The Media Department serves as a communication hub for the organization, and whose chief goal is to ensure that messages are communicated clearly, effectively, and efficiently internally to leadership and laity, as well as externally to the community-at-large. The media used to transmit message include but are not limited to audio, video, digital content, print materials, the church web site, social media, and signage.
The audio intern will work under the leadership of the Media Director and Audio Technician, and in collaboration with the Video Technician and Video Intern. The goal of the internship is to provide the student with a bit of flexibility by outlining minimum requirements as well as options for additional development. The internship intended for students seeking academic credit; there will be no monetary compensation for the internship.
• EDITING: We have two worship services every Sunday, and there is a multi-track recording for each service (up to 24 tracks). The Audio intern will mix the audio and export to two formats: (1) a single contiguous WAV file to be forwarded to the Video personnel for synchronization with the captured video, and (2) an audio CD with a separate track for each movement of the worship service.
• ATTENDANCE: The Media Department has a monthly team meeting for which the intern would be required to attend.
• LIVE SOUND REINFORCEMENT: The intern is invited to attend our rehearsals and worship services if they wish to gain live sound experience. Our sanctuary is a medium-sized venue (seating about 750 people) and uses mainly digital equipment. The intern would have the opportunity to man the controls at the audio desk, providing reinforcement for a 4 or 5 piece band, gospel choir, and 6-member vocal ensemble.
The ideal intern will have:
• Proficiency with a professional DAW (i.e. Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, etc. GarageBand could work, but may not be the best choice for this project)
o We recommend that the intern have access to this software on their own, however we have a workstation at the church from which the intern can complete their editing.
o Internships are designed to teach (or at least they should be). We have no problem in providing on the job training, however our experience shows that some foundational knowledge of DAWs is necessary for success in this internship.
• The ability to meet deadlines
• A positive and professional attitude, as well as a willingness to learn.
