Patrick Uden is one of the most influential and sought-after executive producers working in British television today. In particular, he is called on by broadcasters and Indies to hone and tighten the commentary on their key series, one of the hardest skills in filmmaking.
After graduating from the Royal College of Art film school in 1969 Patrick became a Senior Producer in the BBC Science Department during which time he was nominated 3-times for a BAFTA. At Channel 4’s inception he left the BBC to build one the UK’s first independent production companies: Uden Associates Ltd. After 21 pioneering years he closed the company in 2004. Shortly after that he created his current micro-indie: Uden-Media Ltd offering his services to broadcasters and indies on programme structure and commentary-writing while exploring the emergent media of IOS app design through his other company Heuristic-Media Ltd. He won a BAFTA in 2006 for his innovative Channel Four documentary upload site, FourDocs and co-created the UK version of The Apprentice and Series II of The Restaurant. His website www.uden-media.com
