His latest project, a musical horror-comedy called Powertool Cheerleaders vs the Boyband of the Screeching Dead, was the most popular Kickstarter film project in the world (out of over 74,000 live film projects at the time) at several points in October 2020. The film has just completed principal photography and will be released internationally in 2022.
In addition to his credited works, Pat also works as an uncredited script doctor and freelance copywriter.
