As an intern for Parent Earth I had a variety of different responsibilities.  I worked closely with the Parent Earth film editor to learn the basics of the editing program, Final Cut Pro, in the beginning of the summer. With this knowledge I was able to assistant edit 3 videos.  I wrote blog entries for the Parent Earth website. I also worked on other aspects of their website, such as uploading videos and sending out the monthly newsletter. I also spent a large amount of my internship working on the production of an episode for the weekly news program “Need to Know” on PBS.  I was able to take part in the pre-production work and research, work on set during the shooting of the episode, and work on post-production as well.
