Digital Domain scam: Textor exploited student labor for private profit

John Textor: “30 percent of the workforce at our digital studio down in Florida, is not only going to be free, with student labor, it’s going to be labor that’s actually paying us for the privilege of working on our films.” (Source: New Times)
