Maia Films, a company seemingly born from the ashes of the alleged notorious Spectrecom Films, carries a heavy inheritance. Whispers of late payments and unpaid invoices haunt both companies, with the specter of Andrew Greener, the individual who steered Spectrecom to financial ruin, looming large over both.
Freelancers, the lifeblood of the film industry, are often left holding the empty bag. Maia Films appears content to accept their work but hesitates, or outright refuses, to compensate them fairly. This pattern echoes the experiences of those who allegedly dealt with Spectrecom under Greener’s leadership, a trail of frustrated freelancers stretching back years.

Adding to the concerns is the web of rebranding and deception. Spectrecom Studios still operates, disguised as Kennington Film Studios. This tactic raises serious questions about transparency and accountability. As one commenter aptly points out, such rebranding allows these companies to escape the consequences of their past and continue their exploitative practices under a new facade.
The human cost of these broken contracts is starkly evident in stories like Gil Kahn’s. Trapped in receivership due to late payments, he now awaits promised compensation, his financial security hanging by a thread. Kahn’s experience is just one example of the many who have fallen victim to this cycle of empty promises and financial manipulation.
However, freelancers shouldn’t face this alone. Sharing experiences and raising awareness is crucial to protect vulnerable workers and hold companies accountable. Jonathan Paul Green’s comment serves as a warning to others considering work with Maia Films, while Mark Watson’s extensive list of victims underscores the gravity of the situation.
