Heather Parry: Film Production Mogul
Heather Parry’s company Live Nation Production has proven to be a major player in the film production scene. After “A Star is Born” turned out be a hit, and with her many other successful works like “From Cradle to Stage,” with Miley Cyrus’ sister, she is starting to make a name for herself. She has a vast array of production skills which led her to branch out into other areas of film like music related films which can be seen in “A Star is Born.”
She stated, “I know Bradley, and as soon as I heard he was going to direct it I called his agent, who was on a ski lift at the time.” She recalled. “I said, ‘How does Live Nation get involved with this movie? We have venues and festivals and concert tours and all these assets and ways we can help you market,’ and he was like ‘I’m on a ski lift!,’” she laughs. “But to his credit, he called me right back” She went on to saying how she wound up at a party for Martha Stewart at one of the film’s producer’s house and she spent the majority of the time pitching her involvement in “A Star is Born.”
Before starting her own production company, Heather Parry had extensive experience in production through her time at MTV. At MTV, she was involved in films such as “Get Rich or Die Tryin”, and “The Longest Yard.” She claims that she also pitched the idea for the “Twilight” film series, but nobody thought it would do well, but it ended up bringing in billions of dollars.
After working with Adam Sandler on the “The Longest Yard” Heather partnered with Happy Madison Productions and went on to work on many Adam Sandler famed films.
