With sights set on becoming a DOP he soon started loading on commercial and feature films, later pulling focus. In 2002 Carlos got an opportunity to DOP a public service announcement for Childline. The Childline announcement was very successful and it won a silver lion at Cannes film festival in 2003. Committed to the visual art of filmmaking and story telling, his enthusiasm for a project is distinctly seen in the quality of work no matter the budget.
