I'm currently doing an internship at a medium to large sized company, think 100+ employees, spread over multiple countries to give you an idea.
My school has sent me a bit of a silly assignment, that should somehow do me good while applying for work. I'm currently studying computer science, but for some reason we have to make a selfie with the company logo and make a short movie about our time in the company, including screentime of the atmosphere etc in the company.
Now I'm planning to sent an email to all employees in the company, shortly explaining my assignment and asking if it's okay if I briefly film them while they work, making some 'atmosphere pictures'.
How should I write this email out?
Both me and a lot of my fellow students agree it's a silly, maybe even unnecessary, assignment, but the fact is it's still an assignment. I'm hesitant to ridicule it in my e-mail, since that implies I don't take any assignment seriously. Though I'm also a bit hesitant to really 'go' for this, since it'd probably be the target of jokes for the next few days. I can live with the latter, no worries, but I figured I could use some advice on this.
