Energy Abound: Heather Parry’s Explosion into the Film Scene

Heather Parry’s quiet entrance in 2015 into the live-entertainment scene as president of Live Nation Productions quickly took off. Parry’s passion and hard work, along with her inability to give up on a project that she believes has great potential has led her to produce films and television series with big-name musicians such as Sean Combs, Lady Gaga, Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons, and others. Parry is known for her ambitious work ethic and desire to tell the true story of musicians. Many of Parry’s films and documentaries focus on the lives and struggles of well-known musicians, some of whom have record labels with Live Nations and others who do not. Parry finds a story with a powerful message and pours her heart into working with the artists and creating their vision on the screen.

A perfect example of how Parry goes all-in on a project she feels passionate for is her involvement in “A Star Is Born”. After learning Bradley Cooper was directing the film, Parry knew she had to be involved and began working to promote the film. Parry used the numerous music festivals to promote “A Star Is Born”, showing the trailer for the film between shows and hanging posters. Additionally, she did research with Ticketmaster to determine listening trends of fans of Lady Gaga to broaden their targeted marketing audience.

When Parry gets wind of a project that she sees potential, she dives in letting nothing get in her way. Parry pours her heart and soul into each project, determined to bring the essence of the story to life on screen. Parry’s ability to work with high profile musicians to create film and documentaries depicting powerful aspects of their lives makes her a trailblazer in the entertainment world.

Rebel Wilson Stars in Rom-Com Set For Valentine’s Day 2019

Attention all romantic comedy (rom-com) fans! There is a new film with a few refreshingly different aspects to it set to be released on Valentine’s Day of 2019 (what perfect timing!). The female lead, Natalie, is played by up-and-coming actress Rebel Wilson. A few of the other widely recognizable actors in the film, known as Isn’t It Romantic, include Liam Hemsworth, Priyanka Chopra, Tom Ellis, Betty Gilpin, and Adam Devine. Learn more about Rebel Wilson:

Often the fans of a rom-com are appreciative of the movie category because it allows them to escape their own reality, if only for the 1.5-2.5 typical show time. Instead, they enter a pseudo-world where the best of one’s romantic dreams can be seen coming true, a few little tugs can be felt on the heartstrings, a few true belly laughs plus an added chuckle or two are sure to be experienced, and, for better or worse, their real life is still waiting when they exit the theatre.

Isn’t It Romantic doesn’t disappoint in delivering this experience; however, there is a bit of a different take as we watch the lead character instantly portrayed as a skeptic. The viewer enters a world where Natalie (Rebel Wilson) is a slightly jaded architect who actively scoffs at the concept of romantic comedies and fairy tale love. This simply makes it all the more interesting when Natalie suffers a head injury and awakens in the middle of a developing romantic comedy.

Essentially, the plot then develops around Rebel Wilson’s character, Natalie, and her best friend Josh who is played by Adam Devine is head over heels for Wilson’s best friend, who is played by Priyanka Chopra, and dashing stranger Blake (Liam Hemsworth) who falls for Rebel Wilson. Movie director Todd Strauss-Schulson likes to describe the film as a romantic comedy about the romantic tales we mentally weave for ourselves and calls it “a romantic comedy about romantic comedies”.

Rebel Wilson, 38, hails from Sydney in New South Wales, Australia and is well-known for her roles in the Pitch Perfect series and Bridesmaids. As a graduate of the Australian Theatre For Young People in 2003, she has a fairly long history of appearing in comedy sketches and series.

Wilson earned a Teen Choice Award and an MTV Best Breakthrough Performance Award, in addition to several other nominations, for her role as Fat Amy in the Pitch Perfect film series. Ironically, acting was not Rebel Wilson’s first choice as a career. In school she preferred working with numbers and envisioned being a mathematician. She earned a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Law degree in 2009 from University of New South Wales.

Following graduation, Wilson worked as a Rotary International Youth Ambassador for Australia. While based in South Africa, Rebel Wilson contracted malaria and over the course of her illness and fevers recalls a hallucination where she saw herself as an Oscar-winning actress which sealed her reserve to pursue acting as a full time career.
