Lights. Camera. Action.
It takes a lot to bring a TV or movie to life.In general, TV or film production is a complex, expensive, and highly collaborative process that brings creative talent together with business interests. The entertainment industry is one of the biggest in the US and one of the most difficult to break into. Actors, producers, and directors are only a few of the people involved in the making of a movie or TV show. Whether you want to be on the business side of the industry or the creative side, an internship is the best way to get your foot in the door.
