Then prior to YouTube submission or entry in a film competition, a public premier is convened to inform the final edit.

As Interns support film team operations, they also are responsible for teaching how the interplay of Fine Arts enhances quality film images. Moreover, Interns are charged with imparting respect and knowledge of diverse cultures and associated methods for artistic expression.
