To win you must fight as an individual.’

Patrick Uden
After graduating from the Royal College of Art Film & TV School in 1969, Patrick quickly became a Senior Producer-Director in the BBC Science Department during which time he was nominated 3-times for a BAFTA. At Channel 4’s inception in 1982, he left the BBC to create one the UK’s first independent production companies: Uden Associates Ltd. After 21 pioneering years running this much-admired company, he simply closed it in 2004 (rather than sell it) so he could become free to do as he wished.

Shortly after this, he created his microindie: Uden-Media Ltd offering his services to broadcasters, indies and corporate clients on structure, team-building, commentary-writing etc, 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 called FourDocs and co-created the UK version of The Apprentice, Series II & III of The Restaurant and many other hit shows.

Lena chois sin ar an 27ú Aibreán, beidh deis ag rannpháirtithe cruinniú a bheith acu le Patrick ina nduine is ina nduine chun a gcuid smaointe formáide a phlé leis.

Patrick Uden
Tar éis dó céim a bhaint amach ón Royal College of Art Film & TV School i 1969, rinneadh Léiritheoir/Stiúrthóir Sinsearach de Patrick sách sciobtha i Rannóg Eolaíochta an BBC.  Le linn a thréimhse ansin, ainmníodh é 3 huaire do ghradam BAFTA. Nuair a tháinig Channel 4 ar an bhfód i 1982, d’fhág sé an BBC chun ceann de chéad chomhlachtaí neamhspleácha léiriúcháin na Ríochta Aontaithe a bhunú: Uden Associates Ltd. Tar éis 21 bliain a chaitheamh i mbun an chomhlachta seo, comhlacht ceannródaíoch a raibh an-mheas air, thograigh sé é a dhúnadh in 2004 (seachas é a dhíol) ionas go mbeadh saoirse aige chun a rogha rud a dhéanamh.

Go luath ina dhiaidh sin, bhunaigh sé a chomhlacht micri-indie féin: Uden-Media Ltd, trína dtairgeann sé a chuid seirbhísí do chraoltóirí, lucht indie agus cliaint chorparáideacha maidir le struchtúr, obair i gcomhar, tráchtaireacht phinn etc. Lena chois sin, cíorann sé meáin nua atá ar an bhfód, ar nós dearadh aipe IOS, lena chomhlacht eile Heuristic-Media Ltd. Bronnadh duais BAFTA air in 2006 as a láithreán gréasáin nuálaíoch, FourDocs, mar a dtaispeántar cláir fhaisnéise de chuid Channel Four. Bhí sé ar dhuine de chruthaitheoirí an leagain Shasanaigh den tsraith The Apprentice, Sraith II agus III de The Restaurant agus go leor sraitheanna eile a bhfuil an-tóir orthu.
