CC alum and Colorado Documentary Filmmaker is looking for a CC student intern to help him get a 10-city Colorado tour off the ground, and most importantly, a Colorado Springs screening event ASAP.
A small grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and Colorado Creative Industries will help fund the tour. Each event is meant to be inclusive, inviting other Colorado-based members of our creative team along with other short films and selected local experts (e.g., on water issues or documentary professionals), classroom visits, media appearances, and more.
He has years of audience-building campaigns from his experience at Warren Miller Films and would be a great resource for students interested in any creative industry.
The ideal candidate would be interested in event management and promotion, know a little about event planning at CC and the Colorado Springs area. The work would entail helping to secure a host of the screening and location; planning/executing a promotion/PR campaign; and helping to put on the event day itself.
You don’t have to be a Film and Media major. Students from Environmental Studies or other programs could be very interested in the networking opportunities this will present for their own interests.
To express your interest, write a short note to CC alum (Anthropology ’94) and documentary filmmaker, Greg I. Hamilton at firstname.lastname@example.org
