To any and all who would read this, I would like to preface my remarks by saying, there are a good many decent talented and reputable people in the entertainment industry i.e. casting directors, agents as well as models, actors and singers.
Fred Hodges of The Talent People, should not be included in the aforementioned. I met Fred Hodges of the talent people in, August of 2004, after answering an and in the Bowling Green Kentucky paper looking for actors models sing as songwriters. I did not know how the business worked and so I flew by the seat of my pants. I spoke with Mr. Hodges requested money. Under normal circumstances that should have been a tipoff as two what was to come however I gave Mr. Hodges several hundred dollars for his representation and for head shots, which came under criticism from the real professionals, at any rate that would be my own fault.
I did however get work for Mr. Hodges doing a music video and have been promised payment for my work time after time after time and have not yet seen one thin dime. I have made phone call after phone call and have been promised but have gotten no results. Absent in the certified letter demanding payment and threatening legal action in the absence of payment and I am prepared to take whatever legal steps are necessary to collect the money Fred Hodges of the talent people owes me. He also asked me to pay the bill for him in Bowling Green, which I did with my own personal check and I have documentation of all my transactions with Fred Hodges.
I will be contacting the Better Business Bureau of middle Tennessee and the state Attorney General's office of Tennessee in the event I do not receive the monetary remuneration owed me.
