Back in October 2010 when I embarked upon my 5 month Film/TV Internship in the heart of Paris, little did I know what lay in store for me; the people I’d meet, the experiences I’d have, the cultural and linguistic integration I’d encounter.
Now 5 months on, I can safely say this entire experience has been incredibly mesmerizing and unforgettable; one that I will treasure forever. I have had the opportunity to not only work in film production, behind and in front of the camera, but also in journalism (a sub-divide of the company), translating and writing articles for presentation to France’s mainstream television channels.
Everyone has been so welcoming and always at hand when I have needed something.
I have walked away from this experience having made lovely friends and great contacts, offering to provide me with any help I may need in the future. Not to mention, I really loved meeting the other Global Experiences interns, who have been so great to me during my time in France. Thank you guys!
Thank you Global Experiences for making it all possible.
