Are you passionate about making a difference? Do you love the ocean and its most toothy creatures? Join the creative team at SRC to help visually communicate our research and outreach in a fun, captivating format.
Seeking upper-level college students, graduate students, or recent graduates with a passion for video production, the ocean, and conservation. Videographers of all backgrounds will be considered, but a strong ability to learn scientific concepts and communicate effectively is required. Applicants must have a high degree of self-motivation and creativity.
Each semester, the SRC Program offers a video production internship position to one top-notch student or recent graduate, working closely with the Multimedia Specialist at SRC. This intern will help create video packages for the SRC website, and other supporting institutions. These videos will mostly be educational in nature, with an occasional promo piece to spark fundraising.
While plenty of time will be spent in the editing suite, the video intern will also have the opportunity to attend at least one shark research trip, filming alongside the Program’s Multimedia Specialist. Also, some edits will require new footage, for which the video intern will be responsible. The intern will have the opportunity to interview world-renowned scientists, helping communicate their cutting-edge findings to the public in an easily digestible form.
Lastly, the video production intern will be invited to propose new projects. Once refined, these projects will receive strong support and facilitation, ensuring the intern completes the term with several strong additions to his/her portfolio.
- Complete at least 6 video packages (1:00–2:30 in length)
- Propose and complete at least 1 special video project (i.e. — shark trip highlight video for VIP group, special outreach event video, video profile on SRC scientist or student)
Details & Equipment
- Available Fall, Spring, Summer
- Available as a volunteer-position or for academic credit
- Must have access FCP editing platform
- Access to high-grade camera (DSLR or pro-sumer digital camcorder) and sound equipment strongly preferred
If you excel during your semester-long internship, you may be invited back for a second term, during which you will be given the opportunity to learn underwater video production (subject to snorkeling and diving experience/skill level).
