Thank you for posting that article. I was released from my contract last month instead of at the beginning of my pregnancy, to my surprise as well as yours. The fact that I was signed to Digital Playground was nothing but a blessing in the beginning. It was the right move for me in advancing my career in the right direction.
I have to be honest though, the end result of me being released is a more attractive alternative than continuing to not have my films promoted to the fervor or extent of some of the other talent Digital has in their stable. I don’t know if it was intentional, but I think it was blatantly obvious to any onlooker that there are particular members of Digital that receive a substantially larger push from PR and the company as a whole.
I have nothing but gratitude for the opportunity, but my stamp on the industry being what it was, and where it was going, was not advantageous for me. I’ve grown in leaps and bounds over a short period of time and I’m making decisions that are for the betterment of my family and I. Good luck to the remaining roster of DP, I hope your run in the company goes better for you.
*** Personal addition – so I guess Morgan Dayne aka Rio Valentine learned the lesson all those before here did with Digital Playground, if you aren’t Jesse Jane, you are only there in some way to support the career of Jesse Jane. You are nothing more than an extra to DP and you are easily replaceable. The *ONLY* one that matters to DP is Jesse Jane.
