Activists and Film Students - Fall Internships Available


WANTED: Activists and Film Students

Fall Internships Available

The True Stories Project, a Seattle-based independent film company, is seeking interns to assist with the Hearts + Minds Campaign, a unique grassroots distribution model for the feature documentary Inlaws & Outlaws. We’re using the power of the true stories in the film to empower local and national community organizations to promote marriage equality and LGBT rights. To date, we have presented nearly 400 community screenings of Inlaws & Outlaws all across the nation.

Are you creative, organized, and committed to social change? Whether you are an activist or want a future in film or digital media, this is a unique opportunity to acquire valuable experience while helping to move the ball forward. This is a high-profile project with enormous potential for impact. We’re also committed to having fun.

We have the following internships available for Fall, 2010:

· Website/Social Media Coordinator • Help maintain our website; use Facebook and other social media to connect with allied organizations and fans. Knowledge of HTML is desirable but not required. If you are tech savvy and thrive on the internet, we want to talk to you. (Willingness to learn is a big plus!)

· Digital Media Editor • We are producing a number of online video shorts with media from campaign events and the film. We need someone proficient in Final Cut Pro to take the lead in creating these pieces. Candidates for this position will be asked to submit a demo reel of their work.

Ideal candidates will be organized, reliable, and self-motivated, with experience and enthusiasm for at least 1 of the following: film production, community activism, marketing, business or events management, and web development and management. If you’re quick on your feet, a creative thinker, play well with others, and have the desire to create change, let’s talk.

This is not a paid position. You will have the opportunity to be part of an incredible experience using film to make a difference. College credit negotiable where applicable.

· Opportunities begin immediately, with assignments averaging 3 months.

· Interns will work both with the film’s producer and on independent projects.

· Hours are flexible but will average 10 hours/week.

To apply, send a letter of interest with resume to: nadja@inlawsandoutlawsfilm.com
