I am the creator of a small independent film company called Pocha Productions. Pocha Productions is an independent film company created by Christen Celaya. Pocha Productions’ mission is to engage an inter sectional feminist U.S Latinx perspective through cinematic story-telling and to empower latinx creatives and people of color at every level of production. I want to challenge audiences, regardless of gender identity, to examine what it means to see the world through a female gaze. I have spent my artistic career unpacking what the feminine voice and the feminine gaze means and I want to share the overlooked value of this gaze and inspire audiences to do so as well.

Charlotte Marie
Hello! My name is Charlotte Marie and I am an award winning filmmaker, producer, director and actor. I also run and own CharM productions that produce films, teasers, trailers, promo and music videos, along with a 10 weeks to success incubator program for entrepreneurs. Currently I have 2 start ups in incubation: Angel Bags (Care Packages for people experiencing homelessness) and Opportunity rising (Creating Job Opportunities for individuals in transitional homes). I gained her nonprofit knowledge by running and co-chairing The New Hollywood and Hollywood Gives for 10 years. Recently I summited Kilimanjaro, a dormant volcano in Tanzania which is the highest mountain in Africa, and rises approximately 19,341 ft above sea level. Kilimanjaro is considered one of the 7 summits of the world. I have also completed my Rescue Diver Training for Scuba Diving and currently studying for my Dive Master Certification. I continue to grow by expanding my knowledge by becoming a Life coach, Reiki Master, EFT Tapping, and Advanced NLP Practitioner. For fun she also decided to obtain certifications in Animal Communication, Emotional Intelligence, Leaving the Bubble, Shamanism, Effective Time Management, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Depression, Anxiety, Phobias, Panic Attacks, Addiction, Happiness, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, Neurocognitive and Behavioral Approach and Master Classes with Aaron Sorkin and Werner Herzog. Currently I am studying Yoga, Transcendental Meditation, After Effects, Final Cut Pro, Copywriting while completing her Masterclass in Photography. ​ While I tell you all this...it was not that long ago I would have kept it under wraps about how awesome I am!! Just Kidding! But seriously I would have deflected any accomplishments or activities I was up to in fear of being too much or making others uncomfortable. ​ Sounds crazy I know, but that is where the terms like "haters" or "keeping someone small" come into play. It was more comfortable for me to not be seen then it take the "backlash" or "comments" from others. ​ I want to inspire others to PLAY A BIG GAME! Playing small does not serve anyone, especially you! ​ Imagine what you can create when you let the world see your sparkle!

Douglas Vail
2 (100%)
Douglas's desire to make films started at a young age and led him to writing and directing a portfolio of short films, web series and documentaries. His work has garnered further recognition in ad campaigns for his graphic urban web series, "Pinnacle Heights" and he has earned high acclaim for his marketing career in the medical imaging community. But even more defining than Doug's desire to make films is his growing passion for the Gospel. By God's grace and the power of His Word, Doug's growing desire to see God be glorified led him to redirect his focus from making Hollywood films to the even more exciting goal of seeing God's name proclaimed throughout the nations. After several months of traveling and reading extensively the word of God, Doug felt a clear call of the Lord to use his gifts in full-time ministry by starting FaithWorks Pictures in 2017.
