Director Biography - Ricardo Patino

Member of Team Legacy Stunts. Born in Puerto Rico. I was a disciple of Kathleen Boback (Assitant director Titanic, The Fugitive, Minority Report, etc) from who I learn from storytelling. Also, my other mentor was Art Smith (Super Mario Brothers, Snake Eye, Anger Management and more) from who I learn about Line producing. Since a very young age, I started practicing martial arts, inspired by movies like Bruce Lee Enter the Dragon, Jackie Chan Drunken fist and Chuck Norris movies. At the age of 5 started practicing Judo but it wouldn't be until the age of 11 when I would realize martial arts was going to be a very important aspect of my future. I started practicing Kajukenbo under Sifu Sixto Mendez who was recognized in 2016 grandmaster of the year and part of the Martial Arts Hall of Fame. I learned discipline and dedication that change my way of life. Kajukenbo gave me the opportunity to found a new inspiration which was Mark Dacascos famous for the Movie Only the strong which led me into practicing with one of my best friends almost all the choreography and dialogues of the movie. Inspire by Jackie Chan movies and the story of China's famous hero Won Fei hung I started practicing Siu Lum Kung-Fu and Hung Gar under Sifu David Gonzalez. While in college and practicing Kung-fu I became part of the judo and wrestling Team winning several medals. From there I finished my Fine arts College degree and continue on the martial art world experimenting with Aikido and other martial arts. My passion for not only martial arts but arts, in general, lead me to seek a master degree in digital arts. Inspire by movies like Star Wars, Goonies, Indiana Jones, The Labyrinth, Neverending Story, The Matrix, Harry Potter and many more movies and TV series like Fringe, I started learning more of the technical part behind filming and movies which later help me in combining both to create experiences through choreography and fight choreography base on storytelling.

Other martial art is driven shorts like "The Vengeance" with the vibe of traditional fight sequences like the ones found in the Hong Kong style of movies. Later on, I had the opportunity to have an important role in "Muroni: el ultimo vampiro" where I played one of the main villain characters in the feature film. Worked on all the fighting sequence and choreography of "El peregrino" another short film with a dystopia theme. Had the opportunity to be involve with Kelvin Galloza (Spiderman, Batman vs superman) on the thriller "The gift of friendship". Also worked as an "extra" for the full feature film "La ultima gira".
