I am Rae Dawn Chong.

I have been working in film and television for over 40 years (for my film credits see IMDB). It is with great pleasure I bring you The Celebrant, a pilot project for television that I have created. I play Xila (Sheelah) The Celebrant, a celebrant is a person who serves the community by bringing ceremony and mindfulness and spirituality to everything in life. As a community we help people heal through compassionate witnessing and all of this is done in a way that encompasses all that is authentic and spiritual and yet not attached to any one religious order, in fact respecting all religion as sacred.  

(If you'd like to watch the teaser go to the gallery)

We hope to  create a community that embraces the highest humanity has to offer without alienating those of us who may not understand  or want it.

Spirituality is not limited to one church or dogma. Without judgement and with high tolerance for all religions. Each episode we produce we get to delve into  life. Rich moments investigating and exploring  life in New England and how the worlds religions impact everyday life inside dramatic structure.  Using many decades of experience in the human potential movement our goal as producers of The Celebrant is to promote tolerance both as a writer and performer.

We are desperate to be witnessed because it heals when we can share the journey both those who are processing and those who are faciltating.

Your donation helps me and my crew achieve this goal. 

Every dollar we raise will go to production; equipment rentals, cast and crew, locations and post production costs. Every penney raised will be up on the screen. We will be paid scale and no aspect of the production will be wasted everything will be documented and the highest production value is our goal. Our goal of 25,000. although it is a micro budget in Hollywood terms it is doable and of course we will accept much more if we are blessed to recieve that! So donate away.

Because it is my personal project  I will be wholly responsible for the perks provided so I will be involved and responisble for everything we give. With nothing but the highest integrity and LOVE.

Now is the time for more spiritual content on television. Yes, it is important to have diversity, yes it is important to have well written content too.

I am excited to create content that is here to serve that market. As a boomer I long to see people of color and women of a certain age starring as leads on television.

Your donation helps to create intelligent, diverse, soulful content it helps us achieve this goal.  

THANK YOU!!!
