Internships are a key step in gaining experience and contacts in the film and television industry. Students are required to take two internships during the program each spring. The first-year students intern at entertainment companies with a focus on development and pre-production for film and television. In the second year, students concentrate on post-production with internships at companies involved in distribution and marketing. Past student internships include: Warner Brothers, DreamWorks Animation, Sony Studios, Disney Studios, William Morris Endeavor, Producers Guild of America, HBO, Logo, Benderspink, Jim Henson Company, Gary Sanchez Productions, Anonymous Content, CAA, Nickelodeon Animation Studios, Bold Films, and Bad Robot.
