The guy in the photo is Stephen Kalmakis. He’s a great guy and a funny dude too. He was also an intern with KML a few years ago–and he’d tell you that it was one of his favorite parts of being in San Francisco. KML needs more great folks like Stephen who want to lend a hand, get college credit, make connections in the art world of the Bay Area, and laugh a lot along the way. Do you have what it takes to intern with this rough and ready crew of jokers? Then keep reading below to find out more specifics…
We hire several interns every year to work several days a week for 3 straight months. If you’re interested in learning more about how a non-profit arts organization makes its way in the world today and if you dig what the Lobster does and want to join the cause maybe a KML internship is for you. Applications are now being accepted, so read on and then get in touch!
-2 days a week commitment
-Great organizational skills
-Interest in arts administration and production development
-A good sense of humor
What’s the internship all about?
We’re looking for someone interested in learning how to create, produce and promote independent theater and film. As a Killing My Lobster intern you’ll be working on numerous projects that make up our 2007/08 season. From marketing to audience development, from fundraising to recruiting submissions for our annual film festival you’ll always be busy (and we hope frequently entertained) at the Killing My Lobster HQ in SF’s Mission District.
So what am I actually going to be doing?
You’ll be coming to work at our office two full days a week and assisting KML producers with new productions and administrative tasks. From creating press kits to researching grant opportunities, from talking to TV stations to tracking down props and costumes for the upcoming show, from assisting with film shoots to selling Killing My Lobster t-shirts this internship covers a lot of ground.
