NYC: First Day at the Office

Tuesday, June 15, 2010 Posted by Unknown , , , No comments
Yesterday was my first day at the Marvel office, and it was a pretty great experience so far. Unfortunately, I can't post any pictures because Marvel has a very strict no photos policy while on the premise, which is totally justified considering all of the stuff they are working on in the office. Also, I'm not really allowed to talk about anything that goes on inside of the office's what I can talk about:

-Took the subway at 8am to get to Marvel by 9:30.
-Got out of the wrong side of the station, and then walked the wrong way which set me back 15 minutes.
-Got outside of Marvel at 8:50 so I went across the street to the Au Bon Pain and ate a Apple tart to kill sometime.
-Went in at 9:10 and met up with Sara Del Greco, the Internship Coordinator, and signing a bunch of paperwork like Nondisclosure Agreements and Work for Hire contracts.
-Sebastian, Assistant Editor over at X-Men, took me around the 10th floor and showed me where's what and who's who.
-Then I got to mark where the word bubbles would go for the letterer, which sounds cooler than it is because the letterer and editor have final say, but still it was cool just reading dialogue and placing them.
-And by the end of the day, I got my Marvel email set up and that was about it.
