Notes on red carpet events to give you an idea of what to expect:

-Interns will be covering red carpet events, but on bigger A-list events, it will depend on credential approvals.

-Red carpet events are either invited or requested. You are either approved or denied (you can be denied even when invited). If approved, you usually get 1, 2, or 3 credentials, so the internship will depend on event approvals.

-Red carpets usually last 30 minutes to an hour when the carpet opens; they're fast-paced. Media check-in is 30 minutes or one hour earlier.

-Not every celebrity stops for interviews, especially A-listers. If so, it might be just 1-2 questions.

-Celebrities usually don't come to you to be interviewed unless you are with E!, Extra, or ET. You always need to hustle. Always be ready to improvise. Red carpets are unpredictable. Space is always tight.

-In interviews, ask unique, right-to-the point questions. No stuttering. Avoid interruptions. Don't talk about you. Do not be too intrusive with your questions. Always get something newsworthy out of every interview. Time your interviews—not too short or too long; other reporters are waiting to interview too.

-Today many talent walk the red carpet, 20–60+, so be ready to improvise on interviews with talent you didn't prepare before the event.-Often you will see the same talent you interviewed before so be ready to interview them once again and so on.

-Do not bring friends or family to red carpets. LA traffic is crazy; always leave early. Plenty of free parking, but hard to find sometimes. Sometimes events will validate parking.

-After the pandemic, media space on the red carpet is limited.

Additional notes:

-Interviews for this internship are in-person at a Hollywood location if you are currently in Los Angeles.

-I might do interviews using WhatsApp or FaceTime only if you are outside Los Angeles.

-Please send me as much information about you as possible for consideration (an updated resume (pdf), reel (if any), links to recent work, social links, etc.).

-Make sure you include your current e-mail and phone number.

-Editing is done on FCPX or Adobe Premiere.

-Monopods and handheld

-News style shooting

***NEW YORK reporters/interns ONLY***

-If you live in NYC and want to do reporting there, then please let me know.

-You will need to have your own cameraperson.

-I can send you to events there when available.
