Jobs with Reel Stories
Intern/Mentor this Summer with Camp Reel Stories

A Producer will be responsible for facilitating their group discussions in their creative process, and helping them to stay on task and challenging them to communicate their ideas clearly.

This role is fun, high-energy, and completely integral to the success of the program!!!
