GABRIEL MOREL

Director / Graphic Designer

I am the owner of the Quatic Cloud YouTube & Twitter page, creating art and videos for Death Stranding, Metal Gear games. I’ve always have been fascinated with art and to always be as creative as possible. I would love for my work to inspire others to do great things.

Since I was just a small child about 5 or 6 I knew I was born to create how I would stand out from other kids who drew art at my age.


My dream is  to be a movie director and professional editor for high budget projects. I have evolved my editing skills through mostly self teaching from experimenting with the editing software and video tutorials.

RAY ARZAGA

Video Editor

Ray Arzaga’s curiosity led him into the arts from a young age. He pursued an education in digital media and later found himself working in photography, cinema, and most recently, voice acting. His passion for the art of movement reflects in his creative work and has earned him a reputation in the world of dance and circus. 


He was previously active in the esports and fighting game community, first as a competitor and later as an event photographer, allowing him to partner up with companies such as Red Bull Canada and Japan on several occasions. He has also worked with Apple and Nintendo prior to pushing for a more freelance lifestyle in the creative industry, allowing him to pick up newer skillsets such as UI design.
