M. H. Murray, born Mathew Hubert Murray, is an emerging filmmaker and writer based in Toronto, Canada.
He created his first web series, Teenagers, when he was 19 years old. The series—which he also wrote, directed, and edited—ran for three seasons, screened at festivals internationally, and has been viewed more than 10 million times on YouTube. NOW Magazine called the series “provocative, sexy, and addictive.” For his work on the series, he won Best Canadian Series and Best Screenplay at the Vancouver Web Series Festival, among other accolades. In 2016, the Mississauga Arts Council honoured Murray with the award for Best Emerging Media Artist. In 2017, he was nominated for Best Director by the International Academy of Web Television.
His short film work includes Inside the Whale (2014), which was selected for the National Screen Institute’s Online Short Film Festival, and Stephanie’s Room (2015), which won the 48 Hour Film Project in Toronto. His forthcoming short film, Ghost, is slated for a 2020 release.
In his final year of film school, he launched Black Elephant, a film production company. He is currently developing his feature film directorial debut, several short films, screenplays, television pilots, web series, and a collection of short non-fiction prose.
He also works as a freelance writer, editor, and videographer. Hire him.
