FLORIDA FUGITIVE, RUSSELL SHIPPEE

(of RS STUDIO and BOOST MEDIA MARKETING)

ATTEMPTS TO EXTORT, BLACKMAIL, and COMMENT ROBERRY FROM FILMMAKERS

EXTORTION, is a criminal offense of obtaining money, property, or services from a person, entity, or institution, through coercion.  Extortion involves the verbal or written instillation of fear that something will happen to the victim if they do not comply with the extortionist's demands.  BLACKMAIL, always involves extortion.  In blackmailing, the extortionist threatens to reveal information about a victim or their family members that is potentially embarrassing, socially damaging, or incriminating unless a demand for money, property, or services is met. ROBBERY, whether armed or not, the offender takes property from the victim by the immediate use of force or fear that force will be immediately used. 

 Vendetta Motion Pictures is in the movie making business. [continued below]....

..... It retained RS Studio to help create promotional posters, promotional videos and a website, collateral to the prospective movie, Blue Suede.  After several months of payments for services rendered, Vendetta sought an accounting invoice from RS Studio (regarding work performed, money paid and billing information as none had been provided by the Studio).  At that point, it was understood that payment had been paid to date for promotional posters, promotional videos, and website for the movie Blue Suede.  Without providing any accounting, Russell Shippee of RS Studio then demanded a single payment of $26,000.

 RS Studio has refused to provide any information or accounting of how it arrived at that figure.  Depending on the day, and despite the fact that Mr. Shippee has done no further work for Vendetta, he has claimed the debt is $20,000, also $24,000 also $26,000 as well as $32,000.  It seems that he cannot figure out his own accounting, yet demands we paying him.  

 As information requested was not produced by RS Studio, weekly payments by Vendetta Motion Pictures LLC to RS Studio stopped.  Vendetta Motion Pictures LLC presented two written contracts to RS Studio in order to clarify the relationship.  Both contracts were rejected by Russell Shippee.  Thereafter, Russell Shippee wrote many threatening statements to Vendetta Motion Pictures.  For example:  "as I told you, you have 24 hours .... I will destroy you on social media, that's my backyard; you don't know who you are f---ing with."  "After the 24 hours you are f---ing done."  "You(r) a*s is done I will f--k you harder then you will know."  Mr. Shippee has since taken control of the Blue Suede website, locking Vendetta Motion Pictures out of the website.

 Based on Mr. Shippee’s numerous threatening words and his actions, it is quite clear that Mr. Shippee of RS Studio and Boost Media Marketing is attempting to commit EXTORTION, BLACKMAIL and ROBBERY to Vendetta Motion Pictures LLC.   

 Subsequently, Vendetta Motion Pictures LLC hired attorney Robert Stowe or about August 13, 2014.  Mr. Shippee then identified his attorney as George N. Asack, Jr. of Asack & Asack, 95 West Elm Street, Brockton, MA 02301.  On August 14, 2014, Attorney Stowe placed a phone call to attorney Asack.  Attorney Asack informed Attorney Stowe that contrary to claims by Mr. Shippee, he had not been retained by Mr. Shippee or RS Studio or Boost Media Marketing. 

 Mr. Shippee became hostile on the phone when Attorney Stowe requested his address so he could communicate on a formal level.  Mr. Shippee then provided an address of 26 Breakwater Cove, Chelsea, Massachusetts.  This turned out to be a bogus address (See Certified RR 7014 0510 0000 4879 2718).  When confronted with this wrong address on August 18, 2014, Mr. Shippee confirmed that the address was incorrect and he did not live there.  Mr. Shippee’s response was, "There is no law that says I have to tell you where I live or work."  As a matter of law, Vendetta Motion Pictures LLC does need this information to accurately file tax returns.  Upon research, RS Studio is not a valid corporation, thus Mr. Shippee's personal information is required.  

 Despite Mr. Shippee’s claims to the contrary, he does not hold copyrights to any of the promotional posters, promotional videos, or website for the movie Blue Suede.  According to the US Copyright Office electronic Public Copyright Catalog (website), as of September 05, 2014, Russell Shippee, RS Studio, or Boost Media Marketing does not hold Copyrights to any Blue Suede or Vendetta Motion Pictures materials.

 In the interim we have learned a reason why Mr. Shippee may not want to be located.  On August 28, 2014 Attorney Stowe spoke with Russell Shippee’s Probation Officer, Mr. Robert Watson in Hillsborough County Florida.  The Probation Officer confirmed that Mr. Russell Shippee has an outstanding felony arrest warrant for a violation of his probation stemming from a felony criminal action in Hillsborough District Court, Docket # 07CF-011213.  Mr. Shippee also has a second outstanding felony arrest warrant in Hillsborough District Court, Docket #07CF-019346.  Additionally, Mr. Shippee has two outstanding arrest warrants in Massachusetts.  The first stems from a recent criminal case filed in Salem District Court, Docket #1436CR000675.  The second stems from a criminal case in Charlestown District Court, Docket #1304CR000374.  

 Mr. Russell Shippee of RS Studio and Boost Media Marketing currently has four outstanding warrants that we know of.  Additionally, he is currently classified as a Fugitive in the state of Florida.  

 Consumers, PLEASE be very aware of Russell Shippee of RS Studio and Boost Media Marketing.  Vendetta Motion Pictures is working very hard, and through the proper and legal channels to find him to resolve the issue at hand, and to bring him to justice

Hello, Are there any adults reporting?

AUTHOR: creation112 - (USA)

I must say that I'm appauled that somebody would actually try to take down some ones reputation on things from the far past. YES he may have messed up, he admits it, he paid for it. The saying of once... is always.. is not only unfair, its unjust. People who have been in certain situations in the past don't always return to that. He has paid his debt, learned, moved on, and done right. Trolling is certainly not the adult -or legal may I add- way to do this.

ART and FREELANCER

AUTHOR: A friend to both - ()

ART AND FREELANCER I think based on your your post you are hoping to find a PAYDAY which is cool but so wrong on how you are trying to do it.  To do it by trying to claim that you see the writing on the wall is so wrong you see nothing as you know nothing at all about either of the companies . Or to talk bad about someone you have no clue about as you do not know either of these companies.  So stop and sit this iione out or read a little more  so you can see the story from an 3rd party who knows both of these companies.

 

Never did RS say he did not get paid. I think what I read is he was paid a base pay with the promise of a future payout  for his work that  he would have to do to get the film to the next level so the film could be picked up.

I also see where  Vendetta stated they owed him money  and that RS was not happy with the offer. 

 I can see how this started. One person feeling like he was not going to get paid the other person trying to pay but his money ran out then trying  what he could to get the money but, not able to meet the terms that need to be met. Then cause I know them both they both are hot headed and do not hold back when feeling attacked.

 It is very sad as both of these people are very very talented.  So For you guys to try to talk bad about RS is very wrong as I hate to say he had more talent them most companies out there and could do almost everything a company needed from Graphics, web site  developement, Seo and video you name it they could do it.

Vendetta was willing to work side by side and market a vewry good script and what these two teams did was amazing  and the hype they built and the buzz they created was like no other indie movie has seen.  So sad this happen.   

 Since they could not come to an agreement before the friendship fell apart  Both sides lost  Vendetta the art work and website and marketing that RS was doing such an awesome job with and no one can say that is not true. RS lost money and time  and a  client that at one time was a friend that they can never get back. The biggest lost was a good friendship that was destroyed due the lack of converstaion and a cool headed person trying to help fix this.

  I know both parties personally  and can see how this feud started and blew up.  What you two do not know is the friendship and the hours that the two main people worked together and the relationship and trust they both had for each other. 

This is a very bad turn of events for both of them. Jr has not gotten a bad name and has lost respect and friends and Russ lost business and respect. All over a matter that could have been resolved very easy.   Both of them speak out of madness and with out thinking of the out come or what it makes each other look like. They both want to make it look like they were right at no matter the cost.  

I am not saying who was at wrong or right   as both of them made mistakes and both of them bashed the other just as bad. Both of them posted negative information about the other. Both of them feel betrayed. 

So Art  and Freelancer and every other party that is not involved in this matter  stop trying to add fuel to this fire. 

Also  art and freelancer  I think you are just trying to get a pay check and do not really care about designers rep you care about getting money that is it and if it means you bash or try to play on the feelings of Vendetta then you will. .

I also google bad reports about designers and do not see any where that is says people think bad about grahic designers in the USA . That maybe the case over seas or in india  but, not here in the USA most designers here have a good reputation.  The only reason I bring up over seas is I look at the links given and they are for a website that finds jobs for overseas workers is that not the case? I mean 1 out of 30 was a US Citizen that is what  I saw.My 2 cents worth 

 Wish you the best 

TC

My Response to allegation 2

AUTHOR: RussellShippee - ()

Vendeta Motion Pictures LLC , Andre Lamerique. aka Jr Hepburn, Marie Brandt and Andrew Adler claim

RS Studio has refused to provide any information or accounting of how it arrived at that figure.  Depending on the day, and despite the fact that Mr. Shippee has done no further work for Vendetta, he has claimed the debt is $20,000, also $24,000 also $26,000 as well as $32,000.  It seems that he cannot figure out his own accounting, yet demands we paying him.  

 

Here is proof  that was not the case....

Jr Hepburn
You said more then necessary no worries
If u had a figure in mind from jump like I asked you should've came out and said it now I'm
over doing my part and I'm being slapped in the face whatever man it's all good
Russell Shippee
I told u to come up with a fair number and if I felt it was not correct I would make
adjustments... again my concerns vendetta is not tied to this as I did the work for the
company 2 no dates 3 turning rights over eith out full payments. JR this business I am not
mad at u. You are who I have to talk to give me contact info for rebecca and I will tell them
what I feel and also have been advised about.

 

This is taken from messages date on Aug 7th. If you email me I will provide you with the email chain in PDF straight from Gmail.


Yes, I was asked what do they owe RSSTUDIO but, because I was a part of a team.  I want to give them an oppertunity to come up with a fair dollar amount.  I told Andre Lamerique. aka Jr Hepburn that I would leave it up to them( Vendeta Motion Pictures LLC , Andre Lamerique. aka Jr Hepburn, Marie Brandt and Andrew Adler.)  I knew they had a small budget and Andre Lamerique. aka Jr Hepburn and I have always talked about my costs  for my services. 

 

 Vendeta Motion Pictures LLC , Andre Lamerique. aka Jr Hepburn, Marie Brandt and Andrew Adler claim this 

he has claimed the debt is $20,000, also $24,000 also $26,000 as well as $32,000.  It seems that he cannot figure out his own accounting, yet demands we paying him.  

My Response to this is as follows 

This is not the case  here is  excert from the contract given to me  Where Vendeta Motion Pictures LLC , Andre Lamerique. aka Jr Hepburn, Marie Brandt and Andrew Adler made the 1st offer of $20,000.

After reviewing the contract and doing basic math and still having personal feelings and wanting to make this fair for all I told Andre Lamerique. aka Jr Hepburn that I felt we were close and I thought $26,000 would wrap this up as far as the money goes. Just like I stated I would in the above message from gmail.

The $24.000 came in to play cause Andre Lamerique. aka Jr Hepburn told me he did not think they would appove 26,000 this conversation happen on the phone 

The $32,000 came from a post I place trying to show that if I took my lowest rate of $25.00 an hour and times that by the lowest amount of hours I and my team worked  it would come out to $32,000 in fees  so i was trying to show how I was being very fair and charging below the value I could get.

Response to First Claim in the report that was filed.

AUTHOR: RussellShippee - ()

They Say " After several months of payments for services rendered, Vendetta sought an accounting invoice from RS Studio (regarding work performed, money paid and billing information as none had been provided by the Studio). " 

Here is a little proof that this is incorrect and they knew they owed me. See the Yellow Highlights areas to see that this is not true.

To: jr hepburn <jr.hepburn@yahoo.com>


Russell Shippee
Bro do we really want to go down like this?
you pay a person who did nothing for you 13k I gave you over 9 months and paid out money to
support you...and you think my times is only worth 7k more.. I will bite my nose to spite my face
before I am taken advantage of.
Today
Russell Shippee
I think we need to talk...please call me in the morning.
Jr Hepburn
#1 thats not my money thats what they agreed to give us.... And your acting as if its money
coming out of my pocket thats what was approved its not my descision, your coming at me
as if I have the money in a vault and said this is what I've come to agreed to, and secondly
to whole point of me going to them and asking them for the money to ensure your taking
care of now in case after all said and done we are in the red you atleast were taken care
of...If my efforts are not appreciated thats fine...
Russell Shippee
Jr all need to talk. I want to have this wrap up by friday...
Jr Hepburn
It's cool I'll talk to them in the am and try to figure it out and hopefully be the end of it and
we all can move on give u an update tomorrow Russell thank you
Russell Shippee
Jr I need dates you have the the contract with distrubution saying you are shooting so you
have projected date With outthem I can not sign nor will I turn over the rights till I am paid in full. my attorney
has already stated that signing an open contract was a big big red flag . By doing that
there is no recourse for me cause if the movie never gets shot then I never get paid .

understand I gave u 9 months of work and gave you a quilty product that made
vendettas film come to life. I supported the company and did what ever the company
needed done.
Did u even read the contract? You should and then send it to 3 business people and ask
them what they think.
I could have only ask for the same respect I gave the company . It is sad

Jr Hepburn
You said more then necessary no worries
If u had a figure in mind from jump like I asked you should've came out and said it now I'm
over doing my part and I'm being slapped in the face whatever man it's all good
Russell Shippee
I told u to come up with a fair number and if I felt it was not correct I would make
adjustments... again my concerns vendetta is not tied to this as I did the work for the
company 2 no dates 3 turning rights over eith out full payments. JR this business I am not
mad at u. You are who I have to talk to give me contact info for rebecca and I will tell them
what I feel and also have been advised about.
Jr Hepburn
No worries
Today
Jr Hepburn
Alexa asked if u can contact her regarding her video
Russell Shippee
I already did ... She will post it tomorrow...
Jr Hepburn
Must've been an old message


Jr Hepburn
Well good news is found middle ground to get this squared by tomorrow it's unfortunate
you feel that I'm out to screw you but that's been the mantra for a month now
Russell Shippee
No Jr you are wrong about that... But your friends are cause to do what they are doing is
very wrong to make it look as I did not work for vendetta is so wrong in 100 ways.
Jr Hepburn
That's not the case number two they aren't my friends, number two it's to ensure you
receive your money in the end everyone knows you worked for vendetta check the imdb
it's you're name for me to be able to get them to give me the funds to fulfill agreement so
you're services are paid in full this is the way they want it done not vendetta not us...When
people with that much money invests begin hearing the word lawsuit it doesn't boad to well
Russell Shippee
Jr again the contract should and needs to be with vendetta motion pictures and not you...
See I worked for and with vendetta motion pictures. When you hired me you and andrew
and maria all where owners of vendetta you want to them remember to get the okay to the
weekly payments. So now to remove vendetta from the contract will not work.... please
look at all the work you see the logo?
Russell Shippee
Per my attorney the distribution company will give vendetta the funds and vendetta will pay
me. See distribution will not give Jr Funds cause you acting as a contractor so my attorney
advised me to have the contract done as it should be done. See andrew and maria owe
me just as much as you do.. The red flags are company missing the dates of distribution of
funds. The amount and the release of copyright to vendetta..
Jr Hepburn
The verbal agreement was between you and I and I never went to Marie to get the money
well I guess back to square one..Just have to figure something else out to resolve this
return to monthly payments suspend all activity until I pay you fully for the amount you're
owed. That's one like they won't budge on.
Russell Shippee
Jr you are incorrect but if that is what you need to say then that fine... So you forgot how
you told me that day you had to talk to your partners and you came back to me and said
that you and your partners talked and you agreed on 140 a week for Also the work was for
vendetta motion pictures if not why is the logo all over everything why did I build a new
website for vendetta if not then why was I working with Maria and have all the emails to
show you that where she and I talk about the work and the relationship of vendetta and
the 3 of you and where she told me how grateful she was to have me on her team and
working with the company. I have Andrew paying me and I have the emails from him
saying that he is happy of all the work I did for the company... So you understand all 3 of
you owe me this money not just you Jr....
Jr Hepburn
And then you don't further understand the position we are in is that they don't want the
contract put in that manner like I said we are back to square one my hands are tied if you
want to do an agreement to monthly payments for balanced owed to you that's not a
problem as it stands I can't get that approved my hands are tied
Russell Shippee
I think you should allow my attorney talk to them..
cause what you are doing is not 100% above board.. they are trying release vendetta from
this debt and that is who I was working with...See I did just as much work as everyone
involved and should be compensated for my work that vendetta motion pictures employed
me to do.
Jr Hepburn
I'll draw up contract myself for the monthly payments to resolve this I'll tell them forget it
can't come to agreement with the terms required
Russell Shippee
No I want an agreement from vendetta motion pictures
Jr Hepburn
You want to be compensated and I've worked hard to ensure you be compansated when
we start shooting and that's not still good enough with the terms that was asked for..Think
it over the weekend I have to head back to work
Russell Shippee
Also the terms required **** What they gave me was a worthless piece of paper that a
dummy would have to sign.. Not trying to be rude but that was a joke and now I have 2
contracts now 1 with vendetta name and then 1 with your name only but the same terms
Jr Hepburn
You asked for it to be either or looking at the situation this is the way they felt more
comfortable with proceedings again it's not my money it's not up to me.
I'm heading back to work I've already spent half the day discussing this on the phone
earlier thinking those issues from last night was the only issue, and found a way to get that

done. But it is what it is I'll send the email when I get out to forget the whole thing.
Russell Shippee
Jr this is not personal it is now 100% business as you can not talk to me it no longer
personal it has become business. I understand what you want to do and I thank you but I
have to make sure that I am protected. Saying that it is paid on a set milestone with the
film means nothing as if you never get there I am screwed I need a date and at that time if
not paid I have the rights to seek compensation and relief. See I Tried to work with you
and I was very nice I though letting you pay me weekly and then with an exit game of
being made solid when the movie started. I am not trying to be a jerk here. then they
basicly said you will suspend all work and relationship with RSSTUDIo meaning I built up
the whole look of vendetta and they are going to tell you to --Our suggestion is if this
becomes an overwhelming issue to suspend all activity regarding using RS Studio's
marketing services until the outstanding balance is paid in full, per the attached contract.
Or until weekly payments have been made, and paid in full.
Russell Shippee
Jr I kept my promise to vendetta and I did as vendetta asked and did 95% as vendetta
wanted or better then vendetta asked for. I never disappeared on vendetta I was online for
vendetta 100% of the time no matter it was 2am or 2pm I was there to help vendetta. I
gave the company everything they asked for. Now I feel it is vendettas turn to do the
same.
Russell Shippee
Jr you need to understand this is not going away.. I am owed money and the contract has
to be up to legal standards for me and My attorney. That requires dates of disbursements
an procedures for failing to meet you agreement should it happen. I am doing everything I
can to be civil here ... Please understand I want to help you not harm you I have been a
100% stand up guy for vendetta and always no matter what looked out for the company
and always tried to keep vendetta out of trouble
Jr Hepburn
You can't meet half way on this matter you state you want to be compensated it's
structured for that to be taken care that's what the point of the contract was but if a minor
thing of not getting your way completely is what is the underlining issue it's like Donald
trump saying here take this money oh na I don't want because it's from Citizens bank liked
there is no reasoning with you and clear
Russell Shippee
No again Jr there is no dates and donald trump would never sign that contract.. Basical it
is a get out of debtors jail for free card. READ it
Jr Hepburn
And talking to you on this is like beating a dead horse I see that, that's very clear and it's
more clear.
Lol I told you I was on the phone and got your issues structured to be taken care of you
want to Sue Andrew and Matie you have a personal beef with them

And you keep coming to me like I have this money and I sat here and mastermind this
whole thing
Russell Shippee
Jr I sent both contracts to my attorney and he called me laughing No I do not want to sue
anyone but each of them and you are vendetta motion pictures and that is who I did the
work for. See it is easier to get my money if there is 3 people on the hook . Again this is
not personal it is called wise business moves.. No Jr again you are wrong I do not think
you have the money do I think you will sure. Also I have been telling you to speak on the
phone and you will not.... So you are reading more in to what is being said then you need
to ... But again you choose to not talk to me
Jr Hepburn
Time to get a new lawyer I did the same mine saw nothing wrong with it...2 things you
don't trust me that I will hold up my end up of the bargain that's clear and don't say it's not
and second you don't think this movie will be filmed and that's fact I can see...and yeh you
throw the lawsuit word out freely
Jr Hepburn
I'm going to wrap up my last two shows and be back after
Russell Shippee
Neve one time did I say lawsuit you have said it at least 6 times and I can show you where
not one time have I said any such words
I think you need to call me cause when 2 people can not talk it means something is not
right..
So I will look forwards to a phone call cause I know you and I have no issues and you only
would tell me the truth so I have no reason to think otherwise.
Russell Shippee
Also I know the movie will be filmed and but it could take 2 years and I do not think it is fair
for me to not be paid and if I have to wait 2 years then there are interest. Our agreement
was I will continue to get 140.00 a week payments then when the movie was
bought/funded I would get pay from it to clear balance .. Again never did I say anything
about you it is about the contract and I am telling you this contract is the dumbest contract
in the world... It is lacking the key elements and is 100% set to protect vendetta motion
pictures not any thing in it for me but words of a future payout that can happen between
sept 2014 and sept 2000000000000 who knows
This is not about you and I it is about wrong and right and protection and making the right
moves.
Russell Shippee
So I hope you think about what I said and you call me.

Please you do not know me and anyone in the Mortgage industry will tell you I am an very easy person to deal and did my job at a very successful rate.

Fun you try to say these peoples names as you know them but, you do not. 

This is the Same person JR Hepburn Hidding behind again another fake name.

Fun how you are attacking me about my  background but a guy like Andre Lamerique. aka Jr Hepburn you think is a role model ... So funny

Google Him.. 

I guess if I used a fake name so i could hid my background I would be a good guy in your eyes as this is what you are saying.

Also do not talk as you know me, as you do not. If you did you would say your name and tell the readers how and where we met or worked together.

all these attacks are smae person

AUTHOR: RussellShippee - ()

First off I have never hidden my Past and all Parties you mention had full disclouser on my past as any other Jobs I ever held.

 Again I do have a background but, it did not have anything to do with Why you guys did not pay my company the full amount that was owed. Again I am sorry that this happen but, I will not be bullied or blackmailed into being silent.

Yes, I was paid some money but, as you can see they still owe me money.AS you said yourself look at the contracts. So until they pay me the rest this will move in to the court room.

 

Again,  you had behind a fake name and attack me. 

 

We will be seeing you  in Court and I only refer to my attoney in response to a posted that was stateing that i need to get an attorney.

Again I am sorry for my past but, as I stated that does not give anyone the right to steal or Blackmail another person.

not at all surprised

AUTHOR: Anonymous - ()

My affliation with the party in here is something I will keep under the rug. Reading this is not shocking but I'm really a bit lost at my words right now. Not many know Mr. Shippee, but in my opinion he has a very explosive side to him, in the mortgage industry it is known all to well. My belief is that  if John, Joe or even the  underwriter at the time Lori knew some of the things here 23 arresst and even a new charge he wouldn't have been in the industry at all. Reading through these post one thing does stand out Mr. Shippee does contradict himself, bottom below it says I will see them in court, and then back to his lawyer. Now it is contact him. It all doesn't make sense, one minute they didn't pay, next minute they did, go back to the contract  it should wrap this up. Honestly this is None of my business just chiming in, after this link was brought to my attention as the conversation regarding Bill's incident with Shippee has reemerged I have to say I'm not surprised by the erradic course of behavior. This criminal stuff just has me  dumbfounded, and show you really don't know people. I'm sure Joe and John will be even more bewildered by this.

I regret now that I broke any laws when I was younger

AUTHOR: RussellShippee - ()

I am sorry that I was not an upstanding person when I was younger. Yes everything they say here is correct about my background as far as arrests.

Any recent charges all stem from 2007 and older. I have paid for any of my past mistakes. The current Probation is do to money I owed and did not pay off so to satifiy the debt I was placed on probation to make sure the monies are paid. Once all monies are paid I will be released from probation we are expecting that to be the case in next 4-6 months.

I am not under any type of investigation and I run an great company. That works with tons of small business and give them commercial grade work. I have never baited and switched anyone nor have I black mail anyone.. I just did like all major business do. Should you stop paying you bill befor it is paid off I suspended my services as soon as they make payments they will regain control of the accounts. Same as when I do not pay my cell phone bill sprint suspends it. I do not then scream they are blackmailing me.

So if trying to run a business and improve my life makes me a scammer or a con and by treating my clients as friends I guess this makes me a con. I have worked hard for over 7yrs build up my company and my name and never have I ever had a issue like I have here. Look and see ask my clients email them from my company page see the response you get. They will be all positive.

What you need to look at is you have one person that is trying to black mail another with his background and to make me go away. I will not back down I am owed a lot of money and did alot of work.

So again I am sorry for my past but, that does not give anyone the right to try to steal or take advantage of another due to thier background. Again please google all parties and I think you will see that this is like calling the pot calling the kettle Black.

The point they do not want you to look at is that I am owed money by Vendetta and I will deal with this in the cout when we serve all 3 with the notice to appear. So for now I will again say sorry for the fack I was a butt head when I was younger and sorry I broke the law.

Here is some of our work this is our potfilio we have been busy and have not updated it in a minute but look and tell me how I am a scam artist..... Also look at my Face book page my rates are all over it.. Same with my twitter....

Again I hope you see throuhg the smoke and understand why they focus on my past and not talk about the real issue why they stopped paying.... Sorry for any typos as I am on my cell and this is not the biggest screen to type on...

My RS Studio /Boost Media Marketing Experience

AUTHOR: Mike - ()

I've been using the services of Russell Shippee at RS Studio for work I needed done and I have also acquired the assistance of Boost Media Marketing in promoting and marketing products from my catalogue. I first used RS Studio in 2011 and was absolutely starting up my business. I had NO budget. I was able to get my business off the ground because Russell did the work for me with NO budget, with the understanding that I would use him when I needed his services in the future. He enabled me to make money which I still continue to do, due to that initial boost he gave my business. I am able to not only begin to pay for services now, but because of my tenure using him and sticking to my word, Mr. Shippee also maintains my website for zero dollars (and he custom built my site)

I cannot believe he'd do this thing depicted in this article because he wouldn't extort. I met him face to face a year AFTER he did my first promo design for FREE and have gotten to know how he works pretty well. I sent him a lot of customers and not once did any of them complain about anything remotely similar to the description in this article. Shame on the organization that has posted this. You are attempting to put out of business someone who is helping a lot of us entrepreneurs who are from the bottom, that don't have loans or budgets to help us launch our companies. This is a tragedy for many of us who are trying to keep up with the fast pace of our respective industries and are struggling to keep them in the black. There's no company I know with competitive pricing like RS & Boost. PAY YOUR BILL and don't ruin this resource for the rest of us by slandering him like this.

your Blog I would love to read it

AUTHOR: RussellShippee - ()

Art and Freelancer you both make claims and yet not one of you post any link to a personal page or to your blog where you say this subject has been a hot topic. Please share this link so all parties can see this great blog where you guys talk about issues of the day.

Second  I am posting comments you are right. I do it cause the other company said a lot of things that we as a companyfeel need to addrss. Again  we did post a report about them and that is our right to do. We did not slander or tell anything that can not be proven with documentation.  Unlike the above claims. I am glad that you need to come to the rescue of the graphic designer reputation. Sir my reputation is very very solid and I never had to deal with this issue ever. 

As far as your claim about the agreement I had it was again this..... pay me me a base pay... I will give you what work you ask for as long as  you payme  and we will bill the  final bill when the work Iis completed. The client and I had an understanding and know my fees and knows the hours I worked and got every and anything they requested . So for you to sit there and try to say I am a bad company is in my opinion wrong.

Also in the Usa troll means to seek out people in need or despair and offer them a service... an other word would be like ambulance chasrr. Nothing personal about you but in the USA that is a word we us . Maybe in India you do not use this word as we do. I did not mean u are a creature living under abridge.

ART and FREELANCER

AUTHOR: A friend to both - ()

ART AND FREELANCER I think based on your your post you are hoping to find a PAYDAY which is cool but so wrong on how you are trying to do it.  To do it by trying to claim that you see the writing on the wall is so wrong you see nothing as you know nothing at all about either of the companies . Or to talk bad about someone you have no clue about as you do not know either of these companies.  So stop and sit this iione out or read a little more  so you can see the story from an 3rd party who knows both of these companies.

 

Never did RS say he did not get paid. I think what I read is he was paid a base pay with the promise of a future payout  for his work that  he would have to do to get the film to the next level so the film could be picked up.

I also see where  Vendetta stated they owed him money  and that RS was not happy with the offer. 

 I can see how this started. One person feeling like he was not going to get paid the other person trying to pay but his money ran out then trying  what he could to get the money but, not able to meet the terms that need to be met. Then cause I know them both they both are hot headed and do not hold back when feeling attacked.

 It is very sad as both of these people are very very talented.  So For you guys to try to talk bad about RS is very wrong as I hate to say he had more talent them most companies out there and could do almost everything a company needed from Graphics, web site  developement, Seo and video you name it they could do it.

Vendetta was willing to work side by side and market a vewry good script and what these two teams did was amazing  and the hype they built and the buzz they created was like no other indie movie has seen.  So sad this happen.   

 

 Since they could not come to an agreement before the friendship fell apart  Both sides lost  Vendetta the art work and website and marketing that RS was doing such an awesome job with and no one can say that is not true. RS lost money and time  and a  client that at one time was a friend that they can never get back. The biggest lost was a good friendship that was destroyed due the lack of converstaion and a cool headed person trying to help fix this.

 

  I know both parties personally  and can see how this feud started and blew up.  What you two do not know is the friendship and the hours that the two main people worked together and the relationship and trust they both had for each other. 

 

This is a very bad turn of events for both of them. Jr has not gotten a bad name and has lost respect and friends and Russ lost business and respect. All over a matter that could have been resolved very easy.   Both of them speak out of madness and with out thinking of the out come or what it makes each other look like. They both want to make it look like they were right at no matter the cost.  

I am not saying who was at wrong or right   as both of them made mistakes and both of them bashed the other just as bad. Both of them posted negative information about the other. Both of them feel betrayed. 

So Art  and Freelancer and every other party that is not involved in this matter  stop trying to add fuel to this fire. 

 

Also  art and freelancer  I think you are just trying to get a pay check and do not really care about designers rep you care about getting money that is it and if it means you bash or try to play on the feelings of Vendetta then you will. .

I also google bad reports about designers and do not see any where that is says people think bad about grahic designers in the USA . That maybe the case over seas or in india  but, not here in the USA most designers here have a good reputation.  The only reason I bring up over seas is I look at the links given and they are for a website that finds jobs for overseas workers is that not the case? I mean 1 out of 30 was a US Citizen that is what  I saw.My 2 cents worth 

 Wish you the best

REPORT BY VENDETTA MOTION PICTURES (ANDRE JUNIOR LAMERIQUE AKA JR HEPBURN) IS FALSE

AUTHOR: vanbrockmann - ()

My experience with working with RS Studio, is that they have been very straight forward with their work. They present their designs to clients very well. Especially, with me I have my own website that I've designed and looked at the websites they designed and I'm all my shocked and amazed with their work. Made my website looking like it was done by an unprofessional web designer. RS Studio has been nothing but nice with me. Vendetta Motion Pictures,LLC is not an LLC due to the company not having enough going in yet alone going out. Vendetta Motion Pictures is nothing but partnership company in which had no contracts ever formed or signed by the original founders. RS Studio is however a 100% bonafide certified company. I've seen the many projects that RS Studio have been working on and I am quite impressed by what they have done for their clients. I highly recommend RS Studio for anyone looking to have posters designed or websites designed.

ART IS CORRECT

AUTHOR: Freelancer Technology - ()

Troll comment is very childish I concur with Art. In context of Rs clear claim of victim, the only reason the discussion in our blog surfaced was due to the companies own rip off report posted on August 25 and August 26 and after further resarch it was a topic discussion by the admin of our blog and as a group we've determined it is clear the claim by the designer doesn't make any sense. As employing several designers myself I've never seen anyone partake any work for a year or two for free, the writing is on the wall. Lets all act professional, rip off is not the court of law, and honestly to be frank sir you are making your fellow industry professionals look bad. If you're in the right then act as so, from what I see you are the only one here commenting, and Vendetta Films has taken the high road. Art keep up the good work, talk tomorrow, same blog same time.

RSSTUDIO did not place this  please read.. The client you are trying to say is  so, good is the one who made a false claim about our company. RSSTUDIO  has worked very very hard to build and to make sure we keep our repurtaion very good. We have never had a claim like this in 10 years.

Sir for you to try to make it look as we did anything wrong is why we are not happy with your post. if you were in our shoes and a company owed you 26k or more and then posted lies about  your company that you worked so hard to build would you not stand up and fight?

 

Should I lie down and say go ahead rob me and the ruin my company name cause I do not want to give other designers a bad name.  If i saw this post and it was about you I would most likely read the full post and all Rebuttals and then do so research before I offered my services or gave any feedback making it look like an other design company did anything wrong.

I've never been called by a professional in any industry a troll especially one as prestigous as ours.

I must also make aware this issue wouldn't have been brought to my attention and many others on our Morning blog yesterday if the graphic business in question hadn't placed this on such a childish place like rip off. We do our best to scout issues by graphic designers and try to repair the damage done. Even a blind man could see the clear game this graphic business is playing.

Why RS STUDIO rejected the 2 contracts

AUTHOR: RussellShippee - ()

They stated in this  post that "As information requested was not produced by RS Studio, weekly payments by Vendetta Motion Pictures LLC to RS Studio stopped.  Vendetta Motion Pictures LLC presented two written contracts to RS Studio in order to clarify the relationship"

 

First off I never was asked for any tax documents nor  any kind of an accounting of past or future payments by Vendeta Motion Pictures LLC , Andre Lamerique. aka Jr Hepburn, Marie Brandt or Andrew Adler.  It was not until things went south that his lawyer sent to my attorny that i was looking to retain  the request for w-9 form and accounting of work  I did  and what I was paid.  We never refused to provide this to them.

 

 

 

What happen is JR AKA Andre Lamerique contacted me and told me that they needed to cut the marketing budget and was going to have to cut it in half. I asked him are you sure about this as we have come along way and to stop now at this time did not make sense. He said i am not saying we will end marketing just cut it in half he will pay me 70.00 a week . I said okay but, I need to understand how I collect the money that is owed to me.   

 

JR aka. Andre Lamerique then told me to give him an amount I thought was fair. So in my head I knew any amount I told him was going to be to much and he and I always talked about my cost and fees and he knows the going rates as I have told him many times. I also have them posted on my facebook page and I repost these very often.So I figured I would allow him to give me a rate based off what he felt he could afford and I told him this and said if there is any issues with his rate I would let him know and counter this rate.

So sometime goes by and I do not see the 70.00 weekly payment at all  and I do not see a contract so i started asking question where we stand and was told not to worry that he is taking care of it.

So I waited still no 70.00 payment, then he email me the contract and i reviewed it.

   4 areas stood out as off to me

1) The amount 20,000

2) they wanted me to release the work before I got paid

3) There was no dates as to when or how they would pay me just that if I did what they asked I would get a 250.00 good faith payment.

4) contract start off as debt was  Vendetta Motion Pictures responsibilty but, at in in small print at very bottom it states if the movie is not made Vendetta Motion Pictures is not responsible for paying RS STUDIo but Andre Lamerique. aka Jr Hepburn is

 

So At this time in a very business like manner I informed Andre Lamerique. aka Jr Hepburn that this will not work and why i felt it was not going to work and what we needed to wrap this up.

He said fine I will talk to them and see what we need to do....  More time whent by still no 70.00 payment  and I started to feel like I was being played by these people.

 

So I gave them a deadline to get me a contract or I will look in to turning this over to an lawyer as i felt like this was going no where and I was not even getting the 70.00 as told.

 

He then came up with a 2nd contract that looked like all he did was change the name from vendetta to Andre Lamerique. aka Jr Hepburn . This is when it started to get strange cause I did the work for Vendetta and I told him i do not understand why the company is not on this contract... That is when he started to act strange and started to make it seem like what I was doing was cause I did not trust him and that i was wanting to sue his partners Marie Brandt or Andrew Adler. I never said that I want to sue anyone I wanted to just be paid but also be protected by the law.

 

I am sorry that this turned out bad but I would not do anything different at all.

RS STUDIO GRAPHIC SUGGESTION

AUTHOR: Pentagram - ()

By far the truly most benign circumstance I've ever encountered within our field. A clear reason why our industry has a lack of trust worldwide. From the outline displayed by the graphic studio in question if by admission you are running a legitimate business why result in social media tactics, and not attend the legal routes? To even go a step further the company above have you considered moving forward with another designer? This is not something at all portrayed by everyone within our field, and by clearly reading between the lines if this graphic design had a leg to stand on they would've immediately hired counsel and not go this road of social media piracy which in clear injuction destroyed any credible they might've had. Again to the company in question please let us know if you have moved forward with another designer?

Part 3 of the claims that Vendeta Motion Pictures LLC , Andre Lamerique. aka Jr Hepburn, Marie Brandt and Andrew Adler. have made against RS STUDIO /RUSSELL SHIPPEE

AUTHOR: RussellShippee - ()

Vendeta Motion Pictures LLC , Andre Lamerique. aka Jr Hepburn, Marie Brandt and Andrew Adler claim the following in this report 


Thereafter, Russell Shippee wrote many threatening statements to Vendetta Motion Pictures.  For example:  "as I told you, you have 24 hours .... I will destroy you on social media, that's my backyard; you don't know who you are f---ing with."  "After the 24 hours you are f---ing done."  "You(r) a*s is done I will f--k you harder then you will know."  Mr. Shippee has since taken control of the Blue Suede website, locking Vendetta Motion Pictures out of the website.

I will address about the website  first  then the other will follow. 

Vendeta Motion Pictures LLC , Andre Lamerique. aka Jr Hepburn, Marie Brandt and Andrew Adlerclaim the following in this report 

Mr. Shippee has since taken control of the Blue Suede website, locking Vendetta Motion Pictures out of the website.

Number one I payed for everything out of my pocket all names and hosting are in my company name and they did not pay me for the site as of yet. The 140.00  a week was for my time and we had an understanding that the rest would be paid at time of funding of the film. Or I will allow them to continue to make the payments of 140 till balance is paid in full then at that time I would turn over the full rights of all work until then I will maintain ownership. So since I own the domain and the current design and the code and I came up with all concepts for the designs I am the rightful owner till said company pays me in full....

Again if you go out and buy a car and stop paying you will lose the car. If you order services for cABLE AND YOU SAY I THINK I PAID YOU ENOUGH THET SUSPEND YOUR SERVICES. That is all I did as if you goto www.bluesuedemovie.com   you will see that I stated this right on the page.  Just cause I paid papa johns money in the past does not mean I get my pizza for free.. This is what Vendeta Motion Pictures LLC , Andre Lamerique. aka Jr Hepburn, Marie Brandt and Andrew Adler want.....

This is what is posted to the page of www.bluesuedemovie.com

At this time we request the company to Cease and Desist with use of any of the videos, websites, logos, designs, and any or all artwork we hold copyrights on Blue Suede and Killing Khan. When all debt is paid in full we will transfer ownership to you as is normal procedures.Rsstudio/RussellShippee is pursuing legal actions against all parties involved. I am sorry to all the people involved if you need any questions answered please feel free to call me at 617-461-3477 I will also provide you with the attorney of record for this matter.

My Response to allegation 2

AUTHOR: RussellShippee - ()

Vendeta Motion Pictures LLC , Andre Lamerique. aka Jr Hepburn, Marie Brandt and Andrew Adler claim

RS Studio has refused to provide any information or accounting of how it arrived at that figure.  Depending on the day, and despite the fact that Mr. Shippee has done no further work for Vendetta, he has claimed the debt is $20,000, also $24,000 also $26,000 as well as $32,000.  It seems that he cannot figure out his own accounting, yet demands we paying him.  

 

Here is proof  that was not the case....

Jr Hepburn
You said more then necessary no worries
If u had a figure in mind from jump like I asked you should've came out and said it now I'm
over doing my part and I'm being slapped in the face whatever man it's all good
Russell Shippee
I told u to come up with a fair number and if I felt it was not correct I would make
adjustments... again my concerns vendetta is not tied to this as I did the work for the
company 2 no dates 3 turning rights over eith out full payments. JR this business I am not
mad at u. You are who I have to talk to give me contact info for rebecca and I will tell them
what I feel and also have been advised about.

 

This is taken from messages date on Aug 7th. If you email me I will provide you with the email chain in PDF straight from Gmail.


Yes, I was asked what do they owe RSSTUDIO but, because I was a part of a team.  I want to give them an oppertunity to come up with a fair dollar amount.  I told Andre Lamerique. aka Jr Hepburn that I would leave it up to them( Vendeta Motion Pictures LLC , Andre Lamerique. aka Jr Hepburn, Marie Brandt and Andrew Adler.)  I knew they had a small budget and Andre Lamerique. aka Jr Hepburn and I have always talked about my costs  for my services. 

 

 Vendeta Motion Pictures LLC , Andre Lamerique. aka Jr Hepburn, Marie Brandt and Andrew Adler claim this 

he has claimed the debt is $20,000, also $24,000 also $26,000 as well as $32,000.  It seems that he cannot figure out his own accounting, yet demands we paying him.  

My Response to this is as follows 

This is not the case  here is  excert from the contract given to me  Where Vendeta Motion Pictures LLC , Andre Lamerique. aka Jr Hepburn, Marie Brandt and Andrew Adler made the 1st offer of $20,000.

After reviewing the contract and doing basic math and still having personal feelings and wanting to make this fair for all I told Andre Lamerique. aka Jr Hepburn that I felt we were close and I thought $26,000 would wrap this up as far as the money goes. Just like I stated I would in the above message from gmail.

The $24.000 came in to play cause Andre Lamerique. aka Jr Hepburn told me he did not think they would appove 26,000 this conversation happen on the phone 

The $32,000 came from a post I place trying to show that if I took my lowest rate of $25.00 an hour and times that by the lowest amount of hours I and my team worked  it would come out to $32,000 in fees  so i was trying to show how I was being very fair and charging below the value I could get.

Response to First Claim in the report that was filed.

AUTHOR: RussellShippee - ()

They Say " After several months of payments for services rendered, Vendetta sought an accounting invoice from RS Studio (regarding work performed, money paid and billing information as none had been provided by the Studio). " 

Here is a little proof that this is incorrect and they knew they owed me. See the Yellow Highlights areas to see that this is not true.

Russell Shippee
Bro do we really want to go down like this?
you pay a person who did nothing for you 13k I gave you over 9 months and paid out money to
support you...and you think my times is only worth 7k more.. I will bite my nose to spite my face
before I am taken advantage of.
Today
Russell Shippee
I think we need to talk...please call me in the morning.
Jr Hepburn
#1 thats not my money thats what they agreed to give us.... And your acting as if its money
coming out of my pocket thats what was approved its not my descision, your coming at me
as if I have the money in a vault and said this is what I've come to agreed to, and secondly
to whole point of me going to them and asking them for the money to ensure your taking
care of now in case after all said and done we are in the red you atleast were taken care
of...If my efforts are not appreciated thats fine...
Russell Shippee
Jr all need to talk. I want to have this wrap up by friday...
Jr Hepburn
It's cool I'll talk to them in the am and try to figure it out and hopefully be the end of it and
we all can move on give u an update tomorrow Russell thank you
Russell Shippee
Jr I need dates you have the the contract with distrubution saying you are shooting so you
have projected date
With outthem I can not sign nor will I turn over the rights till I am paid in full. my attorney
has already stated that signing an open contract was a big big red flag . By doing that
there is no recourse for me cause if the movie never gets shot then I never get paid .

understand I gave u 9 months of work and gave you a quilty product that made
vendettas film come to life. I supported the company and did what ever the company
needed done.
Did u even read the contract? You should and then send it to 3 business people and ask
them what they think.
I could have only ask for the same respect I gave the company . It is sad

Jr Hepburn
You said more then necessary no worries
If u had a figure in mind from jump like I asked you should've came out and said it now I'm
over doing my part and I'm being slapped in the face whatever man it's all good
Russell Shippee

Jr Hepburn
No worries
Today
Jr Hepburn
Alexa asked if u can contact her regarding her video
Russell Shippee

Jr Hepburn
Must've been an old message


Jr Hepburn
Well good news is found middle ground to get this squared by tomorrow it's unfortunate
you feel that I'm out to screw you but that's been the mantra for a month now
Russell Shippee
No Jr you are wrong about that... But your friends are cause to do what they are doing is
very wrong to make it look as I did not work for vendetta is so wrong in 100 ways.
Jr Hepburn
That's not the case number two they aren't my friends, number two it's to ensure you
receive your money in the end everyone knows you worked for vendetta check the imdb
it's you're name for me to be able to get them to give me the funds to fulfill agreement so
you're services are paid in full this is the way they want it done not vendetta not us...When
people with that much money invests begin hearing the word lawsuit it doesn't boad to well
Russell Shippee
Jr again the contract should and needs to be with vendetta motion pictures and not you...
See I worked for and with vendetta motion pictures. When you hired me you and andrew
and maria all where owners of vendetta you want to them remember to get the okay to the
weekly payments. So now to remove vendetta from the contract will not work.... please
look at all the work you see the logo?
Russell Shippee
Per my attorney the distribution company will give vendetta the funds and vendetta will pay
me. See distribution will not give Jr Funds cause you acting as a contractor so my attorney
advised me to have the contract done as it should be done. See andrew and maria owe
me just as much as you do.. The red flags are company missing the dates of distribution of
funds. The amount and the release of copyright to vendetta..
Jr Hepburn
The verbal agreement was between you and I and I never went to Marie to get the money
well I guess back to square one..Just have to figure something else out to resolve this
return to monthly payments suspend all activity until I pay you fully for the amount you're
owed. That's one like they won't budge on.
Russell Shippee
Jr you are incorrect but if that is what you need to say then that fine... So you forgot how
you told me that day you had to talk to your partners and you came back to me and said
that you and your partners talked and you agreed on 140 a week for Also the work was for
vendetta motion pictures if not why is the logo all over everything why did I build a new
website for vendetta if not then why was I working with Maria and have all the emails to
show you that where she and I talk about the work and the relationship of vendetta and
the 3 of you and where she told me how grateful she was to have me on her team and
working with the company. I have Andrew paying me and I have the emails from him
saying that he is happy of all the work I did for the company... So you understand all 3 of
you owe me this money not just you Jr....
Jr Hepburn
And then you don't further understand the position we are in is that they don't want the
contract put in that manner like I said we are back to square one my hands are tied if you
want to do an agreement to monthly payments for balanced owed to you that's not a
problem as it stands I can't get that approved my hands are tied
Russell Shippee
I think you should allow my attorney talk to them..
cause what you are doing is not 100% above board.. they are trying release vendetta from
this debt and that is who I was working with...See I did just as much work as everyone
involved and should be compensated for my work that vendetta motion pictures employed
me to do.
Jr Hepburn
I'll draw up contract myself for the monthly payments to resolve this I'll tell them forget it
can't come to agreement with the terms required
Russell Shippee
No I want an agreement from vendetta motion pictures
Jr Hepburn
You want to be compensated and I've worked hard to ensure you be compansated when
we start shooting and that's not still good enough with the terms that was asked for..Think
it over the weekend I have to head back to work
Russell Shippee
Also the terms required **** What they gave me was a worthless piece of paper that a
dummy would have to sign.. Not trying to be rude but that was a joke and now I have 2
contracts now 1 with vendetta name and then 1 with your name only but the same terms
Jr Hepburn
You asked for it to be either or looking at the situation this is the way they felt more
comfortable with proceedings again it's not my money it's not up to me.
I'm heading back to work I've already spent half the day discussing this on the phone
earlier thinking those issues from last night was the only issue, and found a way to get that

done. But it is what it is I'll send the email when I get out to forget the whole thing.
Russell Shippee
Jr this is not personal it is now 100% business as you can not talk to me it no longer
personal it has become business. I understand what you want to do and I thank you but I
have to make sure that I am protected. Saying that it is paid on a set milestone with the
film means nothing as if you never get there I am screwed I need a date and at that time if
not paid I have the rights to seek compensation and relief. See I Tried to work with you
and I was very nice I though letting you pay me weekly and then with an exit game of
being made solid when the movie started. I am not trying to be a jerk here. then they
basicly said you will suspend all work and relationship with RSSTUDIo meaning I built up
the whole look of vendetta and they are going to tell you to --Our suggestion is if this
becomes an overwhelming issue to suspend all activity regarding using RS Studio's
marketing services until the outstanding balance is paid in full, per the attached contract.
Or until weekly payments have been made, and paid in full.
Russell Shippee
Jr I kept my promise to vendetta and I did as vendetta asked and did 95% as vendetta
wanted or better then vendetta asked for. I never disappeared on vendetta I was online for
vendetta 100% of the time no matter it was 2am or 2pm I was there to help vendetta. I
gave the company everything they asked for. Now I feel it is vendettas turn to do the
same.
Russell Shippee
Jr you need to understand this is not going away.. I am owed money and the contract has
to be up to legal standards for me and My attorney. That requires dates of disbursements
an procedures for failing to meet you agreement should it happen. I am doing everything I
can to be civil here ... Please understand I want to help you not harm you I have been a
100% stand up guy for vendetta and always no matter what looked out for the company
and always tried to keep vendetta out of trouble
Jr Hepburn
You can't meet half way on this matter you state you want to be compensated it's
structured for that to be taken care that's what the point of the contract was but if a minor
thing of not getting your way completely is what is the underlining issue it's like Donald
trump saying here take this money oh na I don't want because it's from Citizens bank liked
there is no reasoning with you and clear
Russell Shippee
No again Jr there is no dates and donald trump would never sign that contract.. Basical it
is a get out of debtors jail for free card. READ it
Jr Hepburn
And talking to you on this is like beating a dead horse I see that, that's very clear and it's
more clear.
Lol I told you I was on the phone and got your issues structured to be taken care of you
want to Sue Andrew and Matie you have a personal beef with them

And you keep coming to me like I have this money and I sat here and mastermind this
whole thing
Russell Shippee
Jr I sent both contracts to my attorney and he called me laughing No I do not want to sue
anyone but each of them and you are vendetta motion pictures and that is who I did the
work for. See it is easier to get my money if there is 3 people on the hook . Again this is
not personal it is called wise business moves.. No Jr again you are wrong I do not think
you have the money do I think you will sure. Also I have been telling you to speak on the
phone and you will not.... So you are reading more in to what is being said then you need
to ... But again you choose to not talk to me
Jr Hepburn
Time to get a new lawyer I did the same mine saw nothing wrong with it...2 things you
don't trust me that I will hold up my end up of the bargain that's clear and don't say it's not
and second you don't think this movie will be filmed and that's fact I can see...and yeh you
throw the lawsuit word out freely
Jr Hepburn
I'm going to wrap up my last two shows and be back after
Russell Shippee
Neve one time did I say lawsuit you have said it at least 6 times and I can show you where
not one time have I said any such words
I think you need to call me cause when 2 people can not talk it means something is not
right..
So I will look forwards to a phone call cause I know you and I have no issues and you only
would tell me the truth so I have no reason to think otherwise.
Russell Shippee
Also I know the movie will be filmed and but it could take 2 years and I do not think it is fair
for me to not be paid and if I have to wait 2 years then there are interest. Our agreement
was I will continue to get 140.00 a week payments then when the movie was
bought/funded I would get pay from it to clear balance .. Again never did I say anything
about you it is about the contract and I am telling you this contract is the dumbest contract
in the world... It is lacking the key elements and is 100% set to protect vendetta motion
pictures not any thing in it for me but words of a future payout that can happen between
sept 2014 and sept 2000000000000 who knows
This is not about you and I it is about wrong and right and protection and making the right
moves.
Russell Shippee
So I hope you think about what I said and you call me.
