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.
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.
Here’s a sampling of scenes from the calendar. See if you can identify them before you peek at the captions.
