“EVERY MPI EVENT THAT I HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO PARTICIPATE IN IS LIFE-CHANGING.”

As a production house and talent incubator, the Moving Picture Institute supports filmmakers’ careers at every stage, including in their first Hollywood jobs.

Last month, our spring and summer Hollywood Career Launch Program cohorts joined us in Los Angeles for our second annual Intern Summit. These young filmmakers networked with industry leaders, practiced pitching producers, and learned what it takes to turn their internship experiences into successful careers in entertainment. 

This year’s guest speakers included esteemed animator Colin Brady (Toy Story, Hulk, The Hunger Games, E.T.), MPI filmmaker Claudia Murray (Gringa), MPI filmmaker Nicholas Tucker (Corrections), and several Hollywood Career Launch Program alumni. 

This summer, we placed interns with several notable host production companies, including Madison Wells Media (formerly OddLot Entertainment, known for films like Ender’s Game, Drive, The Way) and Millennium Media (with Tanner Mobley, a former MPI intern-turned-host).

Attendees and the public also enjoyed an MPI Originals shorts showcase, featuring Moving Violation, Gringa, and Corrections.
