Apply to Become a DIS Student Videographer

We are looking for students to work with the DIS Marketing & Communications Department to continue our video storytelling tradition! Each semester DIS Student Videographers collaborate with our team to build video content about their semester abroad. 

What Do DIS Student Videographers Do?

Why Should You Apply?

  • You’ll build your skill set and portfolio abroad, and your videos will be used in DIS website, advertising, and social media
  • Your time spent with the Marketing & Communications Department can be noted as a non-credit ambassadorship on your future resume, and at the end of the semester, you can request a letter of recommendation or LinkedIn recommendation to build your resume

  • We’ll invite you to various events where as a group, you will share your videos and get feedback both from a marketing and videography perspective
  • We host workshops, professional development opportunities, and social events throughout the semester
  • At the end of the semester, you will be invited to a special thank you event (in-person or virtual), to celebrate the semester and to thank you for all that you’ve contributed

What Are We Looking For?

  • You have previous experience in creative short visual storytelling
  • You are a collaborative team member and are open to feedback
  • Good time management and organization skills, as you will be expected to complete the video assignment alongside your academic and social commitments
