For those of you who don’t keep up with me on Facebook or Twitter, you may be surprised and delighted to hear that the exciting internship I’ve secured is, in fact, on Season Three of The Guild.
Like many people, I discovered the show shortly after seeing Dr. Horrible and wondering just what else this lovely and talented Miss Felicia Day person has done. Despite not being a World of Warcraft player, I really enjoyed the characters and kept watching through Season Two. On a whim, once I got out here, I decided to use the contact form on the website and see if they had any internships available for Season Three. I thought the odds that they were going into production while I was here were slim, but hey, it wouldn’t hurt to ask, right?
Turns out they were indeed moving into production, and were very happy to talk with volunteers about being production assistants. One thing led to another, and I ended up being an intern with the lighting department!
I’ve been on set two days so far, and they’ve been very busy and tiring, but a lot of fun. I haven’t really interacted with the cast all that much (aside from constantly almost bumping into them carrying C-stands down narrow halls), but they have all been perfectly friendly. But no, I will not get Felicia’s number for you.
Obviously, I can’t tell you much about what we’ve been shooting, and I haven’t read the full script for this season, but the scenes I’ve seen shot have been very funny (I was actually grateful to have canker sores on my first day because I could bite them to keep from laughing), and from the story bits I’ve been able to piece together in my mind, I think it’s safe to say that this season is going to be pretty amazing.
Even though my duties mostly consist of relatively menial things like grabbing C-47s, guarding the front door, standing in for Zaboo, generally doing whatever I’m told, etc., it’s still very exciting to play a part in creating something I enjoy watching so much, and that so many others enjoy. I’m proud to be able to work on such a great show, and I can’t wait to see the completed season.
