Description

MashUp seeks a dynamic, proactive intern who is willing to dive into new experiences with an open mind. The intern should have a working knowledge of feminist ideologies and must have strong written and communication skills. The primary project for this internship is to support planning, production, premiere, and distribution of MashUp’s 2021 National Women’s Equality Day film.

General office administration and computer skills, including but not limited to proficiency in Google Suite and Dropbox is required. A general understanding of film production is preferred, though not required.  This position works approximately 40 hours per week from June 28 through September 3rd, totalling ten weeks of work. The premiere event will occur on or around National Women’s Equality Day, which is August 26, 2021.

Qualifications

Ideally, candidates who apply to MashUp’s Film Production Internship should be interested in gaining hands-on experience with conceptual, independent filmmaking. Undergraduates who are majoring in film or dance are encouraged to apply, for the company hopes to provide opportunities for these students to expand their skillsets, thereby creating future leaders in the arts and culture field. Candidates who have experience in pre-production roles or on set positions are encouraged to apply. 

Background

MashUp Contemporary Dance Company is dedicated to the movement of female bodies and feminist ideas. Prioritizing innovation, collaboration, and inclusion, MashUp uplifts female-identifying artists and builds community through contemporary dance.   Founded in 2010 by Victoria Brown and Sarah Rodenhouse, MashUp Contemporary Dance Company immediately challenged the traditional single choreographer non-profit model. Leading with the core values of empowerment, creativity, community, diversity, and innovation, the pair developed core programming that embodies the power of the feminist collective. All company programming aims to not only lift female-identifying voices, art forms, and styles, but also provide points of connection for the local community to engage with artmaking. MashUp utilizes dance as a way to investigate feminist ideologies - and - motivate young girls and women to be strong, confident, and articulate individuals.
