Carlos Mendez

School: California State University, Long Beach Undergraduate

Talent: Director, Cinematographer, Actor, Production Designer

About me: I live to achieve in all that I set my mind on; my goals in life are simply directed towards making my family proud. I was born in Mexico City and raised in Los Angeles since I was 3 years of age; I haven’t gone back to visit my place of birth, not because I don’t want to , but simply because I cant. I take hold of what I know and what I grew up with; the U.S has always been my understanding of home. As I was growing up my passion for education grew stronger, but the more I pushed myself to succeed the more obstacles that camze into play. Education has not come easy for me having to pay for tuition , books, necessities out of my own pocket have been very difficult, but through all these obstacles I have manage to keep on moving forward in life and in my education. Although my status in the U.S isn’t helping me acquire a job, nor internships to ensure higher experience towards my career field as a film \ television director, producer, actor, writer etc; I have manage to acquire the experience through classes at Santa Monica College with great professors; such as, Salvador Carrasco whom is well known for his film “The Other Conquest.” My goals as a scholar are to pursue career fields in cinema and in television. I wish work on many projects; my passion is commercial advertisement, but I thrive for all aspects of television and cinematography. I find that television and cinema have the ability to change and influence people in many ways; that is why I want to work in this field in order to break many stereotypes worldwide, and help bring people from all norms of life to come together as one. I have experience in producing, directing, stage manager, set design, lighting, technical director, some editing (FC), voice acting, acting and many other great concepts of television and cinema. I did many television shows for City TV for a local channel for Santa Monica. Also, did about ten remote shooting for college sports; such as, volleyball, basketball, plus some theater remotes for school plays. Right now I am currently directing a Live Television show, a show that dedicates time to those in need of God and all catholic aspects of religion. This is a brief understanding of my background, and what I am capable of doing. I bring everything to the table when others are depending on me. I plan in overcoming all obstacles that may come in my way in order to achieve all that I strive for. Thank you for your interest in my life.
