In an era where the film industry undergoes rapid transformation, we at Super Dream Indie recognize these changes not as obstacles but as gateways to unparalleled creative freedom and potential. 

The Paradigm Shift: From Fear to Opportunity

We understand the prevailing apprehension within the industry, but we view this shift not as a threat but as a transition towards individual empowerment. At Super Dream Indie, we believe in embracing change as an opportunity for growth and exploration.


Unlocking Creative Freedom

Gone are the days of being at the mercy of traditional funding models and studio interference. With advancements in technology, indie filmmakers now possess the tools to reclaim autonomy over our craft. We stand as a beacon for ourselves, eager to tell our stories on our terms.

The Power of Intrinsic Value

At the heart of indie filmmaking lies a distinct human perspective that cannot be replicated by machines. Our studio celebrates the authenticity, emotion, and imagination of personal stories.  It's this intrinsic value that sets us apart in a sea of automated content.

Adapting to the New Reality

Rather than shying away from innovation, we embrace it wholeheartedly. A.I. is not a threat but a catalyst for creativity. Through the integration of cutting-edge technologies, filmmakers empower themselves to elevate storytelling to new heights.

Seizing the Opportunity


Our mission at Super Dream Indie is to create fiction and nonfiction stories that serve audiences in the engaging ways they prefer to interact. We understand that today's audience seeks participatory experiences, and we are committed to crafting narratives that resonate deeply and foster meaningful engagement. We urge ourselves to focus on our stories above all else. By honing our craft and embracing emerging mediums, we can captivate audiences in ways previously unimagined.

Joining the Discovery and Innovation Movement

Super Dream Indie is more than just a studio—it's a community united by a shared passion for storytelling. Through accessible training and collaborative initiatives, we foster an environment of growth and mutual support among ourselves.


Embracing the Future - because it's already here

As we look towards the future, we remain steadfast in our commitment to embracing change. The paradigm shift signifies not an end but a new beginning filled with endless possibilities. At Super Dream Indie, we recognize that the future of storytelling is already upon us, and transmedia is at the forefront of this evolution.

So why a transmedia micro studio?

Transmedia storytelling allows us to engage with audiences in dynamic and immersive ways across multiple platforms. In an age where technology has blurred the lines between fiction and reality, transmedia enables us to create rich, interconnected narratives that resonate deeply with viewers.


By embracing transmedia, we expand the boundaries of storytelling, inviting audiences to participate in our narratives in ways never before possible. From interactive web series to augmented reality experiences, transmedia allows us to craft multi-dimensional worlds that captivate and inspire.

Moreover, transmedia offers unparalleled opportunities for audience engagement and interaction. By leveraging the strengths of each platform, we can tailor our content to meet the preferences of diverse audiences, fostering deeper connections and driving greater impact.

In essence, transmedia isn't just the future of storytelling—it's the present. And at Super Dream Indie, we're committed to harnessing its power to create unforgettable experiences that resonate far beyond the screen.

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.

Santiago actively engages in collaborations beyond the realm of film, exploring diverse mediums with fellow visionaries. The ability to collaborate across various creative spaces is not just an opportunity; it's a chance to broaden horizons and expand artistic possibilities.
