Part 2! :)
I’m an international student with a student visa studying film and tv production at Tisch. I’ve done several unpaid internships over the past 4 years because it is illegal for me to be paid in the U.S without a work visa! Some of my internships have SUCKED and I’ve definitely been taken advantage of, but for the most part I’ve learned a lot! But if they stop allowing unpaid internships, other international students like myself will NEVER be able to get their start in the film industry!
