Description

I am an award winning TV writer who works from my home office in Connecticut. I have almost 20 years experience writing for TV and I am currently looking for interns to help me work an a new web series I wrote and will be shooting and in return I will help them improve their own writing techniques if they want to write for TV and film. I currently have 4 interns who will be leaving shortly when they graduate which is why I am looking for new interns. The internship will also involve accompanying me to screenings in NY and watching current movies to become familiar with the marketplace. In addition to writing for TV I have had plays done in NYC and regional theatre. I teach my interns how to create A/B/C stories and how to write Character Bibles and how to finish a script that will sell. I also provide opportunities to interns so they can move on in the industry after they have worked for me.
Since I work at home I can work around individual schedules and each internship is tailor made depending on the interest of the applicant - as long as it's centered around writing for an audience. Each intern should leave this internship with a marketable teleplay or screenplay.

Responsibilities

The intern will be expected to divide his or her time between helping me with my scripts and completing polished scripts of their own that I will help with. Other days may be spent watching and analyzing movies. And if they are interested in being involved with the upcoming shoot for my new web series that can be arranged. As i said earlier, the responsibilites of intern can be adjusted per individual. But this is an opportunity to learn how to write for TV/film and how to sell scripts when you have a script that is ready to go out.

Requirements

Interns must show writing talent (with a writing sample) and have the tenacity it takes to succeed in this business. I am also looking for people who can drive to and from the internship. I do not drive, so may ask interns to drive me to appointments or to nearby locations for the upcoming shoot in my car (so I pay for gas. ) However, in return, I am happy to pass on what I've learned from spending years in writers rooms. I use Movie Magic to write scripts so knowledge of that program is a plus but not required.
