The contract was with Artifice films Ltd
You can only pursue the party with which you had a contract. If that is Artifice then that is the company you are able to chase. It may be that they had their own agreement with the other parties involved in this matter but that does not mean you can chase them directly because your dispute is one of breach of contract which means you need a contract and as such can only sue the party who you had a contract with. You need to check whether the payment you are after was conditional on anything but if that is not the case then you would be able to pursue them for it. If you wish to make a claim you would be doing so by going to www.moneyclaim.gov.uk where you can fill out the necessary documentation online.
Thanks. What about compensation? The contract was for 6 weeks filming, and like I said, it was abruptly stopped without warning after 2 weeks. Would it be advisable to claim for as much as possible?
was there a notice period specified in it in case of termination?
