Director


Born in Springs, bred in Benoni, and graduated in Stellenbosch. At the age of 19 while majoring in stage acting at the University of Stellenbosch, Quentin began tinkering with a computer, his Dad’s digital video camera and some primitive editing software. Needless to say, he was immediately hooked and the rest is history.

After graduating with a Drama degree Quentin co-founded Firestorm Production, a small scale Production Company in the Cape. In between acting jobs Quentin had his hands in the writing, Producing, Directing, shooting and editing of a variety of genre’s and formats at the company; short films, doccie’s, corporate videos, PSA’s, showreels and music videos for a wide variety of clients.

After a good innings at Firestorm Quentin left the Cape and the company in pursuit of the Film and Television industry in Johannesburg. Quentin quickly rose in rank as an assistant director and subsequently had his hand in many other drama series and films, essentially paving the way to his directorial debut in the kykNET youth drama series; Sterlopers – Season 1 (2013).

Since then Quentin has successfully directed another four feature films and many more episodes of prime time television – Ballade vir ’n Enkeling (2014), Die Boekklub – Season 1 (2015), Highrollers (2015/16), Vir die Voëls (2017).
