Imaginears Animation Studio SCAM – Adam and Antony Murphy demand $10,000,000 in damages.

On 04/25/14  I received a letter from a solicitor hired by Adam and Antony Murphy, claiming that the twins reputation suffered irreparable damage as a consequence to my “campaign of defamation” and demanding not less than $10,000,000 in damages in order to offset their financial losses. Below is an excerpt from the letter:

“As a direct and proximate result of the foregoing acts and conduct, the Plaintiffs have
sustained and will continue to sustain substantial, immediate and irreparable injury, and  therefore request judgment against defendant Giroldini for compensatory and punitive  damages in an amount not less than $10,000,000 (ten million dollars), together with  attorneys’ fees, costs and other relief as this Court may deem proper.

The letter claims that the twins are entirely responsible for the idea, designs and storyboards for a short film that they attempted to crowd-fund through kick-starter in 2013 and that my designs and storyboards are unauthorized reproductions of their work.

These new claims directly contradict their previous statements affirming that I was  a former employee of theirs (which I never was).

These new claims also contradict their own previous admission from October 25th 2013 that I was responsible for the original story.

In addition to that, their claims of being solely responsible for the original design and storyboards  could be met by skepticism since in September of 2012 they admitted of never have studied film-making and as of February 2013, they still admitted of only being able to draw stick figures.

I also have evidence to support their claims, the evidence being assignments they turned in during the time I was still mentoring them, in October of 2012.
