Founder and Executive Director
"The HOLLA documentary crafted by Peripheral Vision PDX has been the single greatest spark in the HOLLA fire. It tells our story through the eyes and voices of our community in a way that is both raw and beautiful. It is a film that honors, educates, and inspires. It makes you grieve, laugh, and stand up out of your seat to be a part of change. The documentary created a platform that increased awareness and provided avenues for engagement, education and empowerment. Since the release of the film, HOLLA has grown from 4 mentors at 2 schools to 50 mentors at over 20 schools! It has paved the way for us to empower more children in our community as it continues to inspire a new generation of mentors and advocates."

"I really enjoyed working with Sebastian and Peripheral Vision. His energy is infectious, which helped to make the process easy and pain-free. He has a unique ability to really listen, to hear what your heart is saying and turn that into art. He cares about getting it right and that makes all the difference.”

“Sebastian has helped bring our international stories to life! With his creative storytelling ideas, AMAZING videography skills, and willingness to travel to off-road in less-than ideal conditions, he has created videos that we love to share. Throughout the process, Sebastian was open to feedback and responsive to our questions and ideas. We look forward to working with him again and again.
“Making a video with Sebastian is redemptive in every way. Certainly, for the viewer, opinions are changed and the end result is inspiration. Sebastian is committed to his craft, and what's most important to him is telling honest stories about people. It it not an accident that the result of the way he loves those he works with is exceptional film work that jumps off the screen.”
“Peripheral Vision did a great job for us – they were professional, creative, timely and paid attention to detail. I’ve found them to be easy to work with and quite responsive to ideas and fine-tuning. Sebastian took the time to understand what I was hoping to communicate and project to my audience, and delivered a great final product. I’ve encouraged our in-house marketing team to make their work for me fit with what Peripheral Vision created for my program. Overall, I was very pleased with the film and have gone back to them for further work. Count me as a satisfied customer.”
