The Harvard University Department of Athletics is currently accepting applications for three (3) 10-month internship in Athletics Multimedia. The interns will report directly to the Director of Multimedia and Production, and assist with coverage of the university's 42-sport varsity athletics program.
The interns will work as part of the game-day video production team, operating technical equipment to produce and broadcast the video board show and online stream during Harvard athletics events. After appropriate training, the interns will take on the role of Director/Producer at some games, with responsibility over all video and audio elements of the game, and a game-day leadership role over 10-15 game-day video production assistants. The interns will work in collaboration with the communications and marketing teams, creating broadcast timing sheets and scripts and any required pre-production material. Additionally, the interns will work on post-production video editing projects, creating original content for the GoCrimson.com website, video board shows and online streams.
The interns will gain hands-on experience in game-day productions, non-linear video editing, graphic design and broadcast engineering.
