Davis Media Access has a few openings in its four-month television production internship program. DMA is the community media center in Davis, with a mission to enrich and strengthen the community by providing alternatives to commercial media for local voices, opinions and creative endeavors.
The internship is available to students in Davis public schools and provides hands-on experience and exposure to many aspects of community television production. The internship focuses on coverage of school sporting and performing arts events, as a component of DMA’s partnership with the school district’s Educational Access Television Channel 17.
Interns must be at least 16 years old and able to work three to six hours per week, generally between 5 and 10 p.m. Additionally, they must be self-motivated, able to work well with a diverse group of people, and able to demonstrate aptitude with computers or video equipment. Training is provided, and academic credit is available when possible.
The deadline to apply is Sept. 13.
