24 Frames Internship

Upon successful completion of the school, students have the opportunity to sign up for a 3-month internship with 24 Frames.

24 Frames, a filmmaker’s group, has been making shorts and feature films for more than a decade. Based in Hawaii and created by our film school faculty members, 24 Frames has produced over 50 short films, receiving dozens of awards in both national and international film festivals.

In 2009, 24 Frames began production of feature films. One such film, The Land of Eb, was an official selection at one of the most prestigious film festivals in the world, the Toronto International Film Festival.

During the three-month Practicum, graduates of the School of Film have the opportunity to produce a variety of short films with the objective to gain experience and explore the visual narrative style that best fits the individual.

Those that successfully complete the internship can join 24 Frames as full members for a period of 2 years or more. As a full member the intern can continue to work on short films of his/her own authorship as well as becoming a crew member on other feature films produced by 24 Frames or any of our partners in The Film Institute team.

Interns design their own path of development to becoming filmmakers in their field of choice. For example, if the intern's goal is to become a Director of Photography, he or she will start working as a camera assistant on shorts directed by our faculty members. As he or she gains experience they will then become camera operator and Director of Photography for the different short films being produced.

As feature film opportunities become available, this same student will move to work alongside an experienced Hollywood Director of Photography until becoming a Director of Photography personally.

By working together in making films, we help develop unique individual paths for those who have interest in: directing, producing, writing, editing, camera operation and lighting, production design, hair, make up, wardrobe, sound, and music (film scores).

We also have some traditional internship opportunities available with film production companies in Hollywood and all over the world.
