Director, Producer, Writer
A graduate of the Colorado Film School with degrees in Writing/Directing and Writing/Producing, Damien Patrik is the Writer/Director/Producer of a number of short films including “In The Blink”, “Cheese!,” “StalkerZ,” “Directors on Directing” and “First and Last,” which have collectively been official selections in over 220 film festivals, including prestigious festivals like Taos ShortZ, Phoenix, Sedona, Orlando, Tallgrass and Williamstown, and won dozens of audience choice and judges’ choice awards.
Additionally Patrik won the distinguished Ken Hendricks Award For Excellence in 2016 from the Beloit International Film Festival. The award was given for the first time to an individual (Damien Patrik) instead of a film. It was given for Patriks’ body of work and passion for filmmaking.
Mr. Patrik has spoken on independent film panels at many festivals, worked as an actor, a casting director, and in production on network television specials with stars like Bette Midler (The Earth Day Special), and Milton Berle (Bugs Bunny’s 50th Anniversary Special). He taught and produced voiceover workshops in Hollywood in collaboration with Dolores Diehl’s “Voiceover Connection”.
He is currently working on two feature screenplays, while his recent short films, “Directors on Directing”, “In The Blink”, “StalkerZ”, and “High Signs”, continue their travels on the festival circuit.
