Adam and Antony Murphy scam

Hello CGTtalk friends

My name is Francesco Giroldini, I currently work at Blue Sky Studios as Lighter/Compositor.
I am the co-director on "The monk and the Monkey" and "Animation Tag Attack".

Recently I've been the victim of a scam from two individuals, Adam and Antony Murphy, who go by "imaginears", who took my art and storyboards and without my knowledge attempted to launch a kickstarter in order to produce a short film.

They contacted a bunch of previous and current Pixar, Dreamworks and Sony employees and were going around showing my original art and asking them to appear as testimonials on their kickstarter.

The saddest thing is that they were able to get a lot of friends of mine to do work for them, either for free or at discounted price, who did not realize about the scam until I blogged about it.

I posted the full story here:

Please share, so that no more artists will be hurt by them :P

thank you!
