I was verbally and physically abused by a female tv producer, while I was a middle-weight creative working on a global campaign film.

She also slagged both myself and my partner off to the ECD so badly that he didn't renew our contract and we were let go.

Nobody asked us for our side of the story. We told no-one while it was happening, as we were worried for our positions.

After this agency, we parted as a creative team and we both left advertising altogether.

We learned later, the producer in question did this to many teams with varying levels of aggression and abuse. All said nothing.

She was promoted and still works in the industry today.
