    Plus health insurance? Not many internships pay as much OR offer that.

    This seems to me to be a pretty darn well-paying internship, getting health insurance is a great perk, particularly for a longer-than-average stint like this one, and, perhaps almost as good, and valuable -- these days, and in this business -- is the video operation/production experience that would be gained.

    Seems that, by the end of this, you'd probably know just everything you'd need to know to do the prevalent video work desired and/or advertised as required in many of today's media jobs.
