Boom Box Post Internship Program
Boom Box Post is proud to provide an internship program for aspiring sound editors, designers, and mixers. Throughout the course of their internship, interns will gain valuable industry experience as well as a window into Boom Box Post's internal creative processes. Each internship experience is four months in duration and occurs seasonally starting on January 1st (winter), May 1st (summer), or September 1st (fall).
Internship interviews must be conducted in-person for all Los Angeles area applicants. Applicants from outside the greater Los Angeles area may request an interview via Google Hangouts. However, as interviews are conducted approximately two weeks before the start of the session, long distance applicants must have the ability to move to Los Angeles within a very short timeframe should they be accepted to the program.
