The torchlight program internship is a very interesting one. We screen movies and then market to people that would most appreciate the movie through social medias like Facebook and Twitter. This internship has been a challenging one only because marketing and promotion are not really things that I am good, however I was trained on the best ways to market to audiences. This made it easier, and I enjoyed it. So I definitely gained some marketing skills. The most memorable part of this experience was screening the movies. There were so many different types of movies that we watched, from documentaries to science fiction. They were all very interesting and quite entertaining.
I would recommend this to other students because it is a fun way to learn marketing, and you get to see many different films if you are a film junkie. Another benefit of this internship is the experience of working with a real company promoting films that are actually seen on the big screen.
