Did you watch the video? It's pretty incredible. Our good friend Ted Irving put that together for us for our feature story, "Houston's Hidden Homeless
," and we're beyond happy with how it turned out.
Here at the Press, we love storytelling in all of its forms, from the well written feature to the beautiful shot slideshow to the captivating video, and we're lucky to work with talented writers, photographers and videographers to bring those stories to you.
In an effort to put out even more amazing videos, we're looking for a multimedia intern to work with us this Summer.
Once selected, the multimedia intern will work with our editors, reporters, web editor and art director to put together two brief segments each week, as well as two long-term projects over the course of the semester. This means the intern needs to be comfortable communicating quickly and clearly, working independently and juggling multiple projects with tight deadlines.
Candidates must be proficient in Apple Final Cut Pro X and Compressor, with some knowledge of Apple Motion as well as any editing software the intern may own.
We can't stress enough how important the next part is: You have to be a student to be an intern for the Press. That means you have to be enrolled in school and be able to receive intern credits for your time with us.
We require a minimum of 15 hours a week in the internship.
Also, you must have reliable transportation; we'll reimburse for mileage and assignment expenses. The internship itself is unpaid.
We have cameras and accessories, but generally speaking equipment is not provided, so make sure you have the gear to get the job done.
Interested in interning with us? Send a résumé and samples of your work to firstname.lastname@example.org, and make sure to include "Multimedia Intern" and "Houston Press" in the subject line. Thanks, and good luck!
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
