About the internship

Ohio HD is comprised of a high-energy team of professionals who produce work at the highest level of our production community. For us, production isn’t a hobby; we’re passionate about creating beautiful, highly relevant projects with meaningful impact for our clients.

This internship position is special in that it’s not limited to typical camera, audio, and lighting criteria. Other disciplines are highly encouraged, as Ohio HD is continuously evolving and growing in our service offerings. The internship aims to provide a good baseline of what corporate and commercial production is all about, but also dive deeper into specific areas of interest for both the intern and Ohio HD. Part of the role will include job-shadowing various Ohio HD team members, but you will also be asked to take on projects, tasks, and responsibilities yourself.

Just about everything I know I attribute to Ohio HD. Amongst all the people who work here, they were patient enough to sit down and answer, with detail, and question I had. Now that I am developing my skills even further they are more than willing to maintain our relationship and enable my creativity. If you are thinking about using them as a resource, you shouldn't think about it much longer, and you should just do it.

"Ohio HD afforded me an understanding of production equipment, lighting setups, and cameras at an industry level. Through working with their equipment rentals, I received first-hand experience handling high-end production cameras, including RED, ARRI and Phantom systems. I was also able to learn the industry set-terms and lingo for G&E, as well as more specific information on 3-phase power and rigging safety on set. The team at Ohio HD is knowledgeable in all fields from business operations, management, to audio/video/VR and Post-Production services and they shaped my internship to meet my learning objectives. Ohio HD gave me a production backbone that has afforded me job opportunities both on-set and in post-production."

"I look back at my time as an intern for Ohio HD as the most beneficial experience I could have had as student of video/media production. Throughout my summer there, I had the opportunity to practice with their vast collection of industry standard equipment that I never would have had access to in school. My fellow interns and I worked on many different assignments together. We grew very close as a group and remain in contact to this day. Some of our tasks could have been: filming original videos, researching different pieces of equipment, studio upkeep, entering film contests and even going on professional shoots. The Ohio HD staff are all working professionals in this field who acted as mentors to the interns. They were very eager to see us succeed and more than willing to help us through any obstacles we faced. By the end of our time there, the interns all agreed that we wish we could have stayed even longer.

I would summarize being an Ohio HD intern as having 4 years’ worth of college experience in one summer. The more I put into my time there, the more I got out of it. I genuinely recommend applying as an intern to anyone considering a career in the production/entertainment field."

“Having the opportunity to intern at Ohio HD has been an absolute dream. My knowledge in the world of film has grown more than I could’ve ever imagined in just a couple months. Not only have my skills technically grown from the available equipment we are able to “play” with, but we also have opportunities to be on professional sets that teach way more about the film industry than any classroom can. Ohio HD has done an amazing job in creating a welcoming environment of learning and the fact that the staff is so willing to share their wisdom among many aspects in life, really showed me what it takes to become someone who can do anything they put their mind to.”

"My time at Ohio HD Video was one of the most valuable academic and professional opportunities I've ever had. Their internship program helped solidify my passion for cinematography and granted me a strong foundation that I still draw from today. I am incredibly grateful for the time, effort, and knowledge the Ohio HD team has invested into young filmmakers like myself.
The Ohio HD internship program offered me the knowledge and experience to succeed within the film production industry. Through this internship, I gained my first in-person exposure to the professional film world; from set etiquette and production roles to cinema cameras and focus-pulling, Ohio HD provided practical field knowledge that traditional classroom education couldn't provide.
Though my internship ended in 2018, my experience at Ohio HD continues to be a valuable asset to my career as a filmmaker. The team at Ohio HD allowed me to embrace my interest in the camera department by offering me the chance to observe and perform several production roles, including 1st AC, 2nd AC, and PA. These opportunities prepared me to crew on future commercial productions while advancing the quality of my work.
From day one, the Ohio HD team was welcoming and willing to share their knowledge; My experience as an intern at Ohio HD is one I wish every film student could have. If you are a student who is passionate about filmmaking, willing to learn, and hard-working, I cannot recommend this opportunity enough."

Hi! I am Cidney! I interned at Ohio HD during the summer of 2021! I am so grateful for the opportunity because I was able to gain video production experience that I never would have been able to get at school. I believe the best way to learn anything is to get hands-on experience. You definitely will have the chance to do that when you intern at Ohio HD. Whether that is “playing” with equipment, editing a video or being on set. Don’t worry about your experience level, because everyone is so willing to answer your questions and help you when you are struggling.

Joining the OhioHD internship program was one of the best academic/career decisions I've ever made.  For me, simply being around the tools that they have and the knowledge of the people that work there possess was worth its weight in gold. Getting a chance to explore and get hands-on experience with professional-level gear that I would be using in the field was also super helpful. The gear I had access to at school was limited, so getting to see what the pros are using really helped me understand what I would eventually be dealing with. On top of that, I got to get onto professional level sets while I was an intern. I feel like getting to get my feet wet being a PA under OhioHD prepared me for future shoots I would be a part of. Personally, getting to see the workflow and how focused everyone is on a professional set was something that my schooling just couldn't offer. I would certainly push anyone student that would like to get a glimpse into what the real industry is like to apply for the internship.

"They say you need to go to college… This is false, you just need to intern at Ohio HD.  If you really want to understand the nitty gritty of the media industry you come here.  I have learned so much from everyone here that has given me the knowledge and confidence to become successful.  From hands-on experience with cameras, lighting, grip, and even professional commercial sets, the opportunities here are truly endless .  You will grow so much and leave this internship with a gigantic batch of new found skills, knowledge, and experience to help you take on the industry with confidence.  If you put in the effort, this internship is 4 years of college wrapped up into 3 months.  I highly recommend applying, you won’t regret it."

2022....It's gonna be great!
