When a very small, unassuming car pulls up, you don’t expect a 6’5″ bald guy to climb out of it. That’s Pat Lee – you can expect the unexpected. He can work magic in a small tiny office. Clients are shocked when they see what the final product looks like especially without a Hollywood studio.
Pat started his career as an intern at KPRC-TV. It wasn’t long before he was a full-time employee. He worked in just about every department at Channel 2 during his 13 years there including Sports, News, Production, Promotions and Sales. He was the primary photographer and editor for the 30-minute program called “What’s the Buzz with Roseann Rogers.” Plus, he was a segment and post-production producer for “Gimme the Mike!”, and he’s shot and produced for national non-profit telecasts including the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
Pat also shot and produced TV commercials for scores of local area businesses. In fact, he’s twice won best local commercial by the Houston Press.
In addition to his photography skills, Pat’s post-production video work is unmatched. He can make the impossible, possible. He has removed cricket sounds from an outdoor shoot, removed logos from industry equipment and made thousands of people shine.
After 13 years in local news, Pat headed to atgnat, a local Houston video production company. Here he was the company’s only video photographer, still photographer, web designer and editor. Pat doesn’t beat around the bush; he tells you how it is, what we can do and how we can make it work. Pat adapts his production skills to the environment — whether he’s shooting a feature segment or producing a quick commercial spot.
When he’s not working the camera or the editing machine, Pat enjoys spending time with his two boys and his wife, his high school sweetheart. You can catch him singing karaoke, playing Rock Band or fixing up his 1974 Corvette Stingray. He’s also a movie and documentary fan. When he watches a movie, he’s looking for camera angles, special effect errors and learning “just how they did it” — all things most movie goers never notice.
