Jan 25, 2018

Posted in: Advertising internships, Internships & scholarships, Journalism internships, Public Relations internships

Taliesin Nexus is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for the 2018 Odysseus Fellowship program.  Odysseus Fellows are placed in paid three-month internships at Hollywood production companies, management firms, TV writing staffs, and digital media companies.  Successful applicants are young, liberty-inspired filmmakers or other creatives pursuing a career in the entertainment industry as a writer, director, producer, or other creative role. This is a perfect opportunity for a recent or soon-to-be graduate starting their media/entertainment career!

Some examples of companies Odysseus fellows have been placed at include:

• ImageMovers (Cast Away, The Polar Express)

• Disruption Entertainment (The Revenant, Noah)

• Mpower Pictures (Man Down, Machine Gun Preacher)

• Warp LLC (Mr. and Ms. Smith, Equilibrium)

• Tribune Studios (Salem TV series)

• Defy Media (Smosh, Screen Junkies)

Internship candidates participate in a rigorous application process in which successful applicants must demonstrate superior creative talent, previous industry experience, and a passion for liberty.  Accepted fellows receive a $5000 stipend paid in bi-weekly installments during their three-month fellowship.

The educational component focuses on career and talent development.  Odysseus fellows attend TN’s Apollo Workshop and contribute to the Taliesin Nexus Pallas Athene Film Study Guide. You will receive a list of 100 films from which you'll choose ten to write short summaries of regarding the theme of liberty. Finally, fellows will write for TN’s Smash Cut Culture blog; exploring the gaps and seams between our liberties and our culture.

One valuable measure of a successful intern is whether he or she was noticed by executives and, with the help of those mentors, attain a paid position at the conclusion of the fellowship or some other type of relationship that helps further his or her career.  Many of our interns have been offered jobs or attached to projects after their fellowships ended.

We fill internships on a rolling basis based on the needs of our host companies so click here to learn more or to apply before all of our spots are gone!
