I am a filmmaker living in Austin, TX. The projects that I find the most joy in are the ones that combine my passion for crafting great stories, pushing technological boundaries, and making pretty things move.

My career began when I was 16 years old making short films on a digital camcorder. I studied filmmaking at the University of Texas in Austin where I was drawn to animation, interactive storytelling, and documentary film. After graduating I worked as an editor and motion designer for documentary filmmaker Hector Galán on the PBS film Children of Giant. 

In 2015, I moved to Oakland, California to start a job as a Motion Designer at The Linus Group, a marketing agency with a focus in life sciences and healthcare. Through the four years I was with Linus, I gained tremendous experience in motion design, 3D animation, VR/AR, game development, technical direction, creative direction, and client management. By the end of my time there I had been promoted twice, first to Senior Motion Designer, then to Associate Creative Director.

Since then, I founded Liminal House, a small VFX and production studio where I work with other filmmakers and commercial clients to bring their stories to life. For collaboration inquiries contact me at patrick@liminal.house
