On your first day in L.A., the director of the L.A. Film Studies Center will tell you that most people who "make it" in Hollywood are insiders.  The good news it, now you are an insider!  As you daily trek to your internship, whether it's for a producer or a talent firm, you'll think about how cool it is to be part of an entertainment kingdom run by legendary names.  Even better, though, you are there as a representative of God's kingdom, and that kingdom has more influence than Miramax at Oscar time.

Internships are a way to bridge both "kingdoms."  The following is a sampling of the companies where previous LAFSC students have served as interns during their stay in Hollywood:
