He then co-produced CHICAGO HEIGHTS, an experimental narrative feature adaptation of Sherwood Anderson's Winesburg, Ohio, that Roger Ebert called "brilliant" and listed as one of the top-ten Best Art Films of 2010.

As an actor, Seth has had principal roles in national commercials and lead and supporting roles in films that played festivals, including Sundance, and were theatrically released.
