Jasper Merrill - A production intern at atlantic pictures

Describe what your overall internship was like at Atlantic Pictures!

At Atlantic Pictures my tasks as a production intern include research projects, prop sourcing, script coverage, and general office assistant duties. Some days I get to be on sets across the city, meeting new people and learning hands-on skills.

In our open-concept office space, the interns at Atlantic Pictures sit at a long table with one other. Here we have access to the phones and are easily communicated to by our fellow staff.

What is your favorite part of this experience?

Being on set felt like the richest environment to learn in but I'd say that assisting the production coordinator on a project was the most impactful activity during my internship. I learned all about making the important documents needed for production.
