You may remember that the internet went into meltdown last month when Star Trek put a call out for extras in Dubai. If you weren’t lucky enough to get a call back (we’re not bitter, promise), don’t worry; you’ve got another chance to play an even bigger role in the movie (not Luke).
Dubai Film & TV Commission has announced that they are on the hunt for eager interns to get on board, grab a camera and start filming. Successful candidates will get the opportunity to work on everything from film pre-production to hair and make-up, set construction and even do a little bit of directing.
“We are delighted to be able to offer this exciting opportunity to aspiring filmmakers, who will have the chance to gain international exposure, learn about new aspects of the film industry and earn valuable on-set experience.’
Jamal Al Sharif, Chairman of Dubai Film and TV Commission
Candidates must meet the following criteria:
- You must have legal authorisation to reside in the UAE for the duration of the internship
- A degree (or working towards one) in film
- Computer skills
- Excellent communication in both English and Arabic (preferred)
- A love of film
- Willing to work long, unsociable hours
If this sounds like your dream job, you can apply by sending a CV and cover letter – explaining your core strengths and what you can bring to the project – to email@example.com.
But you’ll have to hurry, the deadline for applications is September 3rd. That’s tomorrow, by the way.
