Relativity Media is a curious entertainment company.
I don't know too much about their internals just yet. But I noticed an article on them in Variety. They're a currently struggling movie company out in Hollywood responsible for quite a few major movies we've all heard of.
According to Wikipedia, Relativity Media is "the third largest mini-major globally until bankruptcy on July 30, 2015. Its full-scale film studio acquires, develops, produces and distributes films. The company's partners and financial institutions have invested $20 billion as of 2012 in entertainment investments with partners such as Citibank, Merrill Lynch, Deutsche Bank and others."
The article is called "Could the End Be Near for Beleaguered Relativity Media?"
As an addendum, I've added some of their posters to look at as you read this very interesting (and curious!) excerpt buried in the article.
Will do more research on Relativity in the near future.
Many of their posters have an interesting pattern.
See if you can spot them ;-)
Anyway, Enjoy. And stay busy. Our work is important.
Beginning in mid-2016, Egotastic set up housekeeping alongside regular Relativity employees. According to witnesses, on at least a few occasions, photographers and scantily clad models would traipse through the office. Some employees found it embarrassing that the site, featuring unvarnished discussion of the anatomies of multiple actresses, was being run out of a company that worked with some of those same stars.
“I walked through the office with an administrator and said, ‘What are we going to do about this — it’s inappropriate,’ ” says one former Relativity employee. “And the response was, ‘Let’s put up a curtain, and nobody will be affected.’ It was ridiculous.”
While there was nothing illegal about the photo shoots, two former employees say they were another sign of Relativity’s inability to maintain professional standards, as it lurched out of bankruptcy and into a new incarnation of multiple promises but little real progress.
Insiders believed that the website was purchased by Kavanaugh’s family investment company, Knight Global. But a Relativity statement says Egotastic was bought by Relativity itself in a deal arranged by a former marketing executive and structured by a now-alienated Relativity investor. The company had no comment on employees’ discomfort with the website.
