what to expect

Anything! If the studio is shooting a film during the summer, the intern might likely be on location. Back in Los Angeles, there are a hundred things to do to be supportive of Mr. Avnet's activities. Candidates for this internship will need to be flexible and prepared for anything. Applicants should have a long look at his IMDb entry and a DP article describing one of his visits to the Kelly Writers House.
