Video Internship

  • Position classification: Exempt, full time


Are you a budding filmmaker with a passion for social justice and progressive issues? American Progress is looking for an intern to join the Video team to expand the organization’s visual media offerings.

Interns learn many of the basic skills it takes to be a visual communicator at a progressive nonprofit, working on videos to be featured on American Progress’ web sites and social media accounts. Interns will also have a front-row seat to American Progress’ many events featuring progressive luminaries. This internship is best suited for film, photography, and visual journalism students with an electronic media background who are looking for hands-on experience with a fast-paced team. Experience with Adobe Creative Cloud and various HD cameras preferred. 

Please send your resume and clips reels (if available).

Other duties may include conducting targeted research and reporting on policy meetings, seminars, hearings, and lectures. Whenever possible, interns are encouraged to write on the subject of their choice either as a contributor to a larger final piece or as an individual author of a column for the website.
