Video interns assist on all aspects of video production at GRSF which extend far beyond the archival and documentary recording done at all theaters. Working under the guidance of experienced professionals from our company like Christopher Gerson (Darwin: The Series) and Benjamin Boucvalt GRSF’s video team has created a YouTube channel with over 300,000 views. Promotional videos include trailers as well as creative projects such as the Real Housewives of Shakespeare and Dumb Ways to Die in Shakespeare. On Facebook, The Great Shakespearean Bakeoff got more than 85,000 views in the final 3 weeks of the 2017 season. Video interns also help with photography, graphic design and social media.
Familiarity with Adobe Premier is a big plus, and experience with Final Cut Pro is also helpful.
As a video intern, I split my time between editing at the desk and on the ground shooting and producing marketing videos for the Festival. I worked alongside a mentor who still gives me advice today, a dear friend. The Festival truly respects each other and our individual crafts. The company’s way of collaboration has remained with me and is applied on every creative project I produce.
