Content For The Win | Endowment Intern Laura-Ellen

By Laura-Ellen Adair

A picture of me testing out the new customizable camera this week.

In my first week of interning at SCETV, I’ve learned that flexibility is key. Your day can change in an instant whether it’s a meeting that gets pushed back or weather that moves your camera test indoors. My goal for the summer is to experience a little bit of everything. I work in content development here and so far I’ve been helping to lay the foundation for two new web series. I’ve researched, wrote preliminary scripts and reached out to restaurant owners to see if they would like to be featured on one of the shows we’re gearing up for.

Week 2 in Beaufort | Endowment Intern Eli

Staff preparing for By the River in the studio

After getting into the swing of things the first week, I felt more comfortable about what my jobs were and the importance of them, in terms of the whole production. Some of the jobs included starting up the graphics board inside the control room, adjusting props on-set for lighting, helping to put microphones on guests, and making sure the mics had new batteries after every two shows. My main job for production of By The River was operating camera one.

Welcome to the Big Leagues | Endowment Intern Sean

Senator Kamala Harris at a meet-and-greet in Greenville, SC

Hello, my name is Sean Scott and apparently,I'm supposed to be writing blog posts of my time here at SCETV this summer. With such a crazy first seven days, this message didn't get to me until now, so I have a little more to write about and catch up. I started right after Memorial Day and the first couple of days were all about learning my way around the building: tours, parking, radio studios, the Public Service Commission and my own office. I think by now I'm starting to figure out how to get places here (hopefully).

The Show Must Go On | Endowment Intern Sarah

A still shot from the Janice Marshall interview.

It’s hard to believe week two of my internship is already complete. Time seems to be flying by, so I must be having a great time. This week was a little different from my first week, because my supervisor, Ty, was in Nashville all week for a conference. But, like Queen says, the show must go on.
