The sweet people of Amnesty International Thailand were a great host for my first internship.
They gave me an awesome briefing for a Global Campaign. Goal: become part of Amnesty International and help to stop torture. I’ve worked on it for two days and presented my ideas today. They really liked it and now we are going to see how we can make this happen.
Part of the campaign is a short film and a website. The problem is that Amnesty International doesn’t have a lot of budget to make it. So that’s why I’m asking you, dear reader, if you know any digital agency and/or a director who can help us out with this campaign? Please let me know by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks in advance. (Note: the film has to be shot in Thailand/Bangkok)
Luckily they didn’t forget the ‘food and a place to sleep’-part of my internship. I got a private room with a kingsize bed that is situated only 50 meters walking from ‘ze office’. I’ve never lived so close to my job before.
They also gave me lots of typical Thai food to taste. I especially liked the fried rice and sweet pumpkin. For breakfast I got dried pork with sticky rice. I never thought I would eat it but actually it’s very tastfull.
Well that’s about it for this internship. A very big hug for you guys at Amnesty International. We will meet again.
On monday I’ll start my internship at McCann Worldgroup Bangkok.
But now it’s time to wander around the nightlife of BKK again. And yes mom, I will be carefull with the protests. Love you.
