Artists Speak Out Against MPC

Oh my. Variety ran a story about MPC with the headline “Moving Picture Co. Finds Valuing Artists is the Best Effect”. Check out the comments at the bottom of the page.  Some examples: 

  • “mpc is an abusive, criminal workplace driving salaries down. there have been heart attacks there by their over-worked artists. ”
  • “…working at MPC is a dreary, depressing experience.”
  • “God bless you Variety, for exposing one of the nastiest most viscous employers on the planet. Don’t even get me started on inter-company shared employer info and blacklists all propagated by MPC and their sick and twisted leaders, not to mention evil-minion dept heads.”
  • “This article is nonsense, the comments are the truth.”
  • “Last year, during crunch MPC Van ran out of toilet paper. On every floor.”
  • “MPC = Major Pay Cut . Avoid”

…and it goes on and on and on. Definitely check it out and pass this along to your friends.
