I’m excited to announce that we officially have our first Portuguese intern. Antonio Aleixo arrived in Shreveport, LA last week and has already gotten to work in the editing department of the independent feature film Skateland. Aleixo is working under Yusef Svacina, an alumnus of the University of Texas’s Department of Radio-Television-Film. We’re looking forward to hearing about Aleixo’s experiences, and also to working with the interns we have coming to Austin in the coming weeks and months.
This program is the culmination of a lot of ground work, and we’re excited to have it up and running. There’s a lot more information about the program available on the internship page. One notable change we have made is to institute rolling deadlines, to make the program more accessible to students who are still in coursework. Students who are interested in applying should do so at least two months prior to when they would want to intern.
