Documentary Film Social Media and Web Internship
Description: Fiege Films seeks interns to assist with social media and marketing outreach for the company and our documentary film projects. Our current project explores the story of a direct action campaign waged in East Texas to stop construction of the Keystone XL pipeline—a journey that starts with one man’s determination to keep his family safe and leads to questions about climate change and civic participation. To learn more about the film and see a trailer, check out our website at The company has other projects in various stages of production.

Throughout the spring, Fiege Films will seek to increase its reach on social media and Web platforms, including Twitter, Facebook, and its own website. Interns will work closely with the production team to write and edit posts, create media to share online, interact with environmentalist leaders online, and design visual content for the Web. Interns will also work as a team, providing a chance to get to know your peers.

In the past, Fiege Films interns have had opportunities to work as second camera operators, sound recordists, editors, and PAs on commercial shoots. We alsohold social events outside of work, such as happy hours and screenings, in which interns have a chance to spend more time with other interns and with professionals in the Austin film world.
