Latest Edition

MAY2015 Some times you just don’t know how things will turn out. We wanted to do an article about Geoff Eads, an IATSE lighting technician and his wife Kate McKenna, a professional baby and family photographer because the were the initiators of the kitchen table, organic website SAVEMAFILMJOBS.com. As good luck would have it Geoff has been pulling cable and grueling hours on set and Kate has been juggling the website, her business all while the two of them also care for their two year old twins. We wanted a photo of Geoff and Kate on the cover of this edition, but we ended up with a photo of their twin girls solely because we couldn’t get Geoff and Kate together long enough at the same time for a photo session. Fortunately, Kate did have a few minutes to capture her two girls, Greta and Elsa Eads in her studio having what looks to us a really fun time with the Film = Jobs banner. Voila! We could not have planned a better cover. Living proof Film Tax Credits in Massachusetts serve hard working families in Massachusetts. Read Geoff and Kate’s amazing story in this issue of IMAGINE on pages 18 and 19. See exactly how their efforts have placed in to the marketplace countless faces and stories about industry professionals who work in the Film and Television industry and depend on that work coming here.

Where is the respect that should be given to all that effort? This is what we are dealing with at this juncture. There was an enormous amount of energy plowed into creating Massachusetts Film Tax Credits. I honestly don’t believe that can be undone in one session.
