Carlos Victor Hunt
Carlos Victor Hunt, of Los Angeles, California, died unexpectedly on August 31st, 2014, at 43 years of age, following a long battle with depression. Carlos was born on July 27th, 1971 to Richard Lewis Hunt and Nina Lazaro Hunt and grew up in Santa Barbara, California with his younger siblings Alexander, Jeremy and Jessica. At Santa Barbara High School, UCSD and UCLA, Carlos met many of his lifelong friends and developed his skills as a filmmaker, writer and editor.
Carlos worked as a production assistant and freelance video editor and was especially proud of his work on special features for DVDs for shows like Lost and movies like The Hunger Games and Pirates of the Caribbean 3. He also edited documentaries including the pilot for the PBS series Food Forward.
Carlos was an environmentalist and could often be found camping with his friends or riding his bike. He believed in living his life in accordance with his beliefs and would often weigh in on whether something was “punk rock” or “not punk rock.” Carlos loved his friends, good music of all kinds, raccoons and his cats. His sense of humor, thoughtfulness and kindness will be dearly missed.
Carlos is survived by his parents Richard and Nina Hunt of Santa Barbara, CA; brother Alexander Hunt of Oakland, CA; brother Jeremy Hunt of Marietta, OH; sister Jessica Dominguez of Santa Barbara, CA; and 5 nieces and nephews. Carlos leaves behind many close friends, especially Paul Wisner and Nathan Wilson.
A celebration of Carlos’ life will be held on Saturday, October 18th at 1:00 p.m. at the Crystal Springs Area of Griffith Park in Los Angeles.
