You don’t give Amanda a project and hold her hand until she meets the objective. Amanda OWNS a project and achieves a better outcome than was initially intended.
As her direct supervisor, I’ve observed Amanda to be a resourceful and efficient team member with the capacity to juggle multiple film marketing projects at the same time under the pressure of our client demands. She exudes a dependable diligence in her approach and execution to complex film marketing activations that would prove an asset to your team’s success. She has proven to be a clear communicator both internally in a team setting, as well as externally in articulating our marketing activation ideas to third party organizations for promotional partnership initiatives with our studios’ films.She is a quick learner and has an aptitude for owning up to her mistakes while keeping her work quality consistent and accurate to the expectations of our client Walt Disney Pictures.
Amanda, frankly, was one of the best interns I have ever worked with. While we expected to have her here for only a month, she was doing such a nice job for us that we asked her to stay on for the summer. Smart. Anxious to take on new tasks. A solid writer and editor. A good team member. Happy to work the extra hours necessary to complete a task. Willing to learn about our industry. Maybe most impressive was how easily she fit into our team’s work rhythm and felt comfortable contributing her point-of-view during meetings and discussions. I’d hire Amanda back in a second.
Amanda was an amazing addition to the LAI Video team. She was always willing to assist on shoots (including setting up, capturing b-roll, and tearing down), as well as ingesting and editing footage - and always with a great attitude. Definitely one of the best interns I’ve ever worked with!
Amanda is incredibly bright and articulate. A great team player who is also able to work quickly and independently. She did a wide variety of work for AIA, including editing and proofing, social media, photography — basically anything we asked of her — and did it well. She was an enormous asset for our team, and we miss her. She’ll do well no matter what field she takes on when she leaves school. She would be a great addition to any company.
