Current Casting Calls
Sorry, we’re not casting right now, but we will be soon. Check back for updates.

Due to the unfortunate changes the Covid-19 outbreak has caused, we will not be able to offer our summer internship program this year. We may offer a virtual Development internship and applications are due by April 15.

The Trailblazer Studios Summer Internship Program is designed to give rising college seniors and recent graduates practical, hands-on experience in the areas of Development, Production, Post, and Sound. This is normally an 8-week paid in-person internship but due to Covid restrictions, we’ll only be able to accept applications for a virtual internship in our Development department.

 

Interns typically apply for and spend most of their time in a primary focus area (Development, Production, Post, or Sound) but have opportunities to experience other areas occasionally throughout the 8-week period.

Hours are normally 9:00 AM – 6 PM with a 1-hour lunch break. As production hours can vary, candidates should be prepared to work longer hours if and when needed. Applicants across all departments should have the following characteristics: a passion for working in a collaborative environment, team player, able to take initiative, an eagerness to learn, a positive attitude and reliable transportation.
