Pelt

a narrative film in English

After committing murder, Rufus must decide between keeping his dark deed a secret or exposing his crime to save the woman he loves, from the very man he killed.

"Pelt" is a supernatural period thriller, with a dark fairy tale quality, mixing themes of desire, jealousy and guilt. Inspired by many sources, such as old European folk lore, and native American myths. The film acted as my Senior Thesis film during my time at film school. Filmed on location at the Fort Clatsop Replica outside of Sea side Oregon

Pelt won the gold award for student film category in the Oregon Film awards.

'STOP'

a narrative film in English

"Beautifully performed and nicely shot, this film satisfyingly and impressively plumbs deep emotional depths in a very short time" - David Oyelowo (Selma, Lincoln, Interstellar)

Written and Directed by Paul Murphy, Produced by Mark Downes
Film London and Eastern Edge Film Fund funded short, 2012

“It ain’t easy, but it’s simple…” wise words from someone so young. But can a new life simply be a bus ride away?

A chance bus stop encounter between Karen, a shy, introverted woman and Niki, a loud, over-confident teenage girl takes a deeper turn, when personal secrets are inadvertently revealed, and confessions take the place of pleasantries.

STAY

"This feeling, this inevitable feeling, it comes and goes but it never actually leaves. It consumes me.
I’m here for you…waiting, waiting for you to succumb, but you don’t.
Just like you promised, you’re back yet back is not here, its onto the next.
If you stayed, would I be whole again? Would this feeling disappear? - or will resent ultimately be the test, the
