Clare Macnaughton started the blog A Modern Military Mother in 2009 to help explain life from the other side of the British military. She wrote her blog as a reflection of her own experiences in a decade of marriage to a man who serves in the military. This was her truth. Despite her separation she cannot sever from military life completely, her husband still deploys to Afghanistan and her children are still impacted by the continued and prolonged absences of their father. She is still a modern, military mother.
In the last 18 months Clare has evolved from blogging, to vlogging (video blogging) and now to an inaugural BloggerTV show. AMMMTV is the UK’s first ever Parent Blogger produced TV. Shot on a very low budget in two days, the pilot show was produced in-conjunction with editor and director, Jim Klass and WingTV supplied the equipment. The logo was designed by KifiCreative and the music was created by Warminster musicians, The AHeads and Volatile Headspace. The making of the AMMTV pilot episode was a collaboration based on the generosity of a very talented community.
Clare Macnaughton is now seeking sponsorship and investment to create 10 x 30 minute episodes focussing on the reality of trying to be more self-sufficient, which in truth is about to working together with your community.
