Over the past semester I’ve had the chance to intern at Suited & Booted Studios, a short film and documentary company based here in Bath. I’ve gotten to assist with a range of tasks, from pre-production to communication to even some light editing and acting. I’ve learned a lot about the workplace, and most especially a small British workplace.
My last day reiterated to me just how wonderful the people at my internship are. Around 4pm I was called upstairs to the meeting room, where I was greeted by all of the employees who had set up a cream tea for me (one of the most British send-offs you could have). They had set up scones and butter (cream) and jam and tea (which sparked many conversations about how you pronounce scone and do you put cream or jam on your scone first?). They had all signed a lovely card for me. And to top it all off, they got me a present. I had mentioned a few times about my exploits with Jane Austen dancing, which they found highly amusing. And so they had gotten me a CD of Jane Austen era music!
It was a lovely way to end my time at my internship. I’m so grateful to have gotten the opportunity to work with such great people.
