PATRICK BURKE - DP | EDITOR | PRODUCER
I shoot and edit documentary-style content of all kinds - interviews, promos, live music, reality, lectures, and sporting events. For some clients, I am strictly a DP or Camera Operator (NABET local 53). For others, I am also the Editor, and a Producer. I enjoy both modalities - finding the perfect moments and lighting conditions to tell a story visually, and expanding that judgment and technical expertise though the final stages of post-production.
In May of 2014, I finished work on Season 1 of The Collective Powered by Vevo, a two-hour music documentary show on Nuvo TV. I was the Segment DP, working full time for two months. Before taking that staff position, I also worked eight days as a freelance editor on the show. Here are two of my favorite pieces from the season - Temples and Asher Roth.
I shoot and edit a lot of promos for the Outside Eyes agency - most notably for their client Marucci Sports, which has become the leading bat manufacturer in Major League Baseball, as well as a nationwide training program for the country's top young prospects. Recent highlights included the pieces I shot and edited with Diamondbacks second baseman Aaron Hill, White Sox DH Adam Dunn, and NL MVP Andrew McCutchen.
Another Outside Eyes client I shoot and edit for is Lucky Buddha Beer. I shot and edited this spot to coincide with the World Cup.
This one, which I only edited for Lucky Buddha, is about the construction of the bottle costume.
I have been running cameras for Carson Daly's late-night show on NBC for four years, which adds up to several hundred episodes of network TV experience. Here’s a tiny sample - a spotlight segment with filmmaker Tiffany Shlain.
I was the DP for all the green screen interviews in Jennifer Lopez's reality show about her first world tour. The seven-episode first season of A Step Away aired in the fall of 2013. Here’s the radio page.
Here is a writing sample - from a news video segment I produced, shot, and edited for HealthyCal.org.
My gear: Canon 7D, Canon 70-200mm (f/2.8, IS II), Tamron 17-50mm (f/2.8, IS), Redrock Micro handheld rig, Arri & Chimera lights (1K, 650W), along with support gear, including Macbook Pro, tripods, CF cards, card readers, C-stands, sandbags, bulbs, a wireless Sennheiser lavalier, etc.
Bells of Mindfulness
Sister Dang Nhiem, a nun at Deer Park Monastery in Escondido, CA, practices Zen Buddhism in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh. In this video, she demonstrates the proper way to invite the sound of the meditation bell. She also explains how to cultivate that peacefulness when we hear noises that might otherwise cause stress. I shot, produced, and edited this video for the Deer Park Dharmacast.
Pujols for Marucci
I was Director of Photography and Editor on this Marucci promo, starring Albert Pujols.
Cute Cat Video
This is a fun short about second-guessing the creative process. I was DP on this project. David LaMattina (DGA) was the writer, director, and editor.
