Media production company Storied Studios is seeking a Fall 2019 intern to help with content creation and communications outreach.

Storied Studios creates independent documentary, scripted, and animated film campaigns for not-for-profits, brands, television and streaming platforms.

This internship is primarily tied with one feature-length documentary in production, Story and Pictures By, directed by Emmy-nominated filmmaker Joanna Rudnick.

Intern/s will receive the opportunity to work closely with the documentary filmmaking team, assist on production shoots, and training in independent fundraising and post-production workflow.

We are looking for a time commitment of 10-15 hours per week, and the ability to work partially at our locations in Oakland, and partially remotely. At this time, the internship program is unpaid but can provide a stipend to cover any transportation or incurring costs.

To apply, please submit a resume, a writing sample, and include a short blurb about yourself and why you’re interested in this internship.


Storied Studios is willing to adapt the role and responsibilities to the interests of the intern, however, the key focuses include:

-Writing and publishing website blogs, social media posts
-Researching and identifying potential partners
-Developing pitch and press kit materials
-Identifying, organizing, and creating production still photos, behind-the-scenes footage, and other visual material


This opportunity is a good fit for a college junior, senior, or grad student interested in film production, documentary, and/or marketing/communications.

-Interest in independent production environments and working with a small team
-Strong writing skills
-Self-starter: We trust that individuals are able to work independently without the need for constant supervision.
-Familiarity with Google Suite (shared docs, spreadsheets, etc.)
-Design experience preferred
