Greenhill School alumna Kate Franklin has been selected for the prestigious Television Academy Foundation Fall Internship Program. She is one of just nine students chosen by Television Academy members from across the country for the 2023 fall program. The Foundation’s Fall Internship Program provides 13-week part-time paid internships at top Hollywood studios and production companies to college students nationwide.
Franklin, a senior at the University of Southern California (USC) majoring in film and television production, will be an editing intern this fall at Geiger Post, a post-production facility in Hollywood.
“It’s an amazing feeling to have my efforts and hard work recognized by such a prestigious and talented group of people,” said Franklin. “These are the people who have helped create the shows that I have grown up with, learned from and taken my inspiration from as I have continued to grow as an editor.
“When I was younger, I watched a lot of Monty Python’s Flying Circus, Jeopardy! and NCIS; and they really gave me the motivation to take some of my first film classes in middle school,” continued Franklin, who hails from Dallas, Texas. “I wanted to know what it was like to be someone who would make a show like the ones that kept me so captivated. Once I took my first film class, the rest was history.”
The Internship Program also provides professional development sessions and customized seminars covering personal brand-building and navigating the job market ahead for participating students. Interns also become lifelong members of the Foundation’s alumni family, giving them access to events and networking opportunities as they build their careers in the industry.
The Television Academy Foundation shapes the art of creating television by engaging and educating the next generation of television professionals providing essential resources that help them discover their voices, refine their skills and forge rewarding careers in every sector of the television industry. The Internship Program annually provides students from across the nation with hands-on work experience, mentorships and opportunities for accelerated career development in more than 30 industry disciplines.
