2020's short film, Life is a Burger, features Patrick as himself and a burlesque dance performance by Femme Brulée in a florid fantasy about food and life with ALS.

2015 Tribeca Film Festival Award-winning feature length documentary, TransFatty Lives, is available through multiple online distributors. It is the story of an artist becoming a man and in that journey, a father. The backdrop for this fundamental human experience is a riveting roller coaster ride through physical paralysis and spiritual emancipation.
