Magical Inspiration

This photo makes me smile so I thought I’d share it with you. It was taken on the set of The Post in 2017. I love it because it shows my face right after Steven Spielberg introduced me to Meryl Streep as we were about to rehearse a scene. One of the most magical experiences of my career so far, with two dreams coming true at once.

Watching Steven work with the cast and crew inspired me so much that I co-founded a production company later that year. Our first major project is in development and the process has been filled with its own magic, mainly from the amazing partners I get to work with. If you’d asked me five years ago if I would ever consider producing, I would’ve laughed at the thought. Funny how life can still surprise you if you listen to that little voice in your heart. 💜

Another thing my little voice tells me is we all need more reasons to smile these days. To that end, check out these cute baby flamingos. 🦩🦩🦩 

Sending you a giant hug,
Amy Russ
