Final Thoughts

By Viveka Galindez

As my last day as an intern at JTWO , I believe one of the most important things that resonates to me is the ability of storytelling. Coming into this internship I believed I knew what storytelling was, but I actually had no clue. You can have beautiful footage, beautiful graphics, great cameras and gear. But if you don’t know who to tell that story, you have nothing.

Coming in I knew there was a lot for me to learn, such as specific terms for equipment, how to prepare for shoots and overall logistics on how the film industry works. I am leaving JTWO with new skills and knowledge , ready to take the next step in my career.

I produced my first ever short film “Sweet Home Alabama” with the help of Chris , Jordan Saba and the rest of the JTWO team. It was an amazing experience, from start to finish. Here I really understood the importance of storytelling. This story was so important to me, and the way I told It would shape the entire film.

Going on shoots for JTWO also was a great experience to dive in to real client work and see the logistics of a shoot. It was awesome to see a product come to life, from start to finish.

I leave JTWO super proud of everything I have accomplished, and would recommend this program to filmmakers, non filmmakers or honestly anyone who wants to dive in the world of film. As a graphic designer myself, the program was understandable, challenging but doable. The team was always willing to help out and give me an extra hand.

Thank you JTWO for this amazing opportunity, I go back to DC with knew skills, new friendships and a great short film!

This project was created as part of the JTWO [INC]ubator Project. A semester long internship program built from the ground up to give young filmmakers, content creators, and all around hungry for a challenge individuals a place to stretch their creative minds while preparing them for the road ahead.
