Camila began her directing career with an award-winning short documentary entitled, Chains – a look at the history of hip-hop from its Jamaican roots to the streets of the Bronx. Born and raised in Brazil, Camila is now based in Los Angeles, where she worked extensively in TV commercial production for clients such as Gatorade, Coca-Cola, and McDonald’s with directors like Floria Sigismondi and Mark Romanek. Martins has been a part of prestigious filmmaking programs such as Film Independent’s Project: Involve, Tribeca Film Institute’s Tribeca All Access, and Tribeca All Access On Track with her documentary project, Fallen (previously titled, The Row).
Always driven by her passion for story telling, Camila is currently dedicating herself to various projects which include a 4-part series for NPR’s From The Top hosted by Kevin Olusola from the band Pentatonix and projects for non-profit organizations like the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Camila made her narrative debut in 2017 with an 8-episode series titled, Or Die Trying, about four ambitious women’s attempt to achieve their own definition of success, while dealing with the struggles of being a millennial in Hollywood. The series went on to be selected for and win multiple film festivals.
Merging her passion for story telling with her documentary background, Camila’s branded work includes pieces for clients like Froot Loops and Red Bull.
