“Being on set for 'The Seventh Day' was amazing, getting to know everybody, seeing behind the scenes and everything that goes into it, looking at the environment it was just, it was really hard to put into words,” said Gutierrez.
13-year-old Seth is in 7th grade at Joe Barnhart Academy in Beeville and he has been acting since the age of 7. He said he was speechless when he booked the feature role as "Sherman."
“I was a pretty big jump scare in the film. I was you know the scariest jump scare. And getting all that make up on I had to sit in a chair for two and a half hours. I had three people working on you making me look really scary,” said Gutierrez.
Seth’s agent Lydia Blanco said he’s been working with him since he was 5 years old and its incredible to see the growth and hard work he put in, to land the role.

“Always be positive, you know there are always going to be people that say things about you and think things about you but never let that get to you and always be that positive guy that everybody looks up to,” said Seth. Seth said his next project is a short drama film called, Hermanos.
