Miles Murphy

Director

Miles Murphy first tasted filmmaking as a child on his father Geoff's film sets, and as a child actor on award-winning kidult drama The Fire-Raiser. Alongside time in the camera and design departments, he later spent three years in Sydney directing commercials, with occasional assignments in Asia. Murphy has also won attention with his short films: The Knock (2006) played at festivals in Italy, the United Kingdom and the United States, while two-hander Morepork was nominated at Kiwi film festival Show Me Shorts, and exploding head tale Autocraniotomous came third in the 2013 48 Hours film contest.

As a young adult I decided I didn't want to work in film and television. I  grew up on and around film sets. Sometimes working, sometimes getting in the way. I decided only crazy people would want to do it for a living. But it didn't take long before I got sucked straight back in. Guess I must be one of the crazies. Miles Murphy
