Patrick Francis

Patrick Francis recently completed a feature documentary on the maverick film director, Andre deToth. Andre deToth: The Director's Director probes the connection between deToth's wild life (his escape from Nazi-occupied Poland, the devastating collapse of his marriage to Veronica Lake, his resilience after breaking his neck three times) and his extraordinary cinematic achievements (A-pictures, B-pictures, noirs, westerns, war films, and the 3-D classic, House of Wax). A collaborative effort shot over the last years of deToth's life, the film is an intimate portrayal and highly personal exploration of a man who truly lived life on his own terms. Directors Quentin Tarantino, Nicolas Roeg, Richard Donner, and Bertrand Tavernier also pay tribute to this largely underappreciated artist.

For the video-based website, Interviewing Hollywood, Mr. Francis has produced and edited over 30 hours of content, and conducted in-depth, career-focused Q&A's with Crispin Glover, Elliott Gould, Peter Bogdanovich, and many others. He's also written several screenplays for hire (which hopefully will never be produced) as well as film-related journalism for such publications as L.A. Weekly and MovieMaker Magazine, among others.

It should be noted that Mr. Francis is obsessed with the cinema of Werner Herzog, is an L.A. native, and is the proud owner of a barrel of single malt Scotch whiskey, which is aging quietly in the briny sea air of southern Scotland.
