Job Description

Are you a creative college student looking to jumpstart your career in film/video production? Do you have a passion for storytelling and creating videos to achieve a client's goals? If so, we have an opportunity for you!

Our Film Team is seeking a motivated intern to join us  for a Spring Semester internship program starting Late May / Early June 2024 and going through Early / Mid August (specific start and end dates are negotiable) for 10-15 hours per week (paid $16/hr) with some flexibility in setting a schedule to work from Tellwell’s office in Fargo, ND. We aim for core hours on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday with some anticipated flexing of time for supporting film shoots.

As an intern, you'll work alongside our experienced film production team to gain hands-on experience in all aspects of video production, from pre-production planning to post-production editing.

As a Film Production Intern, you'll have the opportunity to:

  • Edit and post-produce film content, including color correction, audio mixing, graphics, and special effects

The ideal candidate for this position will have a strong interest in video/film production and be eager to learn and grow in a fast-paced and dynamic environment. We are looking for someone who can get an assignment and run with it, working independently to move projects ahead as well as collaboratively with our team.
