The media industry today is a highly competitive environment – vacancies are less and experience is the only parameter taken seriously while recruiting fresh faces.
Freshers, mostly graduates just out of some media school, many a times remain clueless about how and where to start off their careers. At Lens Box Media Works, we understand their dilemma and strive to provide a good platform, which freshers can use to kickstart their careers.
Lens Box Media Works welcomes interns to work with them and get a good hang of the media industry through experiences in the field. Internships are provided in the fields of production design, assistance in direction, photography, cinematography among others. The company currently employs 10 interns assisting the core members in on-going projects, content creation, management and social media.
Lens Box Media Works also collaborates with production houses for various kinds of media services. Anyone from independent filmmakers (fiction/non-fiction) to production houses can collaborate with the company for producing a range of content – photoshoots, ad films or even short films.
Thomas, the founder-director of the company shares, “There is always a question of experience everywhere whenever you go out for seeking job. Students just out of their graduation really struggle to get a job in the media. We started off this company in order to invest our skills and talents in content that interests us and we want freshers who have the same interest to start off their work using these internships as a platform.”
