Company: Picture North

Ryan Patrick is a director bent on telling quirky stories that feature unique personalities. Raised in Florida, there were only two professions that he was ever interested in as child: film director or bus driver at Disney World. While his parents have still yet to weigh in on his decision to pursue the former, it’s become clear that Ryan’s directorial instincts have gravitated toward blending comedy and rhythm alongside carefully crafted art direction.


Originally starting out in the music world, Ryan has directed videos for artists such as Cut Copy, 2 Chainz, Wiz Khalifa, B.o.B., Miike Snow, Tesla Boy, and The Weeknd. One of his music videos for Tesla Boy, “Nothing”, was awarded Music Video of the Year by Jagermeister. Yes, you read that correctly. Jagermeister.

A two-time nominee of the Cannes YDA, Ryan’s work has screened on Vimeo Staff Picks, at SXSW, and at numerous other festivals. His recent short film, Gremlins: Recall, was a viral reboot of the 80’s classic horror comedy Gremlins.

When not on set, Ryan is usually out distance running and/or having a hazy IPA – though rarely at the same time. After spending his college days at Northwestern in Chicago, Ryan has called Los Angeles home for over a decade.
