Barria (b.1973 Camilo Barria Royer) is an Immigrant American filmmaker, writer, producer, story analyst, photographer, and designer of Latino origins from Los Angeles, California. From a humble background and experiencing displacement as the child of political exiles in the turbulent '70s, he found a sense of belonging and courage in stories and images that dignify human existence.

He majored in Sociology and attended the prestigious UCLA's School of Theater, Film, and Television Professional Producing Program. His latest projects vary from film to music production and graphic art. Between 2018 and 2019, he produced/directed Postcards From Last Summer, a 16mm short essay film made in collaboration with Berlin-based Austrian film composer Ella Zwietnig. In 2020 he worked on a series of experimental shorts to accompany the production and release of Música para Ver las Nubes, an instrumental album co-produced in tandem with Venezuelan composer Juan Ernesto Velásquez. In 2021 he joined Ella Zwietnig and Turkish musician Ekin Fil for
 the experimental essay film Far Within Reach and co-produced the album Escaparate with guitarist Pedro El Colita.

In 2019 he established United Büro Studio, a boutique design practice to craft specialized artwork for entertainment. He is currently completing his Film Direction and Story Development candidacies at the UCLA Extension Entertainment Studies department.
