Manhattan Edit Workshop and Leftfield Entertainment Group Create Intern Referral Program for Six Week Intensive Workshop

Manhattan Edit Workshop (MEWShop), the cutting-edge, authorized digital-training destination for post-production and content creators, announced today a new intern referral program created in conjunction with the Leftfield Entertainment group, the production powerhouse known for producing Pawn Stars and other hit television series. Upon completion of Manhattan Edit Workshop’s “Six Week Intensive Course,” students will be given the opportunity to apply for the paid editorial internship – via resumes and work samples – through which they will continue their editing training, working on Leftfield shows.

Today’s announcement was made by Josh Apter, owner of Manhattan Edit Workshop.

“This program gives our students a unique opportunity with an amazing company, just as they are graduating from our Six Week Course,” said Apter. “Not only will students get a first-hand look at a working production facility, they also will have the chance to apply for a real-world, paid position. Helping ‘six-week’ students prepare for a career in editing has always been vital to us; now, Leftfield’s partnership propels this even further to help students with that critical transition.”

Added Danielle DiStefano, vice president, post production, at Leftfield Entertainment, “We realize how important it is to gain both the required skills needed for a post career, and access to jobs in the real world. All of us at Leftfield are delighted to be part of an innovative program designed to bridge the gap between training and professional status. This partnership not only helps the MEWShop students, it’s also geared towards helping our current junior editorial staff move up by providing a steady pipeline of incoming talent to replace them as they promote out of their current positions.”

About MEWShop’s Six Week Intensive Course
The post-production industry is highly competitive, and knowing the industry standards – Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, After Effects and Avid Media Composer – is critical for success. MEWShop is the only school in the world to offer in one comprehensive, six-week course all of these editing applications, taught by certified instructors. No other program guarantees more time in the classroom or more working on one’s own machine. The Six Week Intensive Course takes students through each program as they work on various real-world projects to illustrate the distinct strengths and nuances of each NLE. MEWShop’s Six Week Intensive is also the only course of its kind that allows students to choose the footage they want to edit on the platform they prefer.
Beyond the creative and technical aspects of editing, a portion of the Six Week Intensive Course also is focused on how to secure a job once the class ends. Students will draft cover letters and resumes, which will be refined over the span of the class, and also discuss with instructors interview strategies and job applications, as well as how to appropriately set rates and find the right work for each graduate’s unique interests.
Our next course starts May 9, 2016!  See more about the course here.
