Canada director of photography. DOP and professional film maker

My name is Richard Duquette, I’m a Cinematographer (DP), Chief Solutions Officer
and Founder of Films.Solutions.

As a Cinematographer, I am driven by the desire to see the world and meet fascinating people who are doing simple, yet extraordinary things. I aim to capture the light and the subtle moments that take our breath away and present unique stories through cinematic documentaries.

I have been producing original content for television for over a decade. I have also co-created numerous documentaries as well as short and feature films as cinematographer, director and fixer.

As a creator employing other creatives, I have experience running a tight ship and taking great care of my crew. Bringing all my film and TV projects to completion and running a successful business allows me to keep chasing the light that sparks my creative visions.

I bring this energy to my work as a cinematographer and Chief Solutions Office at Films.Solutions, my greatest passion project. is a film fixing company based out of Montreal, Canada. Local and international Directors, Producers and Broadcasters can now benefit from my experience and expertise in managing the technical and logistical challenges they face so they can concentrate on their own creative visions and aspirations.

I’m proud to say that I presented 5 short films at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. Serpents Lullaby, received the “Coup de Coeur” prize. It was an honour to be the Cinematographer on this multiple award winning dramatic short produced by Flirt Films and directed by Patricia Chica.


Richard Duquette is a world class cinematographer and we highly recommend his work. His work and artistry made my production a multiple award winning piece.

Cinematography courtesy of Richard Duquette is somewhat reminiscent of the best of Chanel’s advertising in that it is packed with stylish symbolism and comes across as very classy.

Are you ready to take action and bring your creative vision to life?

Over the years, I’ve noticed that many of the professionals in our industry work in silos. As a result, Directors, Producers and Broadcasters, are often faced with a human resource and logistical nightmare. I’m sure you’ll agree that dealing with several independent contractors with varying levels of expertise and enthusiasm sometimes creates less than ideal work environments on set. Additionally, finding the ideal filming equipment and being responsible for tech support is a recipe for time delays and cost explosions.

The solution is simple.

Every documentary and film production needs an experienced overseer who can offer a turn-key project management solution.

I created Films.Solutions out of a desire to optimize the documentary and filmmaking process. To that end, I’ve assembled a a stable documentary and film crew composed of award winning and experienced specialists who benefit from on-going training on our own Camera & film equipment. Remember, we’re not a production company. We’re a VIP documentary and film solution provider. We handle all the moving parts of your production so you can focus on your creative vision.
