Intern? Slave? Same Thing, Different Name!

An intern’s life is hard and many have compared today’s internship system to the ancient concept of slavery.
At Filmateria, interns ARE slaves, seriously!😉

As TeamMarcoPolo produces new episodes of Florence and Rome, we all get drawn into the project. Today, I literally became the symbolic intern slave. Do you like my table cloth Toga?

We didn’t get to actually shoot the scene today. I might be able to provide an update with an actual film still soonish.

Whereas I don’t get paid for what I do in cash, I learn a lot on set, often get free food and drinks and I have plenty of fun. Of course part of the fun is that it is temporary😉.

However, it does make me wonder if there were unknown advantages to being a slave under the Roman rule? Anyone got ideas? Might have been good for “Social Networking”?😉
