Yeap! I'm currently managing myself for my career. Not under certain agency anymore. It's like doing freelance now. Having freedom on choosing jobs.
The importance, no more percentage commission will be deducted on my upcoming payment. Yay! This is the best thing for me to celebrate. Coz all these while, our payments always have to be hold by my ex company agency for very long. Everytime, cash out was happening only once in a couple of months or might be extent till 3 or 4 months. The worse case for me was about 7 months. I don't know what they went to do on those money since the day they had collected from clients. By right, we shall get paid when the magazine shooting spread published for example. The excuse that I got from my ex agency mostly was the delayment from editors. So is it meaning that editors didn't do what should they have done?
So many different jobs we have done, but so tiny amount of the payment we got in the end. Of coz, it depends on how much of the paid job and how many percentage agency "sucks" as stated in the agreement. But what if I tell you about I still haven't getting a cent from my ex-agency which I've done my filming for a series of drama on December 2013? As I knew that the payment has fully paid to my ex-agency. How would you feel and what would you do if you were me?
I need no afraid to expose one of the ugly faces that I experienced. Coz this is the truth. I just feel like it's time for me to express them out. Coz there are so many things that I didn't dare to tell ppl for all these while. Scared of hurting ppl, scared of causing something bad, scared of bringing any negative consequence to any parties... Such thoughts have stopped me from doing so "silly" (Okay, I call it silly as saying something never filtered by brain. Coz it's Feeling, it's all about the Heart, nothing is doing with the brain for this.). So it's okay to tell. Just like we always say that it's okay to make mistake. As long as we learn the lesson and get improvement. Life still go on.
