ShineGlobalLogoTransBGShine depends on our wonderful  interns to help us complete our work.  Without them we would not be able to make our films.  We offer the opportunity to learn how our films are made and see the inner workings of both a small non-profit and an independent film production company.  Please note that we only hire college students for our internships and can work with schools to offer credit.

For all internships positions we are looking for candidates that:

This internship offers the opportunity to be exposed to the inside workings of independent film production at a variety of stages as well as providing insight into the workings of a non-profit organization.
