For Publisher Rachel Galvin, the magazine, which will feature local Florida and international content, has become a labor of love.
In MAY, Independent Streak Magazine (I.S.) was launched to the world with Jason Priestly ("Beverly Hills 90210") on the cover and an inside story about his independent film "Cas & Dylan." It also featured articles on other films, directors and actors. Another highlight was an interview with Master Sang, a world reknowned martial artists who was in "Rush Hour 2" & "Rush Hour 3" as well as involved in the upcoming Brett Ratner film, "Hercules."
For the JUNE issue, I.S. stepped it up a notch with classy actress Joan Collins on the cover, best known for her role in "Dynasty." In addition, a two page article about her ups and downs in the world of acting graces the front of the magazine. Filmmakers can find content on how to make a documentary or read an interview with a director who has used special effects. They can learn about how making a film in their hometown might be a better approach than in Los Angeles or New York. Up and coming local actress Julie Kendall is spotlighted and Aussie actress Kelly Pantaleoni, whose film was just at Cannes, talks about the fest, how she got into character and her move to Los Angeles.
