Crew West, located in North Phoenix, has been in business for nearly twenty years. We are a television crewing company that provides crews for national television broadcasts. When ’60 Minutes’ or ‘Dateline’ has something to shoot in Arizona, they call Crew West. We have ten staff employees. There are two videographers, two audio technicians, two satellite truck engineers, and four people that work in the office. Crew West is the busiest crewing company in Arizona. In a business based on freelance work, we stay consistently busy. As an intern at Crew West you would be instantly immersed in the national news and sports broadcast arena. You would be working with the best correspondents, producers, videographers, and audio technicians in the business. On every shoot there is need for a helping hand. The experience in journalism and production that an intern will gain in an internship with Crew West would be profound. Furthermore, the quality of that experience is incomparable. A resume’ that can boast of production experience would surely stand out. Today, for example, a typical reporter position at a local news station requires the applicant to have experience operating a camera. Our client list is extensive. It includes NBC, CBS, ABC, ESPN, NBA TV, NFL Network, and hundreds more. If there is a big shoot in Arizona chances are Crew West is involved. Recently, during the election, Crew West had several crews working at John McCain headquarters in Phoenix. Our clients that night were NBC, Al Jazeera, Reuters, Bloomberg TV, the BBC, PBL Sat, and Comedy Central. We provided live stand ups that were seen across the world. We also worked with producers the week before on stories leading up to election night. The night before Crew West was involved in a three camera interview with Senator McCain for ABC, CBS, and Telemundo. An intern can learn MORE than the basics of all facets of video production. They would be working with our crews and producers and talent from all over the country. They can also learn the basics of satellite uplinks as we have our own trucks as well as a studio that we do tape feeds from. When they left Crew West, they would be prepared for many different types of positions in the video production industry.

Mother Jones Ben Bagdikian Fellowship
Mother Jones is currently accepting applications for its prestigious Ben Bagdikian Fellowship Program, located in San Francisco and Washington, DC. This is a full-time opportunity, starting in December and lasting six months, with the possibility of an additional six-month extension.

Tracking the connections between Russia and the Trump administration. Sifting through public records and massive datasets. Reporting on private prisons from the inside. Mother Jones is breaking news and creating first-rate investigative journalism for over 14 million readers a month. Behind that award-winning journalism—and sometimes in front of it—are the journalists-in training who are deep in the trenches, making our reporting honest, meticulous, and bulletproof.

Mother Jones fellows dig deep into our investigations as fact-checkers, soak up research chops and digital skills, and learn how a nonprofit news business hums. They comb archives and spreadsheets while immersed full time in our collaborative projects. Mother Jones is better for it, and at the end of a six-month or yearlong intensive stint, MoJo fellows are armed with all the tools of the journalism trade—tools they’ve gotten paid to learn.

Fellows work closely with top-notch editors, penning pieces about a transgender inmate risking everything to protest mistreatment in jail; digging into Black Lives Matter’s influence on candidates for elected office; illuminating sexual harassment allegations at the EPA; and chronicling the aftermath of Trump’s move to end DACA.

Applications for our December 2017 start-date are due October 1. Mother Jones believes that a diverse newsroom strengthens the quality of our workplace and reporting. We strongly encourage people from all backgrounds to apply. To learn more about the fellowship position, pay, and how to apply, visit our fellowship page at MotherJones.com.

Football Writing Stringers- Paid
The Casa Grande Dispatch is looking for at least one stringer who can cover high school football in Pinal County this fall. Most likely, the beat would involve covering Combs High School (San Tan Valley) or Apache Junction.

For each of the home games they cover, which will be in Pinal County, we can offer $65 for a story and photo, in order to cover some of the expense for driving distance. For the road games I assign, all of which will be in Maricopa County, we’ll stick with $50 because it won’t be a long drive. Road games for Combs and Apache Junction will include Chandler Seton Catholic, Scottsdale Coronado, Phoenix Washington, Tempe, Gilbert Higley and Phoenix Cortez. Let me know if this sounds like a fair arrangement.

Football Writing Stringers- Paid
The Casa Grande Dispatch is looking for at least one stringer who can cover high school football in Pinal County this fall. Most likely, the beat would involve covering Combs High School (San Tan Valley) or Apache Junction.

For each of the home games they cover, which will be in Pinal County, we can offer $65 for a story and photo, in order to cover some of the expense for driving distance. For the road games I assign, all of which will be in Maricopa County, we’ll stick with $50 because it won’t be a long drive. Road games for Combs and Apache Junction will include Chandler Seton Catholic, Scottsdale Coronado, Phoenix Washington, Tempe, Gilbert Higley and Phoenix Cortez. Let me know if this sounds like a fair arrangement.
