Australians in Film, the LA-based entertainment guild for Australian entertainment professionals, today opened applications for the Village Roadshow Entertainment Group and Animal Logic internship.
The internship is open to Australian film business undergraduate students and recent graduates who demonstrate significant potential in their areas of expertise.
The program involves working with Village Roadshow Pictures and Animal Logic executives in Los Angeles to gain hands-on experience in developing, acquiring, packaging and producing feature films for the international market.
Valued at $20,000, the internship will run from January-March 2016 with living and travel expenses covered while the recipient gets work experience in the Hollywood studio system.
VREG CEO Greg Basser said, “As an Australian executive working in Hollywood, I know it can be challenging for students and recent graduates to get a ‘foot in the door’, so we are pleased to offer this internship in partnership with Animal Logic and Australians in Film.”
Animal Logic CEO/founder Zarah Nalbandian said, “Animal Logic Entertainment is excited to welcome another Aussie intern into our Los Angeles team. Australia has always punched well above its weight in terms of producing groundbreaking content for all screens as well as representing the very best emerging creative talent.”
Australians in Film president Simonne Overend said, “The Village Roadshow and Animal Logic internship is a unique opportunity for a talented Australian graduate to gain hands-on experience working at two leading Australian companies doing extraordinary work here in Hollywood."
The program is part of AIF’s non-profit goal to serve as a bridge between the US and Australian film and TV industries.
Applications must be submitted to Australians in Film by AEST October 2 at 10am. For further information visit: www.australiansinfilm.org.
