This is a unique opportunity for a couple wanting to start a family.
I am producing a documentary film on the journey from attempting pregnancy to the first few months of the baby's life. I am after a couple where this will be their first time pregnancy. Each month, I would follow the couple engaging in activities relating to the pregnancy eg: anti-natal class, picking baby names, buying baby products, the actual birth etc.
This documentary would be filmed over twelve months (one or two days per month). Each month (segment) would represent a milestone. Filming locations would be those that naturally occur in the couple's environment. For example their home, shops, motor vehicle, hospital. Whilst there are agendas to be covered in each sequence, additional material may become available through the unfolding of real life. Whilst both people would be interviewed and filmed, there would be a focus on the first time father - his experiences as each month passes. Whilst no payment would be made for your involvement, the film would provide a rare and unique record of the first twelve months of parenthood. There is also the opportunity for this to be possibly screened at film festivals and on television.
The following is offered as a outline for those that may be interested.
