This page is only for Lebanon Valley College Music Business and Audio Music Production intern reports.

The Internship Manual contains most of the information needed about the internship. It is available to both students and sponsors at: AMP/MBS Internship Manual

From the manual:
weekly reports

All interns must submit weekly brief report describing internship activities. Failure to file the reports will affect the final grade.
There are 2 methods of filing reports:

1. A publically viewed blog at
This is the preferred method of weekly reports. Remember that everybody, including your sponsor, clients, potential employers, parents, etc. can read these reports. The reports will remain on the blog after your internship.

2. Reports emailed directly to Professor Snyder. This method is used only if the sponsor prefers to not have the intern post public reports. Professor Snyder will contact the sponsor to determine the preference of weekly reports. 

Interns are instructed to never post confidential information. If you find information that you would like removed, I will do so as soon as you let me know. Email

  • Was taken to an install at a church one day this week. I was asked to solder panels and various XLR connections into the floor of the sanctuary to be used permanently in the building.

Funhaus Intern Report #11

Hours: 15

Last Week!

-Got to do a recap cut for one of their more popular video series. The hardest part of this is cutting down a 15 minute video to 20 seconds  while still maintaining a narrative

-So many photoshops, they loaded us up because they won't have interns for a while after this week

-The editors took the interns out to lunch!

Week 13-14 Springwood Productions

Week 13-14, 120 hours worked
This week Springwood Productions went on the Limitless Jeep Tour, where a group of Jeep Drivers and the film crew went off-roading at 5 parks over 7 days and around 4,000 miles. These days were long, and we filmed everything that we could from waking up to going to sleep, including the travel, rest stops, in-house footage, meal times, and of course, the off-roading. We're making a multi-episode docu-series for the Limitless Jeep Tour, so we needed all the footage we could get from three different videographers. I also served to take photos for the trip when I wasn't filming.  The trip involved me having to go to the hospital, but luckily it was only a coccyx contusion, so nothing was broken. We didn't sleep much, but we were afforded some extra time to sleep on the car ride. Overall, it was a great experience. Whether I was in the Jeeps while they were on the trails or outside filming them flooring it up a rocky mountainside, I kept it rolling and captured some cool footage on my camera and GoPro. I'm exhausted, but it was a great experience and I can't wait to see the final product this fall.

Hours Worked: 48 hours

  • Be Great Conference week

Forge Recording week 13

16 hours
Monday was a slow day, just a lot of cleaning and organizing things to keep busy. Wednesday I helped move a fallen tree with Robbie and the other intern. Did more cleaning and organizing. Fixed a microphone. The XLR jack on it had gotten pulled out of the mic and was missing the screw that holds it in. Through trial and error I found a good fix for that issue. If this ever happens to you, get some medical gloves, like the blue kind. I cut a ring off from one of the fingers and put it around the XLR connector for the microphone. That gives it enough friction so when you put the XLR connector back in the microphone it will stay there.

Cody Esposito, Architekt Music, Week 12

Hours: 1:00PM - 10:30PM (9.5 hours)

- Ran errands/basic housekeeping
- Sat in on mixing session

WJTL Week #13

Week #13
9.5 hours worked

This week was a lot of the same old types of projects. On Tuesday, I did my on air time and gave the weather as well as read some advertisement spots. I then wrote and recorded my weekly Events Promo for airing the following week. On Thursday, I got to run an errand for them and go to pick up grocery cards to be mailed to contest winners. They continued to be amazed with my speed and productivity, saying when I returned "back already???". After that, they asked me to update and reword my Mobile App promo so that it was something new for the listeners to hear. This made me feel good because it sounded like they would continue to use in the months to come, even after I am gone. I then continued with my regular weekly projects, such as stuffing envelopes and entering names from events into a database.

WJTL Week #12

Week #12
11.5 hours worked

This week was a long one at the station compared to the summer leading up to this point. I did a lot of my normal jobs (writing/recording an Events Promo, stuffing envelopes, being on the air, etc.), but I also did different things to fill out the extra time. On Tuesday, I got tasked with going to different online calendars, housed by different websites, and adding in upcoming fall/winter concerts that WJTL is sponsoring. On Thursday, I got to put my work gloves on and do some good old fashioned hard work. We weeded and mulched a small play area, in preparation for an upcoming kids event, and we weeded and mowed around a culvert, where it was really starting to get overgrown. While landscaping isn't what I came to WJTL to do, this taught me that everyday is a new day with fun and exciting surprises and you have to be a team player and be up to do any type of task that may need to be done for the good of the company.

Funhaus Intern Report #9

Hours: 24

This week at Funhaus:

-No Dude Soup this week, but the new season of Twits and Crits began filming so we put the set together for that this week. The main differences with the T&C set is the game table, which has a screen that needs to be programmed and cleaned, and you now have to feed the mic cables up through holes in the table. Also, there is a super fancy overhead camera that none of the interns are supposed to touch because it's really expensive.

-Another heavy Photoshop week, some specialty ones. Some for sponsors.

-Learned some really good after effects stuff this week.

Week 12 Springwood Productions

Late to the party but,
Week 12 or so?
Hours worked: 12
This week I got the chance to go to Pennsylvania and Wilmington with Springwood to shoot an EPK for Jamal Anthony. We filmed interviews with him and some of his friends, as well as clips from his live performance in Wilmington. I've also been gearing up to go on the Limitless Jeep Tour next week, which should be a good time - 14 states in 7 days. Just got an some more SD cards for the road and an SD to lightning reader so I can edit photos on my iPad on the road which I'll be able to post the next day, so that's really exciting. We also had a video conference call to discuss everything else going on with this trip, so we had everything squared away.
Also, haven't posted here yet because Evan Cowles is a dit and forgets that he's still technically a student. That being said, here's what I've emailed Professor Snyder thus far:

Week 1
-Was assigned various tasks which included a lot of research
-Researched snapchat trends and how businesses market using snapchat and instagram
-Found out how ads worked on instagram and how we are able to advertise using geotags, localized ads, etc.
-Became familiarized with different snapchat users and how they operate their stories - working to take the aspects about those users that I'm fond of and figure out how to begin applying it to springwood stories in the future
-Downloaded and began experimenting with typeorama - an app that ads text to visuals fairly easily.
-Found out how to make a gif
- Began finding different festivals and events to pitch Springwood to, and compiled them into a list - still working on adding to this list
- Began looking into other schools that have media programs that we could get into contact with for Jess to speak at - also still adding to this list
Cumulative hours worked: 9.5
Week 2:
-Continued to research what makes instagram/social media stories posts/stories effective
     -That included watching several YouTube videos and reading various articles and taking notes for future use
     -Did research on how to create an online network, or a "following" - people that are interested without being necessarily being able to be "clients"
-Fleshed out list of festivals to pitch springwood to
-made a list of schools to pitch springwood workshops to
Cumulative Hours Worked: Around 7 (?)

Week 3:
-Continued to brainstorm and come up with a list of themes to make prerecorded stories and videos for Springwood's social media - whether that be used independently (as in YouTube videos) or as shortened/cropped versions for stories.
-Did research on facebook videos as opposed to youtube - there's potential there
-Continued research as mentioned in previous two weeks
-Made a list of questions to ask Jess about for "Our Story" section of the website
-Made a list of questions to ask Jess about for her bio (will also have to get calls from other people in Springwood to create their bios as well)
-On Tuesday met up with Jess in Delaware to go over those story ideas, and to ask questions to build "Our Story" and her bio
-Wrote "our Story" section
Cumulative Hours Worked: Around 12

Week 4-10

Summer has been busy for me, so I'm gonna format it differently and just throw this all at you at one time, but in the time since my last update, here’s what I've done:
  • Went to Philadelphia Pride where I recorded video of pride parade and festival, ano interviewed people on the subject of pride
  • Went to NYC pride to record video in the same manner, with more side footage and interviews. Both of these were to create a video focusing on pride and 
  • Compiled the Philadelphia footage into a video to present to Jess, to be added to later with NYC shots. 
  • Went to Baltimore to get footage for creating more “produced” videos for Springwood’s instagram stories
  • Wrote A biography for Jess, Dan, and Jon for the new springwood website
  • Provided input and suggestions to help restructure the springwood website
  • Edited sections of text on the Springwood website so that it reads well, and also includes more positive marketing terminology
  • Finalized the “Our story” section for Springwood’s new website, which details Springwood’s inception and development.
  • Researched more on instagram tactics and other social media influencers, including the rise of Facebook video
  • Contacted a list of festivals and concerts about having Springwood record video for them, altering the email for each festival making sure it was fully customized. 
  • Made a list of schools to reach out to and drafted an email that I would be able to send to these schools, to send out soon.
  • Wrote an agreement for Jess detailing a project manager and Marketing creative director position.
  • In terms of learning stuff, I've learned more about setting camera levels that I didn't know needed to be set - like video frame speeds and shutter speeds (in regards to video). I've also learned how to use a glidecam after two weeks of fiddling and not doing it right, and did a lot of experimenting in Lightroom, trying different presets that I downloaded and creating my own - looking at other photographers and videographers and YouTube tutorials to apply it to what I do. Got a couple new lenses
  • In three weeks or so I’m going to be going on a 7 day trip through various states with the Limitless Jeep Tour, which we will be filming a series of videos for, so that should be exciting. 
All-in all probably about 70 hours between these weeks?? I really don't know, these hours are hard to track and I don't usually do strictly work for long  periods of time - it's usually multitasking unless I'm on-location. 

Week 11

This past week I took a short trip with Springwood up to Nazareth to record video for Small Town Titans while they were recording new songs in the studio. What was awesome about this experience was that I was able to get experience in filming video, but it was also an opportunity to be in a studio setting with one of the most accommodating men I've ever met - I got to ask him questions about how he was recording them and what sort of specs he was using, and he answered all my questions enthusiastically. He's a private teacher as well, so he had a very understanding and generous approach to how he shared information, and that made me enthusiastic to ask more questions and get to know more things. We were in there all day sunday and monday, and while I didn't want to bug him, I learned a lot from him and got to see a studio setting that wasn't LVC's for the first time, and that was amazing. On the "Work" side of it, we recorded video for about 6 new songs/covers for Small Town Titans, and we got some great footage (in my opinion). For six people all being in one tracking room recording music and video at the same time, it was pretty cluttered, but we made it work. We also recorded interviews with the band a s a whole, with a fan, and with each individual band member as part of Small Town Titan's EPK.
As for development, I learned some new camera gadgets and got a new lens, got a gopro and learned how to use that (though it decided to be problematic during the shoot).
As for overall hours, I mean, we kinda worked all day sunday and monday I personally have almost 100 GB of footage alone - so I'd say the total working hours were probably close to 20 hours.

WJTL Week #11

Week #11
8.5 hours worked

This week I did a lot of the same things that occur each week. I gave the weather on the radio, but got to be more active in that role. I also announced a contest that was coming up as well as read a liner advertisement. I restocked the guest refrigerator in the concert hall along with stuffing envelopes and entering names into the database. I continue to become effective with my time spent on my Events Promos. I have it down to about only an hour to write and record, edit, and master the entire project, which is much quicker than when I started. The "most exciting" part of my week when when I got to use the copier machine for the first time this summer and make copies of concert program inserts.

16 hours
Monday I came in and cleaned/ organized some things. Worked on updating the studio procedures manual. Later I went with Robbie and Sheldon to University of Penn's arboretum, we were providing a sound system for their Freshman welcome. It was an easy setup, they just needed some speakers in a few places and a board so they could play music. We also had a wireless mic setup for a speech as well. Wednesday I was just cleaning and helping out Sheldon with some tasks around the building such as changing light bulbs and hanging some frames on the wall.

AAV Intern Report (2.5 weeks: 104 hours)

Week 8: (July 10 - 14)
  • Week 8 was spent with a technician at CHOP, mostly on the main campus. The main project was the testing and implementation of AV upgrades to the hospital’s emergency command center, adding two 90” displays and some other equipment such as wireless “Mersive” pods allowing wireless display extension to the existing system installed by AAV. This also involved recalibrating the existing system to integrate the new hardware. Stops in a conference room at chop main to pull old code off a codec, and at the new Robertson Research Center to troubleshoot some problems with a divisible large conference room were made at a few points during the week as well.
Week 9: (July 17 - 21)
  • Week 9 was the beginning of my time with the engineering department. I sat in with engineers learning about the DSP files they construct for projects and how they approach it, drafters to see how they take a bill of materials and a scope and turn that into functional diagrams of the systems to be issued for fabrication and field implementation, an engineer that writes lisp code (CAD specific) for the department to automate some crazy things within their engineering and drafting processes, three sales engineers who take a proposal and scope from sales and build a system and estimate the cost of it based on the client's needs and budget, or just fine tune and review a bill of materials and scope already provided by the salesman in some cases, the list goes on and on. I sat in on a lot of meetings that covered everything from large project management to specialty design team meetings to meetings with teams creating brand new project solutions for the company. In short I learned a lot that week, and to summarize it all thoroughly would require a novella so I’ll leave it with that general description.
Week 10: (July 24 - 26)

  • Worked with our esteemed Scrummaster as he set up a Haivision media server to demo for a major client as a solution for a platform to manage and record simulations in a sim complex for employees in training. This was really really cool but is another thing where going deeper while still being clear would require a novella, so I’ll leave it there unless prompted for a more detailed explanation.
  • Short week, on vacation from Thursday through Monday.
Anderson Audio Week 9
Hours: 102.5
- We had some missed item in pulls for a couple of shows. This made us very on top of things for others pulls.

Forge Recording Week 10

16 hours.
Monday I spent cleaning out the storage closet and reorganizing all of the remote gear. Robbie wanted it to be easier to find things back there so I went through all the the boxes and cases and moved things where they belonged and relabeled everything. Wednesday I worked on going through all of their backup hard drives and writing down where everything is. Robbie wanted a list of what's on each hard drive so when clients from previous years ask for something he doesn't have to spend an hour searching through all the drives to find where they are. It was a very tedious task but it makes Robbie's life easier.

Week #10 WJTL

Week #10
8.5 hours

This week was a huge week for working on production material. I wrote, recorded, edited, and mastered an Events Promo to air throughout the following week, as I do every week, but also got the opportunity to edit and master a series of pre-recorded information spots brought to listeners by a local credit union. This project took me half of my time on Tuesday and then some more time on Thursday to really make a quality product and give the listeners the best listening experience possible. With the "cool" jobs you get to do during an internship, you always have a few "uncool" jobs and that was certainly the case this week. Along with the production stuff, I had to put together packages for contest winners as well as sort and count more excess T-shirts from a previous concert.

20 hours
Monday I spent cleaning the building. We had an open house on Tuesday with about 200 clients and engineers/producers who came throughout the evening. I got to meet some cool people and make connections, talked to people about their experiences and what they're doing in the Industry. A lot of musicians and engineers are leaning towards freelance work. Wednesday I cleaned up the building from after the open house, bounced some files to send to a client who finally paid his bill.
