Slavery. Here is how film companies regard interns: "We take in interns because they do work that nobody else wants to do, and don't even expect money in return. If interns get upity and start asking for enough money to live on, we just sack them--there are always hundreds of other kids willing to work for free at a film company." We know many people who have swept floors, taken out garbage, walked dogs, picked up and delivered baby food, driven producers' children to and from school in Beverly Hills, bought lingerie for producers' girlfriends, and so on, all for less than subsistence pay. But we know of no one who has ever gone from an internship into a decent paying job. Avoid film internships if you possibly can.
