A filmmaker from Guatemala with over a decade of experience.
Carlos has been interested in movies since a very young age. As a teenager with no professional crew, Carlos started experimenting with 3D animation and filming anything he could get his hands on.
This landed him his first big job, back in 2005, in the Disney blockbuster The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. At 17 years old, he was the youngest member of the team, and the only one that needed a letter from his parents to be able to work legally.
After Narnia, Carlos got the chance to work with the best in the business on dozens of projects over the next decade.
From feature films, dozens of music videos and commercials for brands like Pepsi and Claritin, to hit shows like HBO’s Silicon Valley, FX Network’s Wilfred and Justified, and ABC’s Scandal and How to get Away with Murder.
Most recently, Carlos has been working on Netflix’s revival of Mystery Science Theater 3K and Wet Hot American Summer, as well as CBS’ Bull and Scorpion.
Carlos has written and directed many music videos, short films and web series. His films have been selected in many film festivals in Central America, Los Angeles and Chicago.
His first short, Abdel was adapted from a Spanish novel. When he received a note from the author, he thought he was in trouble, for making the film without permission. But the message read “Congratulations on this excellent short based on my novel. It’s impressive”
On his spare time, Carlos loves science and exploration. His adventures vary from learning Parkour and Circus to flying water jetpacks, planes, and helicopters. He also commutes regularly on an electric unicycle.
