My Fisher Internship
Allie Feinstein @ Marvel Enterprises

Written by:

dsc00825Hey there! I’m a current sophomore, studying marketing and theatre from Cleveland, Ohio. This year has flown by, but I can’t wait for summer! I leave for Los Angeles on June 20th and will be working all summer as a production intern for the film Thor, which is a Marvel film. When I first began the internship search in December, I had two criteria: I wanted a position in the entertainment industry and I wanted to be in Los Angeles. I spoke with Nadine Holmes and Diana Martin of the Alumni Association who sent out emails inquiring about potential job opportunities to Alumni on the west coast. One of the responses came from OSU alum and executive producer Arne Schmidt of “Thor” who let me know that there was an intern position open.

I have interned for one other film, but only for a couple of weeks. This summer, I am hoping to expand my knowledge of film production and marketing as well as expand my network of connections. I am definitely anxious to live on my own in Los Angeles and worry about being able to afford living expenses. Blogging will be a cool way to document and reflect upon my experience. Hopefully my blog will provide insight to others who are interested in pursuing a career in the entertainment industry!

    Allie,
    I was so excited when I heard about your internship. I am looking for a very similar internship for this coming school year. I was wondering if you could help me out. I’m a business major with a special area concentration in film production and enterprise. I would like to be a film producer. I would love to talk to you about your experience and see if you could give me a helping hand finding something. I would REALLY appreciate it.
    Thanks,
    Ali

    Hi Ali,

    I found your blog today by accident, but found it fascinating. I am moving to Los Angeles in a month after visiting last May. I have been a celeb makeup artist in NYC for many years (I’m quite a bit older than you), but I no longer want to pursue that. I’d like to pursue something on the business end of things in entertainment. Like you, I’m not quite sure what that is yet.

    As someone who cannot do an internship (I’ve got financial obligations that would not allow this), can you give me advice on how to land on a job similar to what you were doing in your internship? I know that’s a long shot, but I thought I’d ask.

    I’ve worked as a PR rep in addition to my work as a makeup artist and I think that’s the angle I’d like to take. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.
