Jam in the Van

Video Editing Intern

September 2020 • Santa Monica, CA

What I liked

This was an incredible experience as a remote intern! My supervisor, along with the other employees that I met, were extremely helpful, kind, and encouraging while I learned how to work in a professional environment. I always had work to do that utilized my skills as an editor, and I feel way more confident about my ability to do my job well!

What I wish was different

While I was disappointed at first that the internship would be remote due to COVID-19, it was surprisingly easy to adjust to working from home, even in a different state! I hope to still be able to move to LA eventually.

Advice

Always be available! When working as a creative team, you sometimes have to rely on others, and sometimes you're the one who needs relying on! It's so fulfilling working as a team in a creative environment.

Video Production Intern

June - August 2019 • Los Angeles, CA

What I liked

The opportunity to edit their videos and learn about their content, being at shoot days where I photographed and interacted with artists and sponsors, and the laid-back work environment.

What I wish was different

I wish that I was working 5 days a week instead of 2; being immersed in the environment more frequently would have given me a better understanding of the entire small business, as opposed to primarily the video work that I was doing. I also wish that the creators/bosses interacted with the interns more.

Advice

Be outspoken about what you want to learn and be working on, and Jack will do his best to give you that opportunity!
