sep2016-cover Mike Pecci: Emotionally Focused Storyteller is our cover story. His 12 KILOMETERS is a genuine horror story in Russian with English subtitles. Dina Konovalov captured Mike for our cover and really loved the assignment. “When I heard that IMAGINE chose me to photograph Mike Pecci for the cover, I immediately knew that it will be an exciting and creative shoot. I am a huge fan of Mike’s work and love his dark/colorful/vibrant taste in imagery (something that I also enjoy in my personal work). After our initial email ‘chat’ we had agreed that the shoot would reflect a bit of his latest movie – 12 KILOMETERS. “I have arranged to use the basement space of the building of my studio which is more like a dungeon and Mike gladly approved after I sent him a few snaps. The dungeon has no electricity, some hints of once-alive-animals rotting on its muddy floors, tons of pigeon ‘treats’ and weird dust periodically flushing down from the ceiling – in other words, a perfect place for us! “When Mike arrived, my assistant, Maria Yablonsky, and I were still setting up the lighting which took longer than anticipated as we had to move slowly in this not-the-safest location. Once we were set to go, Mike was a great sport to crawl around the place and possibly step into questionable debris. Mike loved the texture of the surroundings and brought a couple of props from this movie which made him more comfortable in front of the camera (something he admitted he was not used to). The coat and the helmet you see in the shot were used in his recent film and had added some authenticity to the look Mike was going for. I chose to light the space using colorful gels and dramatic lighting to reflect the mood we were after and, after some post-production work – the photos were ready to go into print. “I can’t say enough of what a down-to-earth, humorous and knowledgeable subject Mike turned out to be. We chatted before, during and after our shoot and, as two creatives, found a lot of common ground to base our conversation on. It was an absolute honor and privilege to have worked with such talent and meet an amazing guy – Mike Pecci. Thanks IMAGINE for the opportunity – hope the readers enjoy this cover image.” Dina Konovalov of Dina K Photography

I get excited about the American Film Market (AFM) every year. We are media partners with AFM and attend bringing our New England outreach to the hotbed of the hottest film market in the Western Hemisphere.

In our next edition we will assemble “pitch articles” for as many New England movie projects that make the cut and will fit in our magazine. The movie can be in any stage of development from concept to completion and whether you need a writer for an idea, a producer or a production company for a completed script, talent, a director, finishing funds, foreign sales and distribution, you may find it at AFM. AFM means unlimited possibilities.
