Quentin Lareau is a Chicagoland native and attended Columbia College Chicago. During his time at Columbia he was Director of Photography for two very ambitious films: "Mariana," a 35mm short, and "La Llorona," a Super 16mm short that premiered at the Downtown Los Angeles Film Festival.
When he moved to Los Angeles, he got his feet wet shooting interviews for ABC/Disney. Meanwhile, he shot a VFX heavy 35-min HD short entitled "The Midnight Eye." It is currently in post-production and hopes to enter the festival market later this year.
He recently completed production on the feature "Real Heroes," which plans to premier at ComiCon next summer. Two other films he has shot featuring SAG casts, multiple locations, and stage sets are "Needs," which was set and shot here in Los Angeles; and "Farmer: An American Tragedy" was done entirely on location in the middle of Iowa.
His other credits include multiple commercials, including "Rope Yoga LA" and competitions for Natural Light "Nattyisms" and Old Spice.
He also enjoys working for good causes, shooting Behind the Scenes for large non-profits like Stand Up To Cancer, and doing promos for smaller family operations like Cherished Hands.
When he's not busy making movie magic, he enjoys making music, cooking for his wife, collecting chess sets, and homebrewing beer.
