My First Week at inMotion

My First Week at inMotion

 By Ruth Peter Okoro, inMotion Summer Student

I want to be a Film & TV director, and everyone that I meet in this profession tells me that a lack of experience will lower my chances. This is also true in many other fields – an individual can look great on paper, with the best academic records, but their work experience will differentiate them from the other people applying for the same job.

I decided to look for work with inMotion because I needed some experience before the start of my Film & TV Production Program this coming fall. Soon after sending my resume to Mr. Pat McGowan, the President of inMotion, I was accepted to come work this summer as an apprentice.

The first week at work, I tried all sorts of roles such as editing, writing a 30-second script for a TV spot, and shooting “on location” with the inMotion crew. The time I spent doing these jobs taught me countless skills that will be essential in building a great media career.

Team inMotion is creative, very passionate, and great at what they do. I’m so glad to be working with these creative minds and these top-of-the-line tools this summer. Above all, inMotion employees are social-media friendly! Working with them this past week gave me a better understanding of the talents needed to succeed in this industry.
