I Wrote A Short Film!

still from short comedy film

Yes I have! I wrote a short film, and have since been donning my finest eye patch, and dancing around my living room, channelling my finest inner Gabrielle circa 1993, singing ‘Dreams Can Come True.’ Yes. I’m proud…!

I was contacted by the producers of Masked Pony Productions about a year ago, to see if I’d write this for them, as part of their ‘Mum’ based comedy series. It has now been filmed, edited, given sound (and all the technical terms I don’t really understand!) and is here! It’s based on my blog posts (so actually all terrible things that have happened to me since I became a parent…!) and Katy Poulter, who plays ‘me’ has it right down…!

Have a gander, it contains all the things you’d probably expect from me-extreme calpol inhalation, incontinence, and postnatal belly references!

You can follow Masked Pony Productions on Twitter and Facebook and Youtube!

    Really enjoyed this. The leaving the house scene is almost too real to be funny, but smashing donuts in the face of the smug mums is the best. Very funny ending. #bigpinklink

      I agree, trying to leave the house is mainly more tear inducing than funny…!!

    Hi, how impressive is this, it has prompted me to get my but into actions and do something I really want to try which does not involve writing or filming #BloggerClubUK

      Can I really say that…?! The mums at school keep asking me what I do, and as I do equal amounts of ‘other stuff’ as well as parenting these days, I sometimes say ‘oh, I’m a writer… of sorts, kind of, maybe not really…!!’ I still fraudulent saying it, like I need special permission from someone, or for it to be verified!!! Maybe I’ll start saying it with conviction, and owning it!! X
