Episode 14-Christy Lamb
This week on Hold the Drama, host Alison Robertson, sits down with Moms-in-Film co-founder Christy Lamb. This is a woman who has worn many hats in this world of show business but has found a home in producing. She shares some great stories about her journey in the business and the creation of Moms-in-Film. Since then she has been working tirelessly to spread the word of a family friendly set and what it would look like to #BudgetTheBaby. A project that is near and dear to her heart, the Wee Wagaon has been written up in several spaces including Variety and has had a run at Sundance and SXSW. And as if that weren’t enough, she is currently working on her own project, Birth Life Black White, a documentary that gets into the inequality that comes up during birth and post partum for women of color. If you are trying to navigate having a family and a career in this industry, this is an episode you can’t miss. Please enjoy!
