Jesse started as kid acting in broadcast tv shows back in the 80’s such as “The Ellen Burstyn Show”. Eventually he decided to leave the business and pursue a degree… yes he actually went to college and studied business and engineering. During his time at school, his love for cinema got rekindled, and he came back both as an Actor and Producer on indie films.
One of those films, “Leaving Circadia” (that we both worked on), is making the festival circuit currently and gathering a lot of praise. If you actually want to see it, get some tickets its playing at the SOHO International Film Festival in NY May 2015. Heres a trailer below.
Another film we both worked on was “Other Plans” starring Jamie Kennedy. That film is currently planning a release this year in the states. Here is a trailer for that film.
Carlos has worked with filmmakers like Error Morris (Think) to huge name talent like Tom Hanks (Boatlift Doc). So for those links check below. He has always been on both sides of the creative process – whether right by the camera as a director or even a cinematographer or in post by an editing system. In all that time he has always been telling stories.
I have known Carlos for a long time and he is definitely a driven, strong willed, full of vision director and editor, and I do absolutely look forward to seeing what he can accomplish in the years to come. So Carlos if you’re reading this – make a feature!

Links to Carlos’ Editorial Work:
Carlos started out as a teenager making films with his friends running around Brooklyn with Toy AK’s painted black, stuffed with batteries for weight, shooting Action Sci-Fi Films that he then sold on Fangoria type magazines – all by the time he was 14. This was the 90’s so there was no internet the way we know it today. Editing was also a black art and considered as much back in that day. When Final Cut came out and he was able to move clips in a timeline – his future was set. The magic had become something he could do at home now.
In this podcast we cover his professional career working at big networks and on a large projects. Carlos has worked with people like Tom Hanks and Error Morris and clients such as ABC, Ogilvy, and Showtime. This will be a 2 part Episode. Part 1 covering his past. Part 2 covering his present, editing work and directing work.
Below are just a few links to his work. More will be in Part 2.
More to come in Episode 2.
