As film aficionados at heart, we thought it best to express the values that motivate our company through the language of cinema, citing some of our favorite quotes, and how they've laid the foundation of Umbrelic Entertainment.
"Be excellent to each other."
Bill S. Preston, Esquire. Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure.
(It's a difficult business, and everyone is fighting their own batle. Demonstrate empathy and kindness to your fellow travelers).
"Yeah, the beauty of this is its simplicity. If it gets complex, everything can go wrong."
Walter Sobchak, The Big Lebowski.
(Keep everything simple, honest, and direct. Once it gets too complicated, there is a greater likelihood of disappointment).
"Even miracles take a little time."
Fairy Godmother, Cinderella.
(Be patient. Nothing comes easy, and projects are difficult to get of the ground. The magic of film isn't found overnight).
"Rule #76: No excuses. Play like a champion."
Chazz Reinhold's Playbook, Wedding Crashers.
(Failure happens. Don't let it consume you. Show commitment and focus on the task at hand. Get the job done).
"The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few."
Spock, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.
(Be a team player. Demonstrate confidence when appropriate, but keep your ego in check, and always fight for the greater good).
"Be Cool...You, be cool..."
Seth Gekko, From Dusk Till Dawn.
Relax, chill out, and enjoy the ride. No one ever said it was easy...but no one said it can't be fun, either.
