SKY MELT is a small production company formed in 2014 to house our passion projects.
It is a means to create work outside of a financial motive.
After working in LA for a few years, Matthew Wade & Sara Lynch moved back home to make their feature film debut, How the Sky Will Melt, in late 2014. They created Sky Melt as the banner under which they self-distributed the film digitally, as well as in some festivals, and continued creating work with their long-time core team (Sara, Jacob Kinch, and Matthew).
Since its release in 2015, Sky Melt’s passion projects have premiered at Slamdance Film Festival (3 times), San Francisco International Film Festival, ExGround, Alchemy Film & Arts, Portland Film Festival, Maryland Film Festival, Rhode Island International, Sun Valley Film Festival, GIRAF, Northwest Filmmakers’ Festival, Northwest Film Forum’s annual Local Sightings, and dozens more around the world.
Sky Melt’s films have been covered in Filmmaker Magazine, Film Threat, NoBudge, Cartoon Brew, Hammer to Nail, Brooklyn Magazine, Vancouver Film School, and more.
Sky Melt received two grants in 2018 (from the Brooklyn-based Flies Collective and Boise-based Alexa Rose Foundation) for their new feature film, A Black Rift Begins to Yawn, which they are hoping to premiere in early 2020.
