Assistant Editor Summer Internship (Chelsea, USA)

Company Overview
Grovo is an online education and training platform that helps businesses find and use cloud services in social media, productivity and online marketing. Grovo uses video as its primary means of instruction. Video lessons are engaging - they let a user see how things are done and hear detailed explanations. The videos are one- to two-minutes and can be paused or replayed, letting users learn at their own pace and increasing the likelihood of retaining new information. All of the courses are produced by our in-house production team.

We have garnered media coverage in the NY Times, CNET, PC World, and Good, among others. This past December, Grovo won the NY Vator Splash start-up competition.

Position Description
We're looking to expand our production team by two exceptionally talented Final Cut Pro video editing interns over the summer.

You will be responsible for screencapture of web sites and integrating this footage, voice overs, still images and animations into finished, high quality instructive products. (We have an in house animator, but any animation/After FX skills on your part are a serious plus).
