Hi all, I'm looking for a summer internship or something that will get me working and I was suggested to intern at Panavision, but I'm not sure how exactly I'd go about that, or if its the place for me. I was just curious if anyone has had any experience interning at any of the Panavision sites (mine specifically would be in Woodland Hills CA) or any helpful tips. I put this in the cinematography section being i would hope that some of you guys had started out where I am and I thought it would be most useful here!

I'm interning at Woodland Hills at the moment. Most internships seem to be in shipping and handling, which is a great place to get your hands on equipment. I work in technical marketing, but I'm not sure whether they will be taking interns in the summer.
You should talk to Ryan O'Hara (who might be responding to this as we speak), as he worked in shipping and handling at Woodland Hills.
It is definitely worth pursuing. The access to the equipment and, more importantly, getting to know the people who work with the equipment is priceless.

haha well "shipping" and working with the gear is kinda what my dad told me to expect, but I was perfectly fine with that and actually thought it would be pretty cool. Is there a number or anything i can call to see if they still do the internship program (I'm sixteen not sure if you have to be 18) Or is it just the general number from the site you think? Thanks again for your help

Oh! Yeah, might be a few years before you can get in with that.
Focus on shooting right now and (as I'm sure you have) get familiar with how a camera works beyond composition.
It seems like you're already ahead of the game in terms of knowing where you want to go. Now it's just a waiting game until you can pursue more opportunities like that...

Alright I guess in the mean time I'll just try to look for a camera shop that needs some extra help and keep on shootin, thanks for all your guys help!
