John Murphy

A native of Sioux City and filmmaker at heart, I graduated from University of Northern Iowa with a B.A. in Digital Media Production & Performance.

I’m a man of few words when you first meet me. Until you get me talking about movies, then I can talk for hours.

As a lifelong fan of films, I plan to use my cinematic eye to create stories that engage viewers both verbally and visually.

Before joining KCAU, I operated my own YouTube channel as a creative outlet for my filmmaking hobby and so I could learn about the finer details of production such as lighting and editing.

I have a long list of favorite films that includes Jurassic Park, Jaws, Back to the Future, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, and many more. I view Spielberg, Scorcese, Hitchcock, and Cameron as my main influences as a filmmaker.

Aside from movies, I love music with Classic Rock being my favorite genre and The Who as my all time favorite band.
