Veronica undertakes internship at ABC

Emerging WA producer, Veronica Light, has been named as the recipient of a Screenwest / ABC Children’s Diversity Internship.

She is currently undertaking a six month paid internship with ABC in Sydney, working as a Runner and Production Assistant for a variety of shows.

Michael Carrington, ABC Head of Children’s and Education said, “ABC Children’s is becoming more distinctive, diverse, ambitious, open to talent, hungry for ideas, and willing to take audiences to new places, or to revisit familiar places in new ways. To do that, we need to attract a diverse group of people to join us. We are constantly looking for new opportunities to encourage, coach and nurture new behind the scenes talent in the children’s industry. We are thrilled to be working with Veronica Light as part of our Sceenwest / ABC Children’s Diversity Internship program”.

Light, who has Filipino-Australian heritage, said, “It’s an incredible experience working with people who are passionate about creating high quality content. Every day I’m working on something different, which is allowing me to get the most out of my time here.

“This internship will be the stepping stone I need to transfer from being a film student to a practitioner. I have the utmost respect for the ABC as their principle of educating and entertaining all kinds of Australians perfectly aligns with my own world views.”

Seph McKenna, CEO Screenwest added, “The experience Veronica will gain in the next six-months will prove to be invaluable for her career. Nothing is better than being on the ground in the thick of the action and Veronica can take what she learnt as a student and apply it to real filmmaking.”
