Babe is hard at work. Here's what's developing at Blue Ox.
The Blue Ox Creative team is currently developing both a feature length documentary film and a narrative short film. "Mid Drift," a documentary about the postpartum experience around the world, has begun principal photography and is currently fundraising. Our short film, "In the Yellow Wood" is in pre-production with a shoot scheduled in 2016.
Documentary Film: Mid Drift
Exposing the soft under belly of motherhood
Blue Ox Creative is teaming up with Angie and Mike Sonrode to produce their feature length documentary which explores postpartum body image in Western culture and beyond.
America's obsession with "body after baby" is harmful to mothers, leading many to believe their postpartum body isn't good enough. Mid Drift aims to shift the conversation to embrace the challenges and magic of motherhood. We'll explore the impact postpartum body struggle has on the spouse and family and we'll visit cultures around the world to discover alternative ways to serve and embrace mothers.
