Rising Stars: Meet Carlos Omar De Leon

Today we’d like to introduce you to Carlos Omar De Leon. Them and their team share their story with us below:

While growing up in Nebraska, Carlos Omar De León gravitated to film and cinema at an early age. While casting his friends and family for his amateur projects, Carlos felt as if his calling resided behind a camera. He attended the University of South Dakota to pursue cinematic arts.

Since then, Carlos has Directed, Produced and Edited a wide range of TV Commercials, Corporate/Promotional Videos, Social Media Campaign Videos and Short Films that have won a variety of awards and views online.

Carlos’s artistic approach and attention to detail makes all of his projects unique and visually interesting.

He’s currently working in advertising/marketing and also developing multiple feature films with a few film production companies.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Not always. Working your way up from the bottom as PA on professional film/TV Commercial sets can have its challenges.

Self doubt and envy does creep into your mind from time to time but you have to adapt and learn to trust yourself and control your thoughts.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I’m a filmmaker in the ad agency world. I direct, produce and edit TV commercials, corporate videos and social media campaigns.

I’m most proud of some of the national name tv commercials that I had the privilege to direct and produce.

What sets me apart from others is my ability to adapt to anything and improvise/change when needed but not lose the overall vision of the project.

The crisis has affected us all in different ways. How has it affected you and any important lessons or epiphanies you can share with us?
Yes, never take your profession for granted. It can all go away at any time.
