Shout! Factory is an entertainment company founded in 2002 that was started by Richard Foos (co-founder of Rhino Records), Bob Emmer (former Warner Music Group and Rhino executive) and Garson Foos (former Rhino executive) initially as a specialty music label. It focuses on enriched music catalog reissues, home video/DVD projects, and television properties.
Conceived as a retro pop culture label, Shout! Factory DVD projects include live music shows, music documentaries, animation, live-action television, as well as productions by DIC and sports (including Major League Baseball and Warren Miller ski titles).
Shout! Factory CD and music DVD products are distributed by Sony Music Entertainment and as of June 2007 their nonmusic DVD titles are distributed by Vivendi.
Shout! Factory currently has a long term distribution deal with DIC Entertainment for most of the latter company's catalog.
In 2009, Shout! Factory began releasing the G.I. Joe cartoon in season sets, as well as a Complete Series Footlocker with many extras.
GetBack.com was created in 2007 by Shout! Factory executives Richard Foos, Garson Foos, and Bob Emmer, as well as media veterans from IFILM and MTV Networks. This company markets popular entertainment content from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s and targets the 35-55-year-old demographic. Natural Energy Lab, Shout! Factory's film and TV licensing business, is run by Danny Benair. Shout!
