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 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.)
