February 7th, from 9:30 to 1:30 PST, actress and filmmaker Celia Aurora de Blas, will be hosting a sexyogathon to raise money for her indie film Incredible Girl. The project, which has already raised over $5000 on Indiegogo needs to raise an additional $1000 before time runs out today. Inspired by Rob Gokee and Allison Vanore's Taco-A-Thon, which raised more than $2,800 during a similar live stream event back in January. For each $100 dollars donated, Celia will remove an article of clothing and perform 'sexier' yoga poses.
Celia, an Anusara yogini, and a regular contributor to the online yoga-themed publication, Elephant Journal, is well-qualified for her planned fundraiser. The 'sexyogathon' is good clean fun and in her words fits with the theme of the movie she is hoping to produce, which she describes as "a raw coming-of-age story," and is set in the gritty milieu of a strobe-lit, music-thumping club where body language speaks louder than words. Celia is hoping this latest sprint to the finish line will yield results and that her film will be able to go into production in March as planned.
The event will be streaming live on Ustream until 1:30 PST. Those who wish to contribute to the project and help strip Celia can do so here at Indigogo's website. Lastly, for those on the fence about contributing, consider this. If this project is successful it might well inspire other indie web and film producers to follow suit with their own 'sexython.'
