Set decorator intern
"Are you looking for a Design internship in Atlanta? Design internships are the best way to bridge the gap between going to school and landing great job. Internships can help provide valuable work experience by learning the ropes from more experienced professionals. At the end of your internship, you’ll have relevant experience to help you decide if starting your career in the field of your internship is the right choice for you. It also helps that 7 out of 10 internships result in a full time job offer, which means interning in Atlanta can also serve as the foundation to landing a full time job in that city after graduation.
Design summer internships in Atlanta are pretty common, but don't expect to be in charge at the end of your internship! Usually, you’ll have to work from the bottom up, but interns are much more likely to get a job offer from the employer they’re interning with. If you decide to intern at a smaller company, you’ll sacrifice the name prestige for other benefits, such as having an opportunity to see your projects go from start to finish. Simply gaining Design experience is essential in order to provide value and creativity to the team."
"A set decorator works in the entertainment field, creating background scenery for movies, plays, television shows and other artistic properties. Collaborating with production designers and directors, they use artwork, furnishings and other props to design rooms for television and movie productions. Set decorators can also work in museums, creating displays for artwork or artifacts.
In order to create the appropriate background, set decorators must read scripts and conduct research to inform their designs and make sure they are in the appropriate historical or geographical context. Set decorators are responsible for coordinating with other production specialists such as lighting coordinators and camera operators when considering set plans. They must track down the items needed for set construction and decoration while keeping within budget constraints. Set decorators work closely with directors to ensure proper location of props and furniture. With larger productions, set decorators can be in charge of hiring personnel to assist in set building."
