2020 Summer Internship
POSTED:
SALARY:
Stipend
TIME:
Internship
EXPERIENCE:
BFA, MFA

LDG offers a summer internship program to a select number of qualified candidates. This internship will give participants an opportunity to work at a professional level with expert lighting designers and production managers in an on-the-job learning environment.

Prerequisites: Candidates need to have completed at least three years of college in a BFA, MFA, or equivalent degree. All candidates will complete an application prior to being considered.  Some experience with AutoCAD or Vector Works is preferred.

Time commitment/compensation: Interns will work 2-3 days per week and will receive a stipend of $100/day along with a Metrocard for public transportation. This internship is for a period of 8 weeks.

As a result of your internship with LDG, you will discover:

  • The nuances of broadcast lighting design from the perspective of expert designers. You will have an opportunity to:
    • Observe and assist in studio (or selectively on location)
    • Learn the key elements of drafting a lighting plot for broadcast studios and environments and be exposed to various other aspects of lighting design.  These can be quite different from the drafting standards for theater and live entertainment
  • The role of production management, including pre-production, production and post-production, including:
    • Equipment procurement
    • Scheduling and logistics
    • Budgeting
    • Close outs

Internship opportunities will be weighted towards either design or production, depending upon your experience and interests. By the end of the program, you will have a concrete idea of how the design and production processes work in tandem and the skills that are requisite to achieve expertise in either area.

Your time at LDG will be structured based on current activities in process in order to maximize your exposure.

To apply to this program, please contact Fred Uebele (uebele@ldg.com).

*Please note that we want you to carefully understand the financial commitments involved with assuming an internship in New York City. The daily stipend is just that, a modest amount of money which is unlikely to cover your living expenses. There may be opportunities where you can be hired as a crew member on specific projects, but please do not expect this income as part of your summer compensation.
