  • An Ode to Fatherhood from Boba and Denver's Futuristic Films

    / Comments (0)

    After receiving a huge positive response from their "You Made Me a Mother" video, Boba — a small Colorado-based company that makes baby carriers and accessories — decided to produce the dads' companion piece with the same creative team. The director, Jasper Gray, of Futuristic Films in Denver, interviewed dads to find out how men changed when they became a father. Jasper worked with Laurenne Sala, the same writer who crafted the original, from the experiences of real dads.

    Since dads become more emotionally invested through their ongoing relationship with their kids (vs. moms whose emotional bond is immediate at birth and through the pregnancy), Boba decided to show dads first with their older kids — and feature interactions backwards in time to the moment they became a father. Dads' accounts of their relationship with their kids tend to be more filled with foibles and physical play, about becoming a better person through the re-prioritization, and no less of a complete surrender to love as the moms experienced.

    You'll feel good about every dad you know after watching it.
