After working as an art director on features, TV dramas and commercials in his 20s including decade-spanning miniseries Bread & Roses — Murphy began directing commercials himself in 1995. Since then he has scored a long line of advertising awards, and worked everywhere from Bangkok to the United States. In 2017 he directed his debut feature Pork Pie, a remake of his father Geoff Murphy’s legendary road movie Goodbye Pork Pie (1981).
