Patrick Taylor is a London-based director born and raised in Stoke-on-Trent. 

He has a fondness for highly intimate and emotional stories, often lilting between moments of reality and lucid escapism to place the human experience at the heart of his concepts.

His empathetic and journalistic nature enables him to add deeper layers of sensitivity to his work regardless of format or genre — often documenting stories or ideas through mixed media imagery to relay portrait-like moments that resonate.

Works have featured and screened across NOWNESS, Booooooom TV, British Film Institute, London Short Film Festival, and more.
