Hi, loves. Tracy here, soap maker extraordinaire. 💖 At any given moment these days it may feel like the world is going to hell in a hand basket, as my dear old Dad likes to quote his Mom as saying. Times are WEIRD and difficult and changing but they are also amazing! I'm going to take a break from listening to my brain ☝️and make a heart post for a moment.
In just over a week we will be back in New York to participate in the World Maker Faire for our third year as part of the BUST Magazine Craftacular! I'm so proud and amazed that this is even possible, it is a total dream come true and 3x?! Well, 3 is my favorite number so you know it will be great! There's no way I would have managed these without Matty. He showed this Yuma-girl how to get around the big big city and his family there treats me like I am their own. Well, on top of being hugely supportive of Strawberry Hedgehog and an integral part of my life and our success at the Maker Faire, he's been busy being a creative dynamo and big things are happening!!
Play The Documentary at Brooklyn Conservatory of Music
While we are in New York, the first night of the Maker Faire he was asked to screen his first full length film, Play the documentary, at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music! What an honor!
The Process With Calais Campbell on ESPN
Matty's dream has been to make a powerful sports film and this year he did just that! Not only did he film a spectacular documentary of Calais Campbell's free agent period, it is now playing on ESPN through producers, Uninteruppted!
Snake River Blues the documentary on Amazon
This time last year Matty left for a month to document the process of a one month residency in New York for our friend, Decker. This film is now streaming for free on Amazon Prime! Holy smokes! First film on Amazon is a huge deal! More to come..
YRSB hits the film festival circuit!
Last but certainly not least, his latest collaborative project with Pita Juarez, and his second feature length documentary, has now been submitted to Sundance and Tribeca Film Festivals!
To top it all off he is shifting to shiny new business name that better represents the vitality and limitless nature of his creations, Mango Skies Films is here! Please follow along on Twitter and Instagram @mangoskiesfilm 👌😘 The best is yet to come and I am so grateful to have Matty in my life and for all the magic he contributes to this world. 💖💖💖
