About me

Hi there,

Thank you for visiting my website!

I'm Barbara Marques, a Brazilian Actress, and Filmmaker based in LA.
I'm very creative and passionate about Cinema, Film, Acting, and Movies. 
Since 2019 I've been playing, learning, and working primarily as a director.
Eduardo Coutinho inspired and has guided my filmmaking life (my college essay was about him). I love documentaries; that is my thing.
As an actress and director, when I'm working with actors, my favorite part is always the rehearsal, when we can explore the character and discover their goals, backgrounds, and guts.
We must be seen and constantly introduce ourselves, our goals, and our talents no matter what we do.
I've worked and got a chance to direct Marcelia Cartaxo, Elisa Lucinda, and Furly Mac. I love what I do. 

But like everyone in LA, I need to make a living and make good connections. So I also work as PA and AD. 

I recently just finished my internship at SAS Movie Studios, where I could have an experience as a Casting Director.
Since 2021 I've been working as PA for the DEl Records Studios.
I'm shooting my fifth movie Belong, a documentary about the Black community.
