Patrick has a diverse background in film finance, production and post-production.
After graduating from the University of Westminster with a BA in Film Production, Patrick began his career as in house Producer at the Gumball 3000 Rally. During his two-year tenure, Patrick produced two feature films; ‘Love Live Long’, helmed by Academy Award nominated director Mike Figgis and ‘3000 Miles’ featuring skateboarder Tony Hawk and Bam Margera of MTV’s Jackass.
In 2007 Patrick left Gumball to set up the indie production company Red Sparrow, which went on to produce the Australian horror hit ‘Slaughtered’ and the UK thriller ‘Psychosis’ for Lionsgate.
While producing at Red Sparrow, Patrick consulted on feature film post-production, financing and distribution deals including “Tormented” (2009) and “The Infidel” (2010), as well as the theatrical release of the award winning punk-documentary ‘Heavy Load’ (2008).
Together with the Sound Mixer Richard Kondal and the award winning Sound Designer Alex Joseph and Patrick set up the post-production house Creativity Media in the autumn of 2010.
Over the past five years Creativity Media has become a major force in independent film, providing post-production services to over 40 films, most recently Film4’s “Una” starring Roony Mara, “Swallows And Amazons” for BBC Films and “47 Meters Down” for the Weinstein Company.
In 2012 Patrick completed his MBA at the Cass Business School and was voted in to the Time Out Top 100 of “those individuals who have brought the most influence, innovation and inspiration to the British Creative and Media industries in the past 12 months”.
In 2013 Creativity Media launched Creativity Capital, a venture capital backed film fund, which has so far invested in six films, including “Under The Shadow” which will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival this year.
