  • Mentors:Interns have a mentor relationship with Dr. Ted Baehr, other Movieguide staff members and possible opportunities to create industry relationships. Interns meet with mentors in different fields to give them daily tasks. Dr. Ted Baehr outlines a recommended educational career path and student interns are encouraged to pursue college level classes.
  • Pay: Internships are unpaid and can count towards a college credit. Since the internship is part time, some interns do freelance work or get a part time job to assist with living cost.
