Patrick Smith is creating Animated Short Films

I love making animated shorts.  For years I've been subsidizing this passion with commercial work, it's always been a difficult balancing act. I'm doing this Patreon to fund an ongoing series of independent animated shorts. I've made over 10 independent films since 2001, I like to use metaphor to visually illustrate personal, social, and political themes. In the next few years I plan to tackle topics like prison, prostitution, and gun violence. My most recent short "Pour 585" was just completed, it addresses indoctrination and how it leads to tyranny, one of my first openly political shorts. Pledge now for an exclusive first look! My 2017 short "Pittari" has won over 12 major international film festival awards. Please help me to continue production!
