Patrick Hagarty was raised by a single mother during the week, and a movie theater on the weekend. At the age of six, he directed faithful basement reenactments of The Empire Strikes Back. In high school he cut together animated rock videos on an edit station fashioned from two VCRs, a tape deck, and every TV in the house. In college, with a Bolex slung over his shoulder, Patrick made dreamy, Lynchian art-films that even he barely understands.
After graduating from Ontario College of Art in Toronto, Patrick made a second home for himself on Toronto film sets. He has worked as an Actor, Editor, Field Producer, Location Scout, French Translator, Lecturer - but predominantly as an Assistant Director.
Patrick graduated with honors from The Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto. He majored in both Fine Art and Film. In his third year Patrick studied painting abroad in Florence, Italy. Patrick is an accomplished painter. He has exhibited and sold work internationally.
In 2004 Patrick completed the short film 'Tracks', his professional directorial debut. In 2005, Patrick founded Torch-Head Productions. The company's first project was Doug Karr's BravoFact short Ten for Grandpa. It premiered at Sundance 2009 and went on to show at over 40 festivals internationally.
Patrick's follow up to Tracks, the dark comedy short 'Dave vs Death' enjoyed a very successful festival and awards run in 2012. Patrick was awarded a second BravoFACT grant in 2012 for the The Golden Ticket.
