I started an internship in LA at a movie marketing company called The Ant Farm (www.theantfarm.net). They make movie trailers, posters, and theatrical standees. It was a very good experience to see the LA landmarks, city, and culture and to see behind the scenes of major-release motion picture work.
Even though I don’t think LA is the right place for me right now, it was great to see the city first hand for an extended period of time, and working for the company was a great time.
Anyone reading this who’s interested in interning, try not to limit yourself to where you go. All you have to do is have a position in mind and go after it yourself.
