Documenting Press Freedom at Voice of America

By Dean’s Intern Wyatt Redd at VOA

For the past few months, I have worked as an intern in the Docs and Series Division at VOA. We have been producing a series on the issue of press freedom in Turkey. It has been a challenging and rewarding experience. I have done everything from stockpiling footage to use in the docu-series we are producing to helping with the script writing process.

It is a small team here, and the work is fast paced. The greatest part of the internship has been learning so much about the subject as I work on it and getting to take part in producing something that will likely have an important impact on people around the world.

After I finish the internship, I intend to stay on for a few months as a contractor to help see it through to the end. After that, I would love to pursue a career making documentary films. My time here has taught me a lot and been very rewarding.
