Frontline: Post-Production

Since 1983, FRONTLINE has served as PBS's flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its debut as 'the last best hope for broadcast documentaries,' FRONTLINE's stature over 30 seasons is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience. FRONTLINE Outpost is the online post-production facility where every program is prepared for broadcast.

Internship Description:
FRONTLINE is seeking interested students who are eager to learn about and assist with the process of getting a weekly PBS television series on the air.  All majors are welcome; Television, Film, Broadcasting or Journalism students are especially encouraged.  This internship is an opportunity to work with broadcast professionals to learn the intricacies of the post-production process.  Interns will learn how to work within a post-production team, come away with a solid understanding of the post process and current standards and formats, and learn how to operate independently in a top-of-the-line facility. The internship will also provide the opportunity to observe AVID online documentary editing sessions and FRONTLINE screenings.  Interns will assist the Post-Production Coordinator and FRONTLINE OutPost staff with a variety of tasks, including but not limited to tracking assets, archiving production media, footage research and client services. 

Qualifications:

  • Be responsible, show initiative, and possess a general understanding of television production
  • Must be able to work in a fast paced environment.

 

This internship requires a commitment of 16-20 hours a week. The work schedule is flexible and will be determined on an individual basis.

Frontline accepts and reviews resumes on a rolling basis.
