PATRIOT ACT WITH HASAN MINHAJ

Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj was a Netflix favorite of mine long before I was hired as the Design Director/Episode Lead for Cycles 5 & 6. Leading the Emmy Award-winning graphics team, I merged my passions for design, storytelling, and current events — a humbling position especially during the height of “fake news”. My responsibilities started with analyzing scripts to develop, storyboard, design, and animate custom backgrounds and graphics. I also collaborated intensively with other departments (writers, news, archival, etc) while pitching concepts, building presentations, revising & adapting ideas to story/joke changes (sometimes minutes before show time!), on top of directing our graphics team to ensure the animation lent the best visual experience to compliment both the writing and Hasan’s performance. Cycle 5 continued the show’s established style: an immersive stage show with a live audience. Cycle 6 moved into quarantine just after taping the first episode. This meant adapting the show’s entire graphic language — built for an irregularly-shaped stage with 8K screens — to a conventional green-screen set up in Hasan’s house. Below, you will find collections of clips from the final taped performance, stills of the final designs, progress imagery, and work that ended up on the cutting room floor from episodes I either Art Directed or those to which I made significant contributions.
