Formerly the Producer & Director of Firestorm Production - a Cape Town based video production company - Quentin successfully directed & produced a wide range of projects: from short films, corporates, documentary and music videos, to web commercials & marketing & awareness campaigns.

Having developed an early passion for film during his Drama studies in Stellenbosch (2002-2004) Quentin embraced a very hands-on approach to Directing & Producing and, as a result, got all his experience working from the ground up - developing, writing, producing, directing, camera operating & editing were all skills that became part of his working arsenal.

After 8 years of directing & producing low to medium budget productions, Quentin decided it was time to kick up a gear and move to Johannesburg into the world of film & television and pursue his original dream of Directing & Producing for Film & Television. His previous 8 years of experience proved invaluable as Quentin quickly shot up in the ranks of local Film & TV crews as a sought after Assistant Director. In just 2 and a half years he successfully scheduled, managed & coordinated over 65 episodes of TV Drama, 3 Feature films, 3 Commercials & Short Films.

In 2013 Quentin finally sat in the Directors chair again and has since successfully completed 2 TV drama series and a feature film.

His combined credits for last few years including; Hartland, Blitzpatrollie, Wolwedans in die Skemer, Getroud Met Rugby Season 4, Drukkersbloed, Castle, Eskom, Standard Bank, Challenger Final Flight, [email protected], Donkerland, Sterlopers, Ballade vir 'n Enkeling & Die Boekklub.



With the invaluable background of being a successful actor himself, Quentin knows exactly what's going on in the mind of an actor. He knows how to communicate to them effectively and efficiently, and how to extract the best performance from them. Most actors who have worked with him refer to him as an 'actors director' and the results speak for themselves.

With a well seasoned background in Assistant Directing Quentin also knows how to run a set just as effectively and efficiently, able to stay calm and collected under pressure and think on his feet when the inevitable unexpected happens.  

His most recent & notable Directing credits:

- 13-part TV Drama: Sterlopers 2013

- Feature Film: Ballade vir 'n Enkeling 2014

- 13-Part TV Drama: Die Boekklub 2015


In 2008, Quentin founded and established Firestorm Production in Cape Town along with Floyed de Vaal (Creative Director), Johan Nel (DOP) & Jacques Theron (Co-Producer). Quentin was the Owner, Producer and Head Director of the company.   And in just 3 short years Quentin successfully Produced Internet Marketing Campaigns, PSA videos, Music Videos, Corporate Videos, Short Films, Training Videos, a Documentary and a very well received Comedy Web-Series. His young company also developed 2 feature length screenplays as well as many other projects in the early development stages.   Quentin is a highly organized, trustworthy, dedicated, and energetic individual capable of working well with other people and is able to perform very well under pressure.
