DescriptionWe’re looking for college students (with college credit) who love Virtual Reality and are hardcore VR nerds to join our team as interns.
You might have been to internships which promises you a lot but you end up running errands, cleaning and other mean things. I went through that myself. This isn't that kind of an internship. You will be writing for our flagship portal "Cultiwate VR", which is scheduled to launch in August.
Cultiwate VR is the first of its kind platform for VR filmmakers where we curate VR-X content and help the VR Filmmakers to distribute their content to the right places. As part of Cultiwate VR, We will be reporting news, latest updates, interviews and be a portal for everything VR. Our purpose is to create and deliver content so compelling it entertains, informs and shapes the world.
We will let you write and publish your own stories, interview the stalwarts of the VR industry. Additionally, You will also get to attend press-briefings, conferences, workshops and seminars. As an intern, you’ll be writing as much as you can. You’ll work on a variety of projects, from blog posts to videos. You’ll have many opportunities to write about the next big thing in the VR world, but also to write about VR tech news as it relates to your other interests, whether they lie in tool chains, game engines or hardware.
We’re looking for interns who are independent and self-motivated with good news judgement. We need people who write quickly and accurately, who already live and breathe Virtual Reality.
You will always be in the company of experienced filmmakers and tech people currently working at Major Tech companies and will get to play around with New GPUs, VR Headsets and new VR Experiences before anyone else gets their hands on them.
The Internship is on-location or remote or both. The hours and days are flexible. On-location is based on the Iconic Universal Studios Backlot in Universal City, CA (Greater Los Angeles area).
