Green Mountain West
Summer 2012 Site Review
Position: TV/Film Development Intern
Student: Plan II Junior
This summer, I worked at Green Mountain West, Inc. in Los Angeles, California. Green Mountain West is a Production Company that was started and owned by Craig Ferguson, a late night talk show host. The company consists of three to four people: Rebecca Tucker, President and Partner, Craig Ferguson, Founder and Partner, and Samantha Shahi, Assistant. I was the fourth person this summer as an intern.
As an intern I: answered the telephone, was in charge of Rebecca’s calendar, booked flights from Los Angeles to Edinburgh, got coffee and lunch, read scripts and wrote coverage, filed expense reports and responded to emails and set up appointments. I generally worked from 9:00A to 6:00P and on some days until 7:30P. My day would start off by getting Rebecca and/or Craig coffee. Afterwards, I would check the voicemail and then check my emails. I would respond and/or set up appointments according to the day, and then would answer all telephone calls and direct them appropriately. For the rest of the day I would read all the scripts that were sent to the office and write script coverage. My day consisted of reading features and scripted television, as well as searching for any new ideas for unscripted and scripted television by constantly reading magazines, searching the web and finding new books.
