Catherine Kunz
Video Production and Editing Intern

Catherine got her start in Video Production at the Colorado Media School in Lakewood, CO and worked as a broadcast professional at FSN Rocky Mountain for 4 years. After moving out of state and running her own business, she is excited to return to Denver and the industry she loves, and is using her internship at OMF to get caught up on the advances that have been made and to make new connections with other production professionals. When she isn't editing, you can expect to find her skiing, cooking, knitting and spoiling her Great Dane, Stella.

Alan August
Fundraising/Development Intern
Alan's passions revolve around story, storytelling, and helping others to find and express their voice in the world. The Open Media Foundation was a natural internship fit years ago and, remaining committed to the cause, Alan has returned to further support the organization in the area of development and fundraising.
 
After studying the narrative craft and writing numerous short stories and feature-length screenplays, Alan began to appreciate the centrality of story and myth in society. He became interested in how the big ideas in various arenas, such as philosophy, politics, economics, culture, art, science, mathematics, and religion, reflect and inform each other, and in what they ultimately reveal about the unfolding human story. By understanding the evolution of human thought from a large-scale, holistic, multi-disciplinary, mythic perspective, Alan hopes to offer deeper insight into civilization's current crisis, as well as lighting paths toward a healthier future. 
 
Alan's creative work has been recognized in the Washington Post, Newsweek, and the Getty Museum. Recently, he served as a writer and producer in the ColoradoCare campaign, where he worked with Bernie Sanders, Patch Adams, Sen. Irene Aguilar, T.R. Reid, Mitch Dickman, and more in a passionate attempt to make Colorado the first state to provide quality health care to all citizens as a human right.
