Valerie Steinberg Productions is seeking interns for summer 2023. VSP is an LA-based film & TV development and production company, dedicated to producing genre-smashing, risk-taking, boundary-pushing films for an international audience. The company is based in Los Angeles, but there is the option for this to be a partially or fully remote position.
The duties for this position will include script coverage, talent research, and literary scouting – with the potential to be offered paid opportunities in film production as they arise.
This is primarily a creative development position (focusing on critical analysis of literary material and films), and depending on interest, there is also the opportunity to focus on film financing, international co-production, sales/distribution, film festivals, business development, and/or intellectual property.
This film producing apprenticeship is an educational opportunity to gain industry knowledge while contributing to the efforts of driving forward a development slate.
We are seeking voracious readers with a deep love of cinema, strong opinions, excellent taste, and a sharp understanding of story and character in novels and screenplays. The ideal candidate would happily read two scripts before lunchtime, brings their own ideas to the table, and has a passion for discovering new voices.
Please note: This position is eligible for Yale’s Arts Apprenticeship program, which is part of the Summer Experience Award. Eligible students are those who have received any amount of financial aid in the semester prior to this summer, with at least one term of Yale remaining. If you are not eligible for the SEA, we would still love to see your application – but please note this opportunity if you are eligible.
