Pros: great expereince learning from talented individuals
Cons: was not compensated during the summer internship
At Plattform Advertising, I was one of the two video interns. We created a 60-second spot for a higher-education client of theirs, and also created a 3-minute 'virtual-tour' video to be placed on the companies website. In addition to those videos, I helped on four professional shoots that summer, working as the gaffer and production assistant. Around the office I filmed the auditions and ingested them into the company server, and assisted the full-time employees as needed. Overall it was an excellent experience that allowed me to grow as a professional.
