He’s a true problem solver and an insanely fast worker. He’s created animated pieces for dozens of clients, removed logos from moving basketballs, turned bricks walls into canvases and created 3D cities. Basically, he’s our very own wizard.

Matt Donker

Digital Media Producer/Data Manager

In true Q Media fashion, Matt is a jack of all trades. He captures gorgeous still photography, he is our lead footage manager, he edits powerful videos and just recently, he headed on an American city tour for a corporate client with just a backpack and a camera. While on the road, he shot footage, conducted interviews and scripted in hotel rooms, all as a one-man band.

Mike Fiore

Lead Sound Engineer

Mike is one of our most powerful resources on set. He makes all of our creative sound great, but he’s also an awesome shooter and a terrific mind reader (he has a habit of getting you what you need, before you even know you need it). He puts everyone he works with at ease and brings limitless amounts of energy and positivity to set and in the office. In post production, he is very skilled in audio mixing, sound design, and VO recording.

Sam Gamper

To his credit he has quickly acclimatized to tight deadlines and Friday lunches. He’s fit in perfectly jumping on edits, helping out with shooting, and happily chipping in wherever needed to keep everything running smoothly.

Eleanor Engelman

Q Finance

Eleanor brings decades of financial and arts administrative know how to the office everyday. We couldn’t do what we do if we didn’t have Eleanor keeping us on track and financially sound. Affectionately known as the “Q Mom” she knows how to handle this (mostly) young brood.
