Each semester we bring on 2-3 students from around the globe to engage in a hands-on experience with documentary production. You’ll be working directly in the office with the director, coordinating with the remote team, and learning and assisting on a variety of production related tasks.
Applicants should be self-starters with an interest in reshaping the future of cinematic journalism. This is an experiential internship, so you’ll be doing a lot more than getting coffee. The director and his team tailor internships based on the individual, as such the job evolves over the course of a semester based on your strengths and interests.
Hours and start dates can be flexible, though you must be willing to work in Seattle. The office has a dog/cat, so if you have allergies, please be aware before submitting.
It’s ok if you do not have a background in film production but are interested in applying your field of study to the documentary format. Such fields may include: Journalism, English, Psychology, Political Science, Cyber Forensics, etc.

- Field production assistance as needed
- Gear prep for shoots
