Behind the scenes on "Portlandia"

Welcome to the set of "Portlandia" season 7, filmed in Portland neighborhoods in early fall 2016. While Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen crack jokes in front of the camera, a dozen PSU students and alumni are working behind the scenes to ensure the shoot runs smoothly.

Six current PSU Film majors scored internships on the set of the sketch comedy show this season. It’s a great opportunity to learn how a professional film crew works and to see how classroom theories and skills can be put into practice.

It’s also a great way to make the professional connections that are vital to a career in the film industry. Do a great job as an intern and there’s a solid chance you’ll get tapped for paid work on the next show. Need proof? Five PSU alumni who work on "Portlandia" got their start as interns.
