Internships

 

"My intern experience really meant a lot to me. I got to learn, take on challenges, all while being around film. I definitely still miss that feeling. I hope all is well with you and your current interns. I have been seeing films on Netflix and Amazon Prime that I would not have heard of if I had not worked for Silk Screen."
