They say they are a producer/production company with an affiliation with PBS and their affiliates. This is a lie. He develops an idea for a TV show then reaches out to "sponsors" (typically corporations/small businesses) who's business aligns well with the show. He lures them in with all sorts of lies. He takes their money, and may or may not shoot a horrible "sponsor commercial" that he states will be featured in the programs DVD. This assuages the sponsor just enough so he can spread more lies about when the show will be produced and aired. Which it rarely is.
He also takes advantage of any videographers or crew he may "hire". He lies to them saying he'll get payment to them "immediately" via a check in the mail. It never comes.
There are individuals and businesses littered across the country who have been lied to and taken advantage off.
I encourage anyone considering doing business with him or his company to seriously reconsider. You are taking a major risk. Please don't fall for his lies.
Anyone who uses the well established and feel good brand of PBS as a means to steal money is obviously someone with serious ethical and moral issues.
