Retirees Recreate Iconic Scenes for Calendar Shoot

Posted By Bill Hogan On July 29, 2014 @ 10:32 am In Bulletin Today | No Comments

Inspired by a German retirement community’s viral success earlier this year with what one website lauded as “probably the best calendar ever,” residents of nine senior living communities across the United States have tweaked the concept to produce a homegrown calendar in which they recreate some iconic pop-culture scenes.

Proceeds from sales of the 18-month calendar (August 2014 – January 2016) will go to local charities chosen by each of the nine retirement communities.

The residents designed costumes and searched out props for each of the scenes, which were made calendar-ready through the magic of green-screen photography and, of course, some Photoshop.
