or recent graduates (within the past three years) and have experience in video production/editing (Adobe Premiere Elements preferred), podcasting (iTunes, FeedForAll) and graphic design (Adobe Photoshop), and be able to work independently and meet deadlines.

The Multimedia Communications Internship will run from approximately June 1 - Aug 31, 2011. Commitment is 20 hours per week. Typical workweek is Monday - Friday between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., exact schedule and dates to be determined.

Applications will be accepted Feb 28 - April 29 and will be reviewed as they are received. It is recommended to apply sooner in the process than later because if a matching candidate is found prior to the deadline the internship may be offered to that individual.
