QUENTIN KROG

 

Born in Springs, bred in Benoni, and graduated in Stellenbosch. At the age of 19, whilst 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 was history.

After graduating, 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, show reels and music videos for a wide variety of clients.

After a good innings at Firestorm, Quentin left Cape Town 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 four more 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), Thys & Trix (2018). Due for release later in 2019 will be his fourth feature film - Ander Mens.

Quentin Krog is gebore in Springs, het grootgeword in Benoni, en toe graad gevang in Stellenbosch. Op die ouderdom van 19, het Quentin tydens sy studies begin speel met ‘n rekenaar, sy pa se digitale videokamera en baie eenvoudige redigering-sagteware. 

Na afloop van sy studies word Quentin die mede-stigter van Firestorm Production, ‘n kleinskaalse produksiemaatskappy in Kaapstad. Tussen speelgeleenthede het Quentin sy vernuf geslyp in die skryf, vervaardiging, regie, en redigering van ‘n verskeidenheid film-formate.

Na ‘n geruime tyd by Firestorm, verlaat Quentin die Kaap met die oog op die Film- en televisiebedryf in Johannesburg. Quentin het vinnig as Assistent-regisseur naam gemaak en was deel van verskeie drama-reekse en films, wat toe vir hom deure oopmaak om uiteindelik sy debuut te maak as regisseur op die kykNET dramareeks, Sterlopers - Seisoen 1 (2013).

Sedertdien het Quentin die regie van vier vollengte films behartig asook vele episodes van drama-reekse, ondermeer Ballade vir ’n Enkeling (2014), Die Boekklub – Seisoen 1 (2015), Highrollers (2015/16), Vir die Voëls (2017), Thys & Trix (2018). Sy vierde vollengte film, Ander Mens, word in 2019 vrygestel.
