Are you concerned about the current state of Latinos working in the film and television industries? Are you a Latina/o artist, actor, or cineaste looking to give back to your artistic and cultural community? Or are you a film student looking for credit and experience working in an entertainment and/or non-profit environment? If so, here is your chance to contribute to the success of the nation's premier Latino media arts organization.

The National Association of Latino Independent Producers, an organization committed to the advancement, development and funding of Latino Media Artists in all genres, seeks reliable and enthusiastic office and membership interns for the winter/spring of 2007.

Intern candidates should have excellent office skills, administrative experience as well as a strong interest in Film/Television and the Latino Community. Typical intern duties will include, but not be limited to: phone, database entry and administrative jobs; assisting the Membership Coordinator with new and renewal membership applications; general office tasks and community outreach. Knowledge of Spanish is helpful, but not required.

We are interested in candidates who will be available at least one or two full days a week, beginning in mid-January. The position will run through the spring or early summer. Our office is located in Santa Monica , a short walk from the coast and Third Street Promenade. This is an unpaid position. We offer course credit and a complimentary one year membership to NALIP. Due to proximity, students at UCLA, SMCC and Loyola Marymount are especially encouraged to apply.

This is a wonderful opportunity to work with a talented team, to familiarize yourself with the entertainment industry and gain valuable experience working with executives.

Please e-mail your resume to Daniel Eduvijes Carrera at membership@nalip.org as an attachment in either Word or PDF format, and please provide a brief cover e-mail explaining your interest in working with us.

As some of you may know, I am writing my dissertation on the San Antonio chapter of NALIP so that I can earn my Ph.D. There are so many exciting things that you guys are doing!

Currently, I am researching a chapter on how San Antonio as a city, and how history in general affects the types of films that you are making. I'd love to be able to include some of your thoughts on this issue.

If you have a project in any stage of production that you think might be an interesting case study for this chapter, or, would like to participate in this research, please contact me. I'll arrange an interview over the phone and/or even just some quick e-mail discussions/online questions.

Thanks for all of your help!
