He wrote and i quote “I saw this on Instagram and it triggered me, someone posted it as a meme but that’s the reality of most crew members especially in Nigeria. I have had my own fair share of it. Why will a man who lift heavy gears that weigh at least 70kg 10 times a day be denied a proper meal?

“If you want to build a team don’t be the first to divide the team by determining who eat what and who doesn’t. Food is very important for crew members.

“I also know some crew members abuse it, but until then feed them. At least they earned it. Also learn to speak to them nicely, just the same way you will speak to those you consider important on your set,’’he added.

Amazon Completes Hollywood Studio, MGM Acquisition

Author: Gift Wada, Abuja

Amazon has closed its acquisition of MGM, officially bringing the film and TV studio into its fold.

Amazon announced that it has acquired Hollywood movie and television studio Metro Goldwyn Mayer, MGM for $8.5 million. The purchase happened after Amazon certified to the Federal Trade Commission that it had provided all the information requested by the “antitrust investigators” reviewing the deal.
MGM is the studio responsible for hit movies such as Rocky and James Bond but hasn’t won a Grammy for best picture since 1991.
According to Reuters, Amazon made a statement saying that it would welcome all MGM employees to the company and work with the studio’s leadership, indicating there would not be layoffs.
Forbes Magazine reports that MGM shareholders have lobbied Amazon to treat MGM like a stand-alone label under the Amazon umbrella as MGM film division since last year has been making moves to improve their moribund movie studio by buying the rights of movies from high profile movie makers.

On its plans for MGM, Amazon has said very little, only stating that they purchased the company because of its library, and also in order to be able to remake its old titles as TV shows and movies.
This purchase by Amazon means that Amazon would be investing more into the movie production industry and into Hollywood and regardless of what strategies the company employs, this is a decision that would greatly affect the valuation of Amazon.
It already owns Amazon studios, which is arguably the biggest movie streaming site after Netflix and a studio purchase means that we would see more of Amazon in Hollywood productions.
