Farewell Mr. Rickman, thank you.

By | Baby Jade, Blog, Uncategorized | No Comments

Today we lost one of the greatest actors  of our time. I’ve always been fascinated by the impact the loss of a celebrity has on our society. I’m in awe that even though you may have never met the deceased, we still feel an emptiness in their passing. It wasn’t until we lost Alan Rickman that I understood why we feel that sharp pain in our hearts. He brought life to characters in such a way, you’d swear they were written just for him. I was introduced to Alan Rickman in Die Hard. Fell in love with him in Sense and Sensibility. Pissed at him in Love Actually. And thank him for his effortless portrayal of Severus Snape, in my favorite literature series: Harry Potter. Then I start to think of Sweeny Todd… Dogma.. and realize the list never ends.

Some of my friendships blossomed because of our mutual love for A.R. It’s always a sad day when we lose great artists, but this one hurts on a deep and personal level. You shall forever be missed, Rickman. ‘Always’

Sundancing BTS

By | Baby Jade, Blog, Uncategorized | No Comments

When you work in an industry like Hollywood, it’s certainly easy to lose sight of how #lucky you are. Being swept up in a fast paced world full of chaos, your feelings can veer towards anxiety/stress rather than sheer bliss. ‘Cause let’s face it, I’m damn lucky! But sometimes I need reminding….We’re two weeks away from Sundance, and as it approaches, I had to sit back for a minute and appreciate what it all means. I am going to be at indie film mecca (for me anyway). The films that premiere at Sundance Film Festival are some of the best films to come out for the year. For a week, I get to be surrounded by #cinema #creatives. Holy shit! While it’s primo for networking, it’s also f*cking fantastic that I’ll be able to soak up all the #magic, as it happens! Don’t get me wrong, I work hard AF, and the labor is tiring, but at the end of the day, I wouldn’t want it any other way. I am one lucky mother–shut your mouth! I’m talking ’bout Sundance. I can dig it.

Update 1/28: Had the pleasure of hearing Nate Parker talk about the arts and he had this to say: “This is what leadership in the arts looks like.”
