Meet Our Intern Madison! "As an intern at esd I was welcomed with my first real office work environment. I was able to use what I have learned in my courses at school and put them into real world projects. Networking, filming and editing for our big name clients has really helped me fill out my film reel and resume. Using new equipment and software outside the classroom has been a real perk of this internship. I have been taken in by all parts of the esd team, helping across all departments for projects, and learning things from everyone and their jobs at esd. Gaining as much knowledge and more skills to make me more well versed in my field. After college, I am looking forward to working on more video productions for film in Austin and making a name for myself as a director."
