Looking for an intern who would like the experience of adding static and dynamic visual recordings of events and curriculum to the Empowerteen program through Videography and movie editing. An understanding of what would draw the attention of the teenage population and their parents into learning more about this beneficial program through video clips, audio, and short educational, promotional, and inspirational movies and memes would make you an ideal candidate. The intern will be working on producing, directing, capturing and editing promotional media content and curriculum through projects such as:
-videos for the website (wordpress) and social media sites (YouTube)
-edit video productions to be uploaded to YouTube and post video updates

-potentially create stop-action or whiteboard video to demo lessons more conceptually (optional add-on assignment)
-may create music through music editing program to add to backdrop of short films (optional add-on assignment)
This intern will need to be discreet, kind, and have a good affect to work well with parents and teens while taking pictures and videos at the events, be proficient at and have access to photo and video equipment, editing software (like iMovie and GarageBand or other), as well as a mind for contributing to brainstorming and strategizing ideas with the program director during each project. Good candidate will be able to drive to on-site 60 minute meetings in Beaverton 1-2 times monthly, with weekly visits in the first month. Will be available by phone and e-mail to check in on progress and able to meet deadlines for various projects. Can easily collaborate with other interns who will be working on event coordination, and marketing/social media.
Prefer a candidate who can devote time to working on projects given at least 5-10 hours weekly, and is available to follow-through on promotional projects starting May and into September, as well as physically present extended hours when available during the June/July/August summer events.
