The Spirit of Indie Roots

Making films is like doing magic. Even with a clear plan, a lot is up to chance. The best films show their true selves as you make them, a journey that doesn't always go as planned but is still personal. Still, it's a satisfying, hardworking adventure, with each day bringing its unique set of charming problems needing to be solved in a creative way.

Moonshine Films served as an experiment era in pushing for outcomes that seem unreachable using traditional methods. You learn to make films by building films with the tools and resources on hand.

For two decades, Moonshine Films served as Santiago's filmmaking moniker. Originating in South Florida, it ventured through LA and notably thrived on the bustling streets of NYC. The ethos was straightforward: create DIY films by any means necessary, driven by no particular rationale other than, we must do it.

Santiago crafted numerous ambitious features, yet bringing them to life often requires both a budget, dedicated team and strategic distribution plan. The unpredictable nature of the film industry means that, at times, a lack of funds hinders these creative works from evolving beyond the script. Ultimately, it's all about timing.
