A firm warning for anyone who is considering working for an individual called Peter Wilson (also known as “Vladimir Wilson“). Nouveau Media is a company he set up to make a pilot show (“Students”) which is now in the process of liquidation, having failed to pay numerous freelancers who worked on the production.
It seems that Mr Wilson is now going to walk away from his commitments on this one but caution should be exercised by all freelancers if he decides to set up under a new name and have another go in the future, which apparently is his plan.
With his record, it is probably best all round if he detached himself from any media ventures in the future.
**EDIT It appears that the company has not been liquidated but many freelancers still remain unpaid**
