CINEMALAD PRODUCTIONS, based in Sierra Madre, CA, is offering ongoing internships to assist in the making of a feature length documentary now in production.

AMSEL: ILLUSTRATOR OF THE LOST ART presents the first in-depth profile of legendary illustrator Richard Amsel (1947-1985), detailing the artist’s remarkable body of work while chronicling an enigmatic life marked with family heartbreak, celebrity friendships, financial hardships, creative genius, and a tragic end at the age of thirty-seven from AIDS.

Amsel remains a titanic figure within the realm of entertainment art, with work ranging from celebrated movie posters (including Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Sting, The Dark Crystal, and Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome), to iconic album and concert posters (including famous portraits of Bette Midler and Barbra Streisand), to magazine covers – including 37 covers for TV Guide. Yet while the Amsel’s illustrations remain extremely popular, little has ever been revealed about the man himself.

Now in production, the film will include extensive interviews with Amsel’s friends, celebrities, and colleagues, and will offer a new appreciation of the artist’s work. The documentary will also examine Amsel’s time within New York’s gay culture in the ‘70s, the onslaught of AIDS in the ‘80s, the aftermath of Amsel’s death, and his enduring creative legacy to generations of artists and moviegoers.

This is an ideal opportunity for those seeking to gain experience in documentary filmmaking, and anyone who has a passion for art and illustration.

Please note: The documentary’s subject matter contains content that may be objectionable to certain individuals. Issues involving the gay rights movement, gay lifestyles, drug use, and AIDS will be discussed. Some interviews contain adult language and themes.


We’re seeking an intern to assist with the preparation of images and motion graphics. The documentary will rely heavily on showcasing movie posters through animated motion-graphics in Adobe After-Effects.

Basic knowledge of Photoshop is preferred, but this position will involve extensive Photoshop work, and on-site training and instruction can be given. Experience in Adobe After Effects and Adobe Premiere Pro would be ideal, but are not essential. This opportunity will allow a candidate to work independently on their own schedule and initiative, off-site and without the need for travel. Instructions and guidance can be conducted via Skype/phone conferences in lieu of in-person meetings, if necessary. There will be considerable direct communication with the film’s director and producers, however.

Ideal candidates should be creative, and unafraid to bring creative ideas to the table.


Requirements: Computer & internet access, telephone and/or Skype account, Photoshop. (Note: We can provide Photoshop and computer access on site, if student can travel.)
