Follow along as I shift from freelance videography to running productized video businesses... and write a book about video calls!

👋 Hi! I'm Patrick!

I've been a professional video producer since 2009. I've worked with some amazing clients, racked up millions of video views, and won a handful of awards over the last 10+ years.

But 2019 was tough. Revenue was down for the first time in 4 years. I took a few really bad projects. Years of dragging around equipment became, well... a drag.

Then COVID hit. Events cancelled. Shoots cancelled. Projects cancelled. It sucked.

But it gave me time to think and I realized:

  • I've done nothing but client work for 6 years
  • I'm tired of trading my time for money
  • I'm ready to try new things

The Shift

I started thinking of ways to simplify, template-ize, productize my video services.

On this site I'll share what I'm working on and thinking about. I'd love to be a resource for creative professionals who are in a rut because of COVID, or burnout, or anything else. Get in touch and tell me your story.
