A bittersweet day today.
The 24th of February 2014. A date that will always be ingrained in my mind and etched on my heart.
This day last year myself and Ross found out the devastating news that our little baby Blue had no heartbeat.
I wrote about it and the difference that our tiny baby made in my last post. You can read it here: https://newaims.wordpress.com/2014/11/03/the-letter-miscarriage-awareness-month-october/
This blog post is about 2 things: A happy announcement and my final film related post for a while.
I made a film about my experience with losing a baby. Originally, it was a film for me, It was a way for me to gain closure. But a good friend of mine, recommended that I show this little film to the world. Even if it helps one woman come to terms with losing her child then it’ll be worth it.
I contacted the Miscarriage Association of Ireland and I got some great feedback from them and a couple of other close friends.
I started thinking that maybe this little film would be able to make a difference.
I entered it into an online competition called Women in Film and although I came 4th the film got some great and valuable feedback and it was seen by a lot of women.
These women described it as:
“An Amazing Piece”
“Genuinely heart-wrenching. Simply overwhelming”
So I’ve decided to post it today. It’s a very personal piece and one that I hope people will respect. It’s not easy putting such a raw and emotional piece of yourself out into the world.
If you know of anyone who could benefit from watching this film, please feel free to pass it along.
On a lighter note.
I am officially taking a break as Managing Director of New Aims Productions.
Over the next few months I’ll be focusing on my latest Production:
This will most likely be my last film related post for quite a while.
I’m looking forward to branching out into the trials and tribulations of juggling self employment and raising a little miniature film geek.
Wish me luck!
