SmileQuinton is a filmmaker, visual artist, and storyteller. He received his BFA in Film & Animation from Tufts University together with the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in 2015. Most recently, he had international success as Vice President and founding company member of Trinacria Theatre Company, which had its inaugural season in the summer of 2016. TTC is a non-profit cross cultural intensive residency that brings American artists to Sicily to develop an original piece of theatre based on local myth to herald Sicilian history, heritage, and culture. As a member of Hill Holliday’s Boston-based integrated production team, Quinton served a number of campaigns as a producer, voice actor, storyboard artist, editor, and shooter for a range of award winning commercial work (Dunkin’ Donuts, Chili’s, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, Great Wolf Lodge, Bank of America, and Capella University). Most famously, Quinton created a handful of viral appearances as a disgruntled dinosaur owner as well as over 100 well-known personalities. His voice work ranges from commercials to video games for various clientele including ESPN, Warner Brothers, Jersey Jack Pinball, and Dunkin’ Donuts. His body of work is mostly funny, but is also serious sometimes; equally influenced by Robin Williams as much as Shakespeare. He has developed, directed, and delivered several short films and strives to heighten and fuse his passions for visual and performative storytelling with every endeavor. In his gallery practice, Quinton’s one-man performances are engineered as endurance based tasks, conflating the performed and the authentic in order to exorcise or illuminate the cultural inheritances of masculinity. These pieces are often done in one shot, contain animated elements, and call upon many colorful and often crazed personas. Above all, Quinton is dedicated to making sure that every storytelling element realizes its greatest potential. He currently resides in Massachusetts where he continues his work as an independent filmmaker, performer, and freelance artist. He looks forward to taking the stage as Hamlet this summer at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland.
