The Smashcut Fellowship program places qualified applicants in paid three-month internships at productions companies of all sizes, TV writing rooms, digital media companies, on-set productions, and more.  You read that right:  paid.  We help you cover your living and travel expenses.


Our hosts are also committed to being mentors.  So while they may ask you to run through a brick wall on occasion, or merely pick up their lunch order, you will learn plenty about the business every single day on the job.


We offer a stipend of up to $5,000 to help you make ends meet while you are working hard to establish yourself.  And, we will help cover your travel costs (if necessary).


During the program, you will also receive additional mentoring from the Taliesin Nexus staff, and if scheduling permits, you will attend our Apollo Workshop, absolutely gratis (if you haven’t already).


You also may be required to make a short film or write a screenplay in your spare time under the supervision of the program administrators.


To recap, interns will receive:

–  Placement at a production company, a management company or agency, or even in a writing staff room
–  A stipend of up to $5,000 or school credit
–  Possible travel reimbursement
–  Mentoring
–  Automatic acceptance into the Apollo Film & TV Workshop




Each fellowship will last for 12 weeks, and applicants must be committed to living and working in the required city of the internship during that period (You don’t have to live there now; we might pay for your travel there, and back home after it’s over.).  We usually stagger our internships throughout the year, with some beginning in the spring, fall, and summer.


The perfect candidate for the program would be a recent film school graduate or someone with some writing or filmmaking experience and/or training, but not someone who has already enjoyed a substantial career (after all, this is an opportunity for those who haven’t had their real shot yet).  You must have completed at least one screenplay or short film/video that you will include with your application.


If you are a current student (and over 21), you can earn school credit for participating in an internship.


Applicants should be able to demonstrate the following:

–  a talent for, and knowledge of, filmmaking or screenwriting
–  a tenacious commitment to succeed in the entertainment business
–  the skill set to thrive in a production company environment
–  a passion for a free society


Note: If you can receive university credit for your internship, let us know in the “Referral, Other Notes” section of the application form.
