Steven Feinberg To Present "Imaginnaire" Award To Speaker William J. Murphy

This comes to us from Carol Patton, Publisher, Imagine Publishing, Inc.:

RI FILM OFFICE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR STEVEN FEINBERG TO PRESENT "IMAGINNAIRE" AWARD TO SPEAKER WILLIAM J. MURPHY

It's time to get together again to network and celebrate, and to honor our selected peers who have achieved excellence in their work through dedication to our industry.

IMAGINE has announced the following "Imaginnaires" so called because they are rich in creativity, thoughts and ideas. They are dedicated, insightful, and generous of themselves and their resources, which they use to serve our industry. They are:

Roger Lyons, Veteran of a 35-year television career and for the last 12 years Director of Commercial Production for BZ Productions, the commercial production unit for the CBS Boston television stations. He is best known for his work with the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences over the last 20-years.

William J. Murphy, Rhode Island Speaker of the House, Champion and Sponsor of Film Tax Incentives in Rhode Island, the first New England State to pass this type of attractive legislation. His leadership and vision put a spotlight on successfully incentivizing New England providing thousands of opportunities.

Don Packer, Award winning Editor, Musician, and Co-owner of Engine Room a full service broadcast design and post production facility in Boston. We toast him for his talent, skills, and abilities to creatively get the job done. He is also a founding member of the Massachusetts Production Coalition and general all around cheerleader for the industry and those in it.

Carolyn Pickman, Successful Casting Director who has helped hundreds of New England actors get the work. Her casting credits include "Brotherhood," GONE BABY GONE, THE DEPARTED, THE WOMEN, and THE BOX. In 2004, she was awarded the Artios Award for Outstanding Achievement in Local Casting for Clint Eastwood's MYSTIC RIVER.

Ernest Thompson, Academy Award winning writer for his American treasure, ON GOLDEN POND (which also won Golden Globe and Writer's Guild Awards), he's able to pursue acting, directing, and mentoring aspiring playwrights in New Hampshire very near where ON GOLDEN POND was filmed.

Congratulations! We view each of them as making a significant difference to our industry in New England. We are so very fortunate to have them in our midst!
