Testimonials:

LMCTV was the first internship that allowed me true hands on experience. After interning with LMC I stayed on and volunteered, it was one of the only ways to keep learning and practicing post college.  -Intern 2005

It was a new experience. I was mostly PA’ing ( Production Assistant) for short films and movie projects, so I got to learn about long term projects like the talks shows booked in the studio. Also it was the first time I was put in charge of something. I created a PSA during my internship, it felt good. -Intern 2009

I loved the hands on experience LMCTV gave me. I didn’t have to get coffee, and everyone was helpful and nice. It gave me more experience in the field I want to be in.  -Intern 2017

It’s giving me a good sense of the real world. I have learned more here than anywhere else, I love it here at LMCTV! -Intern 2018
