Filmmaker, Screenwriter, Commercial Director, Graphic Novelist, New Mediatician (he coined the phrase and is the only person to actually use it)
This year Victor finished his first feature film, BREAKUP AT A WEDDING
, a romantic comedy from Oscilloscope Labs (EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP) which he directed and co-wrote (and begrudgingly co-stars in), produced by Anonymous Content (ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND) and Before The Door Pictures (MARGIN CALL). The film was based around the talents and comedy of his successful online film series, PERIODS. Films
As a Commercial Director and Producer Victor has been part of many productions, documentaries, and Music Videos. His clients range from Absolut Vodka and Malibu Rum to Garofalo Pasta and H&M as well as YSL and Rockstar Games. Victor has also designed and sold numerous online marketing campaigns to clients including the Independent Spirit Awards and BBE.
Victor published his first graphic novel, MR. MURDER IS DEAD
, with Archaia Entertainment and Before The Door. The book was listed on several major Top Ten Lists and was well reviewed.
Aside from his online series PERIODS. Films, Victor also created STUNTED for BBE, and was hired by WGBH to write DOT DIVA PRESENTS: KATE AND ALI, a show designed to get young girls excited about careers in computer programming (slightly challenging), and most recently directed DOG C.E.O for Adult Swim.
In 2004, Victor completed his first short film, CHINESE DREAM
. The film has since played in over 50 international film festivals, was short-listed for the 2005 Academy Awards, and has won Best Short five times, including The San Francisco International Film Festival Golden Gate Award. The film was honored at Los Angeles’ Indie Producers Gala as one of the top three short films of the year. In 2007, CHINESE DREAM was accepted into the archives of Hong Kong University and is now taught as part of their curriculum. CHINESE DREAM can be seen on PBS at all hours of the morning.
In 2005, he was awarded a spot at The Screenwriters Colony in Nantucket for his script THE SWEET WATER.
Victor Quinaz was born and raised in Miami, Florida.
And most of all, he loves a great story.
