The Age of Interns

"I See You Moving" Web Series

We're FINISHED!

On June 20th Bokeh FX roadtripped to Wilmore, KY for the Ichthus Festival to film Transform DJ's as they dropped their new track "I See You Moving". Bokeh FX captured the highlights of the DJ's experience and posted it to their youtube channel every day in this Web Series. We had a blast working with the DJ's again and rockin Ichthus 2012!

All 4 Episodes of the "I See You Moving" Web Series are in the can and can be viewed bellow! Our personal favorites are Episodes 2 & 4. Tell us which ones you dig by commenting bellow:

Fun Factoid for those who've watched all four: If you payed attention, you may have noticed the similarity between every Episodes music. Every song used for this Web Series were remixes of the DJ's new track "I See You Moving". You can download this track for free from their website, transformdjs.com and check out the various other remixes. 

Interns Needed for Summer

This past week I interviewed a couple applicants for the internship positions and am excited to see the team grow! People with real talent are approaching us for these positions and that's super exciting! However, one thing I've learned through this process is that we won't ever compromise talent for character. We could hire the most talented, over qualified interns out there and still implode this summer if we don't hire interns with good, strong, healthy morals!

The hardest part is, how do you measure someone's morals in a one hour interview? Even two or three hours with the person, and you've only got a snap shot of who they are! There is an extent of grace one has to extend in an interview... you don't know what you're getting till three months down the road. 

All that said, we desire to be known as a company moved by our ethics, a moral standard that says, "No, we won't go film that booby tassle show!" haha, inside joke... sorry. We LOVE creativity, beauty, a good party and being "in the world" but won't be known for being "of the world"! I assure you of that!

We're still accepting applications for internships. So, please, feel free to forward this Blog post onto anyone you feel might be a good fit. We're looking for a few individuals still: Public Relations Intern, Business Savy Intern, Journalist/Internal Editing Intern, Web Management Intern, Production Intern

Timely Quote

Blake Mycoskie is the founder of the hipster shoe company, Toms and in his book "Start Something That Matters" he reflects on the fears he felt when starting Toms, and these words couldn't have been more timely:

 

"I found some effective ways to live with the fear until I could overcome it. First, I remembered to live my story. I went back to my core question: Why am I doing this? When you go back to your core motivations, you affirm the authenticity of your project, which takes away one of the biggest fears: that you are a fraud. When you live your story, you don't have to pretend you're someone you're not. You can just be yourself. It's been said that there's nothing more dangerous than someone who has nothing to lose -- and it's true in business too. When you are living your story, it means your actions and your mission are the same, which eliminates any room for shame or disappointment, the two emotions that underlie our greatest fears. That's when you have nothing to lose." - Blake Mycoskie

Now, I don't know if those word will mean nearly as much to you as they have to me... 

I'm not one to believe in coincidences... and I literally fell onto this quote about twenty minutes ago... and MAN did I need it! Going back to my core motivation... I'm starting this production company and hiring interns because I want to make a difference through my talents, and I can't do that on my own! Especially in this industry!!!

The funny part is, it sounds like Blake was going through the exact same thing I am at that moment because his next words are "I also made sure to surround myself with interns." And when I read this book the first time I put a BIG circle around that last word and wrote, "Could I bring on interns?"
