Joseph M. Petrick (born January 4, 1982) is an American writer and director best known for his film collaborations with Andrew Bowser, including writing and co-directing the independent comedy The Mother of Invention. Joseph Morley Petrick was born in Iowa City, Iowa. While he, his mother and sister (actress Ruby Wendell) moved around frequently after the divorce of his parents, the majority of his adolescence was spent in the midwest. An aspiring filmmaker even in his youth, he wrote and directed short films throughout junior high and high school that he would screen on the local Public-access television cable TV channel. While attending The School of Visual Arts, where he majored in film and screenwriting, he met Andrew Bowser and the two began collaborating on short films. In 2001, the two created a short film called Notes From The Rogues Gallery that would be the precursor to the film they would make in 2006. Petrick & Bowser also co-directed the music video of Eponine for the band Ozma in 2002 which was selected by Kung-Fu Records through a running online contest.
