Jason Goddard Godspeed Motion Pictures False claims, slander against others, phone calls at unusual hours, pointless online/in-person mandatory meetings Internet, Nationwide
0Author 0Consumer 0Employee/Owner
Jason Goddard, CEO of Godspeed Motion Pictures, is a liar who makes claims to produce and direct an upcoming feature film about boxing called "Unphazed". He is constantly having phone and computer "problems" and will meet people spontaneously at Apple and Sony Stores so he can use the ones on display. He holds "new cast member" parties and filming/screening parties at a small dingy boxing gym in Marina del Rey on major holidays and weekends when most people active in their communities have already booked jobs for themselves. He creates secret groups online using his facebook profile(s) and makes false claims about the movie being SAG. The Screen Actors Guild addressed these false claims in an actual member alert report on their official website regarding this supposed film, confirming that the film had not been approved by the SAG as of January 2011. Jason is very demanding and requires his cast members "be on board or get left behind" and threatens cutting them from the cast when they are unable to attend these daily online and weekly in-person meetings/parties. He slanders anyone (including SAG) who questions the authenticity of his film and calls them "racists". He has also been known to make phone calls at unreasonable hours and goes into rants when you don't answer and have to call back later. Anyone who's worked in the film business knows that successful directors don't have this much time on their hands, and neither do successful actors/performers/fighters/etc. When asked for tax forms, contracts, lines, post-production advertisement info, etc. affiliated with the movie (literally within weeks of the "first day of filming") he suddenly disappears and has phone and computer "problems" again and has his ever-changing "assistants" answer pressing questions with vague "let's wait for Jason" responses. When you ask why you haven't received your script yet, claims of the script being at risk for getting "stolen" by other ex-cast members who have been kicked off for mutiny are made. Note: if one has a verified script, no one can legally "steal" it from you- it's your property! He has also posted montage videos on YouTube with pictures of flyers for the film next to flyers with the statement "Best Screenplay and Best Picture Oscars" in the same frame to insinuate that the film is already up for nomination. This man is delusional and making illegal claims. Don't let him waste your time or reputation. He has made mention of "needing more funding" even though he's made the audacious claim of guaranteeing revenue by his second film of this "three-picture film" (or -as most call it- trilogy) so don't waste your money either. I CAN say, in his defense, that I DID receive a T-shirt and didn't have to pay for it- LOL!
