I normally would not post our business online. but I came accross several posting about James Knight and his Knight Vision motion capture studio. If these reports help someone else from being ripped off, and taken in by this SCAMMERS and FAKESTERS then it is worth the post. We were referred to K.V by an EX Giant Studios worker. We hired them for a Grammy's project. James told us this was withing their "Wheel House". He showed us a ton of Avitar mocap and said this would be a "Giggle and Shits" project.
He and and Scott insisted on a 50% deposit to book the gig. James said the shoot would take 1 day, and our data would be delivered in MAYA in 4 days. Sounded resonable. IT WAS A TOTAL BULL #*$# LIE. On the day of the shoot, call time was 7:00am. James was NO WHERE to be found. He did not answer his phone, texts or emails. At 1:00p.m James arrived. He said he was in divorce court. By this we had been with 3 of his employees for 5 hours, who gave us an EAR FULL of the SCAMS James has pulled on other producers. I immediately pulled James asided and asked if there was any truth to the stories. He denied them... though he fired 2 of the employes on the spot. There was a brief embarrassing shoutin match. (Fired employees said they were owed wages for a long time). Now it was just James, Scott and 1 employee. The employees said they could not do the shoot on their own. JAMES ans Scott could not help run the mocap. James gave me a total BS story that the system just underwent a softeware update over the weekend and he was not familar with it yet. He spent the next hour hiding in his office calling people to come it to help him. NO ONE CAME! James and Scott told us we would have to reschedule for the following day and they would give us a 20% discount on the stage rental and a $2.00 per frame discount on the data. I did not accept the offer. We had a TIGHT DEADLINE and now we lost a day. I was able to book another mocap vendor for the following afternoon and we completed the gig on deadline.
To this day have NEVER received our 50% Downpayment! The "Check is in the Mail" James told us serveral times. MORE BS LIES. Finally we went to Universal for a refund. They refused. They have nothing to do with them. They just rent an office.
We tried suing Knight Vision Studios and James Knight. They filed bankruptcy protection! WE got nothing-ZERO
