Meet our Spring 2023 Studio Interns!

Spring is here, and so are our budding artists! Many are recent grads from Bay Area cinema programs excited to tell meaningful stories that reflect their own identities. Our Spring 2023 Studio internship officially started this month, and this cohort is ready to get things rolling. Interns will attend hands-on workshops on gimbals, audio, location scouting, and more! They will also attend “Lunch & Learn” lectures with industry speakers, exposure trips to professional studios and rental houses, and gain on-set experience with BAYCAT Studio. By the end of the cohort, they will build on their technical skills and hone in on their artistic voices as they collaborate on projects. We have a diverse group of artists interested in pre-production, production, post-production, and we can’t wait to see what these creatives come up with in the next few months!
