From Micro Budget to Million Dollar Budget Films with Christian Sesma

Many indie filmmakers dream of going from micro budget to million dollar budget films. Well my friends on this weeks episode I’ve got a guy who not only did exactly that but also had fun doing it. Christian Sesma is a indie film writer/director based in Palm Spring, CA. I’ve know Christian for probably over 10 years now and I’ve watched him grow from a small $15,000 horror film (On Bloody Sundayto his latest action blood fest Vigilante Diaries starring Paul Sloan, Michael Madsen, Michael Jai White, Jason Mewes and UFC legend Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson.

Take a look at the trailer below.

CHRISTIAN SESMA, Vigilante Diaries, On Bloody Sunday, Shoot the Hero, filmmaking,
Vigilante Diaries will hit select theaters and be available on iTunes on June 24, 2016.

Synopsis:
Jason Mewes of CLERKS and JAY AND SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK stars as an in-your-face filmmaker known for his web videos of an urban avenger known only as ‘The Vigilante’ (Paul Sloan). But when The Vigilante terminates a creep with deep connections, it’ll trigger a live-feed bloodbath between the Armenian mob, Mexican cartels, a rogue team of Special Forces commandos, and an international black ops conspiracy that’s about to make things very personal. UFC legend Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson, Michael Jai White (BLACK DYNAMITE), Jaqueline Lord (MERCENARY FOR JUSTICE), WWE star Sal ‘Chavo’ Guerrero, Jr., James Russo (DJANGO UNCHAINED) and Michael Madsen (THE HATEFUL EIGHT) co-star in this explosive throwback packed with badass swagger, hardcore firepower and bone-crunching action.

I wanted to pick his brain and share his unique journey with the IFH Tribe. Enjoy this one, it’s a blast!
