Reelkandi.tv’s CEO is a Magician: Beware of Falling for his Tricks Pt4

Hugh Jackman The Prestige

Andi Super is a United Kingdom native featured on LinkedIn along with Reelkandi.tv. This section of CEO Andrew Super’s magic trick deals with the magician’s greatest moment during our flat rate business contract: The Prestige. “But you wouldn’t clap yet. Because making something disappear isn’t enough; you have to bring it back. That’s why every magic trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call ‘The Prestige’.”

Though Andrew Super brought nothing back (e.g. his ****, *****, etc.), he was still able to perform The Prestige for his magic trick. The Prestige perpetrated by Andrew Super was one part UK Andi and one part me (you’ll see).

The Turn Continued

February 27, 2013

The first payment on our flat fee contract was now seven days past due.

On February 27, 2013 at 4:02 pm, I asked another organization hosting the Reelkandi.tv video player this question:

[Deleted]:

could I have the name and email address for your contact at Reelkandi?

Thanks.

I wanted to reach another employee within Reelkandi.tv, another Reeelkandi.tv representative. I did not want to talk behind Andi Super’s back but I did want to speak with someone and get out the deleterious situation Andrew Super had created and was perpetuating.

On February 27, 2013 at 4:04 pm, the person in the other organization hosting the Reelkandi.tv video player sent this message:

Sure, I’ve copied Andrew onto the email

As you can imagine, I was not pleased to find out that their contact was Andrew Super.

On February 27, 2013 at 4:39 pm, I emailed the person in the other organization hosting the Reelkandi.tv video player this message:

[Deleted]:

“Sure, I’ve copied Andrew onto the email”

I wish you had not. I am having an issue with that Reelkandi employee.

Next time, just the name and the email address please. Thanks.

The Prestige

In three, two, one…

On February 27, 2013 4:40 pm, the person in the other organization hosting the Reelkandi.tv video player sent this message:

Oh sorry, he is the CEO and is the only contact I have.

It was a thunderclap in a turbulent sky.

I could not believe it.

The person I had been enduring all this “magic” from in Reelkandi.tv was the head of the organization.

I could not believe it. A CEO was attempting to change the elements of a contract after the first pay period had come and gone on that contract.

The CEO of Reelkandi.tv, the figurehead, the one everybody else looked up to for modus operandi, etiquette, proper business conduct, had tried to alter contract terms when payment was due and was stonewalling on paying funds that were owed. Some of his emails had been signed CEO but it had never clicked in my mind since: a.) the first email he sent me was signed by a different title and b.) I was more concerned with the messages in the emails than how they were signed.

At that moment I knew it was hopeless. I went on LinkedIn and confirmed the validity of the emailed statement. Andrew Super was (and is) the CEO of Reelkandi.tv.

Game over.

I had written emails that morning that I was going to send to Reelkand.tv politely asking for a new representative to be assigned to FilmBook’s account. After learning that Andi Super was in fact the CEO, I knew those emails were pointless to send, that the situation was pointless.

Andrew Super had won, I had lost. His legerdemain had been successful.

My own stupidity and lack of foresight my downfall.

Andi Super never responded to the forwarded message from the person in the other organization hosting the Reelkandi.tv video player.

I deleted the Reelkandi.tv video player from Filmbook that day.

March 1, 2013

The first payment on our flat fee contract was now nine days past due.

Remembering a good rule of thumb: not to get emotional about money, to maintain pose at all times, I emailed Mr. Super and the Reelkandi.tv embed employee one last time.

On March 1, 2013 at 12:49 am, I emailed Andi Super this message:

Mr. Super:

I would like to thank you for choosing FilmBook to advertise on. At this time I would like to formally discontinue the contract between our two organizations, effective immediately.

On March 1, 2013 at 2:49 am, I emailed Reelkandi.tv embed employee this message:

Mr. [Deleted]:

thank you for all of your assistance when I sought to get a hold of Mr. Super regarding Reelkand.tv’s past due payment to my organization. It was very much appreciated and I hope that I did not put you in a bad position. That was not my intent. I hope all goes well for you in your endeavors.

I received no response to these emails.

As you can see, Reelkandi.tv’s Andrew Super is not a magician to be taken lightly. Most CEOs would not dare perpetrate a magic trick like this but not Andi Super. Most CEOs care about their reputation and that of the organization they represent (e.g. the last two emails I sent to Reelkandi.tv on March 1, 2013). Andi Super is unlike other CEOs in that regard. He is something special. He is an practitioner of the black arts and Reelkandi.tv is the instrument through which he performs his craft.

Next week you will learn of the legacy of Andi Super’s magic trick on FilmBook.

Until then, two questions:

  • What do you think of Andrew Super’s magic trick? Is it one you would ever perform on a potential business partner?

Leave your thoughts on these two questions in the comment section below.

  • RW, I enjoy reading reading these, but I don’t enjoy reading about what happened to you. However, I almost always take money from advertisers upfront. There is no way to really go after advertisers over the internet, if things fall out of place. I only have one or two people who I will work for without payment in the pocket and I have known them for years; I have a long running business relationship with them.

    I am looking forward to the next episode, but there does not seem to be a happy ending at the end of this story.

    “However, I almost always take money from advertisers upfront”
    That is one of things I learned from The Magician.

    I am glad to hear you have been reading the series. The more people that do, the more that will not be tricked in the future.

    The ending of this story is one of hard business lessons learned, one of which you have touched upon.

    You´re not the only person to have suffered from the unjust and down right dirty hands of Mr.Andi Super. The entire RK company is a scam. I know, I was their employer for 18 months, and they left me with a 6.5k hole in my bank account.

  • Rollo Tomasi

    I am sorry to hear that.

    Email me and tell me everything you have to say please. Thank you.

  • Framenerd

    I worked for Reelkandi as a camera operator and they did not pay me AT ALL. In fact they also didn’t pay the camera operator before me either. And loads of Presenters left because they didn’t pay them. They are a scam. and the Director Ross Webb and Andi Super are brothers in law. Terrible people.

  • Rollo Tomasi

    You didn’t get paid bi-weekly?

  • Jon

    Finally a post about this cowboy joker. I was owed thousands of pounds for advertising. To which I was completely mugged off. More articles like this are needed to expose this shambles business.

  • Sorry to hear about your troubles with Andrew Super. Another article on the subject can be found here: http://promovieblogger.com/reelkandi-tv-legal-threats-after-review-bad-business-practices-exam/
