Director Biography - Paul Murphy

I am an Irish-born, London-based award winning director and writer.

My latest short silent comedy 'Wipeout' was made in 7 days as part of the Aarhus Short Film Challenge 2014. We won an Honourable Mention and were in the Top Ten Films of the Festival.

My Film London funded drama ‘Stop’ has had enormous success on the international film festival circuit, winning many awards, including two Best Actor Awards, playing in eighteen festivals thus far, and was Rankin’s Collabor8te ‘Film of the Week’ early this year.

‘Crossed Lines’ my first short film, was funded by the RTE/Film Base short film scheme and had a successful run on Irish television.

"Next!’ an online comedy series I directed with comedians Haiste and Lawrence was on the long list for the 2014 British Comedy Awards.

My clients include Saatchi & Saatchi, Auspicium, Volkswagen, Barclays, The Sunday Times, MTV, The Times, Unilever, and Diesel.

I used to be a 1st AD, with over twelve years experience in features, TV dramas, commercials, and promos, a skill base that proves very valuable in my directing career.

I am currently working with a number of writers, developing my next short film, a feature idea, and I am actively seeking opportunities to direct television drama.
