Right now there are over 850 children in Massachusetts foster care, waiting for adoption. These children have no permanent family. We want to change that.

We are seeking to create compelling video snapshots of waiting children, in order to recruit adoptive families. These short films help us capture the unique spirit and heart of each child, so that we are more able to connect them to families for adoption.

MARE’s Communications Department is seeking a highly motivated film production intern for the fall semester. The film production intern will work to produce high quality video segments that promote MARE's work and raise awareness about adoption from foster care. This internship will provide an ideal training ground for an intern to put their video skills into action in the real world. We will be pursuing an aggressive content creation schedule, so the intern for this position will quickly gain experience in all aspects of unscripted, documentary style video production.

The Film Production Intern will have access to professional grade film equipment and will work with the Communications Department team to identify content production needs. On a daily basis an intern would be required to do any or all of the following:
- Coordinate production date and times with social workers and foster parents
- Prepare for video production through appropriate research, shot planning, and interview preparation.
- Travel to various parts of Massachusetts for production
- Capture video compelling video of children ranging from 1 - 17 years old.
- Build rapport with children and social workers
- Conduct documentary style interviews
- Edit footage in Premerie or Final Cut X
