Los Angeles-based Whitehouse Post has hired editor Chris Murphy. Murphy previously spent nearly a decade at Relish in his hometown of Toronto. During his time there, he cut spots for clients including Google, Bose and Habitat for Humanity and developed relationships with directors Miles Jay, Jon+Torey and Aircastle.
“We are very excited for Chris to join us in LA,” says Whitehouse Post executive producer Joni Williamson. “His work is both funny and brimming with beautiful, fluid moments that make you feel the magic of life.”
Murphy’s work has garnered many industry awards, including Cannes Lions, Clios, One Show, D&AD and AICE awards. The viral hit “Catvertising” for agency John St. was listed by Time in its top 10 online videos of the year. In addition to his commercial work, Murphy’s short films have been shown at the Tribeca Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival. Murphy will relocate to the west coast this month and will continue to be represented by Relish for Toronto-based work.
