Priestley Motion Pictures Internship Program

"I've never received better advice about professionalism and navigating the work world from anyone than Joanna. I still carry that advice to this day. She was the perfect mentor!" -Yan Nguyen

“Working with Joanna was extremely helpful and I learned so much about the Portland film industry from an insider’s point of view. I especially loved the tips and tricks she shared. It was a great experience!” -Natalie Paik

 

Interns work directly with Joanna Priestley, developing their animation skills and learning about directing, animating and producing. You will get information on filmmaking, fundraising, grant writing, film festivals, distribution and how to run your own small business. Internships last from four to eight weeks and hours are arranged to fit your schedule. Interns need to know how to animate and it is helpful, but not essential, to know Toon Boom Harmony, Adobe Animate and/or After Effects.
