About me

Carlota is a filmmaker from Cascais, Portugal, with a passion for music and traveling. Upon finishing her degree in Multimedia Art at the Faculty of Fine-Arts of Lisbon, which included a year abroad at Southampton Solent University in the UK, she moved on to work for Show Off Films in Lisbon. With a fresh mind, Carlota has not only directed but also produced, shot and edited most of her films. The first web and television commercial she directed at Show Off for Johnson & Johnson Portugal, was recognised at “Prémios Lusos” and won both a Silver and a Bronze award. ​ Since then, Carlota has worked with several different clients, making treatments, promotional videos and short documentaries in Lisbon, London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Bali and Hawaii. She is now aiming to work in features and television dramas and documentaries.
