Writer / Director

Torch-Head Productions’ focus is producing the work of writer/director Patrick Hagarty.

Hagarty is a Toronto-based, twenty-year film industry veteran.
He often works as a 1st AD, and 2nd Unit Director on large film and TV productions throughout Canada. Between larger gigs, Hagarty directs/shoots/edits and flies drones on music, dance, art and promo films for local artists. He is also an accomplished painter who has exhibited and sold work internationally.

Hagarty’s first BravoFACT short 'Dave vs Death' had a very successful festival and awards run in 2012. His follow-up 'The Golden Ticket' lit up the international festival circuit in 2013/14, picking up many nominations & wins including the 2014 DGC Award for 'Best Short Film’.

Hagarty’s third BravoFACT short ‘Home in Time’ is the very last one to ever be funded. The wild, irreverent, Christmas time-travel comedy is currently being pitched as a TV series. 

Hagarty also has a feature film in late stages of development. His adaptation of the hit play ’52 Pick-Up’ will shoot in 2021.
