Brendan Alvino '24 Brendan Alvino ’24Brendan Alvino’s internship with the Miami Dolphins is the first step in what he hopes is a long career in professional sports.

As a video production intern, Alvino ’24 assists with filming team practices, studio shoots, field location shoots and subject-driven features, as well as in the editing and production of video content and motion graphics for the Dolphins’ Hard Rock Stadium and its partners, which has helped him familiarize himself with industry-standard equipment and software. The video team also collaborates with the social media and creative teams of the Miami Dolphins to brainstorm and develop creative concepts for video projects.

“The Miami Dolphins’ internet presence show that they are one of the most talented groups of creatives in the country, and the opportunity to learn from them is a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” Alvino said.

Alvino entered his internship with plenty experience of his own. A sports media major with a minor in marketing, he has worked closely with River Hawks Athletics to promote Susquehanna’s Division III teams. He credits the immediate hands-on experience and small class sizes within the communications department with preparing him for his experience with the Miami Dolphins.

“From Day One at Susquehanna, I was challenged with things in the editing room, production studio and classroom that I may not have gotten until later years elsewhere,” said Alvino, of Nazareth, Pennsylvania. “This internship is preparing me to work for high-level organizations with large teams. I will be better prepared for things such as project management, organization and constructive criticism.”

After graduation, Alvino hopes to work for a company and team such as the Miami Dolphins – in video production, social media or communications.

“I want to work for an organization that seeks to push creative boundaries and produce the best content for their clients or fan base,” he said. “My background at Susquehanna has thankfully prepared me for a career outside sports as well, whether it be entertainment, amusement or elsewhere.”
