I have heard all of the recent controversy about the 100 dancers that were asked to work for 11hours for a Video Clip filming – and then a selection would be asked to perform at The Logies – for free.
The basis of this would be that their pay would be the ‘exposure’ they would receive.
This controversy then seemed to extend to our local FashFest – where a selection of models were offered a paid role… and the remainder would receive ‘exposure’ and ‘experience’.
Is this common? …and is this appropriate?
