Patrick Barbeau's entrepreneurial journey started at a very young age – when he was 10, he sold chocolate after school for extra pocket money. The third day in, he figured out how to make $50+ per day (which was an insane amount at the time for the age) while still selling the same amount of chocolates.
Fast-forward to 2009, Patrick got involved with Montreal’s local tech community and worked on multiple web startups, including RateMyFights, DestinyMatches, BuildingAStartup, and PitchStartup.
It was in creating BuildingAStartup – a web series that followed Patrick’s progress in building one of his startup websites – where he had his first taste of filming and editing, and he has been hooked ever since.
In 2012, Patrick started a project by the name of The Luchador Life, where he learned to film, direct, act, and edit. Little did he know that it would attract 1,500 followers and garner 350,000 views in just 6 months. He then joined VentureCapTV as Executive Producer, and directed, produced, and edited over 60 episodes in his first year with them. Today, Patrick is still happily with VentureCapTV as their Co-Founder and Production Director.
Also in 2012, Patrick co-founded Studio Du Plateau – a photography and video studio in the heart of downtown Montreal – where he does freelance filming and video production. In addition, he co-founded a production company, BlueLight Films, where he writes, directs, acts, films, and edits projects.
Patrick’s current projects include writing, directing, and acting in short films, working out like crazy to reach 200lbs, and just being awesome in general.
