Seeking Post-Production Mentee
in Los Angeles, CA / Southern California
Documentary filmmaker Christen Hepuakoa Marquez is looking for an individual interested in filmmaking, media, or health issues in the Pacific Islander community for an intership / mentee position during the post-production and editing phase of her documentary film E Haku Inoa: To Weave A Name. For a synopsis of the film and more information about the project please visit:
Responsibilities of the mentee may include but are not limited to transcribing of interview footage, assistant editing tasks such as sub-clipping material, sitting in on the editing process, and making runs to post-production facilities.
The documentary is currently starting post-production and we are looking for someone to begin as soon as possible until post-production completes in February 2012.
We are able to provide school credit. We will also provide the mentee a stipend of $40 dollars per hour of transcribed footage, and $10 per hour for all other work. Time commitment is flexible depending on the availability of the mentee and the needs of the production.
Relevant experience in Film and TV and community work in the Pacific Islander community will be considered but is not necessary to qualify for the mentee position. The most important qualifications are passion and reliability. E Haku Inoa: To Weave A Name will be broadcasting on television in Hawaiʻi and possibly nation wide. So this film is a great opportunity to get a credit on a broadcast production. Preference will be given to individuals with Pacific Islander heritage.
If you are interested please send a short one or two paragraph statement of interest and a resume to or call (917) 428-4984
