History of our Internship Program

Years before we became a corporation, we had Interns.
We are actually trying to remember how and who was our first intern. They say, “The memory is the first to uhm…”

Prelude2Cinema launched its internship program and has had nearly a dozen individuals and students working on the production for “Out of Darkness”and assisting Studio Chief Alex P. Michaels with the business details of the Studio. Interns have come from Bowling Green University, Cleveland State University, Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C), Kenyon College, Wright State University, Avon Lake High School, and Beachwood High School.

One of the interns arranged for Kenyon College to pay for Alex to Speak at the College. Prelude2Cinema expects to continue its internship program during the Studio expansion and later bring aboard certain interns who perform well as company employees.

Certain Interns receive stipends, while Others volunteer their talents. Some interns receive High School or College Credit. Arrangements for credit must be pre-approved by the school. Most of our Interns have went on to employment in the movie or media industry.

Prelude2Cinema wishes to thank Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C) and the Northeast Ohio Council on Higher Education (“NOCHE”) and all the other Individuals and Organizations for help in our Internship Program. Most of all, we wish to Thank our Past, Current and Future Interns.

We look forward to expanding and continuing our Program.
