This "group" needs to be INVESTIGATED !!

The principle owner(s) are luring local residents to their current studio in Ferndale with free seminars. The lead speaker is Jeff Spilman and he is quite the con-man. He is baiting vulnerable people with promises of internships, jobs, and job placement in the local market. The method is to sell folks on the education courses offered at S3, which typically run two weeks per course at a cost of $2000 dollars per student. Prospects are duped into believing there will be ample opportunities provided by S3 to apply the freshly learned material into a paying job and/or internship. The overall percentage of former students that have been placed into any type of working environment (per course completion) is alarmingly low. DO NOT believe the "50%" placement rate boasted by S3. This is absolutely misleading !

Ultimately, S3 entertainment is building cash reserves. By compromising programs such as the No Worker Left Behind, S3 is bilking tax payer money to siphon funds from State coffers for the ostensible purpose of job creation. Loose regulations on State funding for such projects combined with no performance clause on allocated funds allow quick buck artists to take advantage of the system. What is being "built up" will ultimately be torn down; figuratively and quite possibly literally. The end result will likely be a negative return on investment, shortage of additional funds, and dissolution of companies such as S3. Anyone who thinks Michigan will become Hollywood's next destination is fooling themselves. In the case of Jeff Spilman and co., he seems to have found enough fools !

Jeff Spilman's office in LA is nothing more than a UPS Store Mail Box!
I tracked it down.
The business phone in LA is a Cell Phone!
This guy is all hustle. Sell his classes that don't get people jobs so he can keep up his front of a studio that is not doing anything but selling more classes.
