    Default No Payment by Pierce Teo Production

    I was hired by Pierce Teo Production a month ago to do a photo shoot for hawker centres in Singapore (Project by Singtel). It was a no brainer project but needed alot of energy and effort as I had to travel around Singapore looking for different Hawkers. Each hawker would consist of Aprox:80 Stalls.

    After shooting 18 Hawker Centres, I submited to his partner (producer), Kelvin, the DVDs consisting of edited photos together with an Invoice.
    We agree that the payment would be before hari raya.
    And at the same time, I told kelvin that I do not want to continue with the project as the payment was very low for what was required. Unless he 'Up' the price, then I would continue. e said that he will need to discuss with Pierce 1st before agreeing.

    Later on, he agreed and I proceeded with another 14 Hawkers. This took me several days and I had to take Leaves from my job just so that I would complete this project in time. I edited the photos the day before Hari Raya and sacrificed my time with my family. I did this because I was looking forward for the 1st payment Pierce Teo owes me.
    Before meeting up with Kelvin, I called Pierce and found out he did not have the payment and kept telling me a whole lot of reason why. I said I was very VERY disappointed as I needed the money for Hari Raya. So he said he will pay me by Friday. I proceded meeting with Kelvin and handed him another set of DVDs from the 2nd shoot and told him that we will meet up again and I will pass the 2nd invoice and collect the payment together. And that was the last I saw them.

    Till today, I have been calling Pierce Teo and Kelvin asking for the payment, and I get no answer. There was once I used my friend's phone and Kelvin picked up, he said that he will make Pierce call me back regarding this. That night 14/10/08, Pierce smsed me "Hi kelvin ask me to call u sorry missed your call checked w singtel paymt on fri will contact you asap".

    Im still waiting for that call. When I call them, I get no answer.

    In total, they owe me $940
    you may say that this is small amount. Of course, But I need it badly that is why I took this low paying project. It took me 3-4weeks to complete a total of 32 Hawker Centres. I did all this during fasting month. I had no money but i managed to go around shooting looking foward for payment. In the end, it costed me!!

    1 Hawker - Aprox. 80 stalls
    32 Hawkers - Aprox. 2560 Stalls

    Company that owes me - Pierce Teo Production
    People I deal With - Pierce Teo & Kelvin
    Total Amount Owed By Company - $940

    bro, i think u need to sort out with them first....different pple deal with this differently...

    some wait for the client to pay them before paying those they engaged...

    some pay up first whilst waiting for client's payment...
