Summary of Internship

As an intern for Spatter Studios Entertainment, I picked up on the tasks that my mentor, Louis Elton, did. Any task he needed to complete, I would assist him in doing so. Such tasks included promotion and booking. Prior to jumping into the tasks, I was taught briefly how to compose an attractive promotional post and how to stay professional while being outgoing enough to maintain good relationships with any contacts we may have. We often used social media to retrieve information about and contact artists that have potential to be booked. We also experiment with audio equipment and its different kinds of gear to see what differences can be found between types of technology and techniques. With this experience so far, I have found a passion in audio engineering and management, which encourages me to pursue this industry as a career. I also have a chance at getting a part-time position at Spatter Studios Entertainment after the Senior Experience program is over.
