MW: Why did you create Plan B the web series? When is the launch of Plan B? Where can we find it?
PB: We created Plan B in order to give a voice to the women that are seen but not always heard. We are living in a time in where the empowerment of women is extremely important. Mothers, specifically, are like the unseen heroes who are important to building our society and we don’t think they get enough credit for what they do. There are so many interesting, scary, and funny things about motherhood that “they” don’t tell you about and we wanted mothers to know that they are not alone. What’s wonderful, is that 3 of the creators of this production are in fact, mothers, and so they are able to add much insight and tell their stories as well.
We are planning the launch of our crowd-funding campaign for the project on Mother’s Day, May 14th. This launch will include the sizzle reel to our project in hopes of getting sponsors and donations for the full season one, which is already written and complete.
We will launch the campaign using Indie-Go Go and information regarding the series can be found on our Facebook page We will also post fun photos and updates on our IG and Twitter pages.Our website is in progress but will launch on May 14th.
MW: What challenges did you face when creating this new web series?
PB: When writing Plan B, there were some serious topics that came up regarding parenthood and motherhood. We wanted to touch on those topics, because they were important, but still keep the light-heartedness and humor of the show. Scheduling shoot dates was also a challenge as is with many indie productions.
MW: What do you want your viewers to get from watching Plan B?
PB: We want to challenge our viewers on what motherhood is? We are so quick to judge nowadays, and from the outside looking in, we determine what being a good mother or bad mother is. I like to challenge perspective, which is my personal goal as a filmmaker, and I think we do just that with this project.
It’s also a tribute to mothers as well, like a statement of, “We know your pain! But we also know your joys…” I think it’s very important that I throw that in there, because although in this show it’ll be easy to joke about the struggles of motherhood, we want viewers to figure for themselves if it’s worth it.
MW: Who inspires you to create content for mothers?
PB: Some of our own mothers inspire us to create content for mothers and the mothers in this group are mothers that inspire us to create this content. Even the mothers we see at the grocery store have inspired us to write this content.
MW: Do you believe that mothers can truly have it all?
PB: My answer is a question as well: What does it mean to have it all and do you really want it?
MW: Where do you see Plan B in the next five years?
PB: We see “Plan B” really growing an audience and building a strong, relatable fan-base. Hopefully, you see “Plan B” expand from an internet-based series to a television series!
MW: What one word would describe you for 2017?
