Relatório de estágio – assistente de imagem na Lightbox

  • Rúben Filipe Castro dos Santos Cavaco (Student)

Student thesis: Master's Thesis


As part of the second year of the Master's in Cinema at the Catholic University of Portugal, a Curricular Internship was proposed in Image Assistant. In this sense, Lightbox was the company I chose for its realization. This is an audiovisual production company based in Porto, with a vast portfolio in the areas of Cinema and Advertising. I was also part of Toolbox, a partner company, which holds the operational technical part and is used to rent equipment and servicing. This report intends to describe my path during the six months of internship at this producer. The main objective of the internship was to put into practice what I learned in the first year of this training, as well as in the degree. In this sense, I was able to perform functions as an Image Assistant and later as a Camera Operator, combining these positions with the preparation and reception of leases. During the course, several projects were carried out with large entities in the north of the country, such as the Serralves Foundation, Futebol Clube do Porto and Sonae. From the simple annotation of plans to Gimbal Operator, there were several roles that I was responsible for. Satisfied and fulfilled with my career and professional and personal growth, I propose to detail the main learnings and challenges.
