UNO documentary: 'Mompreneurs'

New Orleans is host to a plethora of bars and restaurants, a cultural highlight of the United States. It's also the playground of many budding families.

Co-founders of the New Orleans Moms Blog, Ashley and Elizabeth, identified a gap in the Big Easy's online community: a site for New Orleans moms to come together. The pair set out to fill this void by creating New Orleans Moms Blog, a site that links moms to their community and other moms within the GNO. The multi-author blog is host to a multitude of resources -- from articles on post-partum depression to seasonal activity suggestions, sponsored giveaways to group events.

Contributor Jennifer Bernard-Allen recently gave Demi Peralta, a film student in the Department of Film and Theatre at the University of New Orleans, a closer look behind the web platform bringing local moms together.

The Film and Theatre Department of UNO and NolaVie present this series of short films produced by the students in Laszlo Fulop's documentary class. Read Renee Peck's column about the program here.
