I know it’s confusing, but my name is Adam Patch and I’m a director, not a doctor. You’re thinking of Patch Adams. I direct ads and films and have yet to perform so much as a minimally invasive surgery…
It was in Tucson, AZ that I took a video class at my High School and immediately knew my calling. That same year my hair started to gray. I like to think it was a coincidence. After film school in SF, I paid the bills as a motion graphics artist and editor — freelancing for some of the top agencies in the Bay Area. It was there that I got a taste of advertising and stepped out of the edit suite and into the director’s chair. My technical background helped me quickly build a portfolio of work that people have described as being witty, design-driven, and multifaceted. My mom describes it as “fun”. Now, with more than 15 years of experience, I have a full-head of gray hair under my beanie and hundreds of commercials under my belt.
If you need something directed, I would love to hear from you. If you need a doctor, please hang up and dial 9-1-1.
