The idea of an Audiovisual Production internship is that senior students implement strategies in the commercial department with their technical skills, and at the same time obtain first-hand experience.
Mariel is one of the interns who has developed this role and has done a great job with her partner. I would like to know who is behind the scenes, so, I asked her a few questions…
How do you describe yourself?
I’m a super chilled and laid-back person. I like helping others and learning new things whenever I can. I’m kinda funny too, so that’s always a plus!
How do you enjoy your free time?
Currently, I’m really into doing digital drawings but I also enjoy binge-watching TV shows, cooking and travelling around the world.
Best series you have ever watched?
Oh, there’s quite a few actually! Definitely Orphan Black, I just re-watched it for the third time like a month ago, 10/10 would recommend. Other great ones are American Horror Story (Asylum and Coven), Euphoria and Pose.
Mountain or the beach?
Mountain 100%, hot weather isn’t my thing.
Do you practice any sports (adventure, extreme, endurance)?
Currently I don’t, but I really liked swimming back in the day.
What kind of music do you like?
Honestly, all kinds, but my go-to is pop for sure. My favorite artists just to name a few are Halsey, Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, and Tove Lo.

What is the most exciting part of the Internship Program?
Definitely learning new skills, meeting new people and getting to experience what’s it like to work with real clients.
What are your goals for this year?
For this upcoming year, my main goal is to finish my thesis, graduate from college, and well, find a job haha.
I really enjoy reading about our team members, it is a way to keep them close, without necessarily working on the same tasks. I can’t wait to know more about this internship program members.
