28/03/2012 - Michael Murphy (pictured), former Chief Executive of Windmill Lane Entertainment, has launched a new company Rockabill Media that offers post-production services across film and television drama as a co-producer, and also in accessing the Irish tax incentives to package services in Ireland.
In his role with Windmill Murphy was one of those who attracted business into Ireland. His recent credits include Luc Besson’s Lockout and Mary Harron’s The Moth Diaries.
Murphy said, “My ambition is to provide a completely transparent funding structure so that all aspects of the financing process are visible and accessible to my clients, and of course I am very interested in seeing where I can add value to projects.”
Prior to joining Windmill Lane, Murphy founded and programmed Channel 6 in Ireland, which he sold to TV3 in September 2008. He was also formerly Director of Digital Television at Irish telecommunications company EIRCOM and Content Director at Yes Television.
