Our approach is one of continuous accompaniment and counseling, interns and trainees are incorporated into narrative and commercial projects. Our vision as a company is mixed, understanding that it is not possible to make films without generating resources that come from advertising. Our collaborators at Cucumelo Films seek the professional and technical development of each of our interns and trainees. This is a commitment we made when we accepted them. We want it to be a great experience and we try to promote creativity from our production framework. We have received interns and trainees from Costa Rica, Colombia, Spain, the United States, Honduras and Nicaragua.

Professional Audiovisual Internships

Isabella Naranjo - Pontificia Universidad Javeriana de Cali - Colombia.

My name is Isabella Naranjo and I am from Cali, Colombia. A year ago, when I was about to graduate from the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana with an emphasis in Audiovisual Production, I had to face the idea of choosing a professional internship, one that would allow me not only to put to the test what I had learned in 5 years of undergraduate studies, but also to challenge me and allow me to discover and learn everything that cannot be taught at the university.

John Ortíz - Kenyon College, Ohio - United States.

At Cucumelo Films I had the experience of working as an assistant editor and camera assistant on a large number of commercial productions. Working as an intern gave me the opportunity to get to know many places in my country that I had no idea about, and made me appreciate much more the cinematographic and creative value of Costa Rica, its places and its people.
