- Pat Blewitt, Inovativ
We had the unique privilege to chat with Pat Blewett the founder of INOVATIV, an All-American cinematic solutions company, who knows the value of having the right gear. In this episode, Pat shares the trials-and-tribulations of building (literally) game-changing products from the ground up. Keep an ear out for real gems about the recipes for success, overcoming adversity, and most of all patience.
INOVATIV was founded in November 2010 by Patrick Blewett a seasoned film professional, and legendary mountain bike builder Brent Foes. However it wasn’t until 2013 that INOVATIV as it operates today really began to take shape. It began in 2005. Patrick had created a digital capture company called Ambient Digital, or Ambient as it was often called. Ambient catered to high-end advertising photographers who were making the switch from film to digital and needed guidance and technical know-how to properly execute each project. Ambient Digital’s technicians would manage the digital content that was being created on a daily basis. It was from years of working on-set that INOVATIV was first conceived. Patrick needed to have a far better on-set and mobile work station for his technicians that at the time was not offered in the market place. In January of 2010, Patrick offically created INOVATIV based on his company’s needs for a better on-set mobile system. In February 2010, Patrick met with legendary mountain bike builder Brent Foes to bring his ideas to reality.
