MEET THE Q CREW

“Q” Qadree Holmes

Executive Producer / Founder

Quriosity’s mission is to provide an integrated creative solution for clients and agencies looking to create advertising and entertainment content.

Qadree has successfully rose from intern to production assistant to producer and finally to the Founder/Executive Producer of Quriosity.  While line producing, he recognized a significant shift in the market-clients and agencies were seeking integrated creative talent options to represent the different social channels now available. Conversely, they did not want to sacrifice quality or production value because budgets were shrinking.

Our talent roster covers the genres of comedy, slice of life, visual storytelling, food, product, children and families.  We represent directors, photographers, and editors both domestically and internationally.  The real life experiences of each individual is authentic and personal to who they are. We believe this represents the true fabric of America. We specialize in bridging those storytelling divides and finding the common experiences that tell authentic stories through visual media.

Qadree is currently a board member for Free Spirit Media, AICP Midwest, and the Midwest Independent Film Festival.  In addition, he is the receipt of the 2017 Global Mixx Game Changer Award.
Quriosity’s advertising work has been featured in Ad Week, ShootOnline,Time Magazine, The Washington Post, Huffington Post, ReelChicago.com, and Screen Magazine.   Quriosity has had a successful run on the entertainment side handling the post production on the following projects:
