Summit Video Production Internship


Media: Video Production Internship

The narratives we consume influence our desires and shape our imaginations. Our beliefs are built on the stories we consider true. What stories are you telling? In a culture saturated with mediocre, false, and distracting narratives, we believe that well-told, intentional stories can support a biblical worldview and reveal God’s truth. At Summit, we aim to inspire and cultivate a more complete understanding of God through visual mediums. In every project, we hone in on how to tell stories in relational and meaningful ways, using the tools of lighting, lenses, and movement (to name a few) to sharpen our message.

Video production interns join Summit’s culture of creativity, working alongside a media team dedicated to excellence and growth in every artistic endeavor.  Daily education, spiritual development, hands-on practice, feedback, and mentoring are just a few of the rhythms each intern takes part in throughout the summer. As a part of the media team, video production interns will have the opportunity to build experience and further their skills as cinematographers, producers, editors, and directors. Every intern will own at least one project, guiding it through the whole filmmaking process – pre-production, production, and post-production – in addition to assisting with numerous other projects.
