Only the priveleged may apply would have to be the caveat otherwise..
Bar the location preference so you can hunt them down and slay them if they mess up - I think I do all of the above (albeit badly and half arsed) for free anyway. But if I officialised it - it would count as a job therefore impacting tax etc zzzzzzzzzzzz.
Dude... The internship is very important within this industry... Everyone wants you to have previous experience, and here is said experience... That experience will help you secure a place in the industry in the future... It is an investment of sorts... No teacher can teach you what experience can.
Besides you would also get to work alongside a friendly and helpful team. It would be mutually beneficial.
Also you cant be taxed on nothing... whats 17% of nothing? oh wait... nothing...
I would love to be eligible, but I admit there are other better candidates out there....
