duckrabbit film production internship (paid)Written by Benjamin Chesterton
Looking for work to kickstart a career in production? Then this might be for you.
We’re currently offering a 6 month internship in our Birmingham production office.
This is a great chance for the right person to learn in a small company who specialise in mini documentaries.
To fit in you need to be passionate about the kind of stories we tell. You’ll want to be part of a team that makes films like Someone To Kill or lighter stuff like Double Joy or our Born To Engineer films (made by someone who joined us as an intern a couple of years ago):
To apply write to us at email@example.com explaining:
1: Why you want to work with us and why we would want to work with you (see qualities required below)
2: Past experience in the creative arts/journalism
3: Software you can use
4: Links to your work
No CV’s and no attachments please. Please do not be offended if beyond acknowledgement you don’t hear back.
To get on at duckrabbit it helps if you are
1: A team-worker
2: An emotionally intelligent and caring person
3: Have good levels of concentration and are comfortable working autonomously
4: Like dogs
5: Are not frightened of computers (or dogs)
6: Take responsibility for mistakes
7: Interested in films (and music)
8: Are a positive glass half full kind of person (though we won’t hold it against you if you like The Smiths)
What you’ll be up to:
Coming up with ideas
Responding to inquiries.
Booking people onto your training courses.
Dealing with kit/office supplies/expenses.
Keeping the office tidy.
Posting on duckrabbit blog/twitter/facebook accounts.
Plus anything else production appropriate that needs doing.
3-5 days a week (some flexibility)
Yes. But not a lot.
After 6 months?
As soon as we find someone we like. So get on it.
