Aaron is an American filmmaker and photographer. Originally from Texas, Lindquist studied photography and filmmaking at Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara, California. He directs and edits award-winning films while adding to a growing still portfolio.
A recent film project, Pasadena: Crown City, was nominated for an Emmy. He is a Sundance Screenwriters Lab Semifinalist for his feature screenplay The Absence of Color and his documentary short “Downtown Art Walk” was honored with a Special Commendation for Service by the Downtown Los Angeles Art Walk Board. His short film “Made Incorrect” won 2nd Place at the Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights Film Competition, the Gold Medal For Excellence at the Park City Film & Music Festival and won at the New York IFV Festival. It was selected to be featured in the “Anthology of the Foundation SUISA about the History of Swiss Film Music 1920-2012″. His photography has received five Honorable Mentions from the Lucie Foundation's International Photography Awards and he has been published in Renegade Collective Magazine and on the cover of Distant Connections, a short story collection by author David Alan Hall. He lives and works in Los Angeles, where he pursues new frontiers in Visual Storytelling and Augmented Reality.
Lindquist’s aesthetic is influenced in parts by esotericism, eastern philosophy and magical realism. He is an avid student of the Film Noir and Classical Horror motifs in American cinema, as well as German Expressionism. He is inspired by artists and writers as disparate as Chris Marker, Hiroshi Teshigahara, and Ray Bradbury. His work could be called a fusion of documentary, surrealism, and Eckhart Tolle’s The Power of Now.
When he's not making films he writes insightful short stories and novels fueled by everyday life experiences, spoils two cats named Kiki and Lulu and explores the world with his multidisciplinary designer wife, Diane.
