Hi there. I’m a freelance actor, and I completed acting work for a particular client in mid-December 2013 (just before Christmas). I issued the filmmaker/producer who engaged me for the work (him) with an invoice in mid-December after shooting had completed and I have a 14 day payment terms in my invoice. I followed up in mid January as the money had not been paid (I gave some extra time as it had been Christmas and New Years). He said the money would be paid shortly. To cut a long story short, I’ve followed him up by phone and email every week since and he still has not paid. He’s now telling me that he has no money to pay me, and it might be some time before he has money as he's 'broke'. However, I called up the actual client who the filming was for and they said that they were shocked he hadn’t paid as they had paid him at the time of the shoot. They said they would talk to him to get him to pay me but he still hasn’t done so. So this guy has been paid for the work I did, but hasn’t paid the money to me. This guy is really dodgy. I just want him to pay my invoice which is just under $400 (I was giving them a great rate for my time as I was told there would be regular work with the client and wanted to get my foot in the door!). Turns out the company loves me and wants to do more videos with me, but I never want to work with the dodgy filmmaker/producer again. It might not seem like a lot of money, but I worked hard for it and I've got bills to pay. What else can I do to get him to pay under contract law?
