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

James Knight is A Poser

AUTHOR: flyer2001 - (USA)

I was at Siggraph at Round Table Discussion with AMD. Everyone from AMD were spot on... Roy Taylor is a fountain of information.. everyone from AMD contributed.. except one guy named James Knight. An ex-pat from English. Where's Waldo looking guy...anorexic. The type of person who does not have an opinion of his own... he only parraots what his boss Roy Taylor said. When he was asked specific questions, he had to defer back to Roy everytime. Finally Roy shut him down by saying he will handle the questions. 

James has a reputation for being rather slimmy. Everthing I have heard about him is true.

If you do business with AMD (a company I like) avoid James Knight like the plague. He is a poser
