For one, I have not chosen to post anonymously. My e-mail is valid and open for anyone to view and respond privately.

Secondly, if you'd like to see the deferred crew contract signed by Monica, please let me know, I'll be more than happy to scan and send it via e-mail, or perhaps you'd prefer a hardcopy?

I don't doubt that you 'think' things are being handled on the up-and-up, unfortunately, there have been press releases, quotes by your director, and confirmed information from other crew members that Shongo and View Askew are faulting on their obligations to the crew members who made this film possible.

I expect that Monica will handle this in a "prompt" manner, right?

: : To date, Vulgar crew members have not been paid. KS was touting
: an $135,000 budget on Stern,

: Actually, KS mentioned an $80,000 budget.

: : yet we know that the film 'cost' around $30-35,000.

: Sure - before post-production. With post, it was over $80,000.

: : Bryan Johnson is quoted on the website as
: saying "I still can't believe people work that hard for free." There was
: no one working for free since we all had deferred deals that, to date,
: have yet to be fulfilled even though ViewAskew and Shongo have sold
: the film for a lump sum plus a percentage of gate receipts.

: Was that the deal? I forgot that you brokered it, anonymous crew
: member.
: : Perhaps someone who actually reads this board, would like to give
: me a valid explanation of why crew members have gone unpaid, and
: when we should expect payment that we're entitled to under the
: deferred crew contracts signed by Shongo Filmworks.

: Sir or madam, I assure you, everything's being handled on the up-
: and-up. For more on the matter, I defer to Monica Hampton - the
: film's producer.

: Monica?
