Online internships titles available for: Assistant Producer, Video Editor, Creative Writer, Production Assistant, Social Media Coordinator
Dates Needed: Ongoing
Muslim Network TV - Background
Muslim Network TV is a Satellite TV channel on Galaxy 19 covering the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Our programs can also be watched on MuslimNetwork.tv. We are already on Amazon TV, ROKU, and in a few days insha Allah, we will be on Apple TV and other platforms. So far we are producing eight hours of programming which is repeated three times in the 24-hour cycle.
Our team has 120 combined years of production experience. Our engineering team’s experience includes launching more than 30 television channels and digital media operations in the U.S. and abroad.
It is probably the only channel through which America can discover its Muslim neighbors. By bringing a variety of Muslim voices to the fore, this channel will fill in a gap in the national media landscape.
Sound Vision - Background
Muslim Network TV is owned and operated by Sound Vision, which is a 31-year-old not-for-profit 501 (C) 3 organization.
Sound Vision interns are important team members who learn and grow. Some have become managers and board members of Sound Vision. Others are serving at important positions in other media outlets and groups since we invest quality time in our interns’ development.
Sound Vision is the producer of Adam’s World, the Adam’s World Club and the Colors of Islam Club. We offer weekend Islamic school teachers training, Friday sermons, media training for Imams, spokesperson training, a free, 24-hour Crisis Text Line service. We have developed unique educational exhibits about the peace movement of Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, as well as the crisis in Kashmir. We have also led and continue to run several human rights campaigns of Justice For All, which is powered by Sound Vision.
Sound Vision is an intentionally diverse team. We thrive on diversity and would like that to be reflected in our team of interns. At this moment we have six interns working with us.
