Bruce S. Quarto, Founder of BSQ Productions, Inc. grew up in Southern California in a small foothill community about 30 miles east of Los Angeles, California. He helped start and run a multimillion dollar company named LERETA Corp. In 1986 the company had 16 employees and eventually grew to over 850 by late 2003. At LERETA, he started out as a mainframe systems programmer, specializing in database architecture. Later he became an IT Manager and also sat on the Board of Directors until the company was finally sold to a large billion dollar corporation in early October, 2003.
After a few years of retirement, Mr. Quarto decided he was "too young to grow old" so he decided to use his business and financial success to get back in the game. In 2007-2008 he co-produced a short film called "Intervention" by Aundre Johnson. Actors include Peter Jason, Teri Markel, & Tony Moras. The film was applauded at the Short Film Corner in Cannes. In 2010 he produced another short film called "The Third Rule". It stars Sir Anthony Hopkins, Jason Biggs, Joel David Moore and Josh Hutcherson. This film was show cased at Tribeca and also selected as one of the top 5 short films in the International Short Film Festival in Rome called "Corti and Cigarettes". The Third Rule is currently available for download on iTunes.
In mid 2011 Mr. Quarto teamed up with good friends Stuart Smith, guitarist and Joe Retta, vocalist extraordinaire to produce the new Heaven & Earth album. This musical project, titled "Dig" has been looked upon as one of the most promising rock albums in more than a decade. David Paich, Howard Leese and Richie Sambora have either added guitar pieces, vocals, and/or string arrangements to a few of the songs. In summer 2012, Mr. Quarto started his own record label called Quarto Valley Records, Inc. to handle the new album. It was later released in April 2013. The band won an award for Best Rock song at the HMMA in late November 2014. In summer 2014, the band departed for their first European tour including the Montreux Jazz Festival.

In spring 2014, BSQ Productions joined forces with Writer/Director Casey Tebo to produce a full length movie called Happy Birthday!. The film features a slew of great actors and even includes Steven Tyler of Aerosmith & American Idol fame who plays a Native American shaman named Kasape Suka. The film is currently in post-production and is set for completion by summer 2015. More information can be found on the Partners & Projects page of this website.
