Visual Effects Artist / Animator
Patrick is the graphics and effects arm of NPG. His forte is special effects through After Effects and image manipulation through Photoshop. He thoroughly enjoys making stuff go boom and blood go splat but he understands effects aren't all about focus and flash
– often Patrick will toil in the background to clean up a film and erase continuity errors, his work only done when his work is unseen. Many times Patrick has partnered with Ivan in post-production to put the finishes touches on an edit, his effects appearing in numerous film and television productions as well as music, performance, and corporate presentations.
As well as VFX, Patrick also explores graphic design and enjoys sketching and drawing. He has designed posters, logos, DVD covers, and various advertising material for a range of clients. In addition to being a founding member of Nexus Production Group, he is also an integral part of the Made In Melbourne Film Festival team, designing the program booklet year in and year out; and formerly Short Cut Monthly Film Night, designing logos and program fliers every month.
Patrick is also an avid comicker and emerging animator. He led the animation team on NPG feature Dace Decklan: Private Eye and is currently training in stop motion animation.
