Internal Internships

The Film Studies Program offers a number of production internships throughout the academic year. In the past, students have interned at Mankato and Twin Cities companies and educational institutions who contact us directly with video production projects. One of the program's ongoing internships is with Maverick Video Productions (MVP) at Minnesota State University, Mankato. At MVP, students intern in media business and project management, production, and/or post-production/editing. Other internships are with B507 and the Water Resources Center at MSU, True Facade Pictures and Purple Porchlight Productions in Mankato, and KSMQ (Minnesota Public Television) in Austin. Students who have completed one or more production classes are eligible for these MSU, Mankato internships. Students in the Film and Media Studies BA and Film Studies Minor should contact Prof. Steve Rybin or Prof. Donna Casella for more information on these internships.
