Michael Quill is a professional film director and cinematographer, with a strong background in editing, from Boston, MA. He has over fifteen years’ experience in all aspects of production from conception to completion, creating videos for the film industry, Fortune 500 companies, nonprofits and record labels. Quill holds a BA in Communication Studies and Philosophy from Northeastern University; and his MFA in Film and Media Art from Emerson College.

As a filmmaker, I strive to explore and provide existential insights into the human psyche and condition. The son of a psychology professor who also restored historic homes, I aim to expand upon my father’s dual interests by “building stories on film” that portray a spectrum of characters’ mental dispositions and behaviors as revealed through their motives.
