The deadline for applications for spring interns at Freihofer Casting is December 1, 2019. Interviews will then be scheduled ASAP.
Oklahoma’s leading casting office for film and television accepts submissions for interns to work in the office three times per year, corresponding with college semesters: January- May, May-August and August-December.
Spring interns begin in mid-January and go until mid-May.
The interns will assist in the auditions and casting for actors and extras for commercials, feature films, television and more. The majority of the work will be performed in Norman, OK.
Up to 5 interns will be hired for the spring
Those applying must have their own transportation, good computer skills and excellent telephone and people skills. They must be friendly, outgoing, self-motivated and well organized. Ideal candidates for the Internship Program are current college students, or recent college graduates, though anyone over the age of 18 with their own transportation may apply. A theatre background or TV/Film background is preferred.
Interns get a feel for the fast pace of the casting world, get to know agents on the phone, learn to schedule and confirm casting schedules, greet actors, do a little crowd control every now and then and get a chance to see what goes on behind the doors during a Television, Film, or Commercial audition itself.
In the past months, Freihofer Casting interns have been in the casting rooms and on set for the films STILLWATER, THIRTEEN MINUTES, SICK GIRL, MINARI (produced by A24 and Plan B), BREAKING THEM UP, BODY BROKERS and more. Past interns have worked with filmmakers Francis Ford Coppola, Terrence Malick, William H. Macy, Andrea Arnold, Nick Searcy, Paul Dano and more.
Spring interns will be working on at least two undisclosed films.
“The best acting class, the best production class, is serving as an intern in a casting office,” said Freihofer. “You learn so much about the audition, casting and business side of the acting industry; it really is a crash course.”
There is no pay for the internship, but colleges and universities offer credit for the service. Applicants must receive college credit for the internship.
Freihofer stressed the educational opportunities are unparalleled. Former Freihofer Casting interns work professionally in the industry all over the country, both behind and in front of the camera. Former interns work for Warner Brothers, MGM, Disney, MTV, Nickelodeon and production companies ad casting offices in Los Angeles, New York, Austin, Chicago and more.
