James Knight BAFTA BOARD / AMD VR FRAUD Scam Artist Liar Crook Jerk Los Angeles California
James Knight is once again back to his old tricks. Several years ago he was accused of taking bribes for membership into BAFT, here in Los Angeles. I actually was unsure if this could be true, when it was discussed amongst the Los Angeles Membership.Low and behold, a fortnight ago, I attended a BAFTA (I am a member), with my girlfried. She is no yet a member. He dad's family is from Manchester. She was born in the US. She has been acting for just shy of 3 years. She does book work on a regular basis, though her credits may not  be quite there.. to be approved for membership. I do not know James well, though we do know each other.. 5+ years. After 3 Jamesons.. he said if my girlfried applied for membership. He said I could count on his vote... though it is not a lock that she will be approved, though he would speak to other board members. He said it is quit common, to help each other out in this way.He did not directly ask me for money. He is now far too smart for that. He did work into the conversation that his son attends a private school, and that it is a small school that is always in need of funding. He asked (wink wink) if we would be willing to make a donation. He did not tell us the amount, only that we could give him a check and that he would make the donation in his name (to avoid attention).We got the feeling that James was looking for upwards of $2,000.00. he went into considerable detail of the school and how it was helping his son. and how very expensive it is. and that his ex-wife is not in the position of assiting with the tutition.

James Knight AMD VR / Bafta Fake, Fake Knowledge, Untrustworthy, Scam Artist, Liar, FRAUD Los Angeles California
James Knight was referred to our VR start up via and introduction made at Siggraphy through AMD.On paper his credentials sounded as if he was just what we needed. However, we later found out his credentials are for the most part Fake. He is not a Producer, He actually knew less then our interns from AFI. He has limited knowledge of Virtual Production. He is a Parrot. He was unable to provide us with any usable assistance. We hired him to be the Virtual Production Producer on a VR Experience. He had us conned during our pre-production meetings... it was not until we were actually in production that his lack of input cost us to loss 2.5 days. We litterally fired on day 2, and replaced him, half way into day 3. He had the nerver to threaten to sue us if he did not receive his contracted pay (3 weeks). The client almost fired us. We estimate our loss at $15,000 by hiring James. If the client uses our studio again, our losses will be much higher. James is a real salesmen.. and not the good kind. He also tried to Charm his way out of trouble with his english accent, though our 2 (female ) producers... did not fall any further for his CON.

He told us if we were members it would get us loads of hollywood work (ex-pats sticking together an such). He told us to fluff up or work bio's and that he was on the membership committee. He told us it would cost us each 500 US Dollars and he would 100% approve us. This guy is nothing but a scalawag.. we would not even give him 1 quid but we did report him to BAFTA UK

James G.H. Knight James Knight / DIgital Artists Agency SCAMMER / SCAM ARTIST CULVER CITY California
Digital Artists Agency has hired James Knight. James G.H. Knight as their Production Manager. James is up to the same old tricks.. he is a SCAM ARTIST. He lies are smooth. Though he is a scoundral. He claims to have a tremendous amount of VFX experience, which infact is nothing but LIES. He worked for Giant Studios and claimed he was the VES Motion Capture on Avatar. If you watch the end credits on an AVATAR DVD, the proof is there to be seen. He changed his IMDB credit after he was FIRED by Candice Algers the owner of Giant Studios. He then opened up Knight Vision Motion Capture Studios on the back lot of Universal Studios. After number lawsutis from vendors (Game On in Montrael and Warner Brother's), along with lawsutis filed by numerous employes). He was forced to close the business. The California Department of Labor can verify the complaints and lawsuits. He was reproted to the IRS and there are numerous active investigations currently taking place. James tried to change his stripes by re-booting his company as BLUSTREAK Media. Same location as Knight Vision, same phone number. Even the very same DEMO REEL that he STOLE form Giant Studios. He shows work that was NEVER done by Knight Vision, BluStreak and now Digital Artists Agency. Giant Studios did the work, James was not responsible for ANY of the actual Motion Capturea / Virtual Camera Work / or Animation that Giant Studios did. James assumes that since he worked there he can take credit for Giants accomplishments. Look at his DEMO and call GIANT STUDIOS or any of the Clients for them to verify James is a FRAUD. James and Knight Vision Studios were FIRED on THE AMAZING SPIDERMAN and KICKED OFF THE BACK LOT. Call Image Works or Sony directly. Janes and his company were also KICKED OFF Ralight Studios's Lot in Hollywood. Call Raligh and Verify. There are numerous complaints about James on this site as well as others. He lied about his credentials when he applied for member ship at the VES and BAFTA. Do youselves a favour and read about James online in other complaints. If you think he is a nice bloke, speak to his EX-WIFE!!

Knight Vision Studios James Knight Knight Vision Studios is WORTHLESS RIP OFF Universal City California
Knight Vision Studios was hired by a 3rd Party Gaming company for a Warner Brother's Batman Arkham City. Knight Vision motion capture data was unaceptable. Their marker placement was incorrect, their facial and finger capture data was unusable. They were unable to Solve/Clean the data that was acceptable for our team. They did not use Calcium or Blade to solve the data. They used a solver of their own, which was horrible. They were contacted to retarget the data. That was never done. They did not have anyonye on staff to do the motion editing. The were caught trying to hire a 3rd party company to do the retargeting, which violated the NDA that they signed. James Knight continued to LIE to us. We fired Knight Vision 6 weeks into the job. The 3rd party company was fired as well for bringing Knight Vision on board.  We verified with Giant Studios that Knight Vision never worked on Avatar, King Kong or Reel Steel as their REEL shows. They also did not work on Hit Man. James tried to back peddle on this by saying people that he hired had worked on them. This is FALSE AND MISLEADING. Giant Studios also confirmed James was not the Motion Capture Produce on Avitar and in online interviews claim. He was a scheduling co-ordinator.   We Lost TIME AND MONEY on this Project. We compled to Universal Studios, since Knight Vision is a tenant renting space at UVS1.   I am astonished that BAFTA, AMPAS  the VES would have him as a member. Everything his says is embellished and stretching of the tructh

 James Knight and his motion capture studio: KnightVison Studios are WORTHLESS. All smoke and mirrors. Unfortunatley, we hired them for a mocap video game mocap shoot. We paid for the entire mocap shoot and only received a portion of unfinished data. Knight Vision did not do any motion editing that they were paid to do. We filed a lawsuit against them. We uncovered, the reason the data was not completed according to contract: KnightVision was not paying their employees and they walked out and sued. We also uncovered numerous LIES that are even on their website. They DO NOT have 15 years experience. The company has only been in business 2 years. Knight Vision NEVER worked on AVITAR, KING KONG or REEL STEEL. Anytime they hire someone who woked on a studio film they count that as their work. GIANT STUDIOS worked on these films. At one time James worked at Giant Studios, in the front office. He is wronfully taking credit, and does not have any legal rights to the footage on his website. I am baffled how the VES, AMPAS and BAFTA have granted him membership.Smoke and Mirrors.... KnightVision is located at Universal UVS1 as a tennant only. They deceived us by letting us believe are in partnership with Universal. This was another LIE!. We tried to put a lien on their equipment, only to find it it is not owned by KnightVision or Unviversal. DO YOU DUE DILIGENCE!!

James Knigt and his Knight Vision Studios is a TOTAL SCAM. They take you money and can't deliver the motion capture data.   I hired them for a music video shoot when they were located at Raliegh Studios / Best Practices Lab. On day 2 one of our dancers was injured, when a mocap camera fell from an over head rail (10ft). The dancer fell into a c-stand. They broke their left wrist and had had a 4 inch cut in their scalp that needed stiches. They were taken by ambulance to Cedars Sinai. The EMS bill was $2,200, The emergence room bill was $3,700.00. Our company's workemens comp covered their wages. Knight Vision Lied on the contract they gave us. They charged us $250.00 per day for insurance, though the DID NOT HAVE INSURANCE.  Raleigh Studios said James rented the stage and it was up to Knight Vision to provide insurance. Knight Vision was not a partner with Knight Vision.   We finished the shoot with another dancer. James delived the data 3 weeks Late. The Data was JUNK! It was not sovled or retargeted. It was WORTHLESS. James said he would fix it. We got the fixed data 1 week later and it was WORTHLESS.  We did not pay the balance owed to Knight Vision. We sued Knight Vision for deposit we paid, as well as the EMS Bill and Hospital Bill, Orthopedic Surgeons Bill and Physical Therapists Bill.   JAMES Filed Chapter 11. RALEIGH STUDIOS KICKED JAMES AND HIS KNIGHT VISION COMPANY OUT OF  THE BPL AND THEY WERE KICKED OFF/ and BANNED FROM ALL RALEIGH STUDIOS. **Knight Vision set up shop at Universal.   THE are NOTHING BUT SCAMMERS.

James Knight and his Knight Vision Stuidios Motion Capture are nothing more then Scam Artists! We misktakenly were taken in by their BS.. though I think part of the reason was that they are located at UVS1 at Universal. James lead us to believe his company and Universal UVS1 partners. We hired them and fired them as soon as they began delivering our video game data. The data was wanky, misplaced markers, their clean up of the data was unexceptable, no retageting. They delivered WORTHLESS UNUSABLE DATA. All James could give us was a BS SONG AND DANCE. We complained to UVS1 and Unviersal only to find out that Knight Vision Studios is not a partner with Universal. They are only tenants.  We are suing James and Knight Vision in Los Angeles Superior Court.  While preparing for litigation we have learned that Knight Vision Studios has not worked on Avitar, King Kong, Reel Steel, Hit Man or Batman-There Reel says they have... A TOTAL LIE. AUTO DESK has confirmed Knight Vision or James Knight do not have a licence for Motion Builder or Maya. We have learned they do not even own he motion caputre system they are using. James plays the BRIT card and that is how he drew me in via BAFTA. Another LIE- He says he is form London. We have confirmed he has lived in the United States since was a 10 year old boy. A US citizen to boot. He acts if he just got arrived, with his made up accent. He said he was from Surrey. Happened that is where I grew up for 30 years. His accent is all over the place a Liverpool-Leeds mix. Not Surrey. When I tried to talk to him about Surrey.. HE KNEW NOTHING. Just as you would expect from a person who has not been lived there for 35 years. We found even his Tweeter account is a lie. Says he is a Brit and is happy to be here!!!  He grew up her for godsakes.   Follow our lawsuit.

Knight Vison Studios rips off their employees!  I was a former employee at Giant Studios. I had worked with James Knight there. He and Scott Owen hired to work for them at Knight Vision Studios. I worked there for about 8 weeks. I was paid for the first two weeks, The next week James said he could not meet payroll for anyone  (cash flow problems because of his divorce). He said he would make it up us the following week. He ASSURED us he would make payroll the following week. He did not... or the week after that. I had no choice but to quit. He NEVER paid me. I went to file unemployement and could not get it, because James listed me as an independent contractor... which I was NOT.   I went to H&R at Universal only to find out they said he did not work for them. He was only renting space at their UVS1 stage. I also found out he did not even own the motion capture system he was using. He ended up being uncollectable. I also fould out he has been investigated by California Labor Dept. for not paying other employees.  Knight Vision is just SMOKE AND MIRRORS! James was never a Motion Capture Supervisor or Producer at GIANT. He just scheduled us for work. Candice Alger and Matt Madden were the only mocap supervisors or mocap producers. He must have lied to the VES, BAFTA and AMPAS. There is no way they let a scheduler join.

 James Knight and his KNIGHT VISION STUDIOS are nothing more then THIEFS! CROOKS! LIARS! SCAM ARTIST I hired James (Knight Vision Studio) to do a 30 Second Television Commercial MoCap Spot. The 3 day shoot was done at Raleigh Studios, sound stage 6. James said he would should the mocap with 60 cameras, and track 3 actors in the mocap volume with props. On the day of the shoot, James only had 16 cameras on set. He first told us that was by design. As soon as we began tacking the 3 actors, we saw the data was 100% Gargbage. Instead of tracking at 120 frames per second, James was tracking at 40 frames per second. His Data was WORTHLESS! He suggested shooting each actor seperately and stiching them together in MAYA! At that point I knew he was nothing mor then a FRAUD. He told us he was the Motion Caputure Supervisior on AVATAR or almost 5 years. I knew he was trying to SCAM Me. That was not a solution. A actualy mocap supervisor would have known that. We brought in the Best Practices Laboratory at Raleigh. This is where Knight Vision is located at Raleigh. James contiuned to lie by saying he could fix everything in Maya. Raleigh studios sent in a vfx supervisor on lot within  20 minutes, James was told to issue us a 100% refund. He did. That was a 50% deposit of the total cost of the Job. Raleigh executives came into sound stage 6 and told the owner David, of the BPL, that James Knight and Knight Vision Studios were no longer allowed on the Lot. While we packed up our, so did James. What we also found out the 16 mocap cameras were not owned by Knight Vision Studios. They were the property of the Best Practical Laboratory.   We completed the shoot at another studio 1 week later, which cost us a 10% performance penalty. James is a SNAKE OIL SALESMEN. HE DOES NOT OWN A MOCAP SYSTEM. HE DID NOT WORK AS A MOTION CAPTURE SUPERVISIOR OR PRODUCER ON AVATAR (as he says or interviews that are online). GIANT STUDIOS AND LIGHT STORM WILL VERIFY THIS. HIS DEMO REEL IS FILLED WITH JOBS THAT KNIGHT VISION NEVER WORKED ON OR WAS FIRED FROM. GIANT STUIOS WILL VERIFY THIS AND SO WILL WARNER BROTHERS. James Knight is FRAUD. He has been kicked out of Raligh Studios, Marvel Studios, Warner Brothers Studios, Fox Studios and Sony Studios. ALL can be Verified by each studio.   He is a SCAMMER: He lies about his experience, and then goes out and tries to hires independent contractors to complete the job.

They coulld not even calibrate their own volume. I got into an argument with James. He said he was going to give us a discount on the clean up, but he had to charge us the stage rental because he had to pay it Universal. He only rents the space from Universal.

 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

BluStreak Media James Knight / Knight Vision Studios FRAUD SCAM ARTISTS Universal City California
 James Knight is back in business under the new name BluStreak Media. The phone number and location are the same as Knight Vision Studios   James is a SCAM ARTIST and FRAUD. Read all the postings about him on this site. LET'S STICK TO VERIFIABLE FACTS -His demo reel is a Fraud. James is showing work that Giant Studios did. He had nothing to do with the actual production or planning of the work. He was only an employee of Giant Studios. Reel Steel, King Kong and Avatar were Giant Studios jobs not BluSteak. James was fired by Giant for listing himself on the credits of Avatar as the Motion Capture Supervisor. On IMDB he changed it to Performance Capture Project Manager.. what a joke. All he did on Avatar for 3 and a half years was to schedule call times for mocap actors, and a handfull of giant mocap operators. He had nothing to do with running the mocap. Watch the end credits on an Avatar DVD, and you will see how James listed himself.. which led to his firing. Call Candice or Matt at Giant Studios. 310-839-1999. You can also call Lightstorm Ent. to also verify.   James was kicked out of Sony, Raleigh Studios and Warner Bros. He and Knight Vision Studios.

Verify with the IRS (Failur to Pay Tanx and Failure to With hold Tax) 213-576-3009. Also Verify with the California Department of Industrial Relations: 213-620-6330   He was fired by Warner Bros. and sued on the project Batman Arkham.. and he is showing the footage on his reel.

Blustreak Media JAMES KNIGHT FRAUD CON ARTISTS Universal City California
 James Knight is infact back in business under a new company name BLUSTREAK MEDIA. His previous company was Knight Vision Motion Capture Studios. Blustreak Media fradulently claims they did the motion capture on AVATAR, KING KONG, REAL STEEL, SPIDERMAN, TIN TIN as well as numerous video games and commercials. This is NOT TRUE. All of the work they they show in their Demo Reel is the work of Giant Studios. Just because James was an employee of Giant Studios at the time when Giant Studios did this work, James cannto claim it as his own nor Blustreak's.  They have stolen footage from Giant Studios. Giant Studios is not their partner, and they do not have anything to do with Blusteak Media. They are just EX-Employees!! Can you imgaine what would happen if every Ex-Employee from WETA, ILM, DISNEY, PIXAR, SONY, WARNER BROS. UNIVERSAL decided to steal footage and start up their own companies claiming the work is theirs... just because they were once employed by these companies and worked in some capacity on films their employers were contracted to work on.   They are scammers! Call them out on their Scam. Ask Mr. Knight why he and his company Knight Vision Motion Capture Studios were run out of business. Go Daddy is not selling their Domain Name. Mr. Knight and his new partner's may have changed their spots... but at the end of the day.. they are the same ole SCAMMERS!

Knight Credit Service, Jaime Acosta, James Metz, Marty McArthur RIP OFF ARTISTS Fayetteville North Carolina
About one year ago we entered into an contract with Knight Credit Services and it has been nothing but trouble ever since. They claimed that they would reduce our interest rates on our credit cards and pay our payments for us. Jaime Acosta and his staff continually lied to us when our bills were not being paid on time. We ended up with late fees in the hundreds of dollars, and several hundred dollars in bounced checks to our creditors and a constant hassle. Before we started with Knight we had perfect credit and now our credit score is shot. After talking to many people it has become apparent that Knight has scammed so many people in Fayetteville and lord knows where else. The Fayetteville Police Department is presently taking reports of fraud about Knight Credit Service. The Federal Trade Commission will act on a class action suit if enough people complain. The Attorney Generals Office will investigate if enough people complain. Something needs to be done!!!!!!! If you are reading this and have problems with this rip off company you need to report them to the following: Internal Revenue Service 483-2587 (report fraud) Federal Trade Commission 1 877-382-4357 (consumer matters) Attorney Generals Office in Raleigh 919-716-6000 or 6400 or 6780 (business misconduct) Better Business Bureau 800-558-3122 (unsatisfactory rating) Police Dept in Fayetteville 433-1529 (file a criminal report of fraud) L.

JAMES KNIGHT AMD VR FRAUD / SCAMMER / FRAUDSTER / SCAM ARTIST / CROOK SANTA MONICA California
James Kinght works for AMD and has his own VR Company. I met him at Siggraph 2016. He was working in the AMD VR booth. He told me he has his own virtural production company that created VR content.   Our agency hired him to creat a VR demo experience (between 20-30 seconds, 360 VR in 3D). We were going to use it as a Demo for our client Audio. If they liked what we created, we were going to be awarded a 2 minute experience that Audio was going to show at the upcoming Geneva Auto Show. We paid James Knight $75.000. Six weeks after the shoot presented us the VR Demo. It was NOT in 3D, and the Stitching was so poorly done that we could see that the footage was from different cameras. He assured us he would fix this... and that he one showed us this down & dirty vision for us to only approve the creative content. Two months later,(which was 1 month later then the final delivery date he promised us), James returned and told us that he was not satisfied with the demo he created and that it would cost us an addition $75,000 to complete the job. He did not show us anything.. he just said he need the additional $75,000 and if we did not pay him he was not going to complete the job. We demanded that he give us all of the work he done up until this point. and he refused. We reported him to AMD, because he solicited our business directly from their booth at siggraph. We believed his coompany and AMD were some sort of team. They are not. AMD told us they would not get involved, and that we should seek restitution by whatever means we deemed necessary. This was not the response we expected. AMD let James Knight pretend to be an expert.. and directly get our business.. while he was clearly working on the clock for them.   AMD must be getting a kick back. James Knight does not know anything about creating VR contact. He is a AMD salesman
