Ant Farm

Brian Murphy is a music supervisor at Ant Farm, one of the industry’s top film and theatrical marketing agencies, where he spends his days (and some nights) selecting music for some of the industry’s biggest blockbusters and global marketing campaigns as well as for independent projects. After graduating from Manhattan College he moved west to work at Mojo LLC, a successful trailer house, where he assisted and learned from two well respected music supervisors on major theatrical campaigns such as Harry Potter, Crazy Stupid Love, SuckerPunch, Green Lantern and Hunger Games among others. He moved to Ant Farm where he now works on campaigns for theatrical, TV promotional spots and video games. Recent campaigns include Transformers, American Hustle, Wolf of Wall Street, Taken 3, The Gambler, Anchorman, Edge Of Tomorrow & Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Recent video game campaigns include Far Cry 4, Assassin’s Creed, Call Of Duty and Watch Dogs. He enjoys placing major and indie artists in projects like Laggies, Star Trek Into the Darkness, Serena, Davinci’s Demons, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Call Of Duty: Ghosts. In his off hours he enjoys drawing, hanging out with friends and going to the movies.
