  • Perform and complete videography services in connection with the League’s All-Star Community Awards project.
  • Project begins around May 1 and will need to be completed by August 15.
  • Project consists of the preparation of four to five videos, totaling about 18 minutes in length.
  • Each video will include audio and visual elements.
  • Accompany the League’s communications coordinator on trips to the winning cities. The communications coordinator will conduct all interviews with winning cities and will handle all correspondence with winning cities. 
  • Provide the equipment to record the video and audio of all interviews and information for the videos, and will use his/her own time and equipment to complete the videos. 
  • Work with the League’s communications coordinator to complete the process in a timely and mutually agreed upon fashion. 
  • Final videos produced will be the property of the League and of the intern, with both parties having the right to use the final product as they see fit without the consent of the other party.
  • Provide the League with multiple copies of the videos and raw footage on DVDs. An electronic copy of the video, which can be posted online, will also need to be provided.
  • Should have a valid driver’s license. Although he/she probably won’t be driving a League vehicle, this is a precaution in case of emergency.
