UPPAbaby + Leslie Osborne | Product promotional video

This spring, Long Haul Films collaborated with our long-term client, UPPAbaby strollers, on the production of a video featuring Leslie Osborne– a retired pro-soccer player turned successful businesswoman and super mom-of-three. Leslie brings a new look to the old school view of what it means to be a “soccer mom.”

Long Haul Films handled creative development, pre-production, and post-production for this project, which filmed in location with Leslie and her family in Northern California. The concept of the video, titled My Hope, centered on Leslie’s hopes for the lives of her three young daughters, while tapping into feelings shared by Mothers everywhere as the envision the future for their children. released to coincide with the Women’s World Cup, the video also reflects the juggling act that many Moms face as they balance family life with their careers, their physical fitness, and their friendships.
