Remember all of those fancy commercials on your parents’ or grandparents’ black and white TV? Didn’t think so.
Our first Propulsion Media Labs former intern spotlight is on Rick Agajanian. Rick interned with us from January-June 2003, during the Paul Turner/Propulsion transition.
Nolan North had no idea what he was in for when video game developer Naughty Dog called him in for an audition. He probably just figured that his prolific voice acting career in video games just landed him yet another role, where he would sit in a booth with a microphone and record lines for yet another grizzled space marine. He had no idea that he was auditioning to be a part of the critically-praised “Uncharted” series of games, and to witness the birth of a revolution in game design.
At some companies, the word “intern” is synonymous with “gopher”, where bright-eyed, bushy-tailed students are relegated to photocopying, sorting mail, stuffing envelopes, and getting coffee and food. At other companies, it can get even worse…
At Propulsion Media Labs, we’re proud that our internship program encompasses much more, allowing our interns to make real contributions to the company. Whether it’s assisting our production team, creating their own unique projects, joining the promotion effort, we encourage our interns to take initiative. Our goal is to try to expose our interns to as many aspects of the business as possible.
If you were born after the seventies, I have some good news and some bad news. Unfortunately, the bad news is that you missed most of the good music. However, on the positive side, you probably grew up with video games, playing classics such as The Legend Of Zelda, Super Mario Bros., and even Pong. Yes, I’m sure that most of your allowance was sacrificed to that seemingly ancient arcade game, whiling away the hours at the mall until your mom picked you and your friends up. Since then, games have transcended the arcade experience, and have invaded our homes and offices (not Propulsion Media Labs’ office, of course ☺).
