Hi Tim, Have you stopped the mentoring program for the foreseeable future? I'm in final year of my sound engineering degree, and for one assignment plan on creating small sound libraries, and having additional professional guidance would be fantastic. Thanks!

Hate to have hesitated so long to ask this question, but did I miss it or is a call for virtual interns (2010-11) yet to be posted?

I'll be advertising for new virtual intern/s in July and will go through similar process as last time so that it is fair for everyone....

Hello Tim, My name is Preston and I came across your a comment you had left on the Social Sound Design website regarding taking on virtual interns in July. After reading through the outline of what you expect from a possible candidate I had to jump on this opportunity as I believe I can fulfill your requirements. I have a love for film, but have had a very difficult time gaining experience. I completed a Post Grad program specifically in Audio Post Production at Fanshawe College. I currently work in a admin/technical role managing a audio facility and have just recently lined up my first indie feature project. I have access to Pro Tools LE & HD, and have a Zoom H4n. I am in the process of updating my online portfolio, so I hope have examples of my work available soon. I look forward to discussing this opportunity with you soon, please feel free to contact me at Thank you, Preston

Hi Tim, My names Che. I am relatively new to reading your blog. I've just come across this article and realise June 2010 is not too far away! So am writing to you in an early attempt at a 2010-11' virtual internship. I live in Auckland and have recently finished an Audio Engineering diploma at SAE. I've been on ACC for the past 4months as I broke my foot snowboarding. I think it's been the best blessing in disguise I've ever had as I have spent the last couple months reading/searching/practicing anything and everything related to sound post-production. And the more I learn the more I fall in love and feel like this is the start of my career (the first time i've ever felt this before). I have pro tools LE at home and have literally been looking at purchasing a Tascam DA-P1 in the near near future along with a shotgun mic and anything else that'l help me get started with my own field recordings. I contributed in shooting a short film at SAE where I had to then personally construct the entire soundtrack. I was part of a team who entered the V48Hours 2010' (my first) a couple weekends ago and I made a soundtrack for that too. I have met a local composer/sound designer (Andrew McDowall@Digicake) and he is willing for me to come and sit in on some of his sessions (work experience kind of thing). My goal is to initially gain work experience with as many different people in the sound for video world as possible before hopefully getting an intern/assistance position somewhere. A Virtual Internship with you would be like having another rock in the family. Like my mother, a rock is always there to be able to call on when I'm at a cross road. Pre thanks in reading my spiel.

Hi Tim, this is really exciting and probably once in a lifetime opportunity! I have some experience in film sound post and something like this would be beyond my dreams, but it looks like I'm too late... If there's any possibility whatsoever, please contact me on e-mail or Facebook. Thank you & take care!

That's very, very, very nice of you Tim ! I'm not in sound effect, but if I was, getting the chance to have you as a mentor would be a chance I would not want to miss. I hope this goes well, keep us posted !
