About Patrick

Writer / Director Patrick Knipe was born and raised on the edges of the wilderness in the valley-nestled town of Vernon, NJ. Growing up surrounded by heavily forested rolling hills, Revolutionary War Era hamlets, and fog-haunted lakes inspired his imagination into the realms of storytelling and filmmaking at an early age.

Patrick has a degree in English Literature from Boston College. He also studied English, American, and Irish Literature at St. Edmund Hall of Oxford University in the UK. Before heading West to film school, Patrick worked as a radiology network departmental coordinator, a medical credientialer, a dog kennel assistant, a landscaper, library assistant, food slop dining hall server, museum grunt, and baseball umpire and soccer referee.

Patrick earned his Masters in Film and TV Production from the USC School of Cinematic Arts in Los Angeles. He was a recipient of the Mary Pickford Foundation Scholarship and a finalist in the Coca-Cola Refreshing Filmmaker's Award competition for the short film THE REPORT. In additional to sound designing and mixing award winning films, Patrick has lectured on film sound mixing in the USC Graduate Film Program and was a 2010 Motion Picture Sound Editors Golden Reel recipient in Hollywood. He co-founded the development and production company Mythmakers and co-wrote and co-produced the family feature film A TOUCH OF MAGIC. His current feature project APOCALYPSE NEW JERSEY is in development with plans to film in Northwest NJ.

Patrick continues to write, produce, sound design, and hone his directing craft while preparing feature projects. His mission is to entertain, delight, and bring stories to the flickering screen that captivate and move the soul.
