Internships

Today I start interviewing for a internship at a number of different production companies around town. At noon I meet with Maguire Productions, which is Tobey Maguire's production company. Then I have an interview with Raygun Productions, which is currently working on a Renee Zellweger comedy called My One and Only.

My whole purpose of doing an internship is making relationships and learning more about the business. In the next week, I also have interviews with Thunder Road, Revelations (Morgan Freeman's Production House), Radar Pictures, and Misher Films. My hope is to find the perfect fit somewhere among all these companies!

The interview schedule, along with actually having to write pages already for Tovenray's Curse PLUS pitch stories for my comedy spec, is a tad bit stressful.

What would you do in the internship? Would you go on site for the filming? If so you should do the Rene Zelwieger one b/c they're filming in Bmore.

I'm not exactly sure. I do know I'd read scripts and make notes and recommend them and stuff like that. Attend development meetings. That would be great to be on set for films too.

Maguire Entertainment's contact was sick so that meeting is rescheduled for Monday.

and... my interview with Raygun Productions got pushed back to Monday, too. (I found that out once I was actually in Hollywood. Oh well.)

Did you make the pitch for the curse story? How'd it go?

Pretty nuetral... I don't think people were really loving it, but I just have to deal with that. In all honesty, most film school students aren't into G rated movies or Narnia/Tolkien fantasies...
