Welcome. I’m Luke Murphy, a writer, designer, and filmmaker from Ireland, based in Toronto.
I'm the writer and animator of the Discovery Channel's Mother Nature Is Trying to Kill You, presented by Dan Riskin and based on his bestselling book.
I make animated and live action films, animated sequences for documentaries, title sequences, and visual effects for movies and TV.
I also write articles and sci fi and fantasy fiction, and I design websites, logos, printed pieces, and illustrations.
