About Me

Daryl Christopher Patterson

I’m a New York-based assistant director who works on episodic TV shows and commercials as well as a documentary producer, shooter, and editor.  
Since 1990, I’ve worked on over 200 commercials and music videos. I’ve also directed film shorts that have appeared on PBS, at Lincoln Center, and as an installation at MOMA.
My work as a television documentary producer ranges from half-hour specials on BET, to segment producing for CNN, and includes field producing/shooting on one-hour specials for MSNBC and PBS. As a proud member of the Directors Guild of America, I’m currently splitting my time between work as an assistant director on commercials and developing a documentary that explores child abuse.
