Charlie Southall has stared quite clearly that he doesn’t believe his freelancers should be paid on time.
After being 2 months late paying an invoice, and only paying once I filed a case with small claims, he refused to pay the court fee,
And after a series of threatening and unprofessional messages, where he called me “silly”, accused me of “playing games”, being “ignorant”, saying I’d bow burnt my bridges with a production company who spent £300, 000 on freelancers (theoretically of course, I’m sure no one gets paid). One email silly read “you have been paid... what he he’ll is wrong with you???!!!!! ”
(Falling to acknowledge that I had not been reimbursed in full)
I was then threatened with a defemation lawsuit if I said anything about him online.
After seeing reports on here, I decided to steer clear of this dangerous chap, but feel it is my right and duty to warn others. Do not work for dragonfly productions (not the same as Dragonfly TV) if you want to get paid within the 30 days specified. Charlie Southall is not someone you want to work with, his messages made me feel intimidated and scared.
