Being a part of ITV, I learned a lot about the workflow in post-production. I was able to observe how different post-production teams operate when it comes to delivering content on time.
ITV America is one of the largest television brands in America. They offer both scripted and un-scripted programming and manage to pump out hours of that programming for countless networks at a time! It is also worth mentioning that they recently located their headquarters in Stamford, CT, bringing with them various production jobs.
ITV has accomplished a lot, and being selected for the DMCT Talent Placement Program provided Trinity Caban with an opportunity to experience life as a working professional at a company whose credits include Love Island, Alone, Hells Kitchen, and Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Trinity is a Digital Media & Design student attending the University of Connecticut. She recently completed an internship for ITV, which she considered as “a once in-a-lifetime experience […] to witness the behind-the-scenes of how these projects come together”
“As nervous as I was, I appreciate them taking the time to speak to me and answer my questions,” Trinity added. Interning for any sort of digital media based company as a digital media major is, well, major. ITV in particular is a wonderful choice if you’re pursuing a career in digital media!

Digital Media Connecticut (DMCT) is an association representing a collection of CT higher education institutions working in partnership to support skill development in digital media and content production.
DMCT Talent Placement Program
The DMCT Talent Placement program is a new initiative that places some of Connecticut’s most talented students at CT-based media companies. For a student to participate in the program, they must first receive a nomination from their department and then be selected by representatives from one of DMCT’s industry partners. You can learn more about this program here.
If you are unsure how your skills connect to Connecticut’s growing Digital Media industry, I encourage you to enroll in DMCT’s first micro-credential course, The Emerging Practitioner. I am a course graduate and learned many things to assist my transition from University to a Career in CT and beyond!
