TOKYOPOP announces its 2010 Digital Media Production and Marketing Summer Internship!

ATTENTION ALL COLLEGE STUDENTS!! Looking for a unique and fun way to earn some internship credits and — maybe, just maybe — break into the anime/manga industry? The TOKYOPOP 2010 Digital Media Production and Marketing Summer Internship might just be your golden ticket! From May 28 through September 6 of this year, TOKYOPOP will be hitting the road and touring America, stopping at just about any place that’ll have them — anime/manga conventions, bookstores, libraries, parking lots, you name it — to promote their properties and characters. But this isn’t any old roadshow – this is a multimedia experience – and that’s where you come in! TOKYOPOP is looking for a few good fans to join them and help “create a viral grassroots experience the likes of which have never been seen before.”

Some of the things you’ll be doing include:

  • Working under the supervision and guidelines of a real-world production company to plan, shoot, edit, and upload video for a web-based “reality show”-styled grassroots marketing endeavor
  • Using social media tools to promote and market your videos, TOKYOPOP products, and the TOKYOPOP Tour
  • Hosting contests and events at conventions, bookstores, etc., nationwide
  • Assisting the Tour Managers to set-up, tear down, and troubleshoot all events
  • And more!

What qualifications do you need to have? You…

  • Must be a manga/anime/Japan enthusiast
  • Must be comfortable on camera and able to energize a crowd
  • Must be a skillful user of Facebook, Twitter, blogs, and YouTube
  • Must be able to plan, shoot, edit, and upload video
  • Must be available for most if not all of the Tour: May 22-September 7
  • Must like to travel
  • Must have lots and lots of energy!
  • Film or film marketing studies a plus
  • Japanese speakers a plus
  • Must receive course credit; this is an unpaid internship (travel expenses will be covered)
  • Must receive verifiable college credit for an internship; this internship is unpaid (travel expenses are covered)
  • Must enter into a TOKYOPOP Tour Internship agreement with TOKYOPOP

To apply:

  1. Become a member of the TOKYOPOP Tour Ning group and join the Intern Applicants Group
  2. Upload your resume and a writing sample as a blog post to your TOKYOPOP Tour profile
  3. Upload a video telling us why you’re the right person for the internship to your TOKYOPOP Tour profile. Show us your most positive attributes, the ones that you think will make you a great spokesperson for TOKYOPOP on the road. (Note: Both TOKYOPOP and Ning prohibit the use of profanity in your video. All other Ning terms of service apply.)
  4. Send and email to Tour@TOKYOPOP.com with the subject line “TOKYOPOP Tour Internship Application” confirming that you have submitted an application

Better hurry tho – deadline for application is this coming Wednesday, March 31! (Sorry for this last minute post. Somehow I missed this story until now.)
