Bora Yoon, Weights and Balances,
PROTOYPE Festival 2014
The festival is not currently seeking to fill any paid positions.
However, we are happy to accept applications for those interested in internships with PROTOTYPE, or if you are interested in volunteering we would love to hear from you.
Please send a résumé and letter of interest to email@example.com or to the attention of the Prototype Intern Coordinator, HERE 145 Sixth Ave, New York, NY 10013. You must specify an area of interest.
Festival interns must be willing to work 15-20 hours per week.
Marketing Interns are fully integrated into the festival marketing team, and the promotion of the artists and productions in the festival. Interns participate in the conception and launch of all marketing strategies including creating print and web advertisements, maintaining the website, distributing postcards, organizing mailing list exchanges, and helping to designing program and lobby displays. They must have strong organizational and interpersonal skills, and preferably possess some experience with either graphic design software or basic HTML.
General Management/Administration Interns will assist the Festival Producer. Responsibilities will include contract drafting, budgeting, finance and general administrative duties in all departments. This is a great opportunity for a student wishing to develop experience in non-profit art management at a small, hands-on organization.
Video Production Interns will assist the marketing department in producing video content for the festival. Interns will help shoot interviews, behind-the-scenes footage, and special events, and will also edit the footage for distribution as short online videos. They must have strong Final Cut Pro skills, experience shooting digital video, and a sample of prior editing work in a documentary format (can be short/web-based). 20 hours/week; interns may work 10 hrs/wk from home if they have their own computer and editing software.
Fundraising Interns will assist the Development Consultant. Responsibilities will include funder management and relations, generating donation receipts and funder communications, implementing individual donor campaigns, assisting with special events, and, for the right candidate, grant writing and reporting. Candidates must possess strong writing skills, be detail oriented, and thrive at working independently. This is a great opportunity for an intern wishing to develop experience with non-profit arts funding and to understand the relationship between financial development and season programming.
Production Interns will receive hands-on experience in all areas of technical theatre (sound, lighting, carpentry, video, and costumes), in the form of load-ins, strikes, and providing assistance to the shows running in the festival. They work primarily with the festival Production Manager and Technical Director. Interns also assist with basic office duties, such as running errands, organization and cleaning of office spaces, creating documents, etc. We also accept interns to work solely on a specific production, acting as an assistant to a member of the production staff. Duties for this internship include being in rehearsals and working backstage for tech and performances. Experience in technical theatre is a plus, but is not necessary. Hours vary for this internship.
