Hello SolidLine Media enhusiasts, my name is Dylan and I am one of the new summer interns. I am 22 years old and currently finishing up my final classes at Columbia College this summer. It’s been a marathon, but I am crawling to the finish line and my parents (and their wallets) couldn’t be happier. I’m just wrapping up my second week here at SolidLine and can honestly say I have no complaints (yet, plenty of blogs to come…). It’s been a great experience thus far and I’m learning a lot and having fun in the process.

Having never had an internship before, I based my expectations coming from stories I had heard from others– telling of summers spent stocking fridges with yogurt and diet coke. Now, I enjoy yogurt as much as the next guy, but I wasn’t sure how honing my fridge-stocking skills would help me down the road. But after my first week here I realized my expectations couldn’t have been more wrong. Being an intern at SolidLine is like being a part of the team. Besides your typical intern tasks, which are to be expected, I was given pretty important jobs that made me feel like I was being utilized for more than running errands and doing busy work. I felt I could truly learn and benefit from my summer here.

One of the first shoots I was involved with was a promo for the Academy of General blogpic-300x222Dentistry. The concept was to show how great musicians stay sharp by praticing– and the same goes for dentists by furthering their education. So we had a group of musicians in the studio where we shot them playing their instruments to an original song they had wrote for the promo. I had the privilege of being able to shadow our resident DP, Ed, as well as have the distinct honor of siting just out of frame and taking the stand-up-base player’s bow. That pale leg, just below the camera, that’s me! I also got to shoot some behind the scenes footage for a video that will be on the SolidLine website. So as you can tell, some pretty exciting stuff has been happening around the SolidLine office recently– and I can’t wait to see what’s to come.
