  •  Unpaid internships are rampant in Hollywood as (6+ / 0-)

    well. For the longest time, Lucasfilm and Dreamworks were the only companies offering paid internships. With recent changes in laws, more major studios are at least offering College credit--you know, their form of compensation in which you get to pay for the privilege of working for them.

    Most Indie films are like this still. And even if they aren't offering it as an internship, I get several requests a month to work a 'freebie' for someone. It's great for networking! they say.  Oh, and favors don't put food on the table.
