Helen Whitney Productions / Documentary on Forgiveness and Reconciliation…Looking for interested interns

Intern should be versed in visual culture, intellectually sophisticated, and able to multi-task in fast-paced environment. Must be meticulous, very organized, and able to work independently. Looking for someone with a professional and friendly phone manner. A great introduction to the industry for anyone with a serious interest in visual culture, research, or archival work.

This is an intensive part-time opportunity to learn about film-making. Expect to work 15-20 hours a week, minimum 3 months. Candidates must have own laptop. This is an unpaid position but carries the possibility of film credit and a reference if work is satisfactory. College students can request credit. Also a great opportunity to work with a dynamic production and archival team. In the process, the intern will be exposed to the “behind the scenes” happenings of documentary film production.

Only candidates who can meet these requirements will be considered. Please email resume and cover letter. No fax, no phone calls.

Helen Whitney has been writing, producing and directing films for the networks for the last 30 years. She has won Emmys, DuPonts and Peabodys and is widely respected for the integrity of her work. Her recent films explore the spiritual landscape: Frontline pieces such as “John Paul II: The Millennial Pope,” “Faith and Doubt at Ground Zero,” and most recently, a four-hour special on “The Mormons.”

Any interested candidates may respond to me, Jon Allen at [email protected], or Rebecca Wexler, our chief archivist, at [email protected]
