Our winner of the 2022 George & Jane Wallace Summer Performing Arts Internship Award shared a peek at his summer experience interning with Jumpcut Media! 

"Many thanks to the Platt House for funding my internship experience at Jumpcut Media this past summer! Jumpcut is a film startup in San Francisco that creates new Intellectual Property via NFT collections and a traditional TV slate. Working as an Assistant to the Producer ofa TV Show in Development, the Wallace Award was immensely helpful in financially supporting my internship travel and research expenses. For all students pursuing an internship in a creative field and looking for financial assistance, apply to the Wallace Award in the Spring!"

Teju is the recipient of a $3000 stipend to fund his summer internship experience, which for past awardees has been used to cover transportation, wardrobe, or living expenses for paid and unpaid work in the performing arts and entertainment industries.

"During my internship, I assisted the executives on the traditional content slate of Jumpcut Media which involved television shows in development. I got to work as the producer's assistant on one of the shows and manage the relationship between the writers' team and our company as the producer. Additionally, our company was developing an AI-backed writing tool that can help buyers of narrative-driven NFTs to create characters and flesh out storylines using the tool. My internship also involved building this tool, which entailed studying existing AI-backed writing tools, and then designing the language that is required to feed into a language model to get out something that can emulate human storytelling.
