After a series of Super 8 shorts with Tsk-Tsk-Tsk in the early ’80s, and the experimental short feature Salt, Saliva, Sperm & Sweat in 1988, Philip Brophy made his feature directorial debut with Body Melt in 1993. He has scored and sound-designed most of his films and composed music for numerous short films.

As a writer and speaker on film, Philip Brophy specialises in three distinct areas: horror, sex & exploitation, film sound & music, and Japanese animation. He is widely published in all three areas internationally, and has curated numerous programmes for the Melbourne International Film Festival.
