Summit Video Production Internship


Video Production Internship

Video production interns at Summit are given the opportunity to build experience and further their filmmaking skills through working on many projects over a summer. We believe that well-told stories have the power to impact hearts and minds, and film is one of the strongest mediums for doing just that. We focus on visual storytelling and being intentional with every step of the production process, whether it be for a social media video or Student Conference highlight film. In every project, we hone in on how to tell stories in relational and meaningful ways, using the decisions of lighting, lenses, and movement (to name a few) to further that message.

Daily education, spiritual development, lots of hands-on practice, and regular feedback are major parts of the program. During the internship, each intern will work be a part of making multiple videos, and will take full responsibility for at least one project, guiding it through pre-production, production, and post-production processes. The environment is energetic, relational, and fast-paced.
