Sebastian A. Guerra
Director. Film maker. Creative Visual Story Teller.
Between exposure to Star Wars movies at an early age and my family’s weekly outing to theaters, I quickly became enraptured with the filmmaking process turning my siblings, cousins and friends into my muses as an auteur of short skits and music videos. By middle school, we had created videos with thousands of views. Raised in a family filled with musicians, dancers and writers, it seems only natural that my love for making movies has weaved in elements of both music and stories.
Born to parents of South American, Scandinavian and Spanish roots, raised in the most diverse neighborhood of Chicago and as a proud product of Chicago’s Public School system, I was destined to approach my visual storytelling and film making through a multi-cultural lens which has empowered my creativity with innovative approaches speaking authentically to many. Museums, books, concerts, plays and productions were a constant in my upbringing which has fruitfully led me down a path to provide unique elements to stories that need be told in visually pleasing way.
Fortunate to have been a graduate of both Marwen Arts and Gallery 37 / After School Matters’ Film and Video Production programs, my movie making “hobby” quickly converted my passion for film and post production expertise to win awards on behalf of my beloved Alma Mater, Lane Tech College Prep’s Media program.
Having met my lifelong idol, George Lucas, during my senior year, receiving his encouraging feedback on my scripts and film direction cemented the desire to follow my passion as a film maker. Shortly after having relocated to Los Angeles for college, I began directing and dedicated my talents to movie production.
My work includes filming and directing videos for Chicago natives Chance the Rapper and Alex Wiley as well as working on productions for Jayden Smith and creating music videos for YouTube influencers Logan Paul, Jake Paul, Mark Dohner, George Janko and
Amanda Cerny/Prince Royce/Shakira amongst many others. Driven by the desire to create visual stories for talented people, my latest projects with up and coming artists have provided a forum to promote their talent. Having worked with Bravo TV, Trending All Day and movie productions, I am well versed in the world of multimedia platforms and a passionate auteur of making videos
My expertise in post-production has enabled me to be able to work creatively and successfully on both ends of every one of my productions. Grounded in my Midwestern roots, my work ethic is second to none. As my passion, my work is my world.

Looking forward to working on your next high-end project!
