We conjure up new and original scripts with the writing talent of Ruffs Furze Films founder, Peter Halpin. He has been writing comedy scripts since 2008 for theatre, film, commercials and stand-up acts. His work has received recognition and respect from many in the upper echelons of the industry, as well as being the creator of multi award winning short comedy, Harvest.

Peter has worked as an actor in film, TV and theatre for over 15 years, as well as being a comedian for several years, so his understanding of the business, the art and the process is second to none.

We have produced bespoke scripts for actors, film students and new film makers, taking their ideas, needs and specs to create quality comedy content for them.


“I really loved it, and was really impressed how funny and poignant your script is.”
[Jill Greenacre, actor – The Brittas Empire, Doc Martin]

“A fun script, it comes off the page really easily. I would love to be involved in more.”
[Cathy Shipton, actor – Casualty, Hollyoaks, One Foot In The Grave]

“I commissioned Peter to write for BBC Comic Relief and Babybel. His work is speedy, top quality, and professional.

He hit the brief perfectly, with a really cleverly written script for an online film, and a comprehensive list of jokes and wordplay used on product wrappers.

I would certainly recommend Peter to anyone for comedy writing work.”
[Elliott Tiney, Senior Creative, Wunderman Thompson UK]


Ruffs Furze Films’ first film, ‘Harvest’, was produced in 2021. We started as we mean to go on, with a team including both new, passionate talent and experienced professionals.

‘Harvest’ has been a big success on the International Film Festival circuit, collecting numerous awards including multiple Best Comedy wins and an award for Best Directorial Debut.

This has given us huge confidence in our ethos and ambitions, and confirms that what we are doing is both right and very good!

There are many plans for both short and long term future projects, kicking on next with more short film pieces. These will connect more people across the spectrum of experience, as well as being entered into relevant festivals and competitions.

This way we get to spread the great word of teamwork, trust in local undiscovered talent, and of course great comedy. It might even land us another award or few!


We specialise in comedy. It’s what we know and do best. The successes of Ruffs Furze Films’ founder, Peter Halpin, are predominantly in comedy (as a performer, writer and director), so it’s the strongest foundation on which to build this company. And on strong foundations, things hold up pretty darn well.

Comedy is essential in life. We all need a time to laugh; it’s when we’re at our most true self and is a great way to connect with others. They don’t say ‘laughter is the best medicine’ for nothing!
