It’s that time again, upward mobility-seeking readers! The Pitchfork.tv office in scenic Greenpoint, Brooklyn is in need of interns to assist in production and administrative capacities. Our ideal candidates will be available 10-15 hours a week (minimum), based in the New York area, and willing to work for experience or school credit. To be more specific, here are the types of people we’re looking for:
1: PRODUCTION ASSISTANTS
Pitchfork.tv is seeking New York-based interns with experience in shooting and cinematography. The ideal candidate will be well-versed in various SD and HD cameras, with lighting, mic placement, and live shooting experience a plus. Duties include (but are not limited to): prepping gear for shoots, white balancing, syncing, coordinating mic/line inputs, and monitoring audio recordings, as well as some actual shooting. This position exists predominantly in the field and will largely occur on evenings and weekends. Because many of our shoots take place at music venues, candidates under 21 cannot be considered.
