Kevin Shulman/Kevin Dwyer @ Axiom 8 Films

I have worked on several jobs with Kevin Shulman/Kevin Dwyer, owners/producers of Axiom Films inc. aka Axiom 8. On each job I have done with them it has taken months to receive checks. There are several jobs from January that I haven't been paid on yet. I am not alone, there are other crew members in the same boat, ranging from Steadicam operators, grips, electrics all the way down to PA's. These people are not to be trusted, they have told me, and others, numerous times that my check is "in the mail" only to never receive one. They need to be stopped. They applied these same shady techniques with Raging Nation Films until they were both fired from that production company and started Axiom films Inc. applying the same shady practices.

Michael Bowers / Xhaled Productions

Cam ops/Editors: AVOID Michael Bowers and Xhaled Productions

This is a warning to all Camera ops and editors:

Do not do any work for Michael Bowers or Xhaled Productions. He writes bad checks and refuses to pay for work you have billed him for. He might pay you on time for a couple jobs, but eventually he will just stop paying you.

Xhaled does paintball videos, and operates under the company CAM Business Solutions.
