An Intern's Diary

Day 06                
An internship is an assortment of opportunities from starters to dessert served hot on the plate. Being an intern at Studio 33, I got this super cool opportunity to visit a corporate office. The Managing Director of the company wanted to record a message for the sales department of the company. So there we enter a crew of 6 members, through the large gates, and past the several security checks. After getting our bags scanned, and receiving our “visitor” Id cards, we were directed to the MD’s office building. Up on the first floor, it took approximately an hour, for the crew to set it up for the shoot. We had to make sure the lighting, sound, the angle, was perfect, the frame was appealing and making sure the flowers in the vase were fresh enough. Never knew so much of importance went into the angle in which the speaker’s chair was positioned in. When the MD entered, the room was prim and proper. All cameras ready, set to roll. I was asked to attach the micro phone to her dress. There were four other people in the room plus a security at her disposal. One of her secretaries stood there making a note of all that she spoke in front of the camera.

After the shoot was over, she sat down with Siddarth, talking about her ideas, her requirements from Studio 33 and the various other videos she wanted to shoot. She was interested in making short videos for the various departments of the company, for this particular company, is a client who enjoys both the animation and the live action videos from Studio 33.

Later, we had to pass through the several gates in the large green compound to get to our exit. It was heart-warming to see that the people in the campus were environmental friendly. They had a lot of greenery and there were battery vehicles to move around the campus.

I walked out of the gate with the rest of the crew, after a happy first experience inside a corporate office, a smile on the lip and saving the tag they gave for my bag as a souvenir. I may not be working in one of those offices, but it sure was a great experience to visit one. I think that is one of the advantages of being an intern at Studio 33!
