CASTING CALL: Camp & Cabin Video Series for Snugabye
A series of short videos featuring four women who go camping to escape the stress and tensions of their everyday routine. These women adore each other and intervene in each other’s lives in order to rediscover and reinvent themselves, all the while lampooning the myths of the perfect wife, mother and family.
