Originally from Southeast Texas, Eric Patrick began working in Studio Arts in the late 1980s. Art practice still informs his filmmaking. He combines animation, live action, photographic effects, sound collage and performance to create experimental narratives. He has been the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, and his work has won numerous awards both domestically and internationally, including awards at The Black Maria Film Festival, The Humboldt International Film Festival, Semana de Cine Experimental de Madrid, South by Southwest Film Festival, The Ann Arbor Film Festival, and Festival de Cinema Independent de Barcelona. His films have screened extensively at festivals, museums, and on television throughout Europe, Australia, Asia and the Americas, including screenings at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, and The Rotterdam Film Festival. He was an animator for the Peabody award winning and Emmy nominated Nickelodeon program Blues Clues, and has written several articles about independent animation. He is currently an Associate Professor at Northwestern University.
