PATRICK BURKE - DP
I shoot unscripted content of all kinds - interviews, promos, live music, lectures, and sports - primarily for television. For some clients, I am strictly a DP or Camera Operator (NABET Local 53). For others, I am also the Editor, and occasionally a Producer.
This Résumé represents my whole career, including cinematography, post-production, and producing roles, as well as AC work and newsroom positions.
My DP/Operator Résumé strips away all but my DP and Operator credits.
My shooting reel is below.
As Field Producer for Swipe for Love, a game show pilot for the Oxygen Network (NBC-Universal), I functioned as DP and Editor on nine contestant intro packages, using the Canon C-300 and Adobe Premiere. Here is one of those videos.
I DP a lot of promos for Marucci Sports, the leading bat manufacturer in Major League Baseball. Recent highlights included the pieces I shot and edited with Red Sox slugger David Ortiz, Diamondbacks second baseman Aaron Hill, and former MVP Andrew McCutchen.
The Collective Powered by Vevo was a weekly music series that aired on Nuvo TV. I was the Segment Director of Photography full-time for two months, and was an in-house editor on the show for two additional weeks. This is but one of many segments I shot. It’s about the band known as Temples.
I have been running cameras for Carson Daly's late-night show on NBC for over five years, which adds up to several hundred episodes of network TV experience. Here’s a tiny sample - a spotlight segment with filmmaker and rock-climber Jimmy Chin.
Another client I shoot for is Lucky Buddha Beer. I shot this spot to coincide with the World Cup.
I have shot two feature-length educational documentaries for the C. G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles, about sandplay therapy for trauma & the institute’s senior analysts, as well as two more feature-length lectures videos.
I have shot three annual installments of a 50-hour video training course for pharmacists-in-training, through RxPrep, Inc.
I have produced several live medical lectures for PlatformQ. These talks are given by doctors, streamed live for the benefit of other doctors.
In addition to my decade in the entertainment industry, I also have five additional years of experience managing the newsroom staff at KPFK (90.7-FM Los Angeles), as News Editor, Associate News Producer, and News Director. Samples, including my sit-down interview with a former leader of Pakistan, are on the radio page.
This is a writing sample - from a news video segment I produced, shot, and edited for HealthyCal.org.
For the small percentage of my jobs that appears on it, this is my IMBD page.
In case you need to relax, here is Zen nun Dang Nhiem talking about how to cultivate peace. I shot and edited this video for the Deer Park Dharmacast.
And finally: I don’t shoot a lot of scripted content, but I made an exception for my pal David LaMattina (DGA), who was the writer, director, and editor of this fun short, called Cute Cat Video.
