Young Adults (Ages 18-25)

From technical training to a career in the digital media industry.   

The BAYCAT paid internships provide technical training for aspiring media producers and an opportunity to work with our resident professionals at BAYCAT Studio.

 

​The BAYCAT Studio interns build skills in digital media, including filmmaking, editing, and motion graphics. We also offer professional career coaching and mentorship, since we believe the learning the soft-skills is equally important. Interns graduate with a personal reel, a LinkedIn page, and a resume that showcases clients like The Golden State Warriors, UCSF, and the National Park Service.

Production Assistance

Working on set, the production assistant supports all aspects of the film shoot. Tasks such as setting up equipment, organizing props, and supporting the producers and directors.

Production Coordination

With heavy involvement in pre-production, the production coordinator makes sure the crew is set up for success. Tasks include making arrangements before the shoot day and often supporting the producers and directors on set.

Cinematography

The cinematographer acts as the camera operator on set, working closely with the director of photography to capture the framing and lighting that will best communicate the director’s vision.

Video Editing &

Motion Graphics

The video editor is responsible for editing the recorded raw footage into the finished product. Most video editors learn motion graphics to be able to give movement to titles, lower thirds, and informational text.

Frequently asked questions

Is the service really free?


Yes! The service is 100% free and there’s never any obligation to sign or move forward with one of our recommendations. Interview as many agents as you’d like until you find the perfect match. When you sell with Brima, you’ll not pay anything when your home actually sells. There is no idden fees.




What do you mean by “any condition”? What if my house need extensive repairs?


We will buy your house as-is, period! You don’t need to do any more repairs! Whether your house needs minor cosmetics or is a tear down, we’ll buy it in any condition.




How do you determine the offer amount


We offer the maximum amount possible, our offers are very competitive. If our offers weren’t competitive, we wouldn’t have purchased thousands of houses! There is no magic percentage we use, every house is unique. Our Real Estate Consultants take into consideration the age, condition, size, features and location of the home much like an appraiser would. We factor in the costs to repair the house, what other homes in the area are selling for and how long it is taking to sell those homes. These and several other factors are researched to determine a fair offer.




Am I obligated to use your services once I complete your form?


No! You have no obligation at all if you submit an information form and receive an offer to buy your house. You are under no obligation at all. All we ask for is the opportunity to make an offer for your house, you’re in the driver’s seat as to whether you accept the offer or not. You are in complete control. You are only obligated to our service if you have entered into a purchase agreement with us, as with any other real estate transaction.




How Soon will i close after accepting the offer?


You will work with your dedicated advisor to determine the closing date and other conditions, but you will have considerable flexibility to pick a date that works for you. In general, you can close in as little as seven or as many as 90 days after the sale contract is signed.




How soon do I Have to move after closing


We offer a Late Checkout program that enables you to close your home sale, receive your proceeds, and temporarily rent back your home from us for up to 60 days.




How We Can Help


We specialize in buying homes from sellers in a variety of different situations. Below are some of the most common situations that we encounter. We use our real estate and financial experience to find the best solution for every homeowner.




In Need of Repairs


Your house is a fixer-upper or in need of major repairs and you can’t afford or just don’t want to pay for repairs yourself.




Relocation


A new dream job popped up across the country and you need to sell your home to relocate.




Inheritance / Probate


You and the beneficiaries are looking to move on and sell an inherited property.




Foreclosure


If you are behind on payments, we can work with you to stop financial strain and prevent foreclosure.




Vacant House


Vacant homes can be a lot of work and a source of stress. Rather than let your property sit empty, you can sell the property and have some money in your pocket.




Divorce


A home is a difficult asset to deal with during divorce. Since you have no control how long it will take to sell, you risk holding up the completion of the divorce process.
