Smart Guys is a sitcom written, produced, and starring Paul Ritchey, Nick Murphy, and Josh Henderson.
Smart Guys is a six-episode situation comedy about friendships, quarter-life crises, and video games. Paul, Nick, and Josh are our dimwitted, down on their luck heroes, who until now never had to face adulthood. To make matters worse, their ex-roommate Pete has become a diabolical businessman bent on dominating the video game industry along with destroying the guys' friendship.
Paul, Nick, and Josh figure the best way to show Pete they'll be fine without him is to beat him at his own game (because they're smart guys *WINK*). So the trio sets out to create the world's greatest video game, but the first of many obstacles in their way is they know nothing about making a video game.
The Lost Starfighter is a Star Wars fan film from Nick Murphy, Paul Ritchey, and Samuel Hall. It chronicles the misadventures of Blue Squadron as they complete their last day of training. One of Blue Two's pranks sends Blue Five to the wrong coordinates and into enemy territory.
The Lost Starfighter took almost two years to make from script to postproduction. Actors in full costumes were filmed against green-screen and backgrounds were created and composited using Cinema 4D and Nuke. A full-sized Rodian puppet was created and operated by Monkey Boys Productions (SNL, The Tonight Show, Ben In The Desert), filmed against red-screen, and voiced by Mick Lauer (RicePirateMick). The score was composed by Jared Forman (Star Wars Rebels, Making a Murderer). The Lost Starfighter was directed and written by Nick Murphy & Paul Ritchey from the YouTube series, Continue?, in collaboration with one-man-VFX-guru, Samuel Hall.
