American High Productions – Creative Intern, Yale in Hollywood

Deadline: April 28, 2024
Desired Start Date: June 10, 2024
Location: Liverpool, NY, Remote
Apply through Yale Career Link

The Creative internship is more hands-on and personal than our general Development internship. You’d work directly with Jeremy Garelick (CEO, Writer-Director-Producer) and Matt Sacca (Head of Development) on priority projects, including but not limited to:

– Script reading/coverage

– Script breakdowns

– Poster design

– Creating promotional content (TikToks, edited commercials, etc.) for our internship programs

– Pitch deck construction

– Virtual location scouts for upcoming films

– Actor and Director shortlists for upcoming films

– Creating American-High-movie memes for our social media

Within this internship, there is also an opportunity to primarily focus on the advent of artificial intelligence (AI) in film and conduct research in that field to help American High streamline its business processes, while still completing supplementary projects like the ones listed above. If that sounds compelling to you, please let us know!

You would meet with us via Zoom once a week to go over the previous week’s projects, and to receive a debrief on the upcoming week’s project as well.

The Creative internship is highly competitive, so when applying for this position, we request a resume and any supplemental material you feel might help your application (short/feature scripts, short/feature films, etc.). The number of work hours required is determined by your school’s respective internship credit rules.

Yale College recognizes that experiential learning is a valued and integral part of the Yale College academic experience, enabling students to transition from the classroom into their post-graduate professional careers. This experience is acquired through a variety of means, including but not limited to internships, volunteer opportunities, independent projects, and research opportunities. Some employers require students to demonstrate that the work or internship experience is related to their academic major, and some students want to demonstrate to future employers that they have done field work. PRAC 471/472 are graded pass/fail courses that allow a student to receive credit for the application of summer experience toward this structured curricular engagement.
