Learning something new, being engaged and having creative input is a good recipe for a successful production.

Patrick believes that as a DP/Cameraman, “in addition to having the skills and the right tools, it’s key to listen, observe and engage in order to truly understand the tell the story in our visual format.” In the years leading up to the opening of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture on the National Mall in September 2016, Patrick and his production crew produced a number of short films featuring some of the iconic artifacts now housed in the Smithsonian’s enormously popular museum.
