Applications are typically reviewed by the entirety of our executive board, with directors in the Management Department focusing primarily on applicants for their team.

AnteaterTV offers a variety of opportunities for students to gain hands-on experience in the media industry. The three teams within the ATV Internship are Production, Management, and Anchoring. Click Here to learn more about each internship.

 

You are able to apply to all three teams (Production, Management, and Anchoring) in ATV. However, please be aware you will only be accepted into one team at this time. Should you be accepted into ATV, you may have the opportunity to switch teams at a later date.

On average, the estimated time commitment as an intern is 3 hours per week. ATV hosts weekly 1-hour general meetings that all members of ATV are required to attend, and depending on your department directors may schedule team meetings with their interns as needed. Aside from required meetings, depending on the project, interns may be expected to dedicate additional hours based on each project’s needs. For production interns and anchors especially, hours may fluctuate depending on what productions you are involved in and whether you are required on set. Filming for one project generally lasts one day for several hours, but some projects may require additional days of filming.

While prior experience is beneficial, it’s not always required. As fellow students, we understand the challenges and difficulties of finding professional job opportunities, so we are not expecting professional experience in your resume or portfolio. We welcome applicants who are passionate and eager to learn. We want to see your creativity and ideas, so feel free to share any school projects you’ve done in class or in your extracurriculars as well as any personal projects. If you’re new to a role, we will provide opportunities for training and support to help you grow in your position.

To prepare, we recommend reviewing the responsibilities and expectations for the position(s) you are applying for. Find out how your past experiences and interests align with our positions and make sure that is reflected in your application responses, resume, and portfolio.

No, we welcome applicants from diverse academic backgrounds. While certain majors or coursework may be relevant to specific roles, we value a wide range of skills and perspectives. Many members of ATV, both past and present, have come from a background outside of film and media production, and being in ATV has helped guide them to a path they are passionate about and gave them skills that complemented their career goals!
