Julian Quentin is a film director and artist currently based in Cologne and Zurich. He is interested in the intersections between art and film. 

On  the one he is exploring ways to bring influences from art into his filmmaking through his interest in installation, photography, performance and video-art. At the same time his own art helps him to make sense of the world he's living in, where he reflects on otherness and pop-culture.

In his commercial and music-video work he explores and negotiates artistic expression with distinctive brand identities in order to compose intriguing experiences that resonate.
