Carlos Barbosa      

Production Designer of "Aquarius"

Born in Bogota, Colombia and trained as an architect with a Masters degree from Tulane University, Carlos Barbosa's professional career started in New Orleans at the firm of Perez Associates where he was hired as a staff designer planning the 1984 Louisiana World's Exposition. New Orleans became Carlos' second home and his first in the USA. It was in New Orleans where his love for Blues, Jazz, and Zydeco was ignited, as well as his passion for the local cuisine, native architecture and deep multicultural history. He was later recruited by architect Charles Moore's Los Angeles firm of MRY. This brought him to Los Angeles where the world of designing for the silver screen became a real possibility and an alternative career. Helping a friend by designing his student film at USC was Carlos' first introduction into the world of entertainment but the real chance came when he was given the opportunity to work on Ultraviolet, a low budget Roger Corman film project, his first credit as a production designer and his hands on education into film making.

Today his credits as a production designer include "Magic City," season eight and the pilot of "24" for which he was nominated for an Emmy, the pilot for "Terra Nova," "Lost," "CSI-Miami," "Studio 60," "Action," "Coach Carter," "The Invisible" and "Hurricane Season" among many others. Most recently, he has served as the Production Designer for NBC's series, "Aquarius."

In addition to filmmaking Carlos continues to practice as an architect and has completed projects in California and Louisiana.
