Founder & Creative Director

Pat Williams

Who stands behind the brand, the work, your video?

Close up
I started a public relations firm in 2006 with four clients the first day. Since then, as an advisor to newsmakers, I’ve worked with the finest roster of clients on The Treasure Coast: leaders in law, medicine, real estate, medical research, environmental protection, private education, finance, sports, arts and culture, non-profits, and foundations.

The seeds of storytelling were planted when I was a young girl growing up just outside Chicago in a family that owned a legendary dining and entertainment landmark for three generations. There were always prominent people and interesting characters popping up in my childhood telling stories with vivid detail and exaggeration even a ten-year old could detect. Whether at the dinner table or backstage, it was fascinating to hear grown-ups retell their adventures and accomplishments described with wit, humor, and lots of drama. I was hooked, and longed to tell stories that could draw people to notice, lean in and listen up.

After college and two years as museum director, I took the helm of that beloved family business for 20-years, and along the way we were named Illinois Family Business of Year. In the late 90’s I sold the business, left the frigid Midwest winters behind and started writing on Florida’s sunny Atlantic coast. A weekly Palm Beach Post column led to editing a weekly publication for Scripps Newspapers and eventually to joining Regan Communications, the sixth largest privately owned public relations firm in the country as VP of Florida Operations. After that Master Class in PR, it was time to hang out my shingle.

Then, the video revolution got my attention.

Taking storytelling to the next level with video seemed possible. With a talented director, Jeff Jones, it was. Our first documentary, Jane Davis Doggett: Wayfinder in the Jet Age, got nominated for an Emmy Award and syndicated on PBS in markets across the country.

When technology delivered us Facebook, Instagram, Tik Tok and Twitter, storytelling was transformed and suddenly the world had a two-minute attention span. I teamed up with Jeff Jones one more time and turned to making micro-documentaries, telling stories in 30, 60 and 90 seconds.

Stories of interesting people, their endeavors, adventures, and triumphs will never go out style. We just keep finding new ways to tell them. We can tell your story. Let’s talk.

Exploring the World of Pat Williams Productions: Unveiling Captivating Storytelling and Emmy-Nominated Documentaries

In the vibrant landscape of Florida’s creative scene, two remarkable individuals converged, setting in motion a collaboration that would redefine the world of documentaries and television commercials. This is the story of Pat Williams and her journey into the realm of short-form storytelling, propelled by her passion for narrative craftsmanship and a fateful introduction.

Pat’s fascination with storytelling began during her days as a journalist and later as a publicist. Her innate ability to recognize captivating narratives led her to a pivotal moment in November 2001 when she interviewed the late Jane Davis Doggett. Jane, an unsung pioneer, had revolutionized how people navigated airports and vast public spaces with her groundbreaking environmental graphic designs and wayfinding systems. Despite the accolades, Jane’s remarkable story remained largely untold, and the profile Pat crafted for the Palm Beach Post merely scratched the surface of her extraordinary life and career.

Fast forward to 2017—a pivotal moment. The world of storytelling was undergoing a transformation, driven by the rise of video as a dynamic medium. Pat, armed with a vision and the resources to bring it to life, was eager to translate Jane’s remarkable journey into this evolving landscape. With Jane’s enthusiastic participation and the stage set for a new endeavor, Pat embarked on this creative journey.

Yet, the creative process had its own timeline and budget, and what emerged from this journey was a thirty-minute documentary entitled “Jane Davis Doggett: Wayfinder in the Jet Age.” PBS featured and syndicated this documentary for two years, far exceeding their initial vision of a brief five-minute feature. Instead, their narrative traced the extraordinary journey of a southern belle from Nashville to Yale, New York City, and across the globe. Jane’s pioneering wayfinding systems, now ubiquitous in virtually every airport, had found their rightful place in history.

In 2018, South Florida PBS nominated their documentary for an Emmy, marking a significant milestone in their creative journey. Although the coveted award remained elusive, the experience and fulfillment gleaned from creating a compelling thirty-minute documentary ignited a new spark within Pat. Today, she is on a mission to explore yet another storytelling format—the 60-second micro-documentary. This is a testament to the enduring power of storytelling and the creative spirit that drives Pat Williams to continually seek new horizons in the world of narrative craftsmanship.
