About me:

Born in the city of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, in the shadow of Montreal, Samuel Quintal has always had an artist spirit. He loves to create; stories, littles movies, and, at the age of 10, he starts writing stories for his family. Quickly, these little stories became bigger and at the age of 16, he published his first novel. By this time, he discovered an all new passion; movies. It all began with a single click, at the root menu of Lord of the Rings. Instead of selecting the option “Play”, he clicked on “Behind the Scenes”. This simple mistake changed is live. It was at this very moment that he discovered the secret world of movie making, a world way more fascinating than the movie itself. And so, after his high school study at Marcellin-Champagnat, he left everything behind him, once again, to fulfill his ambition; the first step in a cold, far away land; Jonquière. Samuel was ready for this whole new life style; he began to work in a small grocery at 15, the yeay after in a restaurant called the Mannekin Pis as a cook (he cooked like a kid on drug) and, at the age of 17 and 18, as an animator at Camp de Jour. He lost his name to become Charizard these summers. Ah! What a big adventure it was. And so the great adventure of life goes on. He still studying in PostProduction in Madia Arts to became, maybe, Editor for RodeoFX? He aspires to travel the world with a backpack.
