Heather Parry has been one of the world’s leading entertainment executives for more than two decades and believes the link between music and film is more important than ever. The recently released “Believer” shows musicians have more of a role in movies than simply appearing in their own live concert films. Live Nation Productions executive, Heather Parry has been working to change the way the world views musicians in film and believes the critical success of her studio is achieving its aims.
Live Nation Productions has been operating since 2015 when Heather Parry arrived from Happy Gilmore Productions to take the lead role at the company. Parry believes her goals are being met but have not been fully realized with dream projects still on the table for production. Parry is not interested in the traditional role of musicians on film simply performing their hits, but hopes to work with artists looking to make an impact with what they want to say.
One of the major causes undertaken by many of the artists Heather Parry is working with in 2018 and 2019 is the problems facing the LGBTQ community. Addressing the subject began with the release of the “Lady Gaga: Five Foot Two” documentary which detailed the life of the songwriter and her fans. The need to build on the work done to raise awareness about the complex issues facing the LGBTQ community has been enhanced with the release of “Believer” from Imagine Dragons singer, Dan Reynolds.
Born and raised in the Mormon Church, Reynolds documentary began as an exploration of the street performers of Las Vegas before morphing into an exploration of the conservative view of the community expressed by the Church in recent years. A critical success at various festivals, “Believer” shows musicians and artists can comment maturely on the subjects of the day.
