At Bridge Agency you need to be a self-starter and able to work independently. There have been several times when none of the partners have come into the Media Center and the other intern and I have been left to work completely on our own, assigned to projects via Asana and instructed via email if there are questions or clarifications needed. This is not a problem for me, though sometimes when asking for guidance it would be easier if Anthony were there to show me rather than try to explain it via email. For the most part, the other intern and I do not collaborate on projects; Anthony has us working on completely different projects or different parts of the same project, she has used the photos that I’ve cut. We have had to exchange a few files on one day when we were the only two people in the office. Because I subscribe to the Adobe Creative Cloud and I was able to download After Effects I have been given the opportunity to learn this program and work on motion graphics projects with and for Anthony.
I am usually the first one there, and I get in between 15-45 minutes early depending on how the busses are running. I take two busses to get to the Media Center, and because they are sometimes unreliable, I allow myself an hour and a half to get to the office in the mornings. I have decided that it is simpler to go into the Media Center and start working than to kill time in the area before going in.
