I would like to submit Francis Pinnock and the production of Sangre Negra to your list. Frank works his crews 15-17 hours and then at the end of the day the money is no where to be found. When he does give people checks, they bounce. He has no appreciation for the hard work that people put in for his horrible projects. Please let me know if you need any more information.
I would like to report this production company which utilizes ALL of the following names
Cheryl Quintana (also goes by Petra Celia)
Mi Casa Network (LA Center Studios, 450 S. Bixel St., Suite M160)
Indivison 2000 Production Company
Creo 8 Production Company
This company not only never paid me and a crew of 35 people. Cheryl Quintana actually harassed me personally for months after I demanded payment. On production she locked herself in her car and fled the scene to avoid paying us. She tried to run another member of the crew off the road for angering her. These people are not only untrustworthy but also mentally unstable and dangerous. Please share so other people do not experience what we had.

Client hired me to do post production sound. Gave me unreasonable deadlines with poor production material. Ex: quoted 2 weeks for an episode that needed some major audio cleaning; was given 3 days to complete. Not even enough time to work out the kinks.
Intitially when discussing work with client I stated point blank I would work on the first episode on a flat rate and after that I would charge accordingly for the amount of time it would take me to work on each project. Client never payed his bill and I never got paid.
Many collegues of mine, including the one that introduced me to them warned me of their shady tactics. I was warned and didnt listen. Lesson learned. Now I want to make sure no one else gets screwed.
Thanks for your time.

I worked on a film called: The Hustle Life, last month on 7/14/12. I was one of several actors hired that day to work on this shady and unorganized project. I was hired by Sean Peden A.K.A. Sean Cook of REEL Entertainment. I am a big supporter of Indie projects but this one turned out to be no good! All of us actors were told that a payment of $100 would be sent by the first of August...and nothing ever came. I emailed, called and texted Sean Peden/Cook and he either ignored me or when I did get a hold of him, he would say the check is coming or can be deposited into my account...did that happen? NO. Sean Peden/Cook is a liar and preys on young talent to get free footage for his bootleg unoriginal "movie."
Please DO NOT work for him, he is dishonest and untrustworthy!!!!
