In the film, Tracey Mills who was abandoned by his mother and abused by his father as a child shares his story of how he made it through the trials and tribulations. How he started under the wings of Christian Audiger on his rise with Von Dutch & Ed Hardy. It depicts how Tracey went on to be a creative consultant for the Yeezy collection by Kanye himself and eventually creating his own apparel Visitor On Earth.

What is your new film about?

Making It Against All Odds is an animated documentary on the life story of Tracey mills. Who was abandoned by his mother and abused by his father as a child? He shares his story of success and reveals how he made it. Starting under the wings of Christian Audiger he helped the rise of von Dutch and ed hardy, Tracey then became the creative consultant to Kanye West, which led him to launch his own brand Visitor on Earth.

What is the meaning behind it?

For me, its very Forward, growing up watching actors, models, designers be successful always felt like it was magical, one day it just happened for them. So I wanted to create something very forward and tell it how it is and Tracey has been extremely generous with sharing his life story to empower those that are living the same thing or that are going through a hard time.

How will the viewer relate to this story? What will they learn?

We all have different experiences and some are more difficult than others but this film will show you perseverance and self-love can really get you through those hard times. This film will show you the bad times, the good times but also Tracey’s unique sense of humor. Thought his story I believe that there is a lot we can apply to our thinking, to be the best version of ourselves. And even to those that are fortunate and privileged, I think this is a film that would build their empathy.

Where was it filmed?

The interview was shot in Los Angeles at the Milk studio and the animation was done in Toronto.

When did you know you wanted to be a director?

When I first had the idea of creating this film, it was so clear to me visually thought the best person that could do it is me. I like to give artistic freedom to the people I work with and I knew that I would have not been able to do so in this case. There is really nothing worst for an artist then being creatively restrained.

Who/what inspired you to create this piece of art?

Tracey Mills

What drew me too this project was when I realized how many people I knew had a very difficult upbringing and never shared their story, even after achieving success. I want it to not only inform but empower and encourage my generation and the next. For me, this documentary is a way to motivate the way we think and is crucial for social cognition.

How does acupuncture work? All you need to know

Acupuncture work

Chinese traditional medicine is considered very effective. It consists of many unique methods of treating diseases. Many countries around the world are studying these theories and are beginning to apply them in practice in their clinics. One of these methods is acupuncture. It helps cope with a large list of diseases as well as improve the overall condition of the organism. You can undergo the procedure at a Cross-Up Chiropractic clinic, which employs qualified specialists.

Briefly on the term “acupuncture”

Acupuncture (acupuncture) is an ancient Chinese treatment method. During the procedure, the patient is injected with special needles into the biologically active points. According to Chinese theory, it is believed that the Qi energy is flowing in a person, and only this energy can ensure good health. If it starts to stagnate, various diseases occur. There are over 500 such active points on the human body. They are all connected to each other.

Acupuncture helps:

  • reduce pain;
  • improve the condition of the skin, hair and nails;
  • restore normal hormone synthesis;
  • increase overall immunity;
  • to flush out all the toxins;
  • remove muscle cramps;
  • improve blood circulation.

Acupuncture can really help with a problem with any system of the body.

How does acupuncture work?

A course of acupuncture can only be performed by a specialist who has appropriate training and a license. A person must know when and in what place to insert needles depending on the disease.

The session usually takes place in the comfort of a warm, quiet place on a soft couch. The right amount of needles is injected into a certain part of the body (depending on the problem). The patient usually feels nothing and there is no pain. The session lasts for 15-30 minutes. Then the acupuncturist takes the needles out.

Three to 15 sessions may be needed to improve your health. Everyone feels differently after the treatment. Some feel relaxed and sleepy, others feel a burst of energy.

What can and can’t be done after the procedure?

Immediately after the session, it is recommended that you just lie down for 10-15 minutes and drink water. But these are not all the rules that must be observed. For the duration of the treatment and for two weeks after it, you can’t:

  1. Take any alcoholic beverages. Keep coffee and tea to a minimum. It is better to ask your doctor how much you can drink per day.
  2. Heavy physical activity. Many people feel so energized after the first sessions that they are ready to do something and exercise around the clock. This is not the way to do it. It is better to let the body rest.
  3. Strong drugs like antidepressants, painkillers, and antibiotics are forbidden. Before starting therapy, it is better to ask a specialist about the compatibility of medications and acupuncture.

And the most important point is that for effective results, you need to take a full course of acupuncture. Some patients see an improvement after the second or third time and decide that they have had enough. This is categorically not the way to do it. Only a completed course can benefit the body.
