Stept Studios welcomes engaging and dynamic director Pat Hall to their roster for exclusive US commercial representation.
Pat Hall embodies the vitality of his native Santa Barbara, expressing the energy of a generation through his films. A story-teller at heart, Pat’s consistent goal as a director is to create well-rounded stories no matter what the length or subject of the piece, giving viewers a full cinematic experience. Over the years, he has fine-tuned his ability to capture the world in strategic and untraditional ways complemented by a strong background in post-production and sound design, as well as years of on-set experience working in any and every capacity. Encouraging collaboration from everyone involved with each project, Pat brings a unique aspect to his creative approach. Pat’s extensive production skills underpin his success as a storyteller, with fresh and exacting executions.
A self-taught director and editor, Pat’s passion for film began with the skating videos he began making at the age of eleven. At thirteen, Pat enrolled in college courses for advanced editing and within the next year had earned his first accolade from the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. Pat is a three-time Santa Barbara International Film Festival Finalist, two times winner earning his first accolades at the age of 15. Since then, he has directed and edited content for The Wall Street Journal, Under Armour, Facebook, MeUndies, Foot Locker, Adidas, Nike, Porsche, and Asics, among others. Often highlighting partnerships with celebrity talent within his branded content, Pat’s innate capacity to elicit ease and confidence in his subjects, paired with a lively camera and evocative use of lighting, ensures his finished projects are on point and relevant.
Pat most recently completed a full social campaign launch for JuneShine’s new line, JuneShine 100, which aired earlier this week. “Pat listened to our needs, presented a unique and compelling vision, and nailed the execution. We couldn't be happier with our experience working with Pat x Stept Studios.” says Forrest Dein CMO.
Pat added: “One of the things I love about this industry is that there’s no perfect formula or right way to do something. Each project poses new challenges that necessitate new adaptations - which in return provides a never-ending educational aspect to the job. I learn something new in each project.” “Pat’s boundless curiosity is infectious - he’s a perfect fit within the culture of Stept,” says Nick Martini, founder and executive producer at Stept. “His knowledge of VFX allows him to think outside the box, and whenever Pat gets his hands on a project he makes sure it stands out and feels special."Stept Studios, 4 months ago
