Producer Cara McKenney ’98 was awarded the Creative Arts Emmy for Outstanding Main Title Design by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for her work on the cable television series, Mad Men. Along with art directors Mark Gardner and Steve Fuller, Cara was part of a team at Imaginary Forces hired by Mad Men creator Matt Weiner to produce the opening title sequence. Mad Men, a hit drama series about a fictional ad agency in 1960’s New York, took home a total of four Emmys.
“It was one of the most creatively rewarding experiences for my team,” said McKenney in an interview with the Boston Globe.
After graduating Milton in 1998, Cara studied film at Middlebury College and moved to New York to pursue film production. Cara and her team at Imaginary Forces are currently finishing work for a Discovery documentary series and will soon begin the production of a title sequence for Pink Panther 2.
