National Film and Television student, Zoltan Juhasz, is the only student from a UK institution to be selected for a prestigious mentorship programme from global tech company Intel.
NFTS Sound Design MA student, Zoltan, is one of just six interns from various production disciplines chosen to take part in the Intel Production Corps (IPC) mentorship programme for Intel Global Production Labs, the production arm of Intel’s in-house creative and production group, Agency Inside. The students were selected based on their achievements and a rigorous application process. The programme runs from June 13th to September 2nd 2016, and Zoltan joins two producers, another sound designer, a cinematographer and an editor from film schools around the world.
The institutions from which the students were selected, including the NFTS, partnered with Intel to found and design the programme, which oversees the development of consumer and B2B communications for video, broadcast, print, retail, and digital brand expressions across the globe. Participants will intensively hone their production skills while learning the structure and workflow of a traditional ad agency and global corporation. The IPC programme also comprises a robust curriculum, including roundtable discussions with leaders from multiple Intel departments, from Silicon Valley partners to industry leaders.
Lisa Effress, Executive Producer of Mentorship from Intel Global Production Labs says: “We are incredibly pleased to welcome Zoltan to our new mentorship program and to be partnering with many prestigious institutions, including the National Film and Television School. When we initiated the application process, we were looking for creative and motivated individuals with a passion for filmmaking and advertising, and Zoltan certainly demonstrated these qualities. This is an exciting opportunity for students to experience the responsibilities, challenges, and growth associated with the industry in a highly professional environment, and we look forward to seeing and hearing the results.”
Nik Powell, NFTS director says: “We are very proud of Zoltan and his achievements. In addition to being selected for the Intel mentorship programme, he has also just won the Dolby Award for Sound. We pride ourselves at the NFTS in robustly preparing our students to work in the industry and this programme run by one of the world’s biggest tech companies is a fantastic illustration of this in action.”
