We are grate­ful to have interns join us at Qui­et Island Films each school semes­ter. Interns bring great new ideas to our team and we enjoy hear­ing their adven­tures after they leave! This spring 2017 we are excit­ed to have two stu­dents from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Min­neso­ta. Wel­come Shay­na and KC!

Shay­na is a com­mu­ni­ca­tion stud­ies major with a video/media pro­duc­tion empha­sis and a psy­chol­o­gy minor. She plans to grad­u­ate this fall. Her dream is to pro­duce her own short doc­u­men­tary films. When she’s not learn­ing new tunes on her ukulele, she is pas­sion­ate about learn­ing skills relat­ed to edit­ing, mar­ket­ing and exter­nal rela­tions.

Her favorite films and doc­u­men­taries include: An Hon­est Liar, Hap­py, and the Wildest India series.

KC is a sopho­more pur­su­ing a dou­ble major in Stud­ies in Cin­e­ma & Media Cul­ture and The­atre Arts. Next semes­ter she will be going to Lon­don to study and be an intern in the British film indus­try. Her expec­ta­tions about QIF are “to learn about the process of cre­at­ing a doc­u­men­tary” and she “hopes to leave this intern­ship with a sol­id foun­da­tion in how to sup­port a film pro­duc­tion com­pa­ny from an office per­spec­tive”.

Her favorite film and doc­u­men­tary: The Eter­nal Sun­shine of the Spot­less Mind and Mak­ing a Mur­der­er.
