Initial responsibilities include assisting the production department by going out on runs and using resourcefulness to locate various props, costumes and video footage for the show. They also support our studio production, accounting, field production, tape library, audience departments, as well as our control room and studio. They act as a liaison between the network and our show. Once the intern has gained the confidence of the staff, they are quickly assigned other tasks, including assisting on field shoots, sitting in on edit sessions and logging field tapes.
This is a great opportunity for anyone who is looking for a general overview of how a live to tape news parody television show is produced on a daily basis.
