One of the best ways to break into Hollywood is to work as an intern at a production company. Even if your ultimate goal is to be a screenwriter or director, there is great value in spending some time at a production company.
The Odysseus Fellowship program places qualified applicants in paid three-month internships at leading production companies, working for movers and shakers in the industry. In addition, we will help cover your travel costs to and from L.A. (if necessary). And we offer a stipend of up to $5000 to help you make ends meet while you are working hard to establish yourself. Each fellowship will last for 12 weeks, and applicants must be committed to living and working in the Los Angeles area during that period. We usually stagger our internships throughout the year, with some beginning in the spring, fall and summer.
