So It Goes Short is Here!

Back in 2015, Mary and her friend Justin Carlton, as well as Ryan Kattner from Honus Honus did a kickstarter for a short musical film previously titled “Studio Apartment” which was later changed to “So It Goes”. The film follows Mary’s character, who loses her creative spark, but finds it along the way after meeting a stranger.

The short eventually went on to premiere at the Seattle Shorts Film Festival and the Napa Film Festival last year.
