IRTS SUMMER FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM

Job Description:

The Summer Fellowship Program is the cornerstone program of the IRTS Foundation. Often referred to as a “media boot camp,” this highly selective program teaches a talented group of up-and-coming communicators the realities of the business world through an all-expense-paid internship in New York City, which includes practical experience and career-planning advice.

The IRTS Summer Fellowship Program has had a key role in launching the careers of top professionals in the media business for more than 45 years. This nine-week expense-paid opportunity begins with a comprehensive one-week orientation to cable, broadcasting, advertising, and digital media. Fellows have a rare opportunity to question a stellar line-up of industry leaders at company visits, panel discussions, and negotiation simulations. Following this first week, Fellows gain full-time “real world” experience at New York-based media corporations to which each is assigned for the duration of the Fellowship. Throughout the summer, Fellows also learn how to successfully network by attending industry events and by conducting informational interviews with executives.

Participants emerge from this program with a strong understanding of our entire business, along with carefully honed skills in career planning, resume writing, and interviewing. Fellows are then able to reinforce or redefine specific career goals before starting a career within the media industry.

Eligibility: Students must be college juniors, seniors, or graduate students as of April 2017.

Compensation: Expense-Paid Opportunity: Travel, housing, and living allowance included.

New Addition – ikan Gravity

ikan_gravity

 

Piggy backing off of our DJI Gimbal announcement, we are excited to announce another big addition to the cage – the ikan Gravity 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal System (GR-T03).  This gimbal can fly with the Sony FS100, Canon 5D, Sony PXW-X70, and even the Sony FS7 in the equipment room. This thing is such a beast that it can also support the FS7 with one of our new Sony CineAlta Lenses.

If you’re interested in flying the Gravity and using it for a project keep your eye on the Workshop Calendar. The workshop should take about 1.5 hours and will cover properly balancing the camera and basic operation techniques. Keep in mind that you must first be certified with the DJI Ronin to use the ikan Gravity gimbal system.
