The Interns of Autumn / Winter 2017

At Lensmen we love our interns, we really do. And we believe internships are vital for young people.
We’re so passionate about what we do, that we want to share it with as many people as possible. To have young people who are excited, willing to learn, and ready to expand their skills is all we could ever ask for. We’re a small team here, so our interns play a big part. They work alongside us learning and applying their skills to our team.
Right now we’ve got lots of great interns on staff, and we’d like to introduce some of them.
Our interns come from all over the world and from all different backgrounds. They offer such a fresh take on our work and breathe new air into the company. We’re always looking for more. Click here if you’re at all interested in joining us for an internship.

Sarah comes to us from Germany and Sweden. Currently, she’s focusing more on the photography side of things. Sarah’s been perfecting how to shoot her own photos and learning the ins and outs of Photoshop. She’s only been with us for a few weeks but will be with us until March. In such a short time she’s already made such good work. We look to have her more involved in marketing in the coming weeks. Time will only tell what other amazing work she does for us.

Rachel has grown up between Ireland and America and is currently living full time in Ireland. In her time doing film studies, Rachel has become very comfortable in the director’s chair. With us, she’s been trying a bit of everything else. She’s gone along on shoots, operated cameras and perfected her editing skills. Even though she’s leaving us very soon, we wanted to show off some of the incredible work she’s made for us.

Alannah was born and raised in Ireland. Like Sarah, she too is focusing on honing her photography and Photoshop skills. She’s with us only one day a week to gain practical working experience along with her studies. Alannah’s quite a fast learner and can adapt to anything we throw her way. For someone who’s with us so little, her skills have improved so much.

James, who originates from west Dublin, joined us in September. He’s been learning how to do some filming but mostly tightening up his editing skills. One of the biggest endeavors he’s embarked on was a series of 13 videos for Makeshift Ireland. Recently, he got his safe pass and has been going out on sights to work with the time-lapse cameras.  However, his most fun shoots have been the ones at Trinity College and Croke Park.

Aurora hails from Spain and will be with us a total of 7 months. She too is focusing on the video editing side of things. Having her around has been a great help to our food production team and she’s made videos for them like these. One of the other things she’s done for us is going round to various Dublin events and get some amazing shots. On top of all of that, she’s been accompanying on bigger shoots as well. We’re excited to see what else she does here.

And finally, there’s me. My name is Dillon. I’m currently going to school for journalism back home in the States, but I’m on my semester abroad. I’ve been here for three months spitting my time between going to school and working at Lensmen. I manage their social media as well as a few other areas of online marketing. Chances are if you’ve read something from Lensmen in the last three months, I wrote it. I have absolutely loved my time here at Lensmen, and I will be very sad to leave.
