Spectrum Internship for Winter/Spring Session - Development, Crackle

Company Name:
Genesis Global Recruiting, Inc
Spectrum Internship for Winter/Spring Session - Development, Crackle-CUL00002715


Department Description:

The Development department for Crackle collects and reviews all incoming material in order to determine what shows will be made as Crackle Original productions. With the increased emphasis on originals as the prime candidates for lucrative ad sales and integrations, as opposed to the less money possible selling library content, the Development department is the key, first door entry for the productions that will keep the site and all its subsidiary platforms going. We meet regularly with producers, directors, agents, and talent to find the projects that fit our demo, brand, and business model, then we go through the materials they give us (video, scripts, show bibles, etc.) and decide which projects to move forward with. With a four person department, hundreds of projects to go through and an ambitious slate of 6-10 productions slotted in over the next year, the Development Intern is a vital part of the team; we need someone to be reading scripts constantly while the rest of us are in meetings or on set.

Proposed Project Profile:

The Development Intern will be responsible for handling all incoming materials, maintaining the Crackle Submissions Log, reading and reviewing scripts, and providing coverage on those projects for potential production. As described above, Development is the first point of contact for all the projects that will conceivably be the face of Crackle, and our Intern is Development's first point of contact. We need to know which scripts have potential to be Crackle Originals, and the Intern is the person who gives us the first opinion on that viability, saving us a lot of time that we don't have to spend going through scripts that aren't right for us.

Internship Learning Opportunities/Experience Profile:

The Development Intern will gain experience assisting and knowledge of how the content pipeline of a network is put together. This person will sit in on occasional pitch meetings, which are the very first part of the process, learning how we talk to the creators, what questions we ask and what we look for in an idea. The next step in the process is reviewing the material, whether it be script, treatment, outline or bible. Based on our input, the Intern will learn what we need and are looking for in the written material. We'll also occasionally involve the Intern on a Notes Call, in which we tell the writers how the script has to be adjusted to meet the needs of the show we want to make. The Intern will learn how to maintain the Submissions Log, which is our database for all the projects we see, a critical store of knowledge for our current slate and on into the future. Finally, the Intern will experience and learn the end result of actual productions, through visits to the set, calls and meetings with the producers, and involvement with the rollouts and premieres of all Crackle Originals. Overall, the Development Intern will learn Soup To Nuts in the TV Production world, from nascent idea to finished television show, experience as invaluable to him or her as their work is to us.


Desired Skills and Qualifications:

We need the Development Intern to be thorough, detail-oriented, and able to read and review a high volume of material. This person will be the initial gatekeeper for Crackle Originals, going through everything that comes in and weeding out the projects that aren't going to work, so the rest of the team can spend our time on the projects that do have a chance of making it into production. The Intern should have a good sense of story structure as well as plot building and character development, and should be able to recognize and convey those concepts clearly and concisely. We need the person hired to be personable and presentable, so his or her inclusion into meetings with outside creatives is possible, and also so our necessary interactions with internal departments also go smoothly. Overall, we need the Intern to have a hunger for story, a real desire to comb through good scripts and bad, to learn what we're looking for and what we need in order to make the Originals that will help Crackle be the network we want it to be.
