Director Biography - Richard Williams

Richard has worked in sales for over 20 years but has had a love and fascination with films since he was a young boy. Over the last few years Richard has been writing screenplays for short films and feature films of all genres. After being made redundant Richard decided it was the right time to pursue his desire to make films. In early 2016 he created a successful kickstarter campaign and raised the necessary funds to make his first short film, the horror, "That's Not Funny" He was able to secure an experienced cast and crew and oversaw all aspects of the film making process, including set design, costume design, casting and finally editing.

Director Statement

Murrain was born from the idea that I could get together a cast and crew who would be willing to work for free to make a short film. The crew were all working professionals, the four main characters are working actors, three from the same family and the supporting artists were friends and family. The entire production cost me only £25 for materials and bottled water! I decided to write a traditional British folk horror, the likes of which haven't been seen for many years, the most famous and notable being Christopher Lee's "The Wicker Man", to which this film pays tribute.
