RES Media Group
Now sadly defunct, RES was the pioneer of the digital media movement, with a global traveling film festival, a quarterly magazine and a collection of curated DVDs. RES rode the tech wave through the 90’s in San Francisco, securing sponsorships over the years from Macromedia, Intel and Panasonic to Diesel, Perrier and other lifestyle brands. It was ultimately acquired by Palm Pictures out of New York.
A privately-held entertainment conglomerate started by Chris Blackwell, Palm Pictures offers film development and distribution, reps bands, licenses music and has an incredible Little Black Book of celebrities, performers and publishing interests.
