From Homeless to Profitable Indie Filmmaker with Antonio Pantoja

Today on the show we have an amazing and inspirational story from filmmaker and entrepreneur Antonio Pantoja. Antonio is an Indie Film Hustle School graduate, as he puts it. He has been listening to the podcast since the beginning and has used everything he has learned to build up his career and finally direct his first feature film One Must Fall.

In Louisville, KY, 1986 a crime scene cleanup crew is on a job that turns deadly when they discover that the killer never left the scene of the crime.

Antonio’s story is one of the most inspirational stories I’ve had on the show. Coming from being homeless on the streets to building up a production company, photography business and directing career. He personifies H U S T L E.

He is proof that if you have the will, positive mindset and the hustle you can make anything happen for yourself in life! If you need some motivation or inspiration then take a listen to this interview.

Enjoy my inspirational conversation with Antonio Pantoja.
