The newest installment of our intern series comes from HFF17 FringeTV Intern Rachael Garcia.


I have gleefully attended the Hollywood Fringe Festival over the past few years. I was drawn to its anything-goes spirit and supportive community. I’m a film production major so when I saw that Fringe TV was looking for an intern I thought it’d be the perfect opportunity to gain more hands on production experience, as well as contribute to and see the inner workings of an organization that supports local art.


All of the Fringe staff have been so supportive and welcoming. Working with Beaver, James and Stacy was always a fast-paced, fun, entertaining, and creative experience. I’ve learned more about lighting, green screening, comedic writing (and Star Trek) from this internship. I was always encouraged to ask questions to gain the most out of my experience. Working with Fringe TV allowed me to see wonderful productions and meet the masterminds behind them as well as see the goofier side of staff in front of the camera. Through this experience I’ve met an array of talented and kind individuals and attended fun events at Fringe Central. The internship was also a great way to network, as a filmmaker, with actors, directors, artists and supporters of the arts. It was a rewarding experience and I’ve been shown gratitude and guidance from staff the whole way through.
