Drew deferred his acceptance to Trinity, attended a 2 month film school in Maine and turned to us for an internship relating to film. We placed him at a production company where he learned all facets of film making in the studio and on sets.
Drew became a production assistant on location for shows being produced for Animal Planet and the Discovery and History Channels. Drew said the best part was working long days with the crew. The head producer was so impressed with Drew’s efforts that he actually offered him a job.
Kiran was a sophomore in college when he contacted us about his interest in broadcasting/TV/film. We introduced him to a film studio in Boston that provides studio space for TV commercials and the film industry. His first experience at work included the Massachusetts Production Coalition Meeting where there were large groups of students, producers, voice over artists, and others in the film industry. During the meeting the producers of the new movie Ted 2 (with Seth MacFarlane and Mark Wahlberg) gave a talk about the making of the film.
Kiran worked on 2 soundstages that included wardrobe & makeup rooms, on-stage production space as well as a fully stocked in-house rental house for lighting, grip, and every type of production equipment. He helped to fill orders of equipment that other companies needed or were returning. He also conducted research to help expand the studio’s influence in the Massachusetts area, brainstorming with the director about ways to reach out through various social media channels and researched film festivals to find other avenues for promotion.
At the end of the summer, we presented Kiran with a list of production, broadcasting and sound studios that we had researched for him. Not only did Kiran gain practical experience in the field, he will have interesting contacts for the future.
