Hi, I'm Patrick Burke.
This is my résumé. Below is my shooting reel, meaning I was DP or Camera Operator on everything therein. Read on to see which projects I also produced and edited.
I'm a Producer, a DP, and an Editor, often at the same time. I have shot hundreds of episodes worth of interviews, concerts, and documentary segments for network broadcast, just with NBC-Universal's Last Call with Carson Daly alone. In recent months, I have been a Producer/DP on Samsung rollout events across the country, a DP on Jennifer Lopez's latest reality show, an Editor for Toshiba, a Camera Operator shooting live audience cutaways for the Hallmark Channel, a DP/Editor for Marucci Sports, and Producer/DP/Editor for RxPrep (www.rxprep.com) and the C. G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles. (The story continues, with an international twist, here.
This link has still more details from my career.
My gear, available for rent: Canon DSLR 7D, Canon 70-200mm lens (f/2.8, IS II), Redrock Micro rig, Arri & Chimera lights (1K, 650W), along with support gear, including Macbook Pro, tripods, CF cards, card readers, C-stands, sandbags, bulbs, wireless Sennheiser lavalier, etc.
Honor the Game
This is an ad that I recently edited for Marucci. As the name suggests, this one is more philosophical than product-based.
Here is another Marucci ad I edited. This one features Phillies second baseman Chase Utley, and his glove. Marucci makes more than just bats, people!
Pujols for Marucci
I was Director of Photography and Editor on this ad for Marucci, starring Albert Pujols.
Bautista for Marucci
I edited this for Marucci as well. It stars Toronto's Jose Bautista.
Bells of Mindfulness
Sister Dang Nhiem is a nun at Deer Park Monastery in Escondido, CA. She practices Zen Buddhism in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh. Sister D shows us the proper way to invite the sound of the bell. She also teaches us 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.
Toshiba Medical Industrial
This is a 7-minute industrial that I shot and edited for Toshiba Medical. It's a conference preview in a talk-show format.
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.
Last Call Spotlight: Tiffany Shlain
Every episode of our late-night show has a mini-documentary between the interview segment and the musical guest. Here is one of many that I've shot with DGA Director Joe LaMattina.
I've produced, shot, and edited freelance documentaries, or news features, for Daniel Weintraub's California policy website, HealthyCal.org. This is how Weintraub introduced the first one:
"Growing up in Boyle Heights, Fernando Almanzar dabbled in tagging and considered joining a crew or a gang before turning away from that lifestyle. Today he is an intern at the Boyle Heights Technology Youth Center, where he is learning the skill of video production. He is a success story for the Los Angeles Youth Opportunity Movement, which offers grant-funded academic programs and job training for residents age 14 to 21 who meet poverty guidelines and are authorized to work. Almanzar is also the co-vice chair of the Opportunity Movement’s Boyle Heights Youth Council. HealthyCal contributor Patrick Burke offers this video profile."
