    CBS Interactive Rocks


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     As an intern at CBS Interactive, graduate student Max Huleurt works like a salaried member of the team. 'It feels like a real job,' he says. 'There's things that if I don't do them, no one else will do them.' The 22-year-old from San Diego is responsible for re-branding old shows and creating new graphics – and he also works huge industry events such as E3 and Comic-Con, all part of the job.

    Last summer I was a Production Intern at CBS Interactive in the GameSpot division, and just like Luke Skywalker, Aragorn, and Batman, I have made my return. Frankly, it would be dumb to not come back because it is an awesome internship. I just got back from a week down in Los Angeles for the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), where, in between working, I got my hands on the just-announced Xbox One and the PS4, as well as the WiiU, and played some of the best games of E3. While working there, I was live switching between 3 cameras and gameplay footage for our Newsroom segments (here's a link to one: http://www.gamespot.com/e3/the-witcher-3-wild-hunt-is-35-times-the-size-of-the-witcher-2-6409854/).
    Now that I am back in the office, I get to start working on the motion graphics for our Comic-Con coverage and prep for our 360 Cam, which will 3D print action figures of the cosplayers at Comic-Con. And, YES, I will be going to Comic-Con too!
    I get cool swag including T-shirts, water bottles, and a custom backpack, but most importantly I get a great experience working in real productions with people that are passionate about what they do. Plus it is pretty good pay too!
    I am stoked for the rest of this summer at CBS Interactive!
