Our cover story was so big this year that we actually needed two covers to cover it! It was
quite a collaborative effort that was directed by many people on a number of levels. Actor
and Director Rosemary Pacheco came up with the original idea which went through many
reincarnations. Carlyne Fournier tended to many specific details concerning biographies
On the front cover are Karen Ann Martino, Andrea Lyman, Mary Hronicek, Jeanne Lohnes (front)
Jan Waldman (back) Charlie Alejandro and Paula Dellate. On the BackCover are Pat (Sissy) O’Hara, Rosemary Pacheco, Elaine Victoria Grey, Marilyn Baker(front), Carlyne Fournier (back) Camille Farnan and Lin Hultgren.
The story is about fourteen actors over the age of fifty who are absolute over achievers and
loving every minute of it.
Red Sky Studios in Alston, MA became the home of a full day shoot the last week in October. Thank you Tiffany Kinder for both your hospitality and lighting technology and the beautiful studio to work in.
Our makeup was by Jessica Nagle of Masquerade and Noel McKinnon of Makeup to Die For. They were ably assisted by students Devo Romario, Samantha Frazer, Charlotte Berry, Shannon Bromberg from Toni & Guy Hairdressing Academy in Braintree, MA.
The front and back covers and the centerfold were captured by Dina K Photography. And the whole process was assisted by IMAGINE intern Alysa Browne.
IMAGINE’s Design Editor Monique Walton created the designs for both covers and the centerfold.
We hope you enjoy all the stories in this edition dedicated to Women Who Work in the Industry. We began this special effort in 1999 because women were deficient in the ink they received from industry publications. We don’t need to do it anymore as those trends are reversed in IMAGINE particularly, but we continue the tradition because it is so popular.
Writer/Producer/Director Carl Hansen and I attended the American Film Market representing IMAGINE Magazine November 4th – 11th in Santa Monica, CA.
