This week, Chicago Recording Company Executive Producer Rose Razal grabs the mic for a round of Five Questions with SCREEN…
SCREEN: Your favorite Halloween costume ever?
ROSE: One of my favorite holidays is Halloween. I was a zombie nun with a bunch of friends. This was years before the Walking Dead and general zombie craze. Making the costumes from scratch and putting everyone’s make-up on was fun in and of itself.
SCREEN: What has been your favorite “stay-at-home” activity over the past few months?
ROSE: Being outside and active centers me. So, I have been doing a lot of jogging, bicycling, hiking and doing yoga. What the heck is there to do during the winter months? Any ideas, please let me know.
SCREEN: Most famous person you’ve ever met?
ROSE: One summer, I traveled with a friend and her family. The father was an owner of a national restaurant chain. We had dinner with Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher. I’m a huge fan of classic movies, especially musicals and of course a fan of STAR WARS. I loved the mother-daughter dynamic. They were both so gracious, funny and witty. I could tell by the way they spoke to each other and body language that they were very close.
SCREEN: If you could appoint ANYONE to be President of the United States, who would it be?
ROSE: I would vote for Michelle Obama. She is unifying and inclusive. She leads by doing, and by inspiring others to do.
SCREEN: What’s that TV show you’re a little embarrassed to admit you love to watch?
ROSE: OUTLANDER. It’s a cheesy soap opera disguised as a historical, action adventure with a bit of fantasy. A friend turned me on to it. I love cheesy romance novels.
SCREEN: Worst job ever?
ROSE: I’m grateful for every job I have had. Each one was a learning experience. The worst job was a summer gig in college. I went door to door asking for donations for the environment. It was countless doors slammed in my face and creepy guys inviting me in for lemonade.
SCREEN: What’s inspiring you today?
ROSE: My children. My daughter enjoys dancing, singing, and storytelling. My son enjoys writing and is starting to get into visual editing and animating. I admire their curiosity, tenacity and creativity.
