These seasonal, paid assignments provide meaningful and productive work that allows you to build on your experience and develop your skills further.

The SPT Talent Relations & Publicity handles the PR needs for both domestic and international production and distribution properties.

The intern will be exposed to a variety of tasks including Press clippings, table reads, press interviews, set visits, EPK/Promo shoots, talent tours, various events, gifting, marketing & PR brainstorming sessions, drafting log lines, attending international field office calls and more. The Talent Relations & Publicity is very collaborative, and the intern will have exposure to everything our team interacts with daily.
