Description

Di Novi Pictures is a film and television production company with a first-look film deal at Warner Bros. Pictures. We are headed by Denise Di Novi who has produced the films EDWARD SCISSORHANDS, ED WOOD, NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, BATMAN RETURNS, SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS, CATWOMAN, LITTLE WOMEN, A WALK TO REMEMBER, and RAMONA AND BEEZUS, CRAZY STUPID LOVE, MONTE CARLO, THE LUCKY ONE, IF I STAY, and FOCUS amongst others. We are currently in pre-production on projects at Warner Bros and Lifetime and have a busy development slate.

Interns will work closely with the Creative Executive to develop their coverage and pitching skills, and will also have the opportunity to interact with the CEO and President of the company. Responsibilities include: script and book coverage, reading project drafts, conducting project-based research, and light admin (scanning, copying). We will have intern meetings once a week where interns will learn about various aspects of the industry in a more formal setting. Every meeting will start with the interns pitching a script or book that they read that week to the group to practice their pitching skills. We will then move on to discuss the focus of the week. Weekly topics include: the major agencies and their different departments (Talent, Lit, Branding, TV, Packaging, etc.), what it's like to be an agency assistant, the studio development process, production and the different departments on set, business affairs and how writer/talent/director deals are structured, networking in the industry, resume review, etc.

This is a great opportunity for avid readers looking to get into film development and production.
