Birds Nest Foundation has interns round the year to contribute to all areas of the foundation, maintaining our social media presence, managing pre-production logistics, assisting with film shoots, and keeping everyone up to date on the various projects we’re currently executing. They do everything from writing call sheets to serving as on-location production assistants to editing footage with Final Cut Pro.
Our intern program not only allows students, many of whom plan to pursue a career in film production, to gain experience in the industry, but also provides them an opportunity to work as a team, building knowledge and skills that will serve them both professionally and personally.
