PATRICK LONGSTRETH | Visual Effects Supervisor


Hi. I’m currently the Visual Effects Supervisor for Adam Ruins Everything on truTV. I live in Los Angeles with my wife and two dogs. I enjoy art, history, film, virtual reality, frisbee, golf, and frisbee golf. Hellyfish is a short horror-comedy I wrote and directed about mutant killer jellyfish. It was accepted to the Raindance film festival and won several awards.

My career began as an editor on corporate videos in St. Louis, MO in 2002. A few years later I moved to Washington, DC to work on political commercials and then as a motion graphics artist for Meet the Press. I had a wonderful time working for the longest running show on television in the exciting age of Tim Russert and the 2008 election. In 2011, I received a masters degree in Visual Effects from the Savannah College of Art and Design and since then I've worked primarily as a visual effects artist.
