Pat Bradley

Writer/Director/Producer

Pat Bradley is a screenwriter and script consultant hailing from Queens, New York, which IS the linguistic diversity capital of the world.  Unfortunately, he never took advantage of this, butchering every language possible. As a child, his family moved from town to town and state to state affording Patrick the luxury of being forced to dive into his imagination during cross-country road trips; all while writing and expanding on stories that he, his mother and brother came up with along the way.

After the universe decided to halt his growth at the average height of a woman, Pat gave up on his dreams of being a professional athlete; opting to pursue writing and the wonderful life of a starving artist as a career instead. Quickly realizing that he enjoyed food too much, he got a job; each of which he spent more time handwriting music and stories than working.

Not realizing it at the time, a chance encounter at a Queens deli with hip-hop icon Jam Master Jay in 2000 changed his life forever. During this encounter, Pat talked himself into a studio assistant job, which he immediately turned into songwriting for hire gig. Under the tutelage of Jason Mizell, he quickly learned how to organize his thoughts, words, emotions and concepts into a professional structure. A fast learner and needing to say more in his work, Patrick started his visual writing career with music video treatments for artists that were recording in the studio he frequented.

Through the advice of his then-mentor coupled with having a long-winded style of writing and a hatred for limits, Pat felt it was time to turn from song and video writing to screenplays. Since then, he has been a for-hire script consultant working with everyone from Oscar winning producers to start-up production companies and everyone in between.

 Digging himself into a deep creative rut, he decided it was time to start producing his own work for public consumption. In December of 2015, almost 15 years after Jason Mizell planted the seed by telling him, “You’re too stubborn to write other people's music for a living, start looking to write your own movies," Patrick started a film production company, “Always Write Productions”. They would produce their first short film “Addicts Abuse” in April of 2016 and their first feature film, 2018’s “Into the Valli."

Patrick is an avid sports fan and participant; he currently lives on Long Island, New York with his longtime girlfriend and two dogs.
