MFA Students Intern at Field Museum
Internships have become as important to students studying science and natural history filmmaking as they are to future physicians and attorneys. SNHF students intern with organizations throughout the United States and overseas. SNHF students intern with organizations throughout the United States and overseas. Currently, two MFAers are creating videos for the prestigious Field Museum in Chicago. Kate Webbink (a 2012 MFA graduate) and Cohort 9 member Jared Berent both began working at the Field this last summer. They produce videos about the many scientific activities that take place at the Field. Succeeding MFA graduate Federico Pardo (a 2011 graduate), Kate and Jared bring the work of the Field to the world through video. In August three SFP faculty members were in Chicago for the annual University Film and Video Association (UFVA) meeting. They visited Kate and Jared at the Field.
