How lucky we are that we have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to be ener­gized with new interns each school semes­ter and fol­low their jour­neys after they leave.  Our two cur­rent interns are live­ly, enthu­si­as­tic and so much fun. We’d like you to meet them:

interns summer 2016Alyssa (on left) is a recent grad­u­ate of Rose­mount High School and head­ed to the Uni­ver­si­ty of Texas at Austin next year to major in film. She aspires to be a Producer/Director. Alyssa pos­sess­es the cov­et­ed “orga­niz­ing gene” which is reflect­ed dai­ly in her con­sci­en­tious­ness, opti­mism and deci­sion-mak­ing. She is a make-things-hap­pen sort of gal!
Favorite doc­u­men­tary: Black­fish.
In her own words:  “There’s so much you can do with film, and so many ways you can inspire with it.”

Return­ing to the Uni­ver­si­ty of Mis­souri as a senior in the fall, Shan­non (on right) is major­ing in doc­u­men­tary jour­nal­ism. She hopes to one day write and direct films that Steven Spiel­berg only dreams about. Her per­sis­tence, curios­i­ty and will­ing­ness to take risks are evi­dence of her cre­ative mind. Her pos­i­tive out­look is for­tu­itous­ly con­ta­gious!
Favorite doc­u­men­taries: All This Pan­ic and Imposter.
In her own words:  “Media has the pow­er to not only bring peo­ple togeth­er, but also change the way they view the world.”
