From Web Hosting to Film Producer
It’s been a while since we last spoke, and many things have happened in my life on several planes. You were an influential figure in this transition process and I wanted to update you!
Work-wise I decided to make a documentary on the jewish vision of marriage, as I discovered (too late) that all the information for a successful marriage is contained within judaism, but most jewish people don’t know this, so I wanted to share it plus I was itching to try something to further my research of the film path. The project was very difficult but thank G-d we premiered it about a month ago and it was hugely successful. It’s a non-profit project, I didn’t charge a penny for it because it was my contribution to my jewish brothers, specially all the divorcees (the divorce rate has reached 30% within our community, which is historically very high). The documentary will be distributed for free in all spanish-speaking countries, partly with the help of other jewish organizations, and now suddenly I’m a famous person, at least within the jewish community. Incredibly several proposals have come forth to do more film/video, etc. and I will make a final decision after my honeymoon, but it’s looking quite likely that I’ll make that final jump.
Take care, and do let me know how you are.

Dear Anthony, how does it? Hope all is well…
I don’t recall at what point we “spoke” last about the documentary I produced which hopefully marked the start of my new career. In any event you can now download it for free from the Internet: www.proyectomazaltov.com and then clic DOWNLOAD. Remember it’s in spanish, but still you’ll appreciate some of the images and also I give a little intro at the beginning. It’s been a huge success and some of the comments I¥ve received from couples etc are incredible!
Warm regards, Ricardo
