ORGANIZATION: Cine Qua Non Inc./Incite Pictures

  • 4 people are interested

Internship - Student (or other) for a Spanish speaking documentary film (video) Editing Volunteer Intern to work on a feature documentary set in Lawrence, MA about climate justice.

Spanish is essential. Basic knowledge of Premiere Pro.

We are looking for someone who is interested in the subject matter, and wants real world experience. The primary job is screening footage, creating written logs, transcribe important material, then going from transcription to translation (words vs meaning!), captioning material.

You will work with our editor, who is also the producer-director, in Tribeca, New York City, as well as remotely.

The internship is learning to be an edit assistant. In this case, expediting the process of screening footage, taking detailed notes, deciding on transcriptions, that become translations. Insert subtitles, then sit with the editor, observing and helping as she cuts. Depending on time, if interested, work can be varied with other tasks. Some of the work can be done remotely.

We are all vaccinated and working in a ventilated apartment.

We require a flexible commitment of 21 hours a week for three months. The schedule is flexible, and some weeks there may be less to do.

Again, you must speak Spanish well, and it is very helpful to have access to premiere pro.

The work is not paid, but we will work with you to insure that the experience is meaningful. You will get a screen credit, a title for resume building, and, we hope, a useful skill set.

We offer College Credit.

After the internship we are always willing to write letters of recommendation, and you may add us to your resume for that purpose.

Please apply with a note, a resume, and if you have it, a work sample. School projects are fine.

NOTE!! We read every response very carefully, but we apologize that we are unable to respond to personally respond to applicants. If you do not get the internship / hear back from us, the internship has been filled.

In the future we will have other internships available, so please check back in
