The exits from Circle of Confusion and Gotham Group are amicable, the partners said.
“We originally met at an event intended to bring together Latinos in entertainment and quickly realized that we had complementary taste, skill-sets, and approach to the business,” Gil said. Added Alvarez: ” I had long been thinking about my part in helping cultivate and empower the voices of the future that my son would be growing up with. My first meeting with Tony and Max lasted hours and hours, at which point I knew that they were the perfect people to build this dream with.”
