It’s been nearly 3 years in the making.. COMA SUITE, my 10th film will have its world premiere in NYC at the Anthology Film Archives on October 7th.  I am so proud of this film.  It took a lot of time, effort, whiskey, and doctors visits to complete.  It’s a BEAST.  All are welcome, but seating is limited.. if you wish to attend please send me an email. 


Just released a new Party Hospital EP: Tapewarm.  Also been editing COMA SUITE and hope to have an October premiere.  Stay tuned.


Took a much needed break from the drama of COMA SUITE to shoot a little film last week.  Wrote it Saturday, shot it Wednesday, and edited it Thursday.  REALLY like how this came out.  Check it: Off The Cuff.


I’ve been insanely busy these last few months.  Finally started shooting my new film COMA SUITE.  It’s been about 3 years in the making.  It was a script I wasn’t sure I would actually be able to shoot, and now that I am shooting it... I can see why I thought that.  Despite some of the difficulties, it’s been a great journey and this is one of the best group of actors I’ve ever worked with.

10 years ago this month, was the premiere of my first film TEETH DON’T GRIND... which was also an intense and laborious undertaking.  I actually feel like there are many similarities to what I was feeling back then.

This is without a doubt the strangest, darkest and the grittiest film I’ve ever made.  Can’t wait to share it with everyone.


I have some treats ready for all you tricksters.  First is a 45 min. doc from my backpacking trip to BANFF, and the 5 min. highlight reel for those of you suffering from ADHD.  Also, the 2nd Party Hospital EP entitled “Scumbilical” and my 4 year old son wrote, performed, and recorded this entire gem in our kitchen.  The next few months I will be finishing up my script and casting the new film.  I’m coming out swinging really hard on this next one.  It’s going to be craaaaazy.


Been extremely busy with family and work, but I have some fun stuff on the way including a documentary of my backpacking trip to Banff and a brand new Party Hospital album.  I’m also finishing up the script for my new film Coma Suite which I start shooting in January.


My son and I just put together a 7 song LP titled PARTY HOSPITAL.  Check it out here.  Download available soon.


Just finished a new song called Party Hospital.  It’s the title track from a new EP I’ve been working on.  A companion piece of sorts for my film Coma Suite, which I start shooting this fall.


I put all of my SUPER-8 footage from Ireland together in one video


The final 2 episodes of “Cinema Toast Crunch” are available for listen/download.  The “score” episode with Greg Murphy is here for listening and here for downloading.  The final hour-long episode all about me and my films can be downloaded here, or you can listen to it here.

UPDATE: You can now access all of the podcast episodes here.


You can listen to the 2 latest episodes of “Cinema Toast Crunch” here and here, or you can download them here and here.  Live every Tuesday at 7PM on until I get bored with it.


I’m doing a short run of podcasts called “Cinema Toast Crunch” where I will be discussing and playing an eclectic mix of music featured in some of my favorite films.  The shows are 30 min. in length and will be playing Tuesdays from 7-7:30PM.  Check out the first episode here.  You can also download it. 


Ireland was beyond beautiful.  A place I felt a very strong connection to.  The culture, history, people, landscapes, food... were all so amazing.  I could really see myself living there.  You can check out a highlight reel from my documentary: “Quentin goes to Ireland” here


I leave tomorrow for Ireland with my family.  A place I’ve longed to visit.  Documentary to follow of course.  I’m also well on my way with the pre-production for “Coma Suite”, my new thriller.  Been a difficult film to cast, but I’ve recently found some very promising talent.  I’m pushing back principal photography to late November, but I’m insanely excited to start shooting.  I’ve never written anything quite like it.  


It’s been over 6 months since my last update.  Been extremely busy with family and work.  The “God’s Eternal Campground” premiere was AMAZING, one of the best ever.. it was also in a film festival a few months ago, AND (I can’t believe I’m saying this, but) I’m already in pre-production for a new film.  A thriller.  I couldn’t decide if I was ready to start a new film with ZERO budget, but I decided to just do it, keep it raw, real and simple.  I start shooting in mid-October.


My new Civil War film is premiering Jan. 3rd @ 7PM in Manhattan at The Wild Project on 3rd St.  If you need more information please email me.  This is the first time in my filmmaking “career” that I completed 2 films in one year.  A fact that I am extremely proud of.  My most personal film to date: “swell” won BEST FEATURE at the NY LA International Film Festival back in April, and now “God’s Eternal Campground” is ready to roll.  It was quite an undertaking to create a Civil War film with limited funds, but I am SO pleased with the way it turned out.  It really packs a massive wallop.  We all put a LOT of work into this one.


Been a while since I updated my site.  I added a few new pictures today.  I’ve been extremely busy shooting my new Civil War film.  I’m happy to report that most of the principle photography is complete.  I have ONE more scene to shoot in mid-October.  I’ve also been working on the original soundtrack as well, recording and composing with some VERY talented musicians.  It’s all coming together slowly but surely.  I also did a music video recently with a kushy summer vibe.  Saturday I leave for Washington state with my brother and cousins to check out Olympic National Park.  Excited to see the beautiful landscape of the North-West.  Of course I will be documenting the entire thing.  I’m looking forward to a beautiful Fall season (my favorite) and finishing my gritty little Civil War picture.


I start shooting my new Civil War film “God’s Eternal Campground” this Saturday.  I’m filled with many emotions as the date draws closer.  This is the most pre-production I’ve ever done for any of my films.  It’s also the most costly.  It will be quite an adventure, I’m sure of it.  I shoot this weekend in Long Island, then I’m out in Pennsylvania shooting August 2-4.  In the meantime, you can check out the mini-documentary from my trip to Gettysburg right here.


My picture Richie Fishing III was featured in NEWSDAY this week.


In pre-production for my new film   “God’s Eternal Campground”

a Civil War based drama about two cousins fighting in the battle of Gettysburg.  For the first time ever, I’m doing a fundraiser on IndieGoGo to help pay for the costumes and other Civil War era items.  If you’re interested, please visit the site here.  You can find more information on the film, and check out some of the perks I have lined up.


swell” has won BEST FEATURE at the NY LA International Film Festival.  We will be closing out the entire event on May 10th.  I am beyond delighted, and it feels great to have all of my hard work recognized in this way.  For tickets please go here


My new film “swell” had a successful NYC premiere back in February.  The film took over a year to make, and to see such a personal film up there on the big screen being enjoyed by friends and family is a feeling that will resonate with me for the rest of my life.    So far the feedback has been tremendous, and I expect some great things for the future of this film.  I’ve received emails from complete strangers telling me how much the film affected them.  It’s kind of surreal.  Now it’s in consideration at 3 film festivals.  Check back for additional screenings and updates.  In the meantime, check out this video I did for GET INVOLVED!.  It’s a promo for their upcoming album.


I’ve been busy finishing my latest film “swell”.  It was by far the most difficult film for me to make, not only in terms of subject matter, but in sheer aspiration.  February 16th is the premiere date, which is also a year to the day that we had our first shoot.  3:30 at the Film Anthology Archives is the time and date.  If you would like to attend, please send me an email.


Shot/edited this piece for Russian fashion designer VASSA.


Rounding off what I consider my “music video trilogy” is this anti-government video for Washington Heights artist The Bear King.  Had a lot of fun with this one.  It’s called N.W.O..

This day last year I released my last film ‘003064.XZ’, this year.. I’m about half-way done shooting my new film.  It’s been a difficult journey to say the least, but well worth every step.  Still on track for an October release if the chaos gods allows it. 


Q is back with a brand new jam.  ONE BABY BAND! (part 2)

try and stop me.


Just finished this new song.  ALSO, THE WARM WAR is in consideration for the NY LA International Film Festival.

OH!  one last thing, I just finished the 2nd installment of my annual LUVBVG mix! 


THE WARM WAR premiere was a HUGE success.  It was well received by cast members and critics alike.  You can check out how the whole thing went down in this video.


It’s been 4 months in the making, and now the time is here.

THE WARM WAR will have it’s N.Y.C. premiere this Saturday at the Anthology Film Archive theatre on 2nd Ave.  This film has taken me to strange new places, left me scarred, and has been a dizzying mix of highs and lows, but it is without a doubt my strongest and most bad-ass work to date.  Making a movie like this is always an uphill battle, usually with little or no rewards... but the experience of creating something completely unique out of NOTHING, is just as satisfying to me as climbing to the top of a colossal mountain, maybe better... and the opportunity to work with such talented, like-minded people and create a distinctive piece of art, makes me realize that life is more beautiful than we want to believe it is.

Kim, Creep, Hern, Ev, Brie, J, Richie, Mom, Dad.. THANK YOU.


THE  WARM WAR premiere is set for mid-July.

RF, JM, BS, JT...  R.I.P.


Production for THE WARM WAR is in full swing, I’ve been shooting for the past 3 weeks with the talented & dedicated MJS.  It’s turning out sooo sweet.  A LOT more planning, shooting, and drinking to go!!

Headed across the great blue Pacific to New Zealand with fam & buds, plus several cameras in tow.  Documentary to follow... activities include backpacking, surfing, and letting the hair get greasy.  Upon my (hopeful) return.. THE WARM WAR (my new short-film) will break ground...
