I've been quite busy and I sorta kinda neglected my blog. But for good reason. I've been transitioning into film. I made a short film in December of 2013, titled Grandma's Hands. It was accepted into the River City Film festival. Woohoo! Wish me luck in winning.
Just recently, I finished my first comedy web series called Unplanned Motherhood. We officially wrapped this past Monday. It's a six episode web series, it's for the perfectly imperfect parents in the world. It stars myself, as Layla, a wife and mother of five that gives professional parenting advice on her real life mommy blog. Her unique parenting style contradicts the perfect parenting advice she gives on her blog, which lends to a distinct brand of humor. With each episode, Layla tries to teach her kids important life lessons, only to discover more about herself and her parenting advice.
What is truly unique about this web series is Layla has a real life blog where she will actually give parenting advice. And after most of her posts, the readers get to see an episode of the web series where her real/fake life is shown. As we all do sometimes in life, we can give others the perfect advice, but it can be quite difficult to take our own advice. So for the perfectly imperfect, this web series is for you.
