Could you benefit from having a small team of multimedia students working with digital video and streaming media as interns for a 5-12 week period?
The Danish School of Television wants to expose the most talented of our multimedia students to extraordinary challenges, including working with or building streaming websites for companies or organizations in other countries. In the spring semester 2002, we are sending our students to the USA, Spain and Ireland.
Our students are very skilled, but the internships are an educational challenge we impose on them, not professional work that would require payment.
Depending on your present projects and how your company or organization would benefit, a dedicated project will be designed for a small team of 2-4 students. The students will be chosen for their relevant skills and your company can ask for samples of the student’s prior work, before accepting any team.
The interns would ideally be assigned to a production unit or a producer. They are capable of building websites with integrated streaming of live or pre-recorded images, producing streaming video of product presentations or board meetings, a virtual tour of your facilities or your customers, interviews with employees, infomercials, live conferences with your affiliates through your website, etc.
The only thing required by your company to benefit from this opportunity, is that you provide workspace, including workstations and coaching to the students. If needed, the team will bring an additional mobile “streaming unit” (camera and editing). Also the team has a professional coach from the School of Television and this coach will be your company?s contact person.
Unless otherwise arranged with you, the students are planning to arrive in New York around February 18th. However this can be arranged according to your wishes.
The students are financed by the school. However, IF your company finds the end result satisfying to the extent that you implement the work that has been pre-designed, the company would be expected to re-imburse the student of their travel-expenses.
Please contact me, Patricia L. Decker, the NY Representative, if you wish to discuss further. Or, if you are ready to design your web profile, please contact Lars Moller, the Director of the Program at firstname.lastname@example.org, as soon as possible.
If you want to know more about our school and our students additional information is enclosed. Thank you for your consideration and please consider exploring the possibilities.

The School of Television in Copenhagen
Information about the school:
The School of Television in Copenhagen is an initiative facilitated by a collaboration between educators and a broad range of institutions and media professionals within the Danish media production business.
The school is run by an association of education- and TV-professionals, joined in an effort to develop and provide education in the field of visual media production.
The School of Television is offering an experimental approach integrating New Media technology, TV-production methods and project management skills, to give students the tools needed to operate within modern media business. The school is built on a methodology of dynamic learning in which the student integrates three types of learning: School facilitated learning (classroom based or teaching in workshops/master classes by professionals), project related learning (student’s TV productions) and work place learning (internships in production and broadcast companies). The education is very intensive and demands a high degree of motivation and responsibility from the students, developing independence and cooperative skills. Other key concepts are flexibility, mobility, responsibility, independence, cross-disciplinary understanding, intermediary skills and international orientation.
The Multimedia education:
In collaboration with the business colleges of Koge and Holbek, The School of Television is developing the new national multimedia designer education. As television and the internet transform and converge into new interactive media, producers, production companies, broadcasters and tele-companies as well as non-media-companies are increasingly demanding new competences and skills from their employees, and thus new concepts, new programs and new ideas for the digital future from the education institutions. The School of Television aims at being a front runner in this field.
The multimedia education is a two year intensive undergraduate college education. The students receive a broad know how in theoretical and practical new media production, communication, visualization and project management. In the last semester the students works as interns in Denmark or abroad for approx. two months before writing their theses.
with your attention you support experimental new media projects.
