VIDEO PRODUCTION INTERNSHIP

Big Slate Media was created with a simple vision – create content that doesn’t suck. We have a passion for making video content that is relevant and interesting to a target audience. We believe that is the key to a content creation project.

Our internship program is designed to equip you with the tools you need to succeed in this industry. We recognized that universities have a hard time keeping up with changing gear, styles, and training so we’ve designed a program that teaches you the ins and outs of what we’ve learned over the years and try our best to keep it fresh. Our hope is that you’ll teach us something and we’ll teach you something. This way we both grow and ultimately, become better content creators.
