After reading everyone else’s blogs (which are all stellar!), I realized that I need to make an important distinction: though my internship is secured, my summer plans are still somewhat up in the air. In my last post I explained to you guys how this “Thor” position came about: I was put in contact with the producer of the film and was accepted as an intern based solely my resume and a brief phone interview. This was an exciting moment for me, so exciting that logistical details such as housing and transportation were the farthest thing from my mind.
Luckily I got started with the search early so I had plenty of time to mull over these “little” details. Well, unfortunately, in the business of entertainment and especially in Los Angeles, things change at lightning speed and nothing is ever guaranteed. Needless to say, I am still trying to clarify and confirm my living arrangements. The cool thing about Marvel is that they are being very lenient with my schedule and basically invite me to start and end my internship when it’s convenient for me to do so (being a Buckeye carries that much weight, I guess :p ). So, tentatively, my plans are as follows:
Ahh! I can hardly wait, but man am I nervous. None of the latter is for sure so stay tuned. The most important thing to remember about the entertainment industry (and any industry really) is that you have to be persistent, patient, confident in your abilities, and strategic/forward thinking. I can already see where I could have been more proactive (housing!) and am sure that I’ll learn a ton more in the weeks and months to come. I’d love to hear what you guys have to say / answer any question you may have! Also, if any can help me understand how to pack for two months (ladies, you understand the issue here), I would be forever grateful.
