Video Intern

Tasks

You’ll be part of a team of interns working to produce content for both the editorial and promotional sides of My Athens. The subjects and styles needed will vary, giving you an opportunity to play. Assignments may include short brand-identity videos, video portraits of neighborhoods, promotional pieces for My Athens merch and events and video storytelling for our blog, like this one from John Roche.

Video interns will also work together to launch My Athens on SnapChat this spring.

Video interns will work closely with the commercial photography team on collaborative projects. Must be available to attend weekly meetings to discuss strategy, upcoming projects and progress.

Members of the video team will be tasked with producing 1-2 pieces a month, ranging in length from 15 seconds to about one minute.

Must have own equipment, respect deadlines and be a reliable and clear communicator.

Time

We’re charting new territory here, but we think this will take 8-10 hours a week.

How do I apply?


Send an email with a cover letter telling us about you and 3 work samples to rachel@myathensis.com. Please include a link to your Instagram account, your M-F availability for spring semester and let us know what kind of equipment you have at your disposal.

Commercial Photography Intern

Tasks

You’ll be part of a team of interns tasked with keeping our promotional materials fresh. Together with the visual media team, you’ll conceive of styled, magazine-style photo shoots featuring our merch — like tees and photo books — to feed into sales channels like Instagram, the My Athens web store, ads on partner websites and more. Assignments will be a mix of seasonal and event-driven shoots (a graduation shoot, a Mothers Day shoot) and “Go crazy!” creative shoots. You’ll get to play with a number of styles, locations, moods, models and more to showcase our brand at work in the city.

With oversight and support from the executive director, you’ll schedule models, scout locations and generate concepts. The commercial photography team is responsible for producing two shoots and a 15-second stop motion video a month. You may also be asked to support the video team when extra hands are needed.

Must have own equipment, respect deadlines and be a reliable and clear communicator. Some experience lighting shoots preferred.

Time

8-10 hours/week.

Tasks

Graphic design interns work closely with the director, events and marketing teams to create branding and promotional collateral for events (posters, logos, signage, etc), as well as working on larger-scale projects, such as the creation of a prospectus outlining the different facets of the company and our mission.

Must respect deadlines, ask for help when you need it and be a responsive and clear communicator. Must have access to Adobe Photoshop, InDesign and, preferably, Illustrator ad be able to furnish finished work in both JPEG and Adobe file formats.

Time

Varies, depending on how many events, promotional sales, etc. are coming up. We aim to ask for no more than 10 hous in a week.
