Attention to AU film students! You might be aware that a whole bunch of productions film in DC, and you might have wondered how to become involved in one of them.
The opportunity is finally here: HBO is taking applications for a week-long production assistant training program on the set of Veep, filming in DC at the end of this month. DC’s Motion Picture and Television Development points out that this is not a job, but instead, it’s a paid seven-day internship “designed to provide career exposure in a limited time frame.” Working on the set of the one TV’s biggest comedies is an excellent opportunity for an up-and-coming SOC student – and there’s money, too.
We’re sharing this now because the deadline to apply is this Wednesday. Get thee to the program’s website and fill out the application ASAP. HBO seems to be hiring for production, art, and props, so this should be tantalizing for more than just future cinematographers or key grips.
