The Oklahoma Film + Music Office (OF+MO) is now accepting applications for the 2020 Spring Internship Program. OF+MO seeks to provide selected interns with an understanding of the film and music industries in a professional state agency setting by involving them in diverse projects throughout the spring semester.
OF+MO supports our state’s thriving film and music industries by administering the Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate Program and connecting filmmakers and musicians with jobs, local businesses and diverse locations. Located on Film Row in Oklahoma City, OF+MO is a division of the Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Department, which includes Oklahoma Today, Discover Oklahoma, Oklahoma State Parks and Travel.
We are particularly interested in candidates with experience in or enthusiasm for film, music, public relations or marketing for specialized projects. Interns will be selected based on previous experience, professionalism and university level. Priority will be given to those in their junior or senior year. Previous office experience is a plus.
Intern responsibilities will include researching and compiling film and music events throughout Oklahoma for our website and our monthly newsletter, Now Playing. Chosen candidates will gain valuable experience in the development of OF+MO’s Production Directory, Locations Directory and Music Directory by assisting in research and data input. Interns will also support the office by locating and archiving press articles, conducting research, assisting with marketing inventory and/or other various special projects. Interns may be given the opportunity to participate in locations scouting and set visits, experience special events sponsored by OF+MO and will be exposed to other divisions within tourism. Assistance with general office opening and closing duties is required and expected on a daily basis. Internships are not production-based.
All internships are unpaid and open to those seeking college credit toward graduation. It is the responsibility of the intern and the student’s advisor to track their hours and complete all enrollment and coursework requirements in accordance to their college or university.
This internship will last nine weeks, beginning the week of February 3. If interested, please fill out the intern application form providing a resume and cover letter. Deadline for submission is Wednesday, January 15.
