Complaint Review: Brent Johns - Maricopa Arizona
Brent Johns Five12Media PlanetXploration PXL Media IosFx TreeFrogMedia Stole thousands of dollars from the company I work for, plus stealing other peoples content and claiming as his own. Maricopa Arizonaa
Brent and I worked for the same company, he was hired on to produce a 30-45 minute youtube series. One episode for every city the company visits to film the family and the stories of the items they bought. He set three deadlines for himself on when the videos would go live, each time the deadlines passed with no word on what was going on, he would just vanish.
Then after the deadline come up with some excuse on how he was editing editing editing.. The owner paid him upwards of 10,000$ for his work, and all expenses paid while traveling (three weeks at a time, each week a different city). Brent did nothing but make two 1-2 minute intro videos when he started feeling the pressure, and to keep us "happy".
After almost two months with no epsiode he quits, then the next day uploaded a 45 minute video on his portfolio. It was about him, his travels and how he "met up" with the family to discover items. The man says he has a PHD in Cinematography but juding by that video that was a lie, it was horribly made to say the least.
We dodged a bullet there by not having his work shown. His website also states they have over 300 offices nationwide but not one person put any reviews on LinkedIn, Glassdoor, Indeed.com etc. When you do a street view of the offices its a garage.
Not only is he a liar and a scam, he also steals other peoples media and claims it as his own. On his portfolio he has pictures and videos from various small companies claiming it as his own produced work. Doing some reverse image searching brought up the websites and companies he stole from.
He did "make" us a nice website, I hit on make becuase he used a template from wordpress. His website states they make custom websites to tailor to our business. I can't roll my eyes hard enough at this guy.
