If you see the world in visuals and aren't afraid of interviewing, recording, cropping, color adjusting, and rendering, we have good news. The Dallas Observer is looking for multimedia interns for this summer.
Above, you can see some of the work our last multimedia intern, Sarah Passon, produced. If learning the skills involved in that work -- conceptualizing, shooting and editing, among others -- interests you, keep reading.
Multimedia interns will work with the editor, reporters, web editor and art director to produce videos to accompany print features and online reporting. (S)he will be expected to produce two brief segments each week, as well as two long-term projects over the course of the semester.
Excellent communication and organizational skills, well-developed creative and production skills, and a comfort level in working independently and juggling several projects on tight deadlines is a must.
