Charles Clemmons

Charles Clemmons

Major player! I worked for him in October, 2005. He
screwed over the whole crew ..about 10 people for a
TV-pilot. I have since seen his name with complaints
and warnings for him on craigslist. So I put an ad out
myself on craigs to collect people whos been screwed
to sew him. Someone else then collected names and took
it to the Labor Department, and i dont know what has
happened. It looks like hes been screwing over at
least 50 people!

Here are the 2 addresses he gave me (Eucalyptus
address was on the bounced check):

RE: Looking for Urban Feature Scripts ASAP (CHARLES CLEMMONS)

The return of CHARLES CLEMMONS, con man and producing rip off artist.

He is now asking writers to submit material without any protection under the ASAP urgency guise.

Change careers Charles Clemmons, everybody knows you are an unethical mover and shaker and now you are using Craigslist to steal material from writers (after stiffing technicians on your lame music videos).

It's a real small town and you are gonna have to change your name if you want to make a living and get ahead in production. If you've been stiffed by Charles contact both Jago Production and Maverick Entertainment to inform them about about his production practices.

I worked on "My Jumpmans" hip hop video by the artist Tony Tig which Charles Clemmons produced and directed. We were a very hard working team who dedicated ourselves to making this video. No one I have talked to from our crew has been paid. Charles Clemmons needs to be brought to justice and prevented from taking advantage of any other future crew members.

I think he screwed more than way more than 50 people. We were supposed to be on a shoot sometime in 2005, too. There were over 20 people (crews and casts) and Charles Clemmons never show up.
I didn't know it was he's production, as I was hired by the 1st AD, which never show up, either.
It was good that the movie never happened, I heard that people worked and never get paid.

Charles hired me out for a video two months ago and neither I nor my Gaffer, Grip, or Steadi-op were paid.

Charles deserves to do some hard time for being an F*****G low life.

Funny enough though, I still have all the footage from the shoot. He was given the chance to pay in order to receive his footage and procrastinated on it for a month.

Following that month, I told him that the fees due are now double that of the prior amount, no comment from the kid since. =)

@homeofthegiants - The TV pilot Consider My Life was not written by Charles Clemmons. The writer was going to come on board the project. Exactly what ideas did he steal from you? As I saw it, it was a high school teen-drama. If he supposedly stole ideas from you, then I guess, Beverly Hills 90210, One Tree Hill, The Life of an American Teenager, etc. all stole from you. Did you write a script for the show? Probably not.

Charles Clemmons is a great director!

I have worked with Charles Clemmons and allowed him to live with me for 2 years because I thought he was a kid down on his luck with a bad name following him. Myself and my wife took care of him when he did not have nothing and it is now sad and unfortunate that we must add to this blog but he has betrayed us, and our trust by cheating us out of money and stealing our treatment and concepts. We know first hand everything that is on this blog is true about him and his evil ways. He has stole money from investors, cheated people out of money includeing me and the fact that he is still working in LA surprises me. I know their are people looking for him right now for cheating them out of music videos and edits. Charles is a person that you think is kind and good hearted until his dagger of pure un ethical business practices and cunning ways ruin your reputation and good of your company. He is not creative and he has stolen so much material and concepts from people that its un real, I Wish I never met charles and I would not recommend anyone give him money or trust him to pay you after a production. He is a liar, a cheat and people like him gives this business a terrible name. The email name he uses is Scott Perterson from a yahoo account and if you trust him I wish you luck, do not do anything with him without a written contract and that won't help because he signs stuff all the time and still do bullshit after. Do not be a victim to this Director and may this business of entertainment strive without people like him. This person on this blog named EMAN is charles making positive remarkes of his self and I know it because that's what his family calls him. Dude you are a discrace to this business and I hope everything you touch fail and never get picked up by anyone ever, you have cheated so many people and did it on purpose, you really should be in jail for the rest of your life. God bless you with guilt forvever !!!
