Me in a Minute: Project Mom Casting

project-mom-castingSo my fabulous blogging friend Ciaran Blumenfeld of Momfluential has managed once again to amaze me by coming up with a clever idea about a TV show based on mom bloggers.

Sadly, however, she is not in charge of casting, so I gave up on the idea of bribing her with chocolates and housekeeping services for a year, and hunkered down to make a video to apply for the casting call, no doubt like, oh, a few bazillion other mom bloggers out there. 

Still, I think my video came out pretty good, and I would have shared it on MommaSaid even if that wasn’t part of the rules for the Project Mom Casting Submission. If you’d like to submit your own video or written blog for the New York City casting call at BlogHer, you have until midnight PST on Monday, July 26th to post it here.

Meanwhile, if you like my entry, and you’d like to see me on TV on a regular basis, please do what the kindergarteners do: Share, share that’s fair.



Update August 2nd: Hurray! I was one of the 44 selected for the New York City casting call! Thanks for your support!

    Hi Jen,

    Wow! This video clip is magnificent. I can’t believe how big the boys are. You are truly an inspiration for women of all ages. My daughters would love you and relate so well. Big hugs to all and best wishes. I can only imagine great things happening to you. Please do not hesitate to call on me if needed.

    Best of luck on this!

    Wow, that video was incredible…completely brought tears to my eyes! You are an amazing person and they’d be CRAZY not to select you! You are so inspiring and would keep people tuned in for sure! Best of luck to you!

    Thanks Daisy.

    I did the video myself with Pinnacle Studio, pictures from iStock (though some are my own) and music and sound effects (including the kid laughing) from Audio Jungle.

    Thanks for the kind words!

    Wow – I am late to this party, but wanted to second the accolades. That video was so polished (this is why you are in the big leagues I guess….do you have a video tech guru that you like?) but what I loved most was the matter-of-fact presentation of it all. And that nice long laugh at the end — it struck the perfect note. (I keep an mp3 of my own guy chuckling to use whenever I need a boost or a reminder of what matters. I don’t think there is anything that gets to me like a child laughing.)

    I don’t think they even know yet how the show is going to go, so I would suspect that the people who get chosen may help figure that out.

  8. Cheryl DeGennaro

    I would be willing to bet that they choose you! I hope you get on! Do you know what they are requiring of the people on the show?
