The fall and winter seasons in Massachusetts conjure different images for different people–as a brand new transplant to Boston, my personal totem is the Michelin man. After years living in arid climates of the American west, I am unaccustomed to the bitter, humid breezes and find myself wearing my puffy North Face jacket almost perpetually around the office of Interlock Media. But no matter your own emblem for these colder months, there is another moniker that likely resonates with you: someone stricken by the flu, coughing incessantly, with a sore throat and a dripping nose.
The Massachusetts film community, at the behest of Director Jonathan Schwartz, came out in great numbers to raise awareness of health and safety within the motion picture industry. Forty volunteers ranging from production personnel to stylists, donated an overwhelming amount of time and energy in support of wellness in the making of movies and TV shows.
