Overall, an internship is a must. I am glad to have worked at Full Circle Studios. They showed me how to work with a smaller production company. I enjoy the closeness among the people and the “family” image prevalent there. I have a greater understanding of how Full Circle Studios go about work the work process. As a result of this internship, I have a greater interest in working in a production company. While I do not know the salary involved, the experience is very important in building my skill set and reputation.
I was handed a big role: working with a theater company to make a short film. It was difficult and did not quite come out how I imagined, but the experience was priceless. It helped me put my skills to the test, and showed me I still have a lot of work to do and learn.
I am honored to be given this experience and I highly recommend internships for media majors. It will help test the waters, and see how ready you are to take on big fish.
