Marit plans to use funds raised through this campaign to produce her third and most ambitious project, The White World.
Marit is the protégé of master documentarian, filmmaker and multiple Emmy winner, Dale Sonnenberg. Dale had been seeking an apprentice for years. He felt compelled to share his gift of knowledge and passion for filmmaking with someone who understood that passion. Someone with Autism.
Enter Marit Rawley, a young woman who knows a thing or two about the challenges of growing up with Autism. She also has a passion for movies. Through a mutual friend, Polly Arango, Dale and Marit meet. They agree to a common goal : make ten films together, no matter how long it takes.
After five years of meeting with Dale every Tuesday at 1:00 pm, Marit has completed two short films and is currently editing a "self" documentary.
We are seeking

three daughters : Ashley, born from his first marriage with actress Teri Copley in 1982, and
Alexandra and Angelica, born from his third marriage with actress Shauna Sullivan (he had been married between them to Eileen Davidson, ex-Kelly Capwell, between 1985 and 1987).
The Santa Barbara fans will undoubtedly miss him.
