Research and Development, Web and Social Media Interns
Providence Pictures Company Overview
You may not know it, but if you watch TV, you’ve likely seen a film by Providence Pictures. We are an award-winning film and video production company specializing in documentaries on science, history, art, and culture. Our programs air worldwide and consistently earn critical acclaim and high ratings. Through stunning photography, powerful narrative, inventive animation, and cinematic re-enactment, Providence Pictures documentaries translate complicated ideas into simple, compelling stories.
Providence Pictures is seeking interns to assist in the research and development stages of new projects and those currently in production, developing and implementing new internet/social media strategies, and general production assistance. Candidates should be creative, energetic, and interested in contributing to the development of documentary based work. The more you put in, the more you get out. Innovation and fresh ideas are our most valuable resource. Whatever your idea, be it a graphic style, line of research, organizational technique, anything at all … we encourage you to bounce it around. Mac proficiency is required. Some background and interest in archaeology, history, religion, environment science, or evolutionary biology would be helpful. Internships run for a minimum of one semester with a minimum commitment of 8 hours of work per week that can be done in two, four hour time blocks, or one eight hour day. This is a non-paying position.
We are currently working on 3 one-hour films for the PBS series NOVA: Secrets of the Colosseum, The Unshakeable Hagia Sophia, and The Lost City of Petra. We are also looking for interns interested in developing possible projects on the Statue of Liberty, Egyptian Antiquities, and Pre-Columbian America.
