High school and college students interested in digital media-making, community journalism, and creative community-building are encouraged to join us this summer. This will be an opportunity for you to collaborate with the Midpen Media team on the development of media projects – including studio television programs, online video content, podcasts, music, and graphic design projects. If you love being creative, capturing stories onscreen, or messing around with media production in any form and you want to help build the future of media-making workshops and opportunities in your community, this internship is for you!
You will be asked to commit to a minimum of 4 hours each week at our studio located in Palo Alto. This time will be spent supporting Midpen Media’s programs and collaborating with the Midpen Media community on a variety of personal and community-oriented projects. Interns seeking more hours will have the opportunity to build their own schedule with the Midpen Media Production team.
Midpen Media offers a wide selection of enriching media-making tools and opportunities. This includes access to media editing programs such as Final Cut Pro and Adobe Creative Cloud, high quality media-making rental equipment such as Sony Mirrorless Cameras and Focusrite USB audio interfaces, a television studio, a podcasting studio, and comfortable stations to focus on media projects in our Media Lab.
