Internships and Grad school

I was deeply inspired when MediaStorm came to York College to discuss the company and their projects. It was almost like a light bulb turned on because that’s what my group and I aspire to be. I was delighted to find out that they also offer internships, even though it’s a one in a million shot I believe that going there would grant me the ultimate experience where i’m absorbing everything I see like a sponge. They are an organization that essentially works with profit and non profit organizations that help construct videos and documentaries about awareness and characters. Having my own production team that also do something similar was inspiring to see what a more established and developed group is. Basically MediaStorm is the grown up version of Pantheon Cinema (My Group). Jobs range from editing to even going in the field and shooting, but it’s mostly just editing and helping coordinate these projects.

Now this is just a fantasy scenario, but my IDEAL internship would be to work with Marvel. I’m a huge comic book fan and love all the work they have been doing with their stories and films and once I found out that the company is located in New York and intern all the time I was delighted beyond belief. And their internship opportunities range from everything that I have encountered at York, from web design to even media. I’m hoping and crossing my fingers that I could have the opportunity to be involved in the media department with marvel and become a part of being behind the stories that brought me up during my childhood.

AMC Networks Inc. (IFC FILMS) Operates several award winning brands of cable television. One of them being IFC films that produce culturally relevant films that have engaged audiences for years. IFC films offers interns a chance to review, analyze and be a part of the independent film world. I was made aware that a previous CT major interned at IFC and I became extremely jealous at the fact because that is the ideal place where any indie filmmaker see’s themselves being at a certain point.

I don’t have planned to attend graduate school right away after I complete my work at York. My goal is to work for about a year to a year and a half and then attend graduate school once I have a better vision of what I need to work on and learn. I know this is a very unrealistic plan, but NYU has a film program that many artist in the industry have attended and I just think to myself “Why can’t I?” It’s a long shot but I believe the networking and push would be what I need to get my foot in the door and start working seriously as a professional

INTERNSHIP

An Internship is an opportunity that helps provide real world experience to students looking to explore or gain the relevant knowledge and skills required to enter into a particular career field.

I have always love shooting videos and editing them is a passion acquired through painstaking methods that span over eight years. I know that i still need more hands-on experience to strengthen those knowledge acquired so far, in college. Hence the Internship opportunity.

Couple of places I did like to work are:

1. STEINER STUDIOS

Misadventures (animation)

This is an animation attempt by myself, Dwayne and Anthony. The program used for the animation is Toon Boom Studio and it was our first time with it. It took some getting use to and we decided that we weren’t too happy with the result so it will be re done with better animation and more sounds. However, it was a fun first attempt and we are keen on trying it more on future projects.

Anthony, Dwayne, & Andres

Anthony, along with his other group members, Dwayne and Andres, is planning on exploring the role of graffiti and it’s transition from the United States to Ecuador.

2 Potential Characters
-Lady Pink
-Allen Ket

Shown murals of graphite around Williamsburg to get an idea of some of the history that follows the art of graffiti.

Presentation at a museum in Ecuador.
Influenced from StyleWars documentary.

Target Audience: People from 20-45 Forties because that’s the age of the people where it kinda boomed in America.

final project ( group project) anthony, dwayne, andres

anthony/dwayne/ andres final project is a documentary on graffitti. there will be following a many graffiti artist. they are interested in uncovering graffiti’s influence around the world from its inception in america and around the world. they will have interviews and it will lead to an event in ecuador. they will focus on graffitit’s influence on the world today and how it has changed from the 80’s. their target audience is our generation. they will also have another person of interest , her name is lady pink. she is another popular graffiti artist that will be tagging along with them. very interestingly they want to flip the idea that graffitit is not just associated with gangs, and vandalism, but it is a form of art, history. they would also compare ecuadorean style of graffiti and american style. they need to focus on trying to organize their ideas to form a coherent message. they need to make sure they get backstory, storyboards, establishing shots. Anthony’s role is director, andres is producer, dwayne’s role is cinematagraper. they all will be supporting each other in the editing. I wish them good luck it sounds very ambitious, I just hope they can get every thing done they want to acheive.
