Patrick graduated cum laude (wicked smaht!) from the University of Cincinnati’s School of Design, Art, Architecture and Planning (DAAP) with a BFA. While his thesis at DAAP focused on painting and installation art – his interest and studies in cinematography were only starting to grow. After college this love for “moving pictures” only grew and he founded Contrast Productions – a video production start-up with a focus on music video and live musical performance.
As he honed his skills, he remained active in the arts community by spearheading SYMBIOTIC, an event-based pop-up collaborative with an intent to gather artists, musicians, dancers and other like-minded individuals in non-traditional “gallery” spaces.
In 2012, he was approached by a friend to create a music video for a band’s new single. The band was Walk the Moon and the song was Anna Sun. Patrick concepted, produced, directed and edited the mostly-single-take video which received over 25 million views and helped catapult the band into the national spotlight.
Based on this success, Meier became a sought-after Director/DP and landed at Eric Mower & Associates where he was hired to head their video department. After a 3-year run at Mower, Patrick started Yellowhaus Studio with Jeff Bucalo.
Patrick currently lives in Old Milford, OH with his wife, two children and some asshole cats. You’ll find him most evenings climbing walls and/or drinking bourbon.
